@david_ten thanks so much, David. It will be great fun to see how they sound in a few different systems, now that olesno and I will soon be getting them.
@olesno You must be thrilled! Please keep us posted on any developments.
@jcarcopo I didn't get a chance to play much with the 3400 yet and didn't do any "room perfect" experimenting but I have to tell you that right after I put it in my system and replaced my Pass XA25 I already heard some really good things happening. I will be putting my Pass up for sale... Great amp as it is it's not a match for the 3400 (in my system and in my room).
@waltersalas My Encores should be arriving soon and I will share my impressions after a while. The problem for me will be getting the speakers and the new amp more or less at the same time.
@jcarcopo Congrats on jumping on the Lyngdorf. Since I am a few weeks behind you and olesno in getting my Encores, I will be paying rapt attention to your impressions of the Lyngdorf/Encore pairing.
@olesno I hear you regarding the introduction of more than one more change in your system at once. It makes it more challenging to figure out what is doing what. Of course, as long as you love the difference in the sound in your room, who really cares?
One more question: are you running any sources through the 3400, or using it exclusively? I posted a separate discussion thread attempting to get feedback on which phono stages play nicely with the Lyngdorf, but I don't think anyone has responded yet.
Do either of you guys have analog rigs?
