Possible. Look, wilson uses transparent cables inside their speakers for instance and the alexx and models above the Alex use their ultra expensive transparent opus cables inside. So what could this possibly mean? That MAAAAAAAAYBE getting transparent opus cables which are ultra expensive could be the best way to go. People don't understand that THIS IS NO DIFFERENT with many industries.
I want everyone to be clear on the fact that there are levels in different industries and only those who don't play at the highest levels tend to be the ones who looooove to criticize (although this is not everyone who does this).
The funny thing here is that 90% of the people who actively post here are still chasing something superior and seeing what they can buy to improve their systems... Doesn’t that really technically turn you into WSS to a certain extent? If the argument is " no because I don’t change all the time like wcss " then that is like saying well, "someone saying he/she is not an alcoholic because they only drink every Friday night until they black out and John drinks Friday, Saturday and Sunday until he passes out.".... Really ? So the frequency of how often you get wasted is what determines if you are an alcoholic? So your soul is spared because you only get SH!t faced Friday. Lol. Only john who drinks Friday Saturday Sunday is going to hell :-)
No need to delete anything. You made valid points and if you are able to hear changes with the tweaks outlined, that's awesome. You got a great thing.
We all hear very different. We all choose different genres of music too. It's very subjective like judging the miss universe pageant. Who determined who's the prettiest woman? How did they arrive at that conclusion? Based on height ? Skin color? Accent? Smile ? Etc etc. Who the hell knows.
Thanks for the info above. I just want to be honest: i don't have hands on experience with mbl so i have to go by what you guys with experience are telling me.
I have heard 101mk2 which are interesting and i do like the looks. My issue is if i bring them and i can't quite get them to sound to my liking then I'm in deep waters.
I will be putting out a video hopefully soon where I will go over all the gear i am currently considering.
Once again speed bump, you stole the words out of my mouth.
If you find the link above offensive, then you might want to look in the mirror and figure out WHY you find it offensive. The link posted doesn’t target a specific person. It is meant to address the negative behavior that occurs from time to time on here and clearly on my YouTube channel.
I found the link informative and it explains certain behavior that occurs here repeatedly. Hell, it actually made me understand the WHYs of such behavior.
Right now, i have a failed experiment: the artesania stand i had the momentum on DOES NOT on the Mephisto because the amp is too massive and there is no way to make it work.
I am also playing with the powercords i have on hand and trying to determine if the odin 1 powercords sound better on the dac/clock or the amp.
ok doctor techno_dude. You are right, i am wrong. Should i ship you my stuff and you send me yours? i am sure since your ears are not "beat up" like mine then you should be able to educate my untrained ear with all the thousands of hours they have in front of some serious components.
Let me know what carrier i should use to ship you the Mephisto. It won’t go via fed ex ground.
Mephisto PLUS Artesania stand is just Woww..... Jeez...the 3d imaging is up, the bass is tighter and deeper and the smoothness is freaky...
You are about to hear a new Mephisto soon...
I'll go on the record here, critical mass stand under Mephisto is not a match. Bad pairing.
More thoughts to come soon !
The ARC won't be at the level of the mephisto. Sure we can improve its sound my adding fuses, footers etc but it won't be able to "drive " the mephisto to its full potential. I am trying to reach the highest performance possible from the mephisto and I don't believe audio research will do this. I believe a solid state Preamp will take it where it needs but finding that is what will be Russian roulette. For now, I have just purchased the next preamplification for it. I will disclose what it is on a future Video.
I will be uploading another video of the mephisto but now with the Merrill Christine Preamp. Once again, you'll be able to hear how EASY it is to hear the change in sound with the Alexia 2 and mephisto. I think deaf people can hear it using their iPads.
