Gentlemen my apologies for not responding so quickly, work and this problem has kept me pretty busy these past couple of days.
Narrod, Thank You for you comments and yes I’m very pleased with the results I’ve achieved with this system.
Mr. McCormack I will be contacting you sometime soon, I’ve come to the conclusion that I want to get the TLC-1 upgraded I just have a few questions to ask about things I would like to do to it (not sure if they can be done).
Now for the rest of the story. I came home early yesterday and started working on this. After thinking about what Mr. McCormack had to say about the tracking of the volume, I decided to try a 3 meter Kimber Hero between the Sony and the Micro, I was able to get a small amount of volume control to where I could use it at a lower volume but wasn't happy with the sound. My next shot was to replace the Micro with the TLC and use the 1.5 mtr KS1020. Well I now have the volume control I was looking for but not quite the resolution as with the Micro. So I’ve decide to go with the lesser of two evils and wait till I can get the TLC upgraded, I like my hearing better.
For those of you wondering what the differences are, I liken it to looking out a glass window. The Micro with Gold upgrades is a freshly cleaned window with no smudges or smears and the TLC DLX is the same window just dusty. The Micro has more depth and clarity where as the TLC is slightly veiled. But without hearing the two together I wouldn’t have known the difference. So time to make Steve and even busier man than he already is. Unless someone has any better ideas.
Thank You for your help and Happy Listening.
