Marko445, can I get your email, when I enter your user name at the member lookup it comes up as an invalid name. I also have the SCD-777ES and am going passive with the EVS Attenuators into the Bel Canto EVo amp. What interconnects are you using? Do you use 2 interconnects in this config.? Did you ever try the EVS Attenuator? What was your system config before trying the Placette? Thanks mikeg.
