I recommend you just do a search by entering Shindo and look through the past threads, do the same with VAC lots of info. There have been past discusions in relation to this but that being said your ears are still the ones to be satisfied. It's going to greatly depend on the rest of your set-up etc. so always best to get what ever it is that interests you into your own set-up to evaluate.
Best of luck and enjoy!
I have the Auricle Musicblocs as well. If it were me I'd go with a VAC preamp. Going further up the VAC line should make a nice improvement over the Standard LE. Nothing against Shindo, as it is great too, but I suspect there might be better synergy overall with VAC. The VAC systems I hear at audio shows are always among my favorite rooms.
Thanks guys! And yes, one should listen first and it depends on setup, speakers and so on. But in my case listening ja comparing is just not possible. So one must make an educated decision on presumptions, reputation and comments from other users. So that's why I'm asking about experience with the two companies. But it seems there aren't many with experience of both.
But thanks anyway!
Well, I guess the scale has tilted towards VAC... I was a little hasty with the Standard LE preamp, it took some time to run in proparly. Now I'd say no contest... The Shindo Aurieges has a beutifull midrange, but the VAC now has a very nice midrange as well, and everything else the VAC does (quite a bit) better.
