Just FYI i'll be going to optimal enchantment in santa monica (nice high-end shop with good people) with some cool guys i've 'met' here at audiogon. we're auditioning the arc ref-1 (which i'm leaning towards right now used), ref2mkII, arc LS25, LS5, LS15, AI mod3a and the new BAT stuff. I can't wait. I'm bringing my little space-tech as a reference. i'll let you guys know how it holds up. i think it's going to be embarrassing for some of the products at optimal enchantment. this is the bottom line space-tech. their preamps go all the way up to $3,800 i think. a TAD outa my price range unless i can get one used. but i'll post again and let you guys know the score. can't wait. (i'd also like to try different tubes in this space-tech but that's for a later post)
oh yeah, i forgot because i posted this elsewhere but if anyone wants to join us at optimal enchantment please do. we'll be there at 12:30 sat may 5th (tomorrow. today! acutally). they're in santa monica (310) 393-4434 by the beach and a famous shopping area if you're into that (read: wife). it's a great shop. i've never bought anything from them, though, but i've only heard good stuff - we'll see. you can check out the space-tech too. Please, please, anyone who is interested come on down. none of us know each other except from this freaky place so it'll be fun and laid-back. leave wallets at HOME!
