1. Loaner Cardas speakercables. Suddenly my speakers and amp sounded just right. Beforehand I tried for months to get the sound right but was never successful. Sold the speakers right after, because I had dreams for something better mmmm.... Still think about that system.
2. Wadia 9 classic dac. This dac is simply possessed. It does everything, and I mean everything right and then some. Huge difference with my previous dacs. It cost too much actually. But I can't let it go.
3. Proton D1200 monoblock version 2x with Alón II. This combination is magic. It has the top end sparkle that eludes me at the moment. And that sparkle is special! But are also the fastest amps I own. With good recordings it has gravitas and a organic seamlessness which are difficult too beat, with all kind of music. Why in the hell did I sold those speakers?
