Jolida JD-100A vs. Ah Njoe Tjoeb 4000
Using vacuum tubes as buffers did not impress me at all. For instance, I prefer the Heart CDP or the Jolida CDP over Ah! or any decent CDPs followed by an external tube beffer stage (e.g. a Musical Fidelity X10v3). To me, opamp and tube combinatio... 
Naim Cd Players
I love Naim amps/hicap and CD players. However, honestly, I am against buying old Naim CD players (CD2/CD3/CD3.5/CDX etc.) for various reasons (e-mail me if you want to know). If you like Naim CD player, buy current/recent production of Naim CD pl...

Spendor S3/5 standard vs “SE” version????
S3/5 and S3/5se are not the same speaker once you hear those. The S3/5se yields more resolution and a bit brighter side of the phases of the music. The S3/5se places itself on the side of 'standard hifi'. So it is your taste and, certainly, your s... 
Musical Fidelity's x10-v3 tube output buffer?
I agree with Quadophile. It was nothing but a noise generator.X10-V3 tube even failed to improve $100 Sony CD Player as you and I guessed.I returned mine. 
Musical Fidelity's x10-v3 tube output buffer?
It's been only a few days so far. I am not sure it is all burned-in for fair audiotion. Anyhow, X10-v3 tube buffer does 'volumizing' the presentation or smooth out the texture and the details. Music is a bit slower than before. It helps certain ty...
