Herron VTPH-2A vs ModWright PH 9.0
@three_easy_payments Thanks for your thoughts on the Luxman. You might have gotten bad or fake Tele’s, but I’ve heard them sound hot rides to the point that they almost distort. In full transparency, I love the Psvane 12AX7-s above any other 12AX7... 
Herron VTPH-2A vs ModWright PH 9.0
@three_easy_payments Thanks for your thoughts on the Herron and the Luxman. I’ve always itched to try the Luxman myself and likely will one day. Have you rolled tubes in it? If so what are your preferences? I may have misspoke with the Herron. Wh... 
Herron Audio VTPH-2A - Modwright PH 9.0X - Icon audio ps1 mkii
@audiosaurusrex I used the blue then the orange. I haven’t stepped up to the purple yet because every component I own uses SR fuses of some sort, and that’s not an itch I can afford to scratch right now. I thought the blue was the best bang for th... 
Herron Audio VTPH-2A - Modwright PH 9.0X - Icon audio ps1 mkii
@audiosaurusrex Awesome! Did you go for the PH9.0 or X? I ended up upgrading mine with Reflektor tubes, both 6N23-P and 6C45 and use a Synergistic Research fuse. All made considerable differences!  
Recommendation for Digital Coax
@dadork I just messaged you privately with some thoughts.   
Herron Audio VTPH-2A - Modwright PH 9.0X - Icon audio ps1 mkii
I just posted this on another forum, but I have heard both and think the PH9.0 and 9.0X kick the living daylights out of the Herron. The Herron is very polite in comparison, with the PH9.0 much more soulful, vibrant and holographic in comparison. ... 
Herron VTPH-2A vs ModWright PH 9.0
I’m sad I only came across this thread now. I compared the Herron VTPH-2A to an older Modwright SWP 9.0 SE and thought the Modwright kicked the living daylights out of the Herron. The Herron was very polite and reserved in comparison, and the SWP ... 
PS Audio SACD upgrade...
Check the PS Audio forums. There’s an incredible thread there with dozens and dozens of users and owners that have provided their findings and experiences from the upgrades. I’ve heard nothing but exponential improvements on the latest Perfectwave... 
Pavane 6sn7 uk version for Schiit Freya plus
From what it seems, many (and myself included) have used tube socket savers to employ tubes with larger sockets into the Freya+. I no longer own one, but when I did this was the route I took. Yes, socket savers add another set of connections and m... 
New Cary DMS 700
Anyone have updates on this piece of kit? I’m curious as to how this sounds compared to the say and Aurender A30, which looks to have a much more sophisticated analog and power architecture, or the DirectStream DAC and bridge combo. 
Synergistic Power Cell 12, SX, PS Audio P20
Resurrecting this to see if anyone can provide quick updates. I have an opportunity to get either a P20 or a SR PowerCell SX with Galileo cable both at attractive prices. I currently own the PowerCell 12 UEF SE with the Atmosphere L3 cable, which ... 
Is it time to upgrade my amp?
I also agree with others - upgrade the speakers before going with a new amp. Or, do both. You can find pretty good tube integrateds used for $1.5-2K and decent speakers in the same range in the $1-1.5K if you’re lucky. I saw a Tekton Perfect SET s... 
Schumann Resonator
Since this debate has started three days ago, skeptics could have already ordered a SG off prime for $14.99, had it delivered, and try it out to come to an informed opinion instead of wasting peoples’ valuable time trying to divert folks from it a... 
Schumann Resonator
@clearthinker - I think the way the system’s sound hits our ears is directly related to how we perceive the sound. On any day, if I sit just a few feet from my primary listening spot, the sound changes because the sound waves hit my ear differentl... 
Schumann Resonator
@roxy54 would you be able to post a pic somehow? How do you place it on top? Does your resonator have a case or is the plate directly on the circuit?
