Joule Electra VZN 100 Need help
Got it sorted out myself. In the end, I really could find a mistake in wiring. I just trimmed and reset all the connections. But something happened. There's no hum anywhere and the amps sound even more amazing.Thanks again for your help. 
NAD M51 wish PC based connectivity
Thanks for the responses. I've gotten J-River to work with the NAD. There was a playback mode section at the bottom of a file type window I missed that was set to "automatic". Strange location IMO.Even after giving up the Jriver engineers found th... 
Review: NAD m51 DA converter
I received my M51 ~25 days ago so I've been spending some time testing with the M51’s generous amount of connectivity.I've written this review on another site some weeks ago and thought I'd share/add to AG comrades. Comparisons with other DACs alt... 
Joule Electra VZN 100 Need help
Hey guys thanks for the posts. I brought this on myself by wanting to rid the amps of those cheesy power cords. Simple enough but it wasn't. I didn't take any pictures like a total idiot. I assumed they were wired identically like an idiot. They a... 
Joule Electra VZN 100 Need help
The problem is that I rewired the power inlets (the ones without the fuse holder) and I'm pretty sure I mis-wired one of those, somehow, as I was damn careful. I was also under the illusion that they carried AC. My stupidity. The variac wiring see... 
what is the best amp you've ever heard
Now that I own them after a week, the Joule Electra VZN100 is the best sounding amp I've heard to date. This after owning the Decware Torii MkIII which is no slouch. This by a wide margin. 
Anyone got GR Research Super V
Well, this is an old thread, but I have an answer - sort of.I have the Super V's. I have a Decware Torii MK III. And I have Synergistic Research Telsa speaker cables.The sort-of is because I'm burning in the V-Caps after a rebuild of the Torii... ... 
Oppo BDP-95 sounds GREAT?
I have my BDP-95 running a 3TB "My Book" through its USB port. I've also used the eSata port and may try that again. It was a bit flaky for me. I am interested on a possible difference in quality - USB vs eSata.Note: You cannot use a drive larger ... 
Oppo BDP-95 sounds GREAT?
I have an Oppo BDP-83SE which has been modded and have owned the 95 since they were introduced. The 95 compared to the modded 83 is apples to oranges. They play differently, the 83 with a bit more resolution and the 95 being smoother with a lower ... 
Review: NAD m51 DA converter
Sir, I note that you own a BDP-93. Would you suggest that the NAD delivers a far more compelling sound than does the well respected Oppo? I happen to own the BDP-95 which uses a higher grade DAC but in search of a standalone unit I could live with... 
Tube amp decision - Thoughts
I became part of a long list of folks waiting to get thier Decware Torii Mk III. 91 customers ahead of me! That'll give me time to build a set of GR-Research Super V's, open baffle speakers with a 97db senstivity. I still want to build something f... 
Audio Note Interstage Kit - Who's heard this?
Thanks for the input Rodge827. I will have to explore at least one of the AN kits to build, possibly the phono stage. 
Audio Note Interstage Kit - Who's heard this?
Thanks Doug, great information. I might guess that you don't have those coveted, exotic double C tranformers? 
Audio Note Interstage Kit - Who's heard this?
I'm looking for a broader opinion. Of course the folks in the Audio Note forum are highly enthusiastic about the Audio Note kits.More hopeful about a comparison between this interesting tube amp and say, a Cary, or a Manley. I just don't see much ... 
Tube amp decision - Thoughts
I'm actually thinking about building a higher sensitivity speaker. Gr-Research has a speaker called the Super-V which is tube friendly at 97db. It appeared to be very popular at the RMAF. Wish I could have been there.That would open up possibiliti...
