Atma-sphere Updates
I own MA-1 mk3.1 upgraded to mk3.3 and MP-1 mk3.3. Once the MP-1 arrived, I quickly replaced the three fuses on the power supply unit. Ever since, I always complained to Ralph, his preamp hummed so badly. The phono stage also making noise. Ralph t... 
What kind of listener are you?
I'm classically trained singer. I listen to music and not only sound. The music has to be able to move me. 
How many people here generally buy used?
I do..as long as the seller provides multiple angles of the products and honest about the defects. I also have to check the feedback left for the seller all this time. 
Tube Preamp with Solid State Amp?
I have Aesthetix Eclipse Linestage and paired it with Aesthetix Atlas mono in the past. Can't literally say it's solid state as Atlas is hybrid amp. It worked so well. Then I replaced the amp with Atma-sphere MA-1. Goosebumps. Later I purchased At... 
Albums that you listen to straight through / start to finish whenever you put them on!
Me always John Denver..I can listen to it while doing my washing and cleaning at the same time. 
Seriously considering tube preamp…opinions?
Atma-sphere MP-3..you'll simply love it as long as you have low noise tubes to accommodate it. 
Pure Audio Project Quintet
How do you find your Quintet 15 with Voxativ 1.6? I wonder how it would sound with Voxativ Alnico which is a 4" driver.

That would be a great setup and plus one more thing, FTA usb cable. 
Considering getting a CD player (again). Used? New? Criteria?
I think a vintage Sony CDP will be wonderful.. :) 
Why does my old CD player sound so much better than my new streamer?
I used to own Micromega + a DIY DAC..it sounded pretty awesome..I then retired for 3 years and got my inch back starting with Oppo BDP-105..as time goes by, I have used Auralic Aries + Lampizator Golden Gate, followed with Aqua La Diva + Lampizato... 
Best budget streamer on the market now?
Auralic is a budget streamer for me. I don't know other brands because they're not easily available in Indonesia. Even for Auralic, when I bought it few years back, I had to fly to Thailand. 
ATMA SPHERE SCHEMATIC for a UV-1 M/M.......
Old post but I couldn't help but chip in. Perhaps OP should stick to reparing TV instead of audio stuffs. Comparing TV with audio stuffs is a very biased view. Are you saying Ralph sells more of his audio stuffs vs any brand of TV worldwide? The m...
