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...

|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...
