My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Hello friend Viber, let's keep to the topic of this thread. G. 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
WC's findings with the Nordost Odin1 feeding PSU are quite consistent with the further enhancements I am experiencing by powering my own Rowland Aeris+PSU DAC with the Cardas Clear Beyond XL power cord.... Larger holographic stage, further clarifi...

Hey WC, the PSU's contribution to three-dimensional stage, imaging, and resolution will come in gradually over the next 100 hours or so of the critter gobbling up AC and pumping DC through its ultracapacitors for Corus's benefit.... Corus itself m...

@WhiteCamaross, in case you did not find manuals in the Rowland Corus and PSU cartons, I’ll be sending you their manuals via PM. Connection of PSU to rus is best done following directions in the PSU Getting Started.G.

Thank you Almarg, I was forgetting that Firebird and Polovesian Dances recording from Telark.. In those days at least, Telark had a 6 foot wide bass drum used whenever bassdrum was called for in the score... The effect was telluric. I believe the ...

For "slam" in classical music, one only need try The Rite Of Spring by Igor Stravinsky... I suggest the version conducted by Pierre Boulez, but there are many excellent recordings out there... Or listen to some of the more dynamic movements of Gus...

WC, my own experience with the ROWLAND PSU is that, amongst other things, it has enhanced significantly slam, authority, and macrodynamics to the Rowland Aeris DAC... AlStewart can comment on his findings on PSU applied to the Corus linestage.BTW,...

Just some more detail about my front end... The Esoteric device I use as a transport is the X-01 Limited. I feed its digital signal via the SPDIF coax RCA output to one of the two Rowland Aeris SPDIF BNC inputs via the vabulous Cardas Clear digita...

That's exciting WP... Head's up on PSU... It takes just about one week (Some 150 hours) to break in PSU completely), with the first 72 hours being the most critical.Corus is a different matter all together.... If it is a new unit, break-in will be...

Hello @Pokey77, you are correct, my Criterion went to the Doctor -- the one of reference DAC fame.... I suspectt that if Criterion had been powerable by PSU, Dr. Clott would have Criterion still in his system... But alas no, Criterion was conceive...

Hello Pokey77, my apologies for late answer... I have been travelling for the past week, attending a conference on euphoniums and tubas, and did not bring my laptop with me... So, posting was a little of a chore on my phone.Currently, I am not usi...

Viber6 is referring to the Rowland Power Storage Unit (PSU). This is an external power supply housed in a full chassis. It is  based on ultracapacitors capable of powering simultaneously the Rowland Corus linestage, the Aeris DAC, and the new Rowl...

To be more specific, M925 has a toggle switch in the back to change gain from 26dB to 32dB.BTW, I expect more bass to come in as the amp reblooms.G. 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Hello WC, in case you were interested in trying higher gain on the returning Rowland M925, each chassis has a toggle switch on the back panel which lets you change the gain from the 26dB default to 32dB.Please note that before flipping any of the ...

Hello V6, the relative closeness of M925 with M535 is exclusively something which I experienced with a bridged pair of M535 enhanced with the slip-on caps on the output terminals. I must reiterate that in my own system, the performance of my well ...
