Hmmm... We should consider that WCSS is having fun, first and foremost.... While his never-ending quest is often a source of information/inspiration for many of us, he is not running a Customer Service group chat under contract.... As such, Many p...

You are right WCSS.... And my bad habit is to start "conducting" when there is a piece that really excites me... And subvocalize the bass line to boot.... All fine when I do it at home, but you can't believe how annoying that was for ppl at RMAF.....

Vivid and Luxman make for a very nice match, no doubt about it. Vivid seem to work best with amps that are very musical, very much like Luxman, as well as my own fave brand... You are sure to enjoy them!Saluti, Guido

If I remember correctly, a 30A outlet looks nothing like a regular outlet.... And requires a specialized 30A AC connector.G.

Hello WCSS, rather than fiddling with eBay, I suggest you call Scott Markwell at Elite Audio Video, the Furutech distributor to the US.... Scott is a fab guy, and the ultimate source of Furutech info: Elite Audio Video Distribution P.O. Box 93896...

Hello WCSS, like you, my bet is on Luxman.... Krell+Ref10 is likely to outperform Luxman in sheer muscularity.... Luxman is more likely to yield a more nuanced experience.G.

WC, Clear is these days far from the Cardas state-of-art.... You should really consider Cardas Clear Beyond XL for PCs, and Clear Beyond for analog ICs and speaker wires... Cardas Clear does remain the top digital IC instead.G. 
No-one talks about Rowlands anymore
Hello YYZ, @Alsteward might be able to tell us a bit about the sound of Daemon, as he has heard it at Expona.... I have not heard of direct comparisons of M535 with M825 or M925. However, all reports are that M535 is stunningly good for its $5900 ...

Hello WCSS, when you had the Rowland m925 monos in the system, did you plug the monoblocks into a power conditioner, or each into a dedicated 20A AC line?G.
