Preamp Deal of the Century
Now that we've cleared up a few things, a couple of matters worth mentioning. Yes, hiss is documented as a possibility in the manual(s) -- but not from the remote; it is dependent on the setting of the gain knob (and gain switch). And for those wh...

@noske You are trolling. Please go away. Unlike many other threads on Agon, this one is for people seriously interested in Supratek products and the experience of using them.

@noske I don’t get the sense that you took a look first before posting,

@rbertalotto What you are missing, and what’s going on here, has mostly to do with your ability to read. Best preamp on earth — Where’d you get that? - Hissing, noisy remote control — Where’d you get that? Doesn’t know how to use XLR connectors —...

Yes, I've found Mick can forget what's asked of him. He has a tech in the U.S., who I had a private exchange with which some months back but can't find now.

It might depend on which Isoacoustics you’re using, but I found something more, such as AV Roomservice EVP’s, does a better job of iso under my Chardonnay now Cab (MD for the main, HD for the ps). But then mine are stationed on the bottom shelf, w...

I’m not sure your presumption is correct. This subject came up because of SR’s Carbon Tuning Disks, which are meant to be placed on power cords and IC’s to deal with the external fields that the video discusses. Here are are a couple of links, but...

@richmon A bit off topic but I wonder if your foam tubes might not unintended effects on the sound. Off hand, two theoretical hypotheses come to mind (although I’m not an expert): 1) the foam acts as an additional insulator that counteracts the de...

The Cabernet manual states: "A gain adjustment knob is provided in case preamp is used with high gain power amps, if noise is an issue adjust gain until noise disappears." The same applies to the Chardonnay. Adjusting cables is a separate matter...

I turned off the high gain switch on my just-received Cabernet for the reasons you mention. Mick’s design does draw a fair amount of current in start up, although the manual says the noise is ok, i.e., won’t damage the speakers. I blew a pair of 3...
