Thanks GHD. I will take a look at that piece. I appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts.
|I am Looking for That Elusive 3 Dimensional Room Filling Soundstage|
As long as you keep the Rogue in the system, Ref 3a DeCapo should get you there. I have not tried this in a small space however. With patience, a good used pair should be had for $1500.
|R.I.P: Rest In Peace Roy Johnson, Green Mountain Audio's Genius|
Very sad indeed. I always made sure I was sitting down when I called him as he was a world-class conversationalist- incredibly generous with his time. I felt his Europa Max was exceptionally coherent - quite special to be sure. Like others have sa...
|Can a power cord increase the resolution of an Class D (SMPS) amp by more than 5% ?|
I became a power cord believer about 15 years ago- Synergistic Research Master Couplers impacted everything I put them on from amp, DAC, pre, even the darn digital reclocker unit. I have had fun "rolling" pc cables since (I could argue they may ma...
|Giles, Giles, & Fripp|
Cheerful Insanity is both a well recorded album, and a great album. A classic.
|Best Preamp = No Preamp?|
An old thread, but I wanted to "testify" as I have recently been enjoying my old Monarchy 18B DAC direct to a PSE Studio IV amp with wonderful results. Coming off of "old iron" tube integrated too, which surprised me- huge soundstage, great height...
|Power Strips - Wiremold vs.Hammond vs BPT PPC|
I am only posting here because of the surprising improvement inserting a classic Wiremold L10320 between my SS amp and the wall outlet. I have a few of these units around the house that I no longer use in my audio system, and I read about Naim ess...
|Vintage Bogen Mono Blocks D070's-|
I have to agree with Frankt88. I've had CJ gear, Rogue, Bruce Moore, McIntosh, Etc. and I am currently listening to a Bogen DB230 integrated and I would have to be honest and say that for the money, it's one hell of a sonic competitor. I think the...
|Does power conditioning really matter?|
I have to join as someone soundly converted. I have never in 20 some years of dabbling in this hobby/obsession addressed power conditioning in my system- I of course experimented with every other element in the chain, from tube rolling, cable swap...
|Rewire to triode instructions for CJ CAV50?|
Sure, just did it,instructions direct from CJ,just call and give your e-mail on their VM and you're set. Changing the "straps" was straight forward, desoldering the Caps was confusing- the top of the board is nigh impossible to get at, thus you ha...
|CJ CAV50 - triode vs ultralinear|
I finally got around to converting my Cav-50 to Triode..have always been a Triode preferer, this seems to make sense, and with my newly dialed in Altec Valencias this is a good combo...I would have to guess efficient spkrs a must...as for the soun...
|need help on transparent sounding 12au7 tubes|
The cleartops are exceptional- something else needs to change in your system.
|Has anyone ever cried listening to your system|
Strauss; Ein Heldenleben...3/4 through the piece is the moment of euphoria...one can revel in one's system AND in the wonder of music both at the same time...well worth a good cry!
|Anyone heard Amber 70 amps as Mono pairs?|
OK, it took me awhile to get to this point, but I have arrived.I am currently listening to two Amber Stereo 70 amps in mono "mode" and they are stunning. I think I know why there is little to no info on this config. because those that have tried i...
|Kimber from Monster First sound thin Now awesome|
I just swapped Canare and Zu for PBJ and I'm speechless...who knew IC's could resubstantiate your whole system....well, I guess most of you did, but I didn't!
