thanks, slamitie.  i've heard that the pass preamps are not nearly as nice as their amps.  no first-hand knowledge...doug s.

slamitie, what preamp(s) has this one replaced?my prior preamp, (which i am still hoping to get back with its gremlins taken care of), is a much modded melos ma333r.doug s.

rlovendale - i'm w/you on this one. u-tube is anything but hi-fi.i've been a died in the wool tube guy, especially considering preamps, for ~20 years.  fate has conspired, tho, to have me awaiting delivery of a latest-edition-spec coda 07x.  a p... 
Has anyone seen this? A really beautiful turntable
the mag-lev looks cool.  but, so what?  just get a vintage empire turntable, it will smoke this thing  (and any other new $3k table, imo.)  if you want a floating platter turntable, spend big money and get a verdier platine.  no, you won't see air...

hi terry,i *did* converse w/doug d., and mentioned you.  ;~)  something might be brewing.  tho my bias (no pun intended!) still makes me find it hard to believe a solid state pre could provide more air and better staging than a tubed pre.  we'll s...

terry, here's a question for you - i've seen expired ads for used 07x's dating back to december of 2015 - has this model been out that long?  kindest regards,doug s.

lrm1jaf - you queried terry about how the coda compares to the microzotl preamplifier.  earlier he stated:"...The longer I have the 07X , in-house for a professional review in the near future, it is becoming apparent to my ears that this Coda prea...

Tekton Impact Monitors
hi ky1mag,in the overwhelming majority of cases, having no sidewalls is a major advantage, not a disadvantage.  looking at your room dimensions, tho, in your case, you have only 13' to squeeze you and the speakers between the front and back wall. ... 
Tekton Impact Monitors
hi  ky1mag (and everyone else),this post is mostly directed to ky1mag, based on your comments regarding your returning the speakers.  (but i suspect it could be useful for other, since i have a suggestion that's not typically tried by most folks....

Lightspeed Attenuator - Best Preamp Ever?
for the same price, or less, (~$395 shipped), i would strongly recommend the diyparadise eva-2 ldr attenuator - this sucker actually improved my sound, (i use an active preamp), by enabling me to run the (already wery transparent) melos tube poten...
