HI Don,No i have not tried the Weiss OP-AMPS. Colin said they are good but expensive, they cost more money than the Sonic Imagery. He also has Purifi module but states the NC1200 Signature is superior, that is Colin’s opinion not mine i have not h...

HI Don nice post, do the  Purifi amps have OP-AMPS ? I use the Nord NC1200 Sig with Sonic Imagery OP-AMPS and i am very happy, but i like the idea of OP-AMP rolling to suite ones system or musical tastes.

Acrolink Cables, anyone heard them?
I had an Acrolink 7N-PC4030 Anniversary power cord on my Esoteric K-01 until i tried the Nanotec 308 which was cheaper and to my ears much better than the Acrolink. More fuller and body to the images, bigger sound stage, more open just better in a...
