    Hi Bonzo,

    I heard the Nagra more than a year ago and liked it a lot, but STILL preferred the B7 with the DHTs. The electronics then was Absolare and the speakers were the half a million dollar Stenheim Ref Statement towers.

    Lampi is cheaper too.

    The Lampi HeadDac got great feedback in Warsaw 2015 show....corroborating what ALRainbow says.
    Lampi is more about sound and less about bling.

    So, in your opinion, you and the dealer prefer the Lampizator DAC to the Nagra HD DAC. Others may or may not agree.

    Ken
    Have "others" compared? The difference is too large on all fronts to be a preference. I can understand a preference between Ortofon Anna, a95, and Koetsu. In this case, the Lampi is leagues ahead on all fronts. Fine to disagree, but after you compare. Anyone visiting London is welcome to borrow my Lampi for the comparison.In this case, opinion is backed by experience

    http://zero-distortion.org/yg-hailey/ followed by the link I posted in the previous posts should summarize my experience with amps for YGs. I would strongly consider Vitus class A stereo though I have never heard it on the YGs.
