    Stunning visually and a perfect match for the D1.1's, D2.1's and XT1's. Great separation. Balanced top to bottom (no lumps or bumps in the sound presentation), clean but NOT clinical sounding. The most un-class D class-D amp I have heard. Love the phonostage and DAC! Aavik is a perfect match for Raidho.

    Be interested to hear how you think Aavik compares to Vitus Signature range.

    Mike you should try the DTC and Mainz on Soulution - Vitus etc and with other speakers too. Same hold true for the Aavik. Post your impressions.

    Raidho, Aavik, Ansuz

    Without getting into too many specifics, I think Ansuz DTC with Raidho is a must. And as for Aavik, I feel the same way. But the Ansuz DTC....what kind of magic is in those boxes? Bass bump gone. I sure hope LeRoy chimes in. He put some in his system this week and we spoke today for the first time since and - same thing for him. Bump gone. I thought I was losing my mind when I put the Ansuz DTC in the Raidho/Aavik system. Thankfully I had a client with me who said "hey, that bass bump just went away when you put the Ansuz DTC in." There's magic in those boxes.

    Funny I asked Mike B at Le Roys how they got rid of all the AC noise which lowers the noise floor. He told me the Tesla coils just reshape the noise.

    Me too. He said it puts them above the audible range (100khz or something). But damn. Those boxes!

    Interesting and encouraging. From my observation these cables displace the noise so it cannot be heard - manifests in blacker blacks and better dynamics. More finesse. Less certain about their ability to address bass issues but I'll take your word. Though even prior to receiving the DTC shipment you shared you had not experienced any bass bump with the .1's whatsoever so I'm not sure what you are referencing here. Still keeping on topic there is no doubt Raidho, Ansuz and Aavik play well together - they're designed to - and synergy prevails... enjoy!

    I don't believe you are correct. I mentioned "no bumps, no lumps in the soundstage" AFTER connecting the Ansuz cables and Aavik integrated.
