    Yep. Now everything is OK, but ... is there any chance for native desktop Lumin app for Win10 or even better - multi platform via web browser?

    I will, and thank you Jack. Much appreciated. Just received an AT 700 series cartridge to mount up on the Technics as an alternative. Always loved Signet/AT cartridges. The Rega is the main but the new Technics is fun and what a motor. Just...

    That's great. A couple of weeks ago I picked up a six weeks old sample of Don Sachs' latest version of his Model 2 preamp that uses the same 64 step Khozma attenuator as your Hattor. Didn't need it but the price was right and I wanted to compare it...

    Ahhh... I feel like such a tube noob... But it is fun. The active stage is really nice. So much air and sound stage. Dynamics are far better. I hooked up the vintage McIntosh the other day and I swear I could see the old girl smiling :D.

    It will work, but you may run into a too much gain problem with this amp. You'll probably need to use the RCA output, and further decrease the D2 volume to compensate for the amp.

    What are you talking about Dev. A switch can't replace a router. A switch does not assign IP addresses. But a audiophile switch will add a layer of isolation and reclock the signal. A Gigafoil will isolate the ground planes where a lot of noise...

    If the Sugden has an XLR input it will work fine and yes the D2 has a Wolfson DAC chip inside so nothing additional needed.
