  1. Hi Ken,
    I red your comments in the Vitus power amps. May I ask whether you were able to have an audition? I would be very interested in your opinion comparing them with your Pass amps. I own since almost 10 years a pair of XA60.5's driving together with an Ypsilon Audio PST 100 mkii Tidal Contriva G2 speakers. I love the system but I know the speakers would benefit from more power. And one brand which intrigues me is Vitus. Therefore, your experience would be highly welcome!
    All the best from Luebeck Germany (no mountains here, but I originate from Bavaria

    Ken, have you started to notice any detractors from the Gigafoil yet. Black is not always good. I have heard this from switch makers

    The filters we know are making in first impression kind of dead black background, calm sound picture. But if you listen further, you experience that this is at a cost.
    The price is loss of finest micro dynamics, less atmosphere - all these very tiny signals which bring the magic and touch.

    If you still think its the bomb I may want to try one. I was already looking to get a linear PS for my router. I will get one with a 19v and 12v rail.

    Do you get it from Mike or direct. What about PS. Where are you getting them and at what cost.

    Thanks Rex.
