    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?

    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.

    Hello Mr Mike.
    Sorry if I said something wrong ,since I'm new to this hobbies.

    Today I auditioned 30.2 with NAT SET monoblock. The voice was so full of body but I still miss some bass and I think it kinda rolled off in high. The equipment separation was good only some albums.

    Then I auditioned Diablo120 with their Mojos(different dealers). I'm amazed with the soundstage, image and how clean they produced them(is that mean they bright?), but instantly I miss the Midrange and full body voice feel of Harbeth and NAT.

    Will Diablo produce better midrange when pair with Harbeth??

    I still waiting to try Luxman next

    Thank You Sir.
