    After all these years, shouldn't be surprised any longer but Ghent cable made a very very nice improvement. Sound is more organic, less dry ... Great ROI!!!

  13. Re: Constellation Inspiration 1.0 amp and preamp review

    Feedback is adjustable on CH. Is it possible feedback was too high so sound is sterile and dry?

    I agree on Spectral. Sounds like my childhood family Pioneer receiver to MY ear.

    A friend had a pair of MBL 101e MK2 and found Bryston 28B SST2 best match comparing to many amps including MBL. Mike, have you tried Bryston 28B SST3 with your 101e?
