  2. Re: Rowland 625 S2 vs Luxman M900u? Whatís better?

    Congrats on your newly ordered Magnepans! The true ribbon tweeter of the 3.7i and 20.7i is vastly superior to the quasi-ribbon used in the 1.7i, they exhibit an effortless and airy high frequency...

    Re: Do you use an integrated in your main system?

    While there are no details yet about the upcoming NAD Masters M33 on their US site, I just found the full product data sheet in English from a German site. :D

    Re: Favorite affordable phono stage

    Randy's requirement for a higher gain phono stage is likely due to his Hattor linestage, with its minimal available gain of 3/6/9dB. Not an issue with digital sources but with analog the available...

    I heard an in store demo of the Lumin amp and it's very impressive with an extremely refined presentation. Like others have said it's going to take some time for Lumin to gain exposure in the...

    Re: Lumin U1MINI

    As Peter stated phase inversion is not supported for digital outputs, so it would only be applicable for analog outputs (which are not on the U1 or U1 Mini transport models.)

    Re: U1 mini or U1

    The U1 Mini was released as a lower cost alternative to the U1, but of course there are compromises made like the internal SMPS in order to reach its price point. The U1 is still current in the Lumin...

    Re: X1 Power Supply Upgrade

    Just curious... do you have the U1 or did you add the Sbooster to a 'U1 Mini'? I've more commonly heard of the Sbooster used as an upgrade to the U1 Mini, replacing its internal SMPS.

    Re: B 1000f or 2X M-900u

    I own the Luxman M-900u, but notice that when run in mono mode it's only rated down to 2 ohms. Since the B-1000f is designed as a mono amp and rated down to 1 ohm, I suspect it might be better suited...
