    Re: small scratch on my magico s3mk2

    In the United Kingdom we have a polishing compound called Farcela G3 permanent scratch remover. It’s a thick white consistency. I would try a small area to see if it has any effect.

    Re: Do you prefer SS or tube? Why?

    Vitus brought me back to SS.

    Was as fed up with the heat, tube quality, bias adjustments and reliability issues.

    Just switch on now and an hour later everything is ready every time.

    Re: Harbeth P3 Anniversary (my review)

    These are similar findings to mine. I was first introduced to this speaker at a local HiFi show a year ago. I could hear straight away there was something special going on. The sound is so BIG...

    Harbeth P3 Anniversary (my review)

    I first heard about Harbeth from the November 2007 edition of Hi Fi News. They ran a feature on the history of Harbeth. The article covered the company’s history including the loudspeaker cone...

    Re: Atacama or Quadraspire bamboo racks?

    Bamboo is very strong. I have never Ďheardí it. Naturally sourced so I think it will be very similar to wood with its presentation.

    All that silver internal wire will need to burn in. I would do the serious listening one week before the trial ends.

    Re: Atacama or Quadraspire bamboo racks?

    You will be getting ringing from the metal and the glass shelves will add their own sonic signature by pushing the treble forward.

    Wood is best. Torlyte is a honeycomb design and performs well....

    I can assist here. To surpass the sia-025 has been more of a challenge than was anticipated. Designer has said they are nearly there now.

    The magic with Vitus is class A mode. A total of 25 watts with the SIA-025 or much more with Ri100, more watts but no class A mode. My Harbeths are only 83.5db efficiency and the SIA-025 has no...

    Re: Vitus SIA-025 dream gear

    I think this may have been the update that increased the class A/B output from 100 to 150 watts per channel. Please note that class A is where the magic is though.
