    Outstanding VAC customer service

    A big shout out to Kevin Hayes for his recent assistance. I noticed one day that the right channel was much louder than the left. I suspected a tube was probably going bad, so I reached out to VAC....

    Re: roon core options

    My experience is somewhat similar to yours. I definitely share the frustration part!

    In my system, the iPhone app always works (although it took me 9 months to figure that out) and the iPad app...

    Re: VAC Signature iQ200

    Interesting. That was my experience, too. Immediately audible, not the kind of situation where you’re wondering if maybe it’s a little better. More solid foundation. More body. A lot better. ...

    Re: MSB Discrete Ordered...Now What?

    I feel your pain, my brother! I can definitely sympathize since I’ve been trying to figure all that out too. I’ll take a stab at it, but will probably not get everything right. I’m sure others...
  7. Re: Tube Choices For Signature and Master Preamps

    IMO, it depends upon what kind of sound you’re looking for and where the rest of your system currently is. In my system and for my tastes Mullards were too warm, Telefunkens just a little too...

  9. Re: 2 great valve monos - OR 1 great 300b (Which is better)

    Nice speakers! I think you’re probably right about a 300B SET being enough for those speakers, unless the room is HUGE or you want to shake the walls and windows!

    Your post prompted me to get my...
  10. Re: 2 great valve monos - OR 1 great 300b (Which is better)

    The other thing to think about besides mono or stereo, is which tube in which amp sounds best to your ears. I’m perhaps unusual, but I have a hard time “falling in love” with most 300B amps. I can...

    Re: Magico M3 vs Focal....

    I like a solid foundation to my music and a warm, rich sound. Gryphon Antileon Evo + Magico M3’s will give you that, and still have articulate bass.

    The M3’s, as much as any dynamic speaker I...

    Re: VAC Signature iQ200

    Unfortunately no. I did own the non-SE Signature IIa which was replaced by the Master.

    You’ve assembled an outstanding system that obviously brings you a lot of joy. That’s awesome! Continue to...

    Re: VAC Signature iQ200

    Glad to hear you like them! Your description of the sound matches my perception, too. I keep thinking I should try KT120’s or 150’s, but then I turn on the system to listen to some music, and it...

    Re: What cartridges are you using?

    I just mounted a vdH Crimson Stradivarius yesterday! The body shape and easy-to-see cantilever help to make it easy to set up. Right out of the box it sounded totally enjoyable. Really looking...

    I listen to plenty of rock on mine too. In fact, Neil Young is “Down by the river” right now 🤗

    Re: Phono stage- VAC Sig Mk IIa

    I think this description is spot-on. The Lundahl SUTs in my VAC Master are not my cup of tea. I much preferred using a Bob’s Cinemag SUT into the MM input instead of the MC input. Dynamics with...

    “...allows the amplifier to be switched between 450 watt single-channel mono operation and 225 watt/channel dual mono amplifier”

    So is this a dual mono stereo amplifier that can be run as a...

  21. Re: How much power (wpc) is more than enough for most speakers and systems?

    Agree with what was said above. In addition, the size of the room matters. Bigger rooms need more power.

    Re: AMG v12 TURNTABLES

    I’ve been thinking seriously about a different tonearm too for my Viella/12J2. Not even sure how easy it might be to get armbases from AMG. Would also like to hear about other’s experiences.
