    My TT with new cart, at the dealer

    My dealer has my new cart installed. But sadly out holidays didn't match. I got back from a long weekend in Belgium and he just left. Luckily he send me a picture. Now I need some more patients....
  2. Re: A Good Audio System Is the Best Stress Relief Money Can Buy

    Why? I found the title "the best money can buy" a bit haughty. Since it's very much a individual choice. There is no such thing as "the best stress relief money can buy" everyone makes their own...
  3. Re: A Good Audio System Is the Best Stress Relief Money Can Buy

    It's all personal. For some people it is a music and a high end audio system. For others is coke and prostitutes. It's all the same.

    Do what you need to relax. Just don't hurt others.

    Re: Solid State Amp Heaven

    Zanden 9600mkII
    Octave Jubiliee Mono SE

    Not sure if they would be better than any of these SS amps. I love both SS and tube amps.

    Re: Amplification for YG Acoustics Carmel 2

    I tend to agree with Mike.

    But my personal recommendation would be EMM labs. My dealer has a pair of YG Carmel with EMM labs mono block amps and full EMM labs source. It sounded great. IMHO better...

    Re: Ikeda 9TT or?

    The distributor of VdH and Octave told me that the VdH Crimson is not a good match with the RCA MC transformer input module of my Octave pre amp. He told me the Ikeda might be nice for me.

    My current cart the Dynavector Te Kaitora Rua is slowly dying. It has been patched up but it won't last. The dampening rubber has seen better days. Replacing the dampening rubber is not really an...

    These are Acustica Applicata Volcano. They are some kind of bass trap.

    Tnx, but the Thunderbird Zero costs more then what I paid for my amps and almost more then what I paid for my speakers.
  11. Re: The good news is.....and the bad news is.....

    I currently use Rocket 88 speaker cables. If I were to upgrade these to the next level what would you recommend? The William Tell Zero? My other option would be the Ansuz P2.

    I need about 3 to 4...

    Re: Emm da2 dac

    Last weekend I listened to a EMM labs reference system. It is one of the best I've ever heard.
    Those amps have a iron grip on these speakers without losing the musicality.

    Last weekend I spent some time listening to this system. It was one of the best I've ever heard.

    Re: Munich High End 2019: Loudspeakers

    I really like Blumenhofer speakers. I tried two models at my home. Maybe I should have tried some more but I couldn't get them to sound good. It had to do with my amp at the time and the room...

    Re: Why do you go to audio shows?

    We have been together since November 2001. So I doubt that we'll be taking the vows anytime soon. We do have a cohabitation contract.

    Re: Why do you go to audio shows?

    I only visit shows if they are within max 2 hours driving. I'd like to go to Munchen and Krefeld but visiting a show that far away costs a lot, hotel room getting there and back etc.

    Don't think...

    Re: Octave HP 700 -the new tube pre-amp benchmark?

    Shouldn't pre amp tubes last a lot long than that? I'd expect power amp tubes to last for at least 2 or 3 years. Pre amp tubes should last almost indefinitely.

  25. Re: Put together a dream $12,000 system for me...

    If you use a laptop or other digital source already maybe the Kii speakers would be an option. They are about $11k. Connect your laptop and stream Qobus.

    Not really sure if this works.
