    Re: Why no turntable?

    True. My analog system is sounding decent. But still a loooong way of from what's possible. If you have less then 10k to spend on analogue. Just don't.

    Re: Why no turntable?

    I sometimes regret going into analogue. I love my turntable, but the costs are just too much. Carts, tonearm, TT, cables etc etc.

    Re: My TT with new cart, at the dealer

    It sounds great out of the box. Maybe a little less warmer compared to my Dynevector, but also a bit more alive and dynamic. But it's really difficult to say anything meaningful. I have a suspicion...

    I just got an app that he came back from holiday. Will pickup my TT coming Saturday. I hope the new cart sounds good.
  10. Re: Computer Audio is Dead and Streaming has killed it

    I have never bought anything using Amazon. There is Amazon UK and Amazon Germany, but no Dutch Amazon.

  11. Re: Computer Audio is Dead and Streaming has killed it

    I only have Qobuz, no Tidal.

    My local shop still sells a lot of CDs. The shop is about 50/50 CD/LP. I do buy download. Mostly from bandcamp. My main source is my turntable. But I do also like to...

  13. Re: Computer Audio is Dead and Streaming has killed it

    The problem is that many albums or artists are not available on streaming services. So I still buy CDs and especially LPs.

    I love Tidal but it's a mess sometimes. Tidal goes sour when you have...

  15. 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...
  16. 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...

    Tnx, but the Thunderbird Zero costs more then what I paid for my amps and almost more then what I paid for my speakers.
  24. 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.
