  1. Re: First Tube Preamp - TAD CR-1 & Hypex NC1200 Monos

    That has not been my experience with ARC. However, they are not warm and syrupy, in part due to the 6H30 tube. I love the LS28 and almost bought one, wish I had. I found it very tube like, more...

    ARC all the way. I haven't heard the other brands. But I think that ARC will give you the sound that you are looking for.

    Tony, the Schiit web site says you can use it as a preamp/DAC for active monitor speakers.

    Re: KEF Q150 - thoughts? Amp/AV choice?

    I would also look at the B&W 606 and 607's, Elac B6.2's (don't let the price fool you, they sound great with good electronics, way above their price point, bought a pair for my daughter), Wharfedale...

    Re: DAC help.....

    You may want to consider this Bel Canto Streamer. It does MQA and is Roon Ready. I got to hear one last week at a friends house. It sounds great and is at a reasonable price.

    The AQ Cobalt will be the weak link in your system. I would rather have DAC that does not do MQA and is of much higher quality and price than the AQ. The improvement in sound with a much higher end...

    Re: DAC help.....

    With those speakers and Magtech gear I would spend $1500 to 4K on a DAC depending upon how comfortable you are with spending that much. DAC's do sound much better as you climb the money ladder.

    Re: solid-state class-A integrated amplifiers

    Why not go with separates, a SS amp and tube preamp? I use a BAT tube pre with my Pass amp. I preferred the tube pre to the Pass preamp I had.

    I use to use my Magnepans in a 3.1 system for HT and 2.1 for music. I gave up my HT and just run separate speakers and receiver for TV. My music system is totally separate.

    Re: What happened to tone controls?

    Well, all I can say is that in a secondary system I use a 1970's Technics Integrated amp with tone controls and turning down the treble makes bright recordings listenable for the most part.

    Re: Why no turntable?

    Yes, but the upgrade is more than just the silver wire.

    Glad to hear that the 2M Blue sounds better. Give it 25-30 hours and it will sound better.

    Enjoy!
