    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...

    Re: New Borresen Line Of Speakers

    The drive units remind me of a Scansonic.

    I thought following the Raidho departure the focus was on the Aavik amplifier range.

    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 ‘heard’ it. Naturally sourced so I think it will be very similar to wood with its presentation.
  9. Re: Lumin D1 with Music First Audio Baby Reference V2 - Too much bass

    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....

    Re: Sia-030?

    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.

    Re: Harbeth 40.2 anni. or the Verity Otello

    Harbeth had three engineering students working for two years to produce their Radial cone material. Now in Radial 2 version...

    Re: Vitus SS-103 or SM-011?

    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...

    As an end user I moved on from Raidho also. Cabinets imported from China and the paint job on my LS50s was better. So you are paying a lot for the driver technology and in house manufacture. The end...

    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.
