    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...

    Re: VAC Signature iQ200

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

    In addition to your overall impression, I’d be grateful to hear what you think about the KT120’s in...

    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...

    I’m surprised my dealer hasn’t contacted me yet about the 452 amp—already been 4 days since the press release! I may have to contact him....

    Re: VAC Statement 452 MusicBloc iQ

    “...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...

  9. 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.

    From the SoundSmith website:

    I’m thinking about buying some. Peter Q has pretty good ears. If he thinks they’re good, they just might be!

    Did some more research. Apparently these tubes won’t be available from the usual tube sellers. Only thru Audio Note and their dealers.
