    What was your first high-end component ever?

    Used? IMF speakers
    New? Perraux amp and preamp

    But truthfully, it was the 1970ís and everything is now a blur!

    Esoteric XD Series

    This will sound like a PC answer, but truly in between. If pressed, I would say closer to the K1X. In years past, the K-03 versions were quite close to the K-01 versions. With XD, thatís not the...

    Re: How much quality is on a master tape?

    Yup, two different approaches for recording. A820 is the real deal for recording which tape machines were designed for back then. Today, the focus is more playback for most.

    Re: How much quality is on a master tape?

    If youíre into audio by the pound, yes that would matter. The weight of the A820 comes from itís stand, sheer size and other structures internally as you have mentioned. The A810 was designed...

    How much quality is on a master tape?

    Mike, youíre off. The 810 and 820 have the exact same playback mechanism. Itís all in the recording side the differences.

    How much quality is on a master tape?

    George, the hiss of tape is there with digital (from tapes) as well, but excessive hiss on R2R playback can come from many sources: bad caps, caps going bad, dirty tape heads, bad tape heads, etc.

    Re: How much quality is on a master tape?

    The A820 Vs A810 is almost identical, the only difference being in the recording side. If itís playback only, itís identical. Most 810ís can be had for $10-15k fully refurbished, wired with...

    Re: Meitner MA-3 DAC

    It all depends on whether you want Roon or not. The LinQ doesnít do Roon, only HQ Player.

    I frankly think the Aqua La Scala v2 is incredibly engaging and musical. The MA3 sounds smooth and...

    Re: How much quality is on a master tape?

    Itís highly unlikely anyone has a dynamic recording they listen to which wouldnít work with tape. Also, itís unlikely someone can hear 20khz, so who cares if you can record above that.
