    Re: New Momentum HD Preamp

    I had a nice conversation with Dan last evening at a Paragon Event. We talked for some time about the modifications he has made to create the new HD pre-amp I was probably a bit ambivalent even though I have placed my deposit but now I am fired up to get it into my system. One point he clarified is that those who have their units updated will also have RF remote capabilities. So remember to package your remote with the unit when it is time for the update.

    He indicated that the update requires new boards(s) which will be different from those going into newly manufactured units. A delay in ordering those boards has created the delay we are experiencing. It is not like I am suffering without the update.

    Jim,

    Thanks for the update as I didn't know the reason for the delay. Even since we talked with Dan last year about this update we were stoked given what he was telling us. Indeed, we also can't wait to get this done and in our system.

    Thanks gain for the data as to why there is a delay.

    Does that mean an upgraded Dan pre to HD will sound different to a new Dan HD? better or worse in sound?

    As far as I could tell from the discussion there should no difference between a updated unit and a entirely new unit save for the slight change in exterior cosmetics. The internal changes are not just a one for one swap outs of parts. My guess is the FET's replacing some op amps along with all of the other modifications make a new board mandatory. I considered trading in my unit towards a brand new one but more for the cosmetic changes than any possible SQ variations.

    Just a side note. Dan looks great. He has lost 65 pounds and looks healthier than ever. I should have grabbed a photo.

    Re: New Momentum HD Preamp

    Well, I received a call yesterday from our local dealer and they are coming today to pick up our Momentum Pre-amp to ship back to D'Agostino for the upgrade.

    So, the upgrade queue must be moving. Good news: Upgrade is finally here. Bad news: No Dan Pre-amp in the interim.
