    Me too on Rex’s gesture!

    Yes, I agree on good things come to good people.

    I am not all that familiar with side firing woofers but get the concept.

    Best!

    Hi Ed, thank you for the kind comments.

    The tubed power supply is really the icing on the cake for the turntable. As I was told, the impact is even greater on the direct drive record players. There’s a Taurus review in German Stereo magazine 02/20 where the reviewer gets almost more excited about the effects of the power supply, than about the table itself. They usually do an English translation a couple months later, then it should be available in English as well. In effect, Brinkmann use tubes to clean the power for the turntable. A similar approach is applied in the Nyquist.

    The side-firing woofers work extremely well in my setup. The are other quite impressive speakers where the concept is applied similarly, like Vivid Giyas, some Estelons, Rockports and Martin Logans.

    Yes, it was a hard decision between the Kuzma and Brinkmann, I’d love to have both!

    I’m a big fan of the Vivid style but yet to hear them what they really can do. Every audio show I have been to there was not a trace of their capability in performance and I know they do much better

    I think Mike is also a Vivid dealer, maybe a visit to Sarasota would help.

    Oh boy, that is a dangerous temptation. But I understand, totally makes sense to show some restraint here.

    When you’re going to Sarasota...?

    I gotta get past this mess and then the skies are wide open - Boulder in my future, maybe, but honestly in a simple integrated fashion.

    I tested a Boulder integrated one, and it had a big ballsy sound. Very nice indeed.

    Top-end could have been a tad more open, but that was an older model, and just bottom of the range. I guess the top-range Class A amps sound crisper and are more open in the top register.

    Depends of course on your system synergy, and what you like.
