    Thanks Edward's great help and setup XDMS in my extreme on Sunday, it's such a jaw dropping improvement in my system, the stage became holographic and everything are 3 dimensional and coherent, especially the details in mid low frequency, the bass drum and snapping became so clear and easy to...

    What ethernet cables are members using?

    Yes and it’s very musical but not as balanced as the FTA which I got it today, Pink Faun add some favor in mid and low frequency which sounds very engaging, i will give 2 weeks for the FTA to run in first and then compare them again, but what I heard so far they are fall into different side of...

    What ethernet cables are members using?

    I got a Pink Faun and also ordered both FTA metis and crystal connect Monet, let you know the comparison once i can test them, Pink Faun is a very good one which fall into the analog side and doesn't sound too analytical, i sold my Dalby meda and keep the pink Faun, acoustic revive quadrant and...

    Lampizator Valve / Tube Rolling Review Thread

    Hi Jbs The TNT 300BF sounds really good and much bettet than the Acme 300b which i sold, they sounds so smooth with lots of details as well, especially the bass which is much better than other 300b ihave tried, i would like to say 242 sound on the modern and analytical side and 300BF sounds on...

    Lampizator Valve / Tube Rolling Review Thread

    I purchased locally in Hong kong and the model is their latest verison 300BF, running with their 274b for 20 hours already and it sounds awesome, not a typical 300b and much more balanced and got a much better bass presentation and sound stage, i heard from the dealer it need more than 200 hours...

    Lampizator Valve / Tube Rolling Review Thread

    Yeah Bonzo and I understand 242 sounds fantastic and work in my system, i just want to experiment the tubes on the 'mellow' side like 300b and give me another taste, i think this is one of the key features which Lampi offers for us to play like different systems :) im not looking for a 'better'...

    Lampizator Valve / Tube Rolling Review Thread

    Hi Gents Finally i got the time to play my system and roll a few rectifiers, it's the first time i roll and compare them after i upgarded to Pacific from GG2, i sticked with RK242 + GZ480 which was the best combo in GG2 and give me a very dynamic, airy and coherent sound. I didnt fancy for...

    Introducing Center Stage 2M

    Got it Joe, does it means that every single change we make in future take times to re-settle again? Such as tube, fuse or cables? Does it take another few weeks to find the equilibrium Or just a few days? I have a big question mark now and it’s quite challenging to loop this cycle again and...

    Thanks Joe and I will play a bit louder than usual and hope this can help to speed up the settle in process

    Introducing Center Stage 2M

    The sound is so bright and difficult to listen, i remember Steve was also changed to his backup tubes to run in to save the tube life, even on Day 2, I have changed the rectifier tube from GZ480 to 274b and RK 5u4g and both of them I can heard that immersed effect, I can easily do the benchmark...

    Introducing Center Stage 2M

    Hi Joe, Today my system suddenly sounds so bright which similar as what you mentioned already , i need to change the GZ480 to SuperTNT 274b to trim down the brightness, hopefully this is the last mile and that immersed magic happen soon, Cheers Joe

    Preamp choice for GoldeGate2 and ATC SCM50 (~20-25k)

    Thx Bonzo75, maybe I’m abnormal but based on my testing with both models I think 50 is the most balanced and close to the “monitor sound” which I prefer, I think 100 is better to play for classical music or sth you need a deep bass to provide that atmosphere, but for those hardcore stuffs I...

    Preamp choice for GoldeGate2 and ATC SCM50 (~20-25k)

    Half of the living room I can use for the stereo system (left hand size) which is around 20sqm, I don’t need to use any bass trap and I can turn the volume up and squeeze the potential from my 50 in a quite loud volume :)

    Preamp choice for GoldeGate2 and ATC SCM50 (~20-25k)

    Hi Davenrk, i tried them both but honestly i dont like 150 which the bass is too 'slow' to me, especially i listen lots of metal and hardcore stuffs which prefer a 'faster sound' Pros and cons for both 100 and 50, 100 get a bigger picture and bass response but i need to put some effort to deal...

    Introducing Center Stage 2M

    Yeah PeterA and i tried, the improvement is not significant with cs2 now and i got another footers which sounds better, however, nothing can compare what i heard on day 2 with the cs2 which sounds like a magic, unfortunately it only happened on day2 and the next 3 weeks were so boring, Steve...

    Introducing Center Stage 2M

    Understand it is better to set the baseline but i got another set of footers which sounds better than the cs2 now with the same equipment, however it's far behind what i heard on day 2 with the GG2 which i assume thats the immersed effect every one talked about, the dac is the only variable, for...

    Introducing Center Stage 2M

    I have experienced once that “immersed effect” on day 2 under the GG2, everything sound so coherent and real and thats what I expected the footers can do, but after that the sounds became so dull and boring under the extreme and GG2 for ~3 weeks before I change to Pacific, and that immersed...

    Introducing Center Stage 2M

    I got these new footers few weeks ago and put them under extreme and Lampi GG2, last week I replaced the GG2 with pacific and assume it need time to settle again since the weight is different from GG2, for those under extreme, I didn’t touch them for 2 weeks

    Introducing Center Stage 2M

    Got it Scot but based on your experience is it normal that the sounds constantly change (up and down) since day 1? My question is it didn’t change at all for more than a week, I have no idea about it has been settled down (even without the positive effect) or it need more time to settle, but...
