    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Going through one of the Telegartner M12 reviews, something I made a note of is that you are limited to music from within your network and won't have access to streams like Tidal and Qobuz. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    I'm not sure this is accurate regarding the Lampi Pacific. Firstly, it uses a variety of tubes besides the 300B. Secondly, at least with my Golden Gate, 300B tubes can be used to voice the DAC to render it very quiet and revealing with the utmost resolution. All reports suggest that the Pacific...

    Doctor's Orders-Part Two-The New Listening Room Of Steve Williams

    Before becoming a Lampi owner, I used to wonder why a Lampi thread always seemed to be at the top of the list of threads after doing a refresh of New posts. Needless to say, now I know. Welcome, Steve, to Lampiland. Welcome to Lukasz as well. All the best for 2020.

    The Uptone Audio EtherRegen audiophile switch

    I haven't read the comments section on YouTube but I'm sure it'll involve a lot of angst spilling, temple vein popping, and vitriolic bile.

    Millennials, Please Check In!

    I was born in 1981. I guess that makes me a Gen Xer. However, these classifications don't translate across socio-economic strata, so I never felt they applied to me. I feel that I identify more with the silent generation. I was born in Ghana, a third world country, during a prolonged drought...

    Running Springs Audio fans?

    After 6 years, the question still remains - what have owners of Running Springs Audio Power products moved on to, if at all. I have a Haley and am running out of outlets for my growing system; what with three new Linear Power Supplies in the last month. I'm interested in newer acquired...

    Anyone connecting Lampizator PACIFIC Dac using RCA connections

    Glad you will be getting this sorted out sharpish. It's painful to have a device simply not be what you want it to be. Hopefully it turns out to be an environmental issue and doesn't require a trip to Lukasz.

    Lampizator Valve / Tube Rolling Review Thread

    I am standing by for this corroboration. @Golum and @User211 Kindly provide info on the gain characteristics of the AD1s. Are they similar to that of the 300B or do they lean towards the PX25/KR242?

    Sablon USB cable - 2020 model

    I have compared my Elite to the Curious evolved in the past. A friend brought it over for an afternoon, so I can fully disclose that I didn't have it over a period of time and optimize my system completely for it. However, I did do some tube rolling to cater to its nuances. I felt the Sablon was...

    Psvane Acme Series (new flagship series)

    I now have an Acme 300B in my Line Magnetic 805ia, in preference over the Elrog 300B. There seems to be synergy between it and the Acme 805s just as with the Acme 300B and the Acme 274B in the Lampi DAC.

    Sablon USB cable - 2020 model

    I've learned not to be skeptical about Mark's stated development goals...my system is completely Sabloned out, and I still try to bring in other comers to confirm I am not a fan boy. In this case, the newcomer was Mark's own 2020 USB cable (Mark, are we working on a better name? ;-). @Blue58...

    Lampizator Valve / Tube Rolling Review Thread

    I just find the Psvane Acme 300Bs more to my taste than the PX25s - they also match my system better from a gain perspective. Otherwise, they are exceptional tubes.

    Thanks for the advice. Mark of Sablon Audio had recommended the AN Tants also, but I decided to only do mods as a last resort.
