    No such issues with the Momentum HD - infact you realise what the bass is meant to sound like - much more controlled, which is what you would kind of expect from solid state compared to valve.

    My new ride !!

    The Ref40 is the anniversary preamp . It takes a lot to better that preamp, however the D'Agostino certainly does.

    My new ride !!

    So I spent considerable time doing the demo with the Momentum HD preamp. I always said I would never sell my Ref40 (I hear you laughing now, why would any audiophile say 'I would never buy another piece of equipment!), however it really is a massive step up in terms of performance. Infact mine...

    Amazing system. Out of interest are you contemplating changing the preamp to either the Momentum HD or the new Relentless matching one out shortly? I was using the Ref 40 with my M400's but am in the process of changing to the Momentum HD. Marc.

    So I would say a definite improvement and for the cost relative to the equipment were worth doing. Better black levels is probably the most obvious gain M.

    Hi, Has anyone experimented changing the synergistic research blue fuses to orange in a DCS Vivaldi full stack? I currently have the blue ones but thinking about changing the 4 out to orange. Thanks Marc.

    Synergistic Research ORANGE Quantum Fuses

    Lol, yes I am aware what you use in your system . I was wondering if anyone else had tried the new orange ones in the Vivaldi. I run US plugs so not fused at that end M.

    Anymore updates on the below. Do you know if it is part of the line or all of the line: dCS Vivaldi system was launched in 2012. After 8 years, dCS will launch a new flagship series very soon. Rumor is this year, but given the current pandemic, the launch will probably be delayed. Thanks Marc.

    Reality is Cruel : Cybershaft new Ultimate OCXO 10M Clocks Shootout OP20 vs OP17

    So I used to use StillPoints in my system however recently took them out since I have a new Artesania rack which made a massive difference. The clock is actually sitting on a VertexAQ platform on the rack since the new rack doesn't have shelves and the unit is too small to reach the carbon...

    Reality is Cruel : Cybershaft new Ultimate OCXO 10M Clocks Shootout OP20 vs OP17

    Hi, So I managed to demo a Ref-10 with my full Vivaldi stack, and as stated above, it is a no brainer. The difference with using the external clock was not subtle, a significant improvement. I decided to wait for the Ref-10 SE120 version which I received nearly 2 weeks ago now. I was told to...

    Reality is Cruel : Cybershaft new Ultimate OCXO 10M Clocks Shootout OP20 vs OP17

    Hi, I have posted in the Vivaldi post about adding an external clock to my Vivaldi system. Was wondering benefits and if worth doing. Also what best one is. May I ask where you purchased since also in the UK. Thanks Marc.

    Could you provide some specific details between the Mutec and Op21A. What is better?! Are there any others to consider too? @jfrech, have you never tried an external clock then? M

    DCS Vivaldi

    Am thinking about adding a Mutec Ref10 to my 4 box Vivaldi stack. Does any one have any feedback and is it worthwhile to do so. Are there any disadvantages? Also any other external clocks worth considering? Sorry for all the questions! Thanks Marc.
