    Borresen 03 Loudspeakers

    I think Borresen speakers would be a great match with Aries Cerat pre-power. If i go to Munich i will check them out.

    Gryphon Mephisto Stereo

    That shoot-out would be interesting;)

    Gryphon Mephisto Stereo

    Vienna do you think the Pandora is still the best preamp for the Mephisto stereo or would CH Precision L1 be even better ? Cheers.

    Endgame pre-power or Int recommendations

    You should get the Aelius 2 if you already have the the PST 100 mk2, great combo that i had on demo at home. Regarding my search, favorite tube pre-power is Aries Cerat and for SS CH Precision. Favorite DAC Totaldac top of the line.

    Audience AU24 SE-SX line of cables

    I'd like to have feedbacks from users of Audience top of the line cables, interconnects, speaker cables and power chords. They seem to have some of the best performance/price ratio on the market. Please share your experience compared to other cable manufacturers.

    A new SOTA integrated tube amp

    For a budget of 150K most if not all will prefer separates.

    Visit to the Cessaro Zeta System of Audioquattr

    What are the prices of the Alieno amp and preamp ? There is only one dealer in Italy and they don't mention price.

    Visit to Bending Wave USA--Gobel and CH Precision---state of the art

    I also wanted to know why you diden't purchase M1 monos and chose to have L1 monos and C1.1 monos instead ? Is it that you don't need the power of M1 monos for your Göbel speakers ? Also how big of a difference is there between L1+X1 vs L1 monos ? Thanks.:)

    CH Precision house sound

    Elliot i have a question about CH upgrade path. As you are aware most of us might not have de funds to purchase a maxed out CH system like the one you showed at RMAF. But since you can start small a grow little by little let's say you can start by purchasing L1+X1+M1.1stereo the first year. What...

    Kaiser Kawero Classic

    Yes you are right Kawero would be better with CH and TAD with Gryphon Mephisto or Aries Cerat Ianus.

    Kaiser Kawero Classic

    Tbzc thanks very much, very informative:) Yes i do think Kawero would be magical paired with Aries Cerat pre+monoblocks. Regarding the TAD Ref One i would like to hear them with CH Precision pre-power.

    Kaiser Kawero Classic

    TAD Ref One can be found for 30K used from time to time, that could be a good option. I have to find a way to audition the Kawero one day because i'm not yet familiar with them. I know a dealer that had them on loan for a year but he doesn't have them anymore:(

    Tad reference 1

    Thanks for your input. It's a shame because Aries Cerat with it's full body and organic sound would have been nice with the transparency of the Ref one.

    Tad reference 1

    Would it be possible to drive TAD Ref 1 to full potential with Aries Cerat Concero 65 Sig monoblocks ? or am i not reasonable to think that ?

    Kaiser Kawero Classic

    Kaiser Kawero or TAD Ref One ? Which one is an overall better performer ?

    New Playback Designs Dream Series DAC and Digital Transport

    Any more listening experiences of the MPT-8 + MPD-8 DAC combo ? Is it in the same league as Totaldac d1-Twelve mk2 + d1-server ?

    Gryphon Colosseum Stereo v Antileon Evo Stereo

    What do you guys think about pairing CH Precision L1+X1 with Mephisto stereo ? I'm thinking about this just because IMO CH L1+X1 is better than Pandora.

    Gryphon Mephisto Stereo

    Can some of you give me a good description of the Mephisto sound, is it still up there compared to some more recent SS SOTA amps ? What is the power consumption and how does the amp age within a decade or more, any issues to be aware of about this amp ? I have only heard the Antileon Evo and...

    Totaldac Reference D1

    Hello Vincent, i don't see any reason of using a d1-driver with an active preamp such as CH L1, Gryphon Pandora or even an integrated.

    Totaldac Reference D1

    d1-driver not d1-direct sorry.
  23. Thieliste

    Totaldac Reference D1

    I have a question regarding d1-driver, is there an audible difference in using let's say a Twelve mk2 with d1-driver and going direct to CH M1.1 stereo amp as opposed to using CH L1+X1 in the chain instead of the d1-driver ? Other example d1-direct driving Gryphon Mephisto stereo instead of the...

    Totaldac Reference D1

    Like you said we only have one life that's why i will also purchase the Twelve mk2:p

    Room size

    I would still think it would be cheaper to construct a dedicated room in an existing basement compared to expending the house with the construction of a new room. One other solution would be to use an existing garage next to the house to build the listening room. I have been visiting houses with...

    Room size

    tmallin thanks for your input. I have visited a house that has 2 basements and one of them is 90 m2 and 12 foot ceiling. If i recall it would be possible to have 15 feet wide even though there are some vertical pillars. The bigger basement was used to store 2 trucks that's why there is 12 foot...

    Room size

    Since i will be constructing i will do 15 x 22.5 x 9 I think it's just about right for a medium size room. I'm looking at houses with a very large basement where i could build my dedicated room.
