    Phono cable recommendations?

    I came really close to buying the Avondale too. The way it's constructed makes it really difficult to re-terminate too I guess?

    Phono cable recommendations?

    Thanks for the suggestion. But as you pointed out, I do need a little more space at the back, so a right angle plug is probably the best option. Anyway depending on how things go, I just might be changing my table and arm in the next 2 months, so will just enjoy the music for now! Thanks...

    JCAT Signature Gold LAN Cable

    I have had similar experiences with the JCat Signature Lan Gold. I have tried a whole variety of cables, including offerings from TotalDac, Viard, Wireworld and Vovox and Sablon. Generally, I would classify them as being on the more musical side of the spectrum. My current reference for Lan...

    Phono cable recommendations?

    Hi OP here! I am actually in the process of looking through some phono pres as well, and just might pull the trigger on one, but that's for another discussion. To be honest, there is a consideration of end-game itch. I have learnt the same through my digital set-up, and have kept the same...

    Phono cable recommendations?

    Dear Khun Tang Thank you for your kind advice. I have always enjoyed reading your posts, and that will be something I think about going forward. For now, I have tried the default cable once again, but there is an obvious and discernible difference. Perhaps going forward I will consider...

    Phono cable recommendations?

    Hi there I have some basic setup tools like protractors and scales, but whenever I mount a new cart, there's a guy in the local circle that does this for a living, just to be extra sure. With regards to the shrillness, it's uniform across all furutech cables that I have owned, so maybe...

    Phono cable recommendations?

    My thought process is that I want to buy one cable which will follow me through my upgrades. A better arm and a better cartridge will cost significantly more than what I intend to spend on the cable.

    Phono cable recommendations?

    Thanks for the reply so far guys! Just to be clear, I would need a right angle din to rca cable!

    Phono cable recommendations?

    Dear all, been a happy user of the forums. Gained a lot of interesting perspectives, and for now, it is a relatively friendly place. I have been discovering the joys of vinyl playback recently, and my setup currently consists of an Avid Volvere SP, with an SME IV tonearm and an Airtight PC3...

    NEW ZenWave PSR-14 UPOCC Silver Ribbon Power Cable

    I was the next person to demo the cable in Singapore I have been very lucky to try a variety of power cables from big names, and I have to say that at this price point (and beyond) , the zenwave psr 14 ranks among the best I have heard. In my system consisting of a Vitus pre and power amp to a...

    Roon coming to CH C1

    Hi Ralph, once again thanks for your great advice on my ch precision journey so far. My current setup does not have roon involved as it goes from lan point to melco to ch precision c1 connected via ethernet cables. Would I still benefit from the ethernet_hd card? Thanks!

    YG Acoustics

    Yep using a ch precision c1! Sounds like a plan! In the midst of reorganising some stuff, but should be ready to host soon.

    YG Acoustics

    Yep from Singapore as well! Using my old sl102 connected to a ss103! You are welcome to come give a listen, although my speakers are quite different from yours haha.

    YG Acoustics

    Similar to what asiufy mentioned, I haven’t heard a dartzeel that I would classify as analytical. Warm, almost tube like midrange. Your Carmels will go nicely with it, although they really would like a amp that can really grip the drivers. I’m a happy vitus pre power user, and I heard great...

    CH Precision C1 DAC Power Cord/Upgrade recommendations?

    Hi CKKeung, Thank you for all your advice so far. I am interested in finding out more about the Taiko Audio, but was wondering for a first purchase, should I go for a D2 or D3 first? I have read your review, and am quite interested to know how they performed with the C1. Cheers

    Amp Stand for Vitus SS103

    That might be something for me to consider. Unfortunately I'm based in Singapore where there is currently no dealer of your fine product so would have to depend on reviews for now.

    Amp Stand for Vitus SS103

    Dear friends, as you all can guess from my thread title, I have finally decided to continue sticking to Vitus for my amp! In order to accommodate it though, I would need to move it out from my rack, and onto the floor. Obviously that's not ideal so I have been asking around for some opinions...

    Tchernov Cables

    Just came across this thread, and wanted to add in something I wrote a couple of months back in my local forums. Through the kindness of William at Audiosound, I was given the opportunity to try out Tchernov Cables. I first heard it at a demo session with his Ground Zero speakers and a pair of...

    Amp suggestions for Marten Coltrane Tenor

    Wow! That setup looks amazing! I think those are Analog Domain Amps, and I was also considering an attractive offer for their integrated, but the same issues I have above applies...

    Amp suggestions for Marten Coltrane Tenor

    Hi Bodhi! Your posts have been very informative to me since I was based in Australia and a frequent visitor of SNA. In fact, I got my original SIA 025 to pair with my marten miles 5 partly due to reading some of your posts. I did think about the Vitus SIA030, but another thing I am concerned...

    Amp suggestions for Marten Coltrane Tenor

    Hi all, currently a happy user of Marten Coltrane Tenors (mk1) speakers and Vitus SL-102 and SM 010 amps. DAC is CH Precision C1 and Ayon CDT 2 as a transport. Recently the SM 010 developed buzzing on one of the amps, and the local dealer has given me a great deal for the SS 103. However...

    Echole AC/IC cables - initial findings

    Since this is where I first heard of Echole cables, I felt it was only fair to give a mini-review in the same forum. I was looking for suggestions for a power cord for my CH Precision DAC, when someone suggested that I take a look at Echole. In all honesty, I did not know much about Echole...

    CH Precision C1 DAC Power Cord/Upgrade recommendations?

    Ralph, I have to say thank you once more for the reminder to change to the HD board. It's 2.30 am where I am, and I just installed the board. The improvement in dynamic range is amazing! I might not have to get that power cord upgrade after all. Thank you once again sir.

    CH Precision C1 DAC Power Cord/Upgrade recommendations?

    Dear Ralph, Thank you very much for your insight. I did not realise the HD input was important even for users like me who do not use a D1/C1 combination. I was under the wrong impression that only the hd-link was affected by the HD upgrade. Think I will go for that first then. It has been a...

    CH Precision C1 DAC Power Cord/Upgrade recommendations?

    Hi all. I am a recent owner of the CH Precison C1 DAC, and added in the network card recently which made me a very happy man. However, I am still looking for a good power cord to pair with it. I have been very lucky to try Goebel, Siltech Double Crown, Ruby Mountain, Crystal Cable Dreamline...
