    Recent Pass Labs and Wilson Sophia 3

    I’m using Esoteric K-03X, ARC Ref 6, Pass Labs X350.8 and Wilson Audio Sophia 3. I’m only interested in Jazz music, especially contemporary or modern Jazz. I like the sound very much. Your combination is very nice. I think if your listening area is not big, Pass Labs X250.8 is good enough...

    Have you change the tubes for your Ref 6? I was very lucky to get a NOS Tung Sol 6550 black plate tubes and 7 Russian 6H30DR tubes for my Ref 6. The sound quality is better than the stock tubes.

    Audience aR6-TSS vs aR6T-SSOX

    I’m using Audience aR6-TSS power conditioner a few years, I’m very happy with the performance this power conditioner. Now I can upgrade this gear to get a brand new aR6-TSSOX by paying about US$1920. However, I’ve compared it side by side at the same time, it seem like the sound quality is not...

    Grilles-on please

    I’ve done some experiment, for me it depends on how close I’m sitting with the speaker. If I sit more far away, take out the grilles has better sound for me. But if I sit more near to the speaker, I prefer to put the grilles on, it sounds more natural, not too bright and aggressive. So my...
