Very nice system EiL! We share the same Pre and Power components. I did upgrade the Momentum to HD earlier this year. If your haven’t done so, I highly recommend it.

Thank you very much MBJ :)
Can you tell what you experience with the sound when upgrading to HD :)

February 2020 edition of Stereophile has a glowing review of the Momentum HD Pre.
Yes, glowing is the exact word, as the Momentum HD also sounds glowing - the performers shine illuminated a soft warm light, with none of the typical artifacts of many SS preamplifiers. Listening to some old opera CDs (not in my system) going through it I found that CD voices can sound as fleshed and liquid as the best LPs of the 60's through tubes. It was a real surprise.

Although some people will consider that the Momentum HD was just a small incremental evolution over the old model, IMHO subjectively it was a gargantuan jump. I found curious that Jason Serinus also highlighted these aspects I had reported in WBF a few months ago.
