Hi,
Transparent PLUG-IN NETWORK PROTECTOR works only at 110 volts or it has universal voltage ( I am in Italy). Thank You
Hi, you better ask Transparent this. Their website says 120v....

Is there anybody using stillpoints feets under their Rossini or vivaldi ?
I haven't tried still points, but I have tried other feet and ultimately preferred a good audio rack. You'll hear the feet, hard to say whether everything is better or not, I'd say this is very system and listener dependent. I don't think there is a definite answer to your question....

I really like the stock ones, they're super high quality for being the "free ones"...

Hi Parsons and all in this thread. I will be receiving my Rossini Next week. Has anyone listened to the Rossini with and without the Clock? I can afford the clock, but the dealer said the difference wasn't huge. I'm interested in peoples listening experience. Also are there any clocks that work better with the Rossini than the matching DCS unit?

Given your system, you'll hear the benefits of a dCS clock. I'd stick with dCS. I suspect if you're streaming or your digital sources can't be clocked (like your i7/SSD) this could be why your dealer is saying what he's saying. I haven't heard your combo, but in my Vivaldi stack it was amazing how much better a Vivaldi Clock sounded that a Scarlatti Clock on all sources. Clocking in important. Better focus, un-ravels the notes better, resolution. Again all easily heard with your Nagra/Wilson combo.

In the past I had a Puccini with a U Clock, tha I moved to scarlatti clock, important improvement. Than I changed to Rossini, whaouw, it was listening music into another world. Sincèrement 4days I moved to the vivaldi clock, and it sounds far better than my previous combo Scarlatti +10 MHz cybershaft op21.
so you can see, improvement of the clock is very important. Today I will couple the vivaldi clock and thé cybershaft, and .... for sure it wil bring me in Heaven..
