Shiny brand new second hand things in my system today


#4014

Yep - seems the 30 is more highly thought of than the 40 by some. Came across a 40 first so that’s what it got. It seems very quiet in the groove so not sure what all the comments about the 40 being noisier are.


#4015

I have a MC200 Concorde and I like it very much, but it’s stupid low output.


#4016

Anyone got experience with chord preamps?
Considering a swap for a Chord Prima, with my ProJect RS pre and power supply sold on…

To get one box and a device that has different gain settings per input and that remembers the one you use when turned on!

Welcome to the Techy Massive, innit :grin::ok_hand::+1:


#4018

Picked up a second SP10 as a bit of a too good to pass on. Needs the switch sorting and one of mine will then go up for sale.
Both are in good nick and happy with them…

:face_vomiting:

Chord are fine if you can’t hear anything above 10 Khz but they sound dry and screechy to me.


#4021

Had a Prima - very pretty but sounded bang average and the remote was crap.


#4022

Guess I’ll stick with the project then!
Sounds lovely but I’m lazy and selecting the fourth input every time I turn it on gets annoying :man_shrugging:t2:


#4023

If it’s convenient it’s not hifi :+1:


#4024

Move the cables to the first input or is that too difficult?


#4025

Is that a ‘domestic’ sample with 1 psu box?


#4026

Chord, meh, £1k for a midi killing device, leave well alone.


#4027

The fourth input is balanced and designed for low gain devices like phono stages.

My system has received a large injection of Class A oomph courtesy of this not-so-new Plinius SA-50 Mark 3. The amplifier is in lovely condition and gives that little bit more bottom end than the Rank Concept monos I was using. Also, I quite like the Darth Vader vibe it provides.

I’m also experimenting with a HiFiBerry Raspberry Pi setup that means I have moved to Roon, so a new DAC beckons after the next set of toys arrives.


#4029

Do the street lights dim when you turn it up?

Me like :+1:


#4030

Re-wire the inputs?


#4031

looks a bit hurty. Is it possible to mover without lacerations?


#4032

Foo amp stand as well.


#4033

Well, if anyone’s gonna know …
