Shiny brand new second hand things in my system today


#4214

Not new but combo of Perreaux and AGs in lounge.


#4215

Nice. Mine had Blue Horns. :grin:


#4216

VTA looks a bit low.


#4217

Weight


#4218

home made or bought in?


#4219

Michell


#4220

One horn either side of the bay - now where have I seen that before? :grinning:


#4221

Snap


#4222

Isn’t that DD15?


#4223

It is. Been looking for a DD15 or DD18 for quite some time, this one was the right pricing and condition. Collect it Wednesday. Realistically the DD18 is too big and heavy :scream::scream::scream::scream:

I was tempted by the 1812 as well.

Not looking forward to setting it up, as I hate those EQ things.


#4224

The auto setup is painless, it does need connecting to a screen though, then adjust volume to suit .
At some point I’ll plug it between pre/power and see how it works cutting the main speakers bass, see if it integrates any better?


#4225

New speakers - Proac Tablette Anniversary.

Tiny compared to the Heco’s but a very similar sound, just a teeny bit more precise and snappy. I need to turn my amp up a fair bit more with the Proacs. Very nice indeed.:+1:

The refinement of box swapping is one of natures greatest wonders. The more you swap the smaller the kit gets as you subliminally realize lumping big stuff is not fun. Endgame = walkman

Replaced one of these:

With one of these:

Will use the MM side with the ANS3 SUT for a few days and then try the MC circuits. Quite pleased on first impressions.


#4230

From Italy…
Finally got one (with a Mogami cable)…


#4231

The schiit saga in valve buffer mode is most certainly a hit , seems to really gel with firebottle monos and the separation of instruments is really good , listening to some tracks has that realism that sometimes scares you . most definately an amazing combo with the horns


#4232

Passive preamp with 0.5dB steps arrived today. I’ve been using attenuators with my new Valvet monoblocks and preamp, but this arrangement will hopefully give more flexibility. Or I’m fussy about certain things. :slightly_smiling_face:

Getting the volume level to just right for hours of listening is probably more difficult in a smaller room.
