Shiny brand new second hand things in my system today


#6060

Just a brief session using same cables and amp seems to show more weight to sound and clarity and realism with the modded one


#6061

Also got a teac ud ho1 today to use and see if any improvement on just using my CD or Sonos into the pre amp. Not sure it will but at 130 quid for this very reasonable dac it’s worth a go


#6062

Just about sorted now :slight_smile:


#6063

VTA looks high on that one :slight_smile:


#6064

Nice, when you have more cash, a top arm would set it off nice.


#6065

Prolly just the shit arm.

Need to spend a fair bit to better it and don’t have it right now.


#6066

Are you using the Pm4?


#6067

I am


#6068

I still have a pretty decent TVC pre and Class A Power amps but the PM-4 just does everything right; to these ears anyway :slight_smile: so I don’t feel the need to swap it out.


#6069

Quad 405-2 up and running


#6070

Long time coming, and at one point I thought it was a gonner, but thanks to the skill and perseverance of our very own @Valvebloke , the Graaf has finally returned to life :slightly_smiling_face::heart_eyes:


#6071

He’s a bit good at sorting poorly Graaf stuff is Graeme. Even without a circuit diagram


#6072

Hiya Rick.

Is there another Exodus from the other place ?


#6073

No idea Mike. Hardly use anywhere lately. Except when I’m on the hunt :wink:


#6074

Ah, that’ll be it then.

Have fun !


#6075

Remembered your login then mate :grinning: ?


#6076

#6077

Very true! Still got your Graaf phono stage Rick?


#6078

I have mate yes. Still not heard anything to replace it.


#6079

just as an update the little teac ud ho1 did nothing at all with the sacd player as a transport . no difference at all in sound . however running the sonos into the dac lifted the performance of the sonos substantially . well worth the modest outlay
