Atma-Sphere Class D… Amazing
@srama   yes, I did. I got the ultimate upgrade. fed from a wavedream net and dac stack. hooked up to the Atma-Sphere monos using TWL Spirit ii xlr. I really like this combination. I'm using it with headphones though (abyss TC Phi). the overall ... 
How to use headphones with separates
if you wanna use your existing gear with headphones, get a Zynsonix speaker tap adaptor box. depending on your headphones, you can configure the box with a bypass switch i.e. having 0dB (bypass) or whatever level of attenuation you need (if using ... 
Atma-Sphere Class D… Amazing
@clio09 thanks for that info! i left the shorting plugs in the box and stored it away, as i dont use RCA often. looks like i'll have to get them out and keep them in the drawer just in case. @veerossi dude, to say that rack is amazing would be an... 
Atma-Sphere Class D… Amazing
@dseltz thanks man sent u a message!   
Atma-Sphere Class D… Amazing
I just got my atma-sphere monoblocks yesterday. took a few weeks upon ordering. they're bigger than I expected; can't fit them side by side on my rack. guess I will have to place them on the floor. No instruction manual but I guess probably not n... 
Preamp to Pair with NAD M23
I'm using a cary audio slp-05 into the Nad m23 and am enjoying it a lot. the cary looks great, sounds amazing and is also dead quiet. wasn't a big fan of the stock tubes, so plugged in a set of NOS sylvania 6sn7 tubes and they're much better indee... 
Bricasti Model 1 Series II DAC
@joc3021 @audphile1 ​​​​​​ many thanks for the replies! really appreciate the comments/comparisons. had not considered ayre before but will look into it. I like Benchmark as a company but somehow just could not enjoy my dac3b, hpa4 and ahb2.. end... 
Bricasti Model 1 Series II DAC
@sksos many thanks for the offer. I would have loved to take u up on it but I'm halfway around the world in Singapore. I used to have the Benchmark Dac3b; is Bricasti somewhat similar to that?   
Bricasti Model 1 Series II DAC
@sksos ​​​​​​ ​​​​​​Thanks for that info! admittedly, I have not had the chance to try any of the Bricasti offerings. there is a dealer local to me, but they only have the M3 in store, and they do not allow for home demos. they did invite me down... 
Bricasti Model 1 Series II DAC
am quite interested in the M1 SE2 dac. thinking of selling one of my dacs to fund it. currently using Rockna Wavedream Signature XLR, Meitner MA3, and Rockna Wavelight. have any of u with the Bricasti tried the dacs I have, and have any opinion as... 
Puritan PSM156
anyone gone from psm156 to niagara 3000/5000? I've read differing opinions; some prefer the Puritan whereas others say the Puritan makes music sound thin/bright and prefer the niagara 5000. I'm currently using Lab12 Gordian and Niagara 1200, both ... 
Atma-Sphere MP3 or something else?
@decooney am slightly hesitant to try the Atma-Sphere Gan monos as they too have rather high gain (well, in comparison to the apollon and nad amps). between the Nad and the Apollon, it's pretty close; Apollon is slightly smoother up top but the Na... 
Atma-Sphere MP3 or something else?
@decooney yep am using it in front of the Nad m23. I still have the Sierra 2ex but those speakers are used with an Audiolab integrated; I only tested it with the mp3 to see if the whine/hum was still present with speakers. otherwise, the slp-05 an... 
Atma-Sphere MP3 or something else?
just to close the loop..  ended up ordering the slp-05. such a beautiful component indeed! it is dead silent with my gear (which was a massive relief). swapped out the stock tubes for a NOS Mullard GZ34 and a set of sylvania 6sn7 black plates and... 
Primaluna Preamp Users' Experiences Driving Solid State Amplifiers
I used an Evo 400 preamp into Nad M23/Apollon Purifi. No issues with either power amp. i let the Evo preamp do its usual routine on startup and only turn on the power amp when the preamp is ready for use.
