Re: Tony Tune-age System

I prefer clip 2 over clip 3 (or 1 depending on how you want to look at it). No idea what you are comparing but the music comes through better in the second clip.

Re: Culprit - The phono stage?

Guys, I mounted my adikt cart on my Rega tt. Nothing, the same old sound as with Carbon cart. Now, my ears are broken or my amplifier is not able to produce a different sound? I will try to borrow an amplifier and see what will happen. Or option 3, you have a defective Adikt. I have mounted a numbe...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

T vs H, better or worse?

Re: Culprit - The phono stage?

I have mounted a number of Adikts on Regas and there is a quite big improvement over a Carbon. I have had differences of opinion among Rega owners as to whether the Adikt or the Exakt was preferable. Hi ThomasOK, What is your personal feeling (can you live with) ... about Rega & Adikt combination. ...

Re: Tune Dem of Headphones

That is likely because Grado have just replaced the entire e series with a new x series. The x series are claimed to have improved drivers, a better cable that is now fabric wrapped and a more comfortable padded headband. The prices of all models except the 325 have gone up a bit, from $150 for the ...

Fredrik, so IIUC even a different protocol could be implemented via a new firmware release? Yes! I would say this makes Källa future-proof even when the giant in Cupertino changes some protocols. Matt That seems quite likely. However it also seems unlikely that the 800lb Gorilla would make some big...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

I find them relatively close but I prefer clip 1. Clip 2 is energetic but I'm not sure it is in a good way. Clip 1 just sounds more natural to me and I find myself drawn into the voice more.

Re: Random thoughts on hifi

This discussion is going around in circles. There are certainly pieces of music that have taken me several listenings to understand, King Crimson's Lizard album being a prime example in my life, as I didn't like it at all until I had listened to it about five times. However, I also think it is hard ...

Sounding good, beck! Music is communication. Once the level of perfromance of the gear allows it to communicate at a high enough level whole vistas of musical genres you didn't understand open up. Isn't it lovely?

Re: Hermanns System

It's alright beck, you're not the only one late to the party. But clip 1 is definitely the more musical, making me listen to the whole clip. Clip 2 just seemed flat in comparison, uninvolving.
