  1. I have a pair of these and waited several years to find them and they are worth the wait. GLWTS
  2. Had the 250 and now run the 400s and these Gato amplifiers are superb. GLWTS
  3. I have one and it is superb and at a great price. GLWTS
  4. If you are doing a bake off I would be interested in hearing my Formula against the others (Mola Mola etc). Best
  5. It would be great to compare Formula v Mola Mola v Holo Audio May v Lapi GG…..I can supply the Formula….
  6. I have just upgraded from the La Scala to the Formula and it is a very worthy upgrade, superb resolution and soundstage. In actual fact the integrated DAC in the Vinnie Rossi I would put ahead of the La Scala Optologic. Initially, I was sceptical on the difference a DAC can make and now I am convinced, whether the price upgrade is worth the greater resolution and soundstage is down to personal circumstances. I just know the Formula HD with the Analog Domain and Verity AE Parsifal works incredibly well for me and you are welcome to come and listen whenever in SW6. Good luck James
  7. Have a bump on me, great amplifier at a great price and I had one then moved to the 400s. GLWTS
  8. Thanks for the message and in actual fact I put the Vinnie Rossi up against the Analog Domain Isis 2 and within a short space of time I immediately put the Analog Domain into the main system. I have the Vinnie Rossi in my second system, because it is a fantastic amplifier and the DAC held its own (I have since upgraded to the Aqua Formula, which has far greater resolution and staging). With the Vinnie Rossi I agree the preamplifier is wonderful and the DAC is excellent and I did not try tube rolling. In my second system it is on for several hours and the tubes can do their magic. Whenever you are down this way you are welcome to listen to both amplifiers to see the difference.

    Is anyone listening to DSD and where do you find it? I have Tidal and have just watched the PSaudio lecture on DSD, which is interesting. Thanks for any insight

  11. Hell, I was looking for one of these with the DAC, but just bought the Analog Domain Isis 2 and would love to hear these two in comparison. Good luck with the sale.
  12.
