  1. Any further findings on extended usage will be very helpful
  2. Looks lovely Iam going to wet myself with all that chrome
  3. From the description of your system, it would work a charm if your amp had a direct preamp input to bypass its inbuilt preamp section and act as power amp. In which case the antimode could be used as a preamp, with volume control via its remote. And also as a dac cum preamp being fed by the inmous. However, if the integrated amp doesn't have a preamp bypass input, then you can still feed the line level signal from your phone stage into the single RCA inputs, and then feed the output from the antimode to the line level inputs of the integrated amp. But you will have to keep the inbuilt volume control of the antimode in bypass mode, so that it's preamp section is bypassed. The above is from my memory as I haven't been home in 10 months. So my grey matter is a little vague at the moment But Iam 80% sure Iam right But please still read the online reviews on Google, where it's abilities are described in more detail. In my use case scenario, I use tubes to drive my mid range and above. And I use the 2nd preamp outputs of my preamp, to feed the antimode for bass correction. This corrected signal is fed to the high power SS power amps to drive just the bass drivers. With the bass corrected this way below 250hz. The improvement in over All clarity is stunning to my ears, as I have a small untreated room. And the previous bass boom that I had due to several peaks is completely gone. Fondly hope this helps, as I've been screaming about the merits of the antimode from the tree tops for some time now
  4. Trust me The improvements that the antimode brings by it's bass correction to the overall clarity of the sound, far outweigh any gains that can be had, by a dac with a higher sampling rate. I've been there and done that, and at 650 pounds too
  5. I have a esoteric K-01 sacd player which I bought second hand blind. I find it brutally honest, exceptionally detailed and in your face. Absolutely no warmth to speak off. Probably bang opposite of the marantz sound. Probably belongs in a recording studio than a hifi system in my opinion . If my first foray into TT works, i will sell the esoteric first of all my other gear to recuperate some funds
  6. Hi sir ...just had a small query. Are you using the inbuilt volume control of the Monacor, or is it via a pre amp feeding the Monacor. Thanks
  7. Really glad to hear this sir And thanks a ton for sharing your findings. Iam not sure if I could find a Monacor in India...but I plan on trying their 4 channel version. Will definitely revert back with my findings once Iam back home.
  8. I've never heard any of the contenders.. but there was a recent audition between luxman vs accuphase vs gryphon .It was close to a bake off actually. Everyone there felt that luxman and accuphase were holding some thing back. And not really letting loose...whatever that means, you can only find out in a audition sir
  9. Thanks all...got a tuner to my liking. Thread closed please
  10. Thanks sir Please dont mind, I think I will let all the offers come in and then start responding. Otherwise I will be wasting a lot of forum members time, all for nothing. Since I need only one tuner. Thanks for your kind understanding in this regard.
  11. Thanks a ton sir But will they accept PayPal payments by any chance please.
  12. Hi all After having missed out on the musical fidelity A5 tuner posted here, due to the uncertainty around my next UK trip, which has just got finalised. Got the courage to finally post a wanted thread Since iam a sailor, my purchase process can come across as weird. But I've bought tons of stuff from here, and will never break my promise once I confirm a purchase. So please make an offer with confidence And please note that my wierd buying process is as below : 1. Since I don't have a PayPal account, and sometimes broken net connectivity being at sea, my friends in the US west coast will make a PayPal transfer for the cost of purchase + shipping on my behalf. For reliable members, I have always done PayPal friends and family transfer to avoid deductions at their end. 2. Due to time difference between my present location (GMT+8), UK, and the US west coast ( GMT-07), please allow 72 hrs for the PayPal transfer, once I've confirmed my intention to purchase. 3. My good agents are based out of Felixstowe- postal code - IP 11 3QU. And items need to be shipped to them, and I collect them once I berth there. Iam looking for a FM tuner only in silver ( to match my all silver stack ). Preferably with remote and auto tune and frequency preset functions. If remote is not available, then definitely one of the nostalgic ones with VU meters or back-lit tuning meters please My budget is flexible, and will entirely depend on the condition ( both physical and working), and the quality of gear on offer. Thanks for reading my long post Thanks and best regards Y.Manohar
  13. Yes sir...from the blurb I've read, the minidsp SHD I have sitting at home, loaded with the latest version of dirac live, is still not inclusive of dirac bass management. And it is apparently as separately bought add on , to be bought and downloaded. So people are still using minidsp' s peq features to tame the bass, and then running dirac on top for the final impulse and FIR correction that dirac is famous for. Atleaat that is what I read on the net, as I still haven't run the system yet
  14. +1 Wether they work or not will largely depend on the quality of the mains power supply as is it is I have the first gen PS P1200 power regenrator running my whole chain. As I live in a huge apartment complex with nasty power gremlins. Never tried any of my boxes without it, so don't know if it makes a difference to be honest. But I just keep it for peace of mind
  15. Will be fondly waiting for your feedback sir
