  1. Funnily enough, I believe that this was the very DAC previously favoured by the reviewer in the article @George 47 posted earlier in the thread - he wrote a very enthusiastic review for HFW, and bought one himself if memory serves - ironic indeed
  2. And the 'C' stands for..... answers on a postcard please
  3. I used to live down the road from Proac, and I dropped my 1SCs in to be measured to make sure that they were fully within spec (they were) - they didn't charge me anything - very nice friendly outfit
  4. It's very thoughtful of you to help us differentiate between the different Andrews by putting a 'C' after your name
  5. Strangely, I find myself unable to hear something by looking at a test on some random forum, but to each their own.
  6. The best MM I ever had was the AT150mlx - I think it's been discontinued - not sure whether the replacement model would be in budget? The original was head and shoulders above the 1042 & Reson Reca I had previously - not made a comparison with the Ortofon range, though - MH
  7. Actually, Atomic Rooster 'Death Walks Behind You" would be in my list - Vince Crane's Hammond playing is awesome - don't think anyone mentioned it so far
  8. Like Tales from Topographic Oceans you mean....
  9. Damian Jurado - Brothers and Sisters of the Eternal Son to be followed by - Visions of Us on the Land
  10. I'm not sure what the collective noun is for Andrews, but I definitely prefer the other one - perhaps an Andrew limit could be introduced
  11. I've sent you a PM - I've got some surplus - MH
  12. I failed to edit my post in time... Thanks for your response - a model of clarity - I shall experiment and may report back
  13. What's your thinking here? I'm pretty sure that I can upsample on my Aries, and my DAC (which I believe is NOS R2R) can certainly handle high res files - tbh, this is something I've not experimented with - MH Edit: having thought about this for a few minutes, it seems pretty obvious what your thinking is - as you were....
  14. On principle, I agree with all negative assessments of equipment that I can't afford
  15. I would put the Claymore way ahead of the Cyrus One - a Cyrus Two with PSX would be closer - I've never seen or heard the Oberon, but it is also a CW design, and I believe more powerful, I think it would be unlikely to disappoint....
  16. If you're looking for a spot of period synergy, the Incatech Claymore is an excellent match - I used to have this combination many years ago - sounded excellent - MH
  17. Soften them up with a few Melt Banana albums at high volume, and they'll weep with gratitude when you play 'On the Corner'.... (my fave Miles Davis album btw)
  18. This is an excellent suggestion
  19. Just reading up on these - look like very nice kit - GLWS etc - MH https://www.hifi-advice.com/blog/jeff-rowland-integrated-amplifiers/jrdg-company-special-concentra-1/
