  1. As an alternative you might consider something like a Volvere from Avid.
  2. Oops I forgot my EgglestonWorks Rosa speakers, as mentioned by Jack. Give them a bit of power and they really come alive.
  3. Sorry for the late acknowledgement, Non Smoking Man but I have only just seen your posting regarding your visit. I cannot recall whether it was an Avid Volvere or my Sequel but the arm was an SME iv and cartridge a Shelter 5000. The power amp was indeed an Ayon Audio Triton PA hailing from Austria.
  4. I have two American units in my audio setup. The first an Ayre P5xe phono stage. I have had this unit for a number of years and it’s performance has been impeccable. It is quiet and affords music with a decent level of scale with good frequency extension. When I purchased it I auditioned it against two other units, one from Clearaudio, which was superior but nearly twice the cost and later a Plinius Kuro which, to my ears sounded mechanical. The P5xe is a fully balanced dual-mono phono stage With XLR inputs and outputs. This has proved useful as it mates very well with my other unit from across the pound, an Audio Research Ref 5se preamp. This recently replaced my Ref 3. I’ve read Audio Research products tend to work best when connected in balance mode. Over the years I had heard Audio Research amps and was not particularly moved by them until a chance encounter at a Linn meeting (of all places) placed me next to someone with an all valve system at home. I spent quite a few evenings listening to his Oracle Delphi, Ref 3, Ref 210 monos, CD 7(?) and Maggies. I could not get the overall tone projected by his system out of my head. I knew I was doomed to getting on to the valve/tube band waggon. The Audio Research Ref 5se preamp probably represents the most obvious sonic improvement to my system. It’s sound is big and bold with tangible imaging. It is fast and “transparent” and I am very happy with it.

  6. I have revised this listing as these units do actually carry the heavyweight spings: 4 units = 12 kg - 24kg
  7. Hi Joolz 3 units = 3-9 kg 4 units = 4-12 kg Hope this helps.
