help me choose a pre amp

Recommended Posts

If I was gonna buy the Emporium one I'd check exactly what's inside it. If close to the 'standard' 1 I'd certainly negotiate a more appropriate price. .... Probably nearer £1K

I once heard the Aspara speakers at Walrus when they were still in trade. To this day I cannot get them out of my head - 3D soundstage like you cannot believe! One of the few horn designs that did it for me. I hope you enjoy them.

PS. Unfortunately I have to side with Steve on the Land Rover as I am more of a Toyota man myself.. ;-)

I think the new amps will take your system to a whole new level. Enjoy!

As the aussies say ...to get anywhere in the remote parts of the world you need a Land Rover....but if you want to return aswell you need a land cruiser.

Having said that isn't it somewhat like 60% of all series 1-3 plus defender models ever made are still running

Poor life choices :D

Mind you, once you have the SJS and single-ended amp in situ, you might change your priorities.

Stage 1 of my amplifier upgrade path SJS arcadia pre. 

Stage 2 tomorrow hopefully 2a3 SET monos. 

Brand new valves and not played for some time. Connected to my 2a3 integrated. 

BLOODY HELL!! the tone, timbre and presence is just amazing. 

Can't wait for tomorrow 😳

Keep us posted. I’m very excited by your system on your behalf. Remember to post pics, also of the speakers!

Stage 2 complete and playing beautifully. Going to really enjoy the bedding in of this. 

Chuffed to bits, thanks to @mr.me for the transformation.

Going to try out the vintage 45, s after this settles down.

WOW, a Dream system - I bet it sounds wonderful! Never heard one of Simon’s amp and I’d very much like to.
