“Against all logistic predictions, this morning a package from Mundorf was delivered at my home. That completed the shipments. Assembly was a walk in the park. I’ll let you know how things progress the coming weeks…”
Five Days After:
Here’s an intermediate reaction from your probably lowest living customer in Europe (4m below msl at my place).
As expected, during the first days sound changed from hour to hour, or even faster. These changes are now gradually slowing down after 5 consecutive days of playing. At the moment I like what I hear, soundscape is opening up in three directions, and the spectrum gets more and more balanced. Refinement of the high tones develops bit by bit, which is good.
Attached is a picture of the set-up in my living room. Initially I had some doubts on damping the room since it’s rather hard sounding and a bit reverberating, but that appears not to be an issue, at least not now.
As you can see on the picture, I own a VdVeen EL34 based pp amp, presently driven by KT77’s, which I could modify to around 0.07% 2nd order distortion at 1W@6Ohms. which sounds very detailed and clean. The trio’s allready show that cleanliness. Alternatively I also use Hypex nc400 mono’s. These make really a different sound. I like both, however. Further upstream, not shown on the picture, is Music First TVC, Lehman Black Cube preamp, Michell Gyro SE tt, Jelco SA250 arm fitted with Jico Seti-Hori cartridge, the analogue branch. The digital branch comprises of a DIY dac based on four parallel NOS decks, I2S fed by RPi plus ALLO Kali reclocker.
Sorry for all these details, it reads a bit like showing of…. ‘music’ is the drive we share, all else are peripheral requisites, so far I like these peripherals that you developed.
Happy easter weekend !”
