Meitner MA-1 and Oppo HA-1. I don't know if Dr. Cavalli will produce LCo, or not. I hope so.
Dr. Alex Cavalli kindly sent me his prototype Liquid Cobalt (LCo) amplifier for audition. I had it for four weeks.     Visually - Liquid Cobalt Looks Impressive   LCo's Build Quality is Rock Solid.   Thick black panels Perfect seams Engraved fonts Soft touch On/Off switch LED indicators High/Low gain  Smooth volume mechanism Differential hybrid SS and Tube design     Sonically – Liquid Cobalt Sounds Impressive   LCo’s sound quality is astounding.

Fortunately, I did not attempt to disassemble the drivers from the cups which would have risked the same result. I inspected the driver wires under magnification and...
No luck searching the forums for an answer so I'm posting here. I could figure it out by the process of elimination but that would take a lot of extra work. I hope someone who knows will respond.   Which terminal is positive and which is negative?   Thanks
