Keep thinking that. Theres much noise associated with AC power. Batteries are definitely a cleaner source.

Batteries aren't used in larger power applications because of cost/size and other considerations.

Sounds great! I'm really eager to see how they stack up against each other. I hope mrarroyo has it burnt in very well till then. I think it's been about a week, so it should have over 150 hours by now.

Yes, I'll bring the E500s also.

I will not be able to meet with Vorlon1 on Saturday to compare the amps. However since there is so much interst I will give the "Reference Xin" amp to Vorlon1 so he can compare and post his impressions.

Of course the funny thing is that Dr. Xin has found a few more ways to further improve on the amp's sound and he is sending me a new board. Can't wait to hear it and if it sounds better it will be something amazing. The "Reference Xin" amp version I have has so much detail and clarity that it amazes me, it is also like two amps on at the same time. I mean you get the bulk of the music in the center and then on the perimetry you hear this other parts of the music like on 3D. You have to listen to it to hear it.

I hope Vorlon1 remembers to bring the UM2's.

I wouldn't say others can't. As I understand some here have been able to get in touch with him. Or perhaps I am very lucky!

Ok, I will take luck.

The Reference continues to improve, not that I thought there was much room to but it is taking the sound to a different level. The dynamics are almost too much, oh they are fine but I am not used to such a micro and macro array of dynamics.

post #223 of 559
Well congrats more power to you!

I simply am too much of an impuse buyer and need fast satisfaction!

Yeah! You seems to be very lucky (one of those) persons!!!

I used EL8201 as buffers in my new supermini. Very good sound and I think it must be the best buffer for low voltage XIN amps like LE and supermini!
