post #16 of 26
Markl,


What happened to the Directors Cut with the audio commentary and the alternate ending?

We shot a scene where I ended up with a Gilmore happily ever after, but it just didn't ring true.

How about ending up with a Gilmore V2 SE for a short time to review? That could ring true, send me a PM if you'd be interested!

An offer he can't refuse!

Thanks for the offer, gpalmer. The only amp I'm looking to audition any time soon is the new RS Emmeline 2 the Stealth, and even that one I have some trepidation. I've finally gotten to the point where I'm happy with my set-up and I don't have to think about it any more. Everything in my system now just fits together so well, I'm afraid to mess with it. Cheers.

Mark

Pity, I would have loved to have read a markl review of these two amps. They are both worthy contenders!

The Gilmore's background strikes me as eerie while the HR-2 really doesn't. I think it's partially a factor of the black background together with the speed of the Gilmore though, since to my ears it's faster than the HR-2.
My sentiment exactly!
Ultimately HR2, however it was easy on ear and had a wonderful stage, compared to both Gilmore V2 and Naim Headline, lack of speed and trasient attacks really didn't do much at least with RS1 for me. And I'd think that it is related to nosie issue somewhat ( as I could not open the volume wide as other two units on HR 2 )

I bought this based on your review - it's coming next week. Though years have passed - your review has helped!

I bought this used not realizing it only took RCA inputs (my bad), is there a way to connect a DAP to it? I bought an adaptor cable, 1 on 1 side, 2 on the other, doesn't work.

You need the RCA to 1/8 or whatever output termination (headphone out or line out) you have on your dap.  Something like this:

Thanks, didn't expect someone to see my post in an almost dead thread and reply so fast. I actually have a similar cable from Zu audio, figured what was wrong, didn't realize it needed the full size connector at the end of the headphone, duh...
