I was looking at that the other day.  It is certainly impressive looking - inside and out.

It's that the name of the game :)

 

I wonder how much of it is a reaction to the Rag.

The only thing that scares me is the Wattage usage from 48 W to 95W :O, in a cold winter it must keep your room warm xp

I think another consideration might be whether to use one of these HE integrated power regenerator components or to use an external power filter/regenerator. 

 

Other components such as source and transport will need to be plugged into a separate power conditioner.

 

Maybe somehow it is better to have the power filter closer to the component, but this would be a question better answered by Kingwa.

 

I can see possible efficiencies either way though.  With separate filter the mechanical vibrations and electromagnetic field from the big transformers are isolated, and all components can receive power with similar phase timing, if that is important.  Physically I cannot fit two HE-350 side by side on my rack in any case.

 

Additionally, as I recall PSAudio's power regenerators recommend separate circuits for each regenerator due to noise dumped back onto the line.  Not sure if this will be the case with these products.

What is difference between master 8 and 9? Also anybody compared 8 or 9 against Mjolnir?
post #876 of 876

Master 1 is the M5/6/7 without the HP amps, and if you change the FET (in the M5/6/8) to the K170/J74 (4 prs) & C2240/A970 (also 4 prs), that's the M1.

 

Why he killed the 5/6/8? Cos M9's preamp isn't as good as M1. If we mod the 5/6/8 (the preamp part which mentioned above), then nobody would buy the M9.

 

Why? Cos, the HP amp in the M9, well, that's essentially the same one in the 5/6/8.
