Shame though, as a RWA Tera Player would be awesome...

You lucky dog!!!!

Anyone who've had good experiences of the Tera with a smaller, much smaller than the Epsilon S, amp?

I have been tempted by the Wagnus amp but not for the Tera. IMO amping the Tera negates it's ultimate portability purpose. But of course whatever works for you...and this rig still looks cool. I have tried the Tera with RSA 71b briefly and it sounded awesome.

You are right.  One of the key beauty of Tera is its portability.  I brought Tera only without amp over my two-week trip back home to Toronto as it makes not much difference while on the plane (with all the noises).

I agree with others that while on the move it's hard to justify using Tera with amps because it defeats the purpose of maximum portability.

But every once in a while when I'm at home I use Tera with Corda Quickstep and it sounds wonderful.

Check this page for details and dimensions:

Duo? After reading Bootsy's post about needing to test 25 to pick 1, I'm not too keen on getting one without a demo. How about the Ortofon MHd-Q7? Anyone tried that with a Tera?

Not the Duo but the latest one which is the Pure II and apparently really good.

Yes, stacking a Tera would seem to defeat the point of having a Tera in the first place. Unless, of course, it's the smallest stack for the bestest sound maybe?

Just checked out the info on the Vorzuge web site. Looks good and it's certainly small. Any first hand experience on a Tera?

That is also true to all DAPs and portable amps, not confining to Tera, as Tera is not the smallest out there.

Really? I was under the impression that the Tera is smallest hifi quality DAP.

Depending on your definition of hifi quality DAP: the Sanza Clip+ is about 1/2 the size of the Tera.

 

BTW asked Charles about his opinion having modded the Tera myself and the possibility for an external (very compact) solution.

Can't imagine I'm the first one asking his opinion about this but keeping my fingers crossed...
