Looks like an RCA equivalent to me.

Thanks Mike.

 

I think we have a general consensus on the ECC31 vs 6N7G (USA made) sound now. ECC31 bass is supreme, all others must bow down. It is more mellow, relaxing and discrete compared to wild cousin 6N7G who is more upfront, pronounced on the upper bass.

Today I'll try Elise as a preamp again on the home theatre in stereo mode.

 

What I heard yesterday was a holographic sound from my bookshelf LS28. I have never heard it to sound this FULL and glorious. The same tube warm is transferred down the chain. The soundstage even expanded to my amazement. The speakers are already spaced out quite far apart as you can see from the photo I posted.

 

Playing a Chesky CD of high definition recording, I heard things I've not heard from these speakers and my Sherwood receiver before. Elise has made the sound so much more enjoyable. It's unbelievable a tube pre-amp can make so much difference. I bought all my gear new in 1998, enjoyed it in home theatre mode but I was primarily interested in stereo. It's a compromise trying to please the 'children' and myself then. I've not upgraded since then. I bought the Axis speakers, all 5, from a co-owner friend of Axis at cost price. The LS88 are made of rosewood, not wood laminated like the LS28. I bought the Denon 2 years later to beef up the amplification. Over the years, my interest in them vaned and I listen less and less to them. Even move onto car audio 4 years ago which I have also abandoned now. I am onto Head-Fi now and will probably last till the sunset years.

 

It is Elise that make me want to explore all my music on the Axis speakers again. It is that enjoyable. If you're thinking of giving your average stereo a big lift, get Elise as a preamp.

Hi Oskari...a reply at last (can't keep up with this thread, lol! :wink_face:).

 

Anyway, I too thought I could salvage something...but this 2-part epoxy resin is real tough stuff! And as this method of adapting results in extremely tight space for working (just ask JV!), any attempt to 'reverse engineer' causes massive destruction...so it's far easier to cut one's losses and try another! (Thank goodness my GEC/Osrams don't need any such treatment, lol!! :eek:)...

Ah H1 you're here. This guard on sentry duty can take a break now. :D:D:D

Guys, if I buy another Elise, can I go balanced mode with a future DAC? :P Or a Dual mono with my future home audio? LOL 

 

What do you think @hypnos1

 

I did this in my car audio, all my six channels are in dual mono configuration and it gives the 100% stereo separation. I have a Dual Mono Direct Focal Limited Edition amplifier that is stereo, best part of my system, plays the midbass drivers. Then there is a pair of same amplifiers, Arc Audio Special Edition SE 2075, I am running them in dual mono configuration either, one amplifier is running the tweeters and midrange of left side, other other is playing the tweeter and midrange of right side.

 

Wild thoughts before I sleep :D 

 

Elise MK2 should definitely/must/certainly have balanced mode, I will press the buy button with eyes closed!!!

Brother, next year I am going to replace my DSP, it will be retired after 5 years of successful services :D I'm getting some German Helix DSP PRO, the EISA award winning DSP. My current DSP is also award winner, JBL MS8 with Logic 7 tailored for cars.

 

I live in my car actually :D Recently, last week, I have driver 3000 KMs. The sound is so good that I am always blown away by the SQ, I have come to a point where if something does not sound good, I blame the recording, not my system.

 

Focal Utopia system is such detailed and revealing audio gear that you don't believe your ears most of the time. If you bring your music to my car, you'll be surprised that what have you been missing in life all this time LOL :D This is that good, it can make you cum through your ear. Car audio talk!!! LMAO 

 

:beerchug:

I know. My pro car installer has the Focal Utopia 3 ways in his car with the Focal amps and Audison Bit One. It's an incredible sound.

But there is no way that will beat the Sennhesier Orpheus.....or will it? smily_headphones1.gif

Don't tease me anymore. I am still on planet earth with Elise.

Recently you mentioned Chesky Records, Chesky developed the binaural recordings for headphone listening. If Sennheiser Orpheus plays a binaural recording then I am afraid it would create a black hole in audiophile's world :D LOL

 

I am a strong believer that headphones can never ever replace your stereo sound system :D One reason of buying Elise was to use it as a pre-amp, and I will incorporate it soon!!!

post #2038 of 13210

Don't ever be sure of that. Nothing beats the Orpheus period. It has Michelangelo's rock !!! 

 

Anyway today's listening sessions with Elise as preamp..from a selection of my precious CDs.

Hi LR,

I have binaural recordings on Atlantic Records with Wilbur de Paris from 1955. Chesky records was founded in 1988.

Everytime i listen to that binaural recording that came out 1 year or 2 ago when he is in this church and while walking towards me you might say he's  talking until he's next to me  and whispers in my ears ,now that's creepy  get's to me everytime lol
