    The Altmann Tera Player - Thread

    Apparently the ‘Acoustically Treated Wood Panels’ add an indefinable organic quality to the TP’s musical reproduction. As even though these are just cosmetic external components made of cellulose that (theoretically) have no impact whatsoever on unit sonics, a combination of owner fanaticism...

    The Altmann Tera Player - Thread

    Really?!? Charles is asking for over 3000 Euros for essentially the same device that I purchased from him years ago (as an early adopter) for 500 Euros. Whilst I enjoyed listening to my TP it became readily apparent that it’s appeal is partly predicated on ameliorating the high and low sound...

    Light Harmonic Geek Wave

    I’ve refrained from commenting for quite a while as other Indiegogo ‘tech’ campaigns that I (retrospectively) gullibly supported have also proven to be fraudulent scams. Having been duped with a few ostensibly plausible crowdfunding ventures (5 at last count) I despair at the illegality condoned...

    Light Harmonic Geek Wave

    Review: Resonessence Labs Invicta - new high end DAC/amp/playback system

    I asked Mark Mallinson this very question about the Mirus Signature Pro and his reply was - "The Signature PRO series is sonically superior Andrew. We are always experimenting with different components and solutions. Mirus signature Pro takes things to the next level beyond what we could...

    The Altmann Tera Player - Thread

    Charles is still selling Tera Players for 2,990 Euros when he wants to so it's unlikely that they'll become unavailable anytime soon. As an expensive idiosyncrasy the Tera Player excels at being a quirky DAP and does inspire intense loyalty from some owners. To use an automotive analogy, the...
