    Splitting preamp out for sub and power amp

    Thank you so much for the reply!! I bought the AMC CVT 2100 MK2 as power amp only, and it is a major upgrade over my NAD 275BEE, really! Now all I own is class A and I have that tube sound I like. I have ordered a better sub and will continue using the y-splitter from the pre-amp.

    Splitting preamp out for sub and power amp

    Hi, So I have taken some new gear home to try out - some dacs and an AMC Class A Integrated tube amp. My speakers are on wall Dali Rubicon LCR, they play insanely well, but they lack a little bass. So, I invested in a small sub. I have been running a NAD power amp from my Burson Soloist as...

    Sony RSX GS9 in home setup?

    Hi,   So, I was wondering if getting the Sony RSX GS9 for my home setup is worth it. It seems the only LDAC capable receiver component out there, and I would love to be able to use the LDAC bluetooth from my Sony Xperia XZ phone to play lossless music from the phone.    I was thinking of...

    New Burson Conductor - V2 and V2+

    Thanks for the answers! I am especially interested if the sound is somewhat warmer, higher detail is great but I feel my current sound is a bit too harsh... Would like more of a tube sound...

    A few questions:   I am current using a Burson Soloist as my pre-amp and a KingRex 384 as dac.   I am currently in Australia an thinking about acquiring the Virtuoso...    1) Would that be an upgrade   2) What are the RCA dac outs for?   Thanks in advance! /A

    M2Tech HiFace DAC 32/384 impressions?

    So guys, can anyone tell me if this will drive a pair of MDR 1Rs directly? If so, I might get it, if not I will get the Dragonfly 1.2 or the Cambridge XS... I had the first Dragonfly, but returned it - did not really impress me that much.

    Need help choosing power amp and wires for future stereo setup...

    Quote: I love mine, it has a major effect on both my already powered KingRex UD384 and with my Music Streamer II it severely improves the quality. More power, clearer sound. Have you gotten yours, what are your impressions?

    Anyhow - this will have to wait until either I or my downstairs neighbor moves, he gets hysterical every time I play something - no matter what time of day - a real pain...

    Need help choosing power amp and wires for future stereo setup...

    Is there then a better alternative to the Maggies around the same price point, but with decent bass response - nothing in the same league right!? Maybe I just would have to suffer that loss for a while...

    Need help choosing power amp and wires for future stereo setup...

    I just acquired myself the Burson Soloist, which I will be using with my HE-500 from the UD384+UPower off of the Vaunix USB HUB and my MacBook Pro with Audirvana.  Now that I have such a good pre-amp, I am looking into investing in a full stereo setup. I have decided the following:  ...

    Burson Soloist

    Very interested in buying this, but I wont have money until the end of this coming week... So am I right to understand mint condition, one month old? Do you know how this pairs with the HE-500s? I am using the UD384 w. U-Power and MacBook as source. I currently own the EF-5, but I am convinced...

    FINAL REDUCTION: Luxman P-200 Headphone Amp

    FAKE EF5!?

    Quote: I don't understand how it could happen either quite frankly. The tube was indeed packed in a separate foam compartment though, I installed it myself without noticing the missing pin. At first I feared it had broken off inside the amp, but I was extremely careful both placing it in...

    FAKE EF5!?

    Problem found! I went and got a hex-key set and removed the protective glass/plastic and pulled out the tube. It is missing a connector-pin, only eight and one is clearly not there, doesnt even look like it was broken off at some point, looks like it was never attached. I am ordering some new...

    FAKE EF5!?

    Poor means significantly worse than my computers headphone out. Meaning distant, sounds like the IEM's are rattling and the bass is uneven rumbling/shaky as if under water. In general it sounds like when you pull out the headphone plug just a smidgen and get the unclear yet not yet mono sound.
