    Cavalli Audio Liquid Fire

    Last month I bought a Project Debut Carbon with a Bellari VP130 tube phono preamp to begin my reentry to the vinyl source world, which I've been away from for 5 or 6 years. Still using and enjoying the Cavalli LF and LCD-2R1. I'm absolutely loving just enjoying listening to music that sounds so...

    Alex Cavalli just confirmed the need for the phono preamp as well with another reminder about the RIAA equalization requirement. He's very impressive with the fast and thorough replies to any LF related questions. Similar thanks to Morbid Toaster and Steve Eddy.

    Cavalli Audio Liquid Fire

    I'm considering reentering the vinyl and turntable world with a Project Debut III Carbon tt. Does anyone know if the output from the stock Ortofon MM cartridge has enough output for the LF or should I anticipate buying a phono preamp? Thanks

    Cavalli Audio Liquid Fire

    Haven't reviewed all 110 pages of this thread so maybe this has been asked and answered. Some of you must use different sources to your LF (ie DAC and phono). Do you use high quality rca Y adapters (one male, two female) with rca cables from each source and switch the sources on and off as...

    LCD-2 / LCD-3 FR graphs

    Quote: It's been quite a few months since I had the V200 but I seem to remember  the bass being very  solid. The only reason I sold it was at the time I had it and a Lyr and the tube presence of the Lyr won out. I was really tempted to pair the V200 with an Eastern Electric Mini Max DAC to...

    Quote: Thankyou. Very helpful comparisons of these tubes and an honest answer about the stock tubes. Anyone else have any thoughts on specific differences between the stock tubes and any upgrades?

      Quote:   This is a tempting upgrade. I have to pass along how happy I am with the LF (stock tubes) fed from a Bryston BDP-1(mostly FLAC) and W4S DAC2 then out to LCD-2r1 with Q cable. Before settling in to tonight's hockey games I listened to the first 3 and last 2 tracks of Genesis'...

    Quote: The interesting thing I've discovered about the forum and me is that having found a happy level of contentment with my current setup I'm less inclined to scour the forum and more inclined to just enjoy listening. (although it's quite easy to do both at once!) I now have more...

    I'm sure you'll enjoy the LF when it arrives in February, Warrior Ant. With the W4S DAC2 and LCD-2R1 I'm really content with my listening situation right now and knowing you're also one of the many W4SDAC2 fans, hope your very educated listening skills find the same contentment that my decidedly...

    Amplification for the LCD-2 v1 .. - which would be better Schiit Lyr vs Audio-GD C-2.1

    I have no idea about the Audio-GD C-2.1 but can tell you that the Lyr effortlessly drives the LCD-2r1s. I used a pair of Genalex Gold Lions in the Lyr and it was a great match. Volume is definitely not an issue, dynamics very good and all frequencies seemingly  covered with equal authority. It's...

    Selling in Canadian Dollars

    Thanks for the reply. It's hard doing the conversion between CDN and US $ these days as it varies by small amounts frequently but the dollars are close to par. Where I found the problem came in was on a recent transaction Paypal charged an additional amount to convert from US to CDN dollars on...

    Selling in Canadian Dollars

    I've got an item listed for sale and would like to do the transaction through paypal in Canadian dollars. The currency options don't allow for CDN dollars. Is it good form to just say in the listing itself that the transaction should be in Canadian dollars even though the dollar amount says US...

    Cavalli Audio Liquid Fire

    My Liquid Fire arrived today and I hope and believe it's the final piece in my headphone system. I've enjoyed music and the equipment to play it through for many years but circumstance necessitated a headphone system now rather than a speaker system for my personal listening. This phase of the...
