    I finally have everything up on Mookies, except my pre is on Dalby's, and love difference they have made on each piece.

    Harry, what's the rest of your system? And what difference do you find between the mooks and the Dalby?

    Hi Mookers,

    So I have been sans system since October and only set it back up last week. I have been reassembling everything slowly and hadn't yet got the Mooks out.

    Today I decided to add some to the system to see what is what and check my previous beliefs. So first up was my Analog Domain integrated amplifier. I added my ultra diamonds as per normal and replayed the same tracks and back came some musical magic. The bass was deeper and with more texture and the stage dropped back. The timbre of instruments and authenticity of voices improved by enough of a margin to make me smile. By comparison, I took them out and inserted stillpoints in. The stillpoints provided a cleaner sound but tilted upwards the whole frequency response losing the bass texture and solidity. Amazing when you think about it as the Analog Domain is a very hefty chassis and a ss component so wouldn't necessarily assume it to be impacted like this. Anyway - Stillpoints quickly removed as music was lost by comparison and back to Mooks.

    I then placed Mook discs on GG chassis, AD amp, power supply to Aries and Aries and this took this system up another notch again mainly in musicality.

    Now the one thing that some people are more sceptical about is room tuning - I am not sure even Ked totally buys into this and he is a firm Mooker. Anyway I placed discs at the usual spots as suggested on the site and it is amazing how the stage improves in depth and the imaging improves - really baffles me tbh. Any way if you own Mooks you really need to try the room tuning. If you don't trust me, check out Greg Beron's advice and listening room.

    Based on what. Check out Siddh on audionirvana, he has CMS, mooks, dalby, everything. It is actually wrote easy to hear the difference, just like glass...this is aged and ruined ebony...Not new, the same thing is done with violins and instruments...they are tinged with wood, like pernambuco, ebony, rosewood etc...
