    I heard good things about the atmosphere cables. Waiting for them to come cheap on the used market

    Hello!
    My question: between the cooler of the line module of the 30SV, what is written in...? Rev.E...?
    Another question: have you ever seen "Rev.C" module...?
    I think that Rev.A was in the early 30S, Rev.B in the 30SL, Rev.D in the G2 SL and SS; and what about SV...?

    And.... 30SC...?


    hhhhmmm

    Thank you.

    @Ack,
    Would you be so kind to post the DMC 30SV official specification sheet. The one posted on page 3-4 of this thread by Wizard was titled "preliminary." As a WBF senior member you have pretty much led the way on specifics concerning the official word on Spectral products and the company's website has fallen behind posting the 30SV specs.

    Sorry that's all I have as well. I am equally annoyed that there is no web page on the preamp, over a year after its announcement. It feels like a phantom product, or an undocumented immigrant BTW, there is nothing "official" about what I say, I just like to share what I know and hear.

    Dear Sirs

    A question, in the model DMC-30SS of Spectral, which of the inputs this preamplifier has better performance, input XRL or RCA?

    Best Regards
    Joao

    With the 30SS I would use the RCA connection; my 30SV is first preamp with which I have used the balanced in.

    The 30SV web page is finally up, after 18 months http://spectralaudio.com/30SV%20web%...30SV%20Web.htm

    Hello. We can all agree that the 30SV is superior to all previous versions of their preamps. Just wanted to know if anyone has moved up from a 30SS to a 30SV with a non-Spectral amp? What type of improvements did you hear, small incremental changes or jaw dropping? Also, can someone expand on what idiofilo posted regarding the cooler module of the 30SV. Am I to assume by his statement that the 30SS is technically "coloured" due its slight "warmth" over the 30SV? If I did not have any immediate plans in purchasing the DMA 300/400 amps, is the move to a 30SV unjustified and resources are better spent in upgrading my speakers? Thank you to any responses.
