    I don't know if this is the pre-transformer updated H3000 or there is another update coming down the pike. I wrote Joe to see which it was I haven't heard anything from the manufacturer and would have thought would since am writing a review on the unit--plus shortly the Puritas cartridge.

    I have seen the M-3000s are now using the KT120 - considering the improvement this tube can operate in Audio Research amplifiers these must be good news.

    That turns out to be a pre-transformer updated unit and Joe's replacing it with the H3000V model.

    OK. Thanks Myles>
    Science should strive to make a perfect product instead of tryingr to convince me that it already has.

    Alas, I had to return the H-3000, L-3000, and M-3000s to Dave a couple of months ago. I was most upset to see them go!

    I obtained an H3000 a few weeks ago, and am still breaking it in. I am reluctant to pass judgment for that reason, and the fact that my usual line stage (a Lamm L2) is out of commission right now- the substitute line stage I am using simply doesn't have the midrange resolution of the L2. But, based on what I am hearing in a compromised set-up, the H3000 sounds very immediate and at the same time, not 'forced' or harsh, and the spatial qualities, which have been mentioned in some of the reviews, are quite evident, even in these circumstances. I am looking forward to using this unit -it invites you to keep playing records late into the night, which is a good sign.

    High-end is full of biases, some built on previous experiences, others just due to word of mouth, reading and irrational reasons, such as sympathy towards the designer, dealer of the aspect of the equipment.
    It is important we acknowledge it, because it is a way of avoiding the expectation biases influences when making choices and judgements.

    All this just to tell I would love to listen to an all Allnic system playing the Aida's. I never listened to any Allnic system, but it is a brand that really attracts my curiosity.
