    Cables for Pilium Leonidas and audio solution Virtuoso M speakers

    I use Argento Cables with my Pilium setup. I don’t think you can find another cable that combines finesse., neutrality and organic sound better than the FMR and FMR Extreme Edition by Argento.

    Outstanding Sound Improvement with Videos before-after/ VYDA Cables

    Seeking an R2R DAC recommendation for a tube preamp and tube amp system

    To be honest, I wouldn't bet that the APL DSD-MR mk1 is better than the APL DSD-SR mk2!!!!! I agree with you regarding the Pilium ELEKTRA dac but I have to admit that the APL 's latest dac sounds fantastic. Hopefully, a friend of mine will receive his ELEKTRA in the next couple of months so I...

    Seeking an R2R DAC recommendation for a tube preamp and tube amp system

    Not yet. I have compared the APL DSD-SR mk1 with a pre-production version of the Pilium ELECTRA dac and the Pilium clearly had bigger sound than the first generation of APL DSD-SR. Both of them sounded extremely natural but the Pilium dac was better in terms of bass, scale, resolution. Of...

    New amplifier for Tidal Piano G2

When he switched to the Piano G2 he thought that valves could not really drive his speakers with the resolution and speed he was looking for. So he switched to a Tidal Preos/ Impulse set. He and I thought that would...

    Tidal Audio Speakers cables

    Regarding the Organic cables, they have a different sound signature compared to Argento cables due to the use of Copper instead Silver material. They are definitely the best sounding cables in their price range but they lack the resolution and speed of the higher priced Argento models. I am...
