    Tobian Soundsystems - Switzerland

    I traded my pair of Verity Amadis S against the 12 FH and that`s it. No money added on my part. I have downsized substantially and have no longer the Tobian speakers or very expensive electronics. Very happy with more affordable gear and feel that I do not miss expensive high end devices at...

    New speaker choice

    I have the Nenuphar with a Triode Lab EVO 2A3 integrated. These are truly outstanding speakers! I have owned Kharma, Verity, Kaiser etc and have used all in the same dedicated listening room. I am tempted to say that I have never enjoyed my system as I am now. Been in this hobby for 40 years...

    Jonathan Valin says the Soulution 760 DAC is the best he's ever heard. Your Thoughts?

    JV reviewed the MSB many issues ago and really liked it. It opened a door for him reg how good digital playback can sound if I remember correctly. If he likes the Soulution even better, well then it is his opinion. JP

    What`s ridiculous is that you want one of us paying subscribers of this magazine to send you the review so that you can read it for free.... You can buy a pair of the Saga but cannot pay GBP 22,-? The mag is ad free and get’s its income from us subscribers. JP

    Best EL34 amps

    I am using my Nenuphar Mini with the Viva Audio Classico 300B amp with Psvane ACME 300B tubes, it sounds fantastic. No aggresiveness what so ever, just great sound all the way. Open, organic and (almost) full range. One can not expect miracles from an 8 inch driver.

    Japanese Audio: How do the best compare?

    Good amps, but nowhere near Kondo or the other exotic brands mentioned here. But they do sound "tubelike"... JP
