    I’m in the UK Sir but it’s great to know the global price possible :), at least with fx equivalence

    Is there anyone know about the potential retail price of Zeus monoblocks and new flagship Olympus preamp? When they become available?

    Hi Razwan, it's been a long time, hope you're doing well :). I understand your philosophy of matching pre-pow from the same brand for synergy and avoiding any technical issues. However, when paring different brands together, it's good fun too and in many occasions, the result is just simply...

    My wife would be upset but she will cope, but not to a point that she'll kick me out and sleeping in the back garden Keda :D. She knows me well and is ok with my hobbies. I'm still very much looking after my family, especially my children :)

    It's interesting enough when I see the specs of the Hercules and Master Collection monoblocks are pretty similar. It's just the itch now trying something new and I know it's bad. I totally agree, when you reach a certain level, price may not be the main factor to determine performance. It's...

    I truly know what you mean "install and forget" Marcus, as it exactly happened in my system when I had the Koda matched with Karan years ago and totally ignore tubes as I have the warm side of tubes and powerful side of ss. My boxes never moved since being taken out of the crates and staying...

    I can't agree more as I enjoy both playing the guitar and listening to the music from my system. But somehow I was so deep with guitars during the last couple of years and wrote a decent amount of songs, so I was leaning on that side more than hifi. 12 years ago, I was purely addicted to hifi...

    Thanks for letting me know, I'm using Q5s and Koda K10 preamp in my system. Nothing changed during the last 8 years as I moved on from hifi to acoustic guitars and starter collecting ultra/highend guitars. I write songs and play the instrument, so if you're the same then you'll know exactly...

    Thanks for sharing your experience with Pilium. The first time after 10 years I was hugely impressed with "a more affordable amp" like the Pilium Achilles when hearing it driving the A5s at the MOC. Honestly, the Dartzeel/Stenheim room took my heart but they are too expensive and I don't have...

    Sigma Acoustics - Orchestra 2.9 speakers

    Here we go, I just snipped from the original pictures taken from my camera, so potentially all the sizes have been shrunk and fit in here

    Sigma Acoustics - Orchestra 2.9 speakers

    The Bayz sounds great to me, really impressed with the design. I even talked with the designer when I met him at Marriott after giving them a proper listen. But they look truly unconventional to me and wife would not tolerate if I bring them home, just my own thought haha.

    Sigma Acoustics - Orchestra 2.9 speakers

    "Hi, Sonrock, I am very happy with your positive thoughts on the Sigma Acoustics speakers and in particular with the listening sensations of the 2.9. If I understand correctly, they will arrive in your facility, and I can guarantee you that you will not have difficulty in placing and you will...

    Sigma Acoustics - Orchestra 2.9 speakers

    Yes I agree in terms of how those speakers sound in my system with my big ss monoblocks rather than those tiny tube amps. But interestingly, the AGD amps are designed and manufactured in the US with a pretty high retail price, not "toy price" hahaha. Here is the link...

    Sigma Acoustics - Orchestra 2.9 speakers

    Hi everyone, I'm wondering if anyone here has used Sigma Acoustic speakers before and your experience with this hiend brand from Italia? Actually, I've just come back from Munich earlier this week and Sigma Acoustic room is the last one that I could visit because there are simply too many...

    Lampizator DSD DAC

    Thanks Keda for your kind offer but if you are doing so, you might need to bring hell a lot of things over here as you see I don't use computer to play dsd files, also not sure if my esoteric transport will work with the GG.
