    Coincident Statement Linestage

    I just can tell you that Coincident Statement is just a little bit "light" in the lower octaves, where other linestages are more full bodied. Better if you have the Psvane WE replica that are more sweeter and better in midrange area where the sound is more defined and luxurious; also bass region...

    JAMES BOND 007: No Time To Die Trailer (2020)

    I found that Daniel Craig fits the 007 role perfectly following the standard look of XXIth century. Connery had a tad bit of more in everything but I'm probably suggested by the fact that when he was in the leading role the world was different and I was very young. Neverthless I'm excited to see...

    Ciao Gian. This Is a great idea! You'll have fun and full satisfaction with the best of your vinyl collection. About weight what's exactly the problem? You pay two or three piano movers and they'll take the speakers at your upper floor. When I bought my MM3's they worked very hard to take each...

    DMA-250 S3 stereo power amplifier

    I listened to the system of my friend; sorry I don't have to post images. I can confirm the improvement from 250 to 260; neverthless it's overall marginal and basically limited to a better resolution and detail; especially in mid-high frequencies where with 260 there's less grain. Bass is...

    Who Is Your Favorite Orchestral Conductor

    Very old school: Wilhelm Furtwangler and Bruno Walter, especially on Beethoven symphonies. I loved also the music directed by Fritz Reiner, very different in approach and timing from the two old previous Master; probably It's only a suggestion that comes from some excellent american LP's . I...

    New 468 monos

    Congrats Mike. Your decision to upgrade has not been something easy after a long road with 458's, neverthless audiophiles are restless men, we can't resist in stop mode for a long period. I'm curious since specifications between the two models are different in terms of power vs. load; this...

    (Tube) phono stage with multiple equalization curves

    I do have the Goldnote in my system, in its price range its probably the best available with three curves. It can be upgraded with a dedicated Power supply separate unit (absolutely recommended, less glare and more Dynamic with the separate PSU).
