    Cybershaft new top model 10M clocks : UPOCXO-OP20A/OP21A

    Pls borrow the G1 from the dealer and you will be the first audiophile to do such a comparison. :D I did a similar experiment >5 yrs ago. Forgot the exact older models but it was the top Esoteric clock then. Giving an Antelope 10M rubidium clock signal to the Eso clock as 10M reference...

    Robert Koda Takumi K15 Preamp

    I guess even though Audioexotics HK has 3 showrooms, they carry so many brands of turntables and can't display/demo all of them together. Vertere is IMHO still their most musical brand.

    Rocking the Boat : Nord Hypex NC1200 Signature Amplifier

    This ATM Audio RPM-700 monoblock is interesting. This review is worth reading : https://www.hifi-advice.com/blog/review/analog-reviews/amplifier-reviews/atm-audio-epm-700-class-d-power-amplifier-with-korg-nutube-triode-input-buffer/ It was said to resemble class A or A/B poweramps. Yes, the...

    Techdas titanium screw

    Techdas' titanium screws are one of the best in the market. The other good ones are those from Acoustical Systems and Vertere. My diehard LP friends in HK told me that not all titanium screws were good because they were not pure titanium but alloys and the quality/sonics were diff.

    Agree 100% with Michael Lavorgna. He mentioned about Meaningful Delight. In my own wordings : very few top dac in the market can connect with the listeners & their heart/emotion and Totaldac is definitely one of them!

    A new Cessaro desktop horn speaker : It's not a toy!

    Newly arrived at Hong Kong. A true horn design with nano sized mono amps. Due to the lockdown I haven't listened to it but my frds who did so said that it's super cute, with surprisingly good sonics and maybe better than the Wilson Audio TuneTot as a true desktop speaker.

    Robert Koda Takumi K15 Preamp

    Hi LL21, Big congratulations! The K15EX SuperGround is a fabulous preamp! A best friend of mine has it and I visit him often. He pairs it with his four Audiovalve monos, driving Magico Q7. I agree with you 100% : the macro-dynamics is awesome!

    My visit to CH Precision

    Despite that the Law of Diminishing Returns will kick in, I am sure some crazy audiophiles will proceed to multiple boxes of L10/M10. :rolleyes:

    Most beautiful jazz ballad ever played......

    All reissues of Analogue Productions are of outstanding quality. They often can get very early masters and the remastering/production is by experts and done meticulously. Very very safe choices. However it's fun to persue the rarer Japan domestic market limited editions/versions. The sacd...
