    Tripoint Troy Elite - Installed

    Fully understand your excitement. Although I have not heard the Troy NG in my audio system - using the Tripoint Emperor mk ii as well as as the Tripoint Elite NG - I have no doubts whatsoever that you will be floored and will experience musical satisfaction as never before. Have fun.

    Tripoint Troy Elite - Installed

    Hi Emconn, Maybe you want to share the (high quality of) various components of your music system with our members so that they can understand the audio context within which you are employing the Tripoint Elite NG?

    LDMS Server

    Typically additional transparency - one of the benefits of this update - creates the illusion of a larger soundstage. However, initially this was not the case in my situation although I immediately experienced a better 3D presentation within this somewhat shrunken soundstage (only the soundstage...

    LDMS Server

    I agree: the dynamics are clearly improved after the update. Inter Alia large classical pieces like the symphonies of eg Bruckner, Mahler, Shostakovich, etc clearly benefit from this improvement. But I consider the additional smoothness and purity even more important. Initially I lost some...

    Challenge Classics

    As (nearly) all of Bert’s dxd recordings this file with lute music sounds very impressive indeed.

    I'm a bit sick about this.....Marja and Henk

    Although fellow countrymen I never met nor spoke with this couple. That said, this is such a moving (love) story! In times of increasing polarization it is reassuring to know that real love still exists in our world . May they both Rest In Peace.

    LDMS Server

    Lucas visited me last week to perform inter alia the upgrade to his server. He visited me on Tuesday afternoon as well as Wednesday morning. Indeed this (software) upgrade is very significant indeed! I experience inter Alia additional dynamics, transparency, serenity and smoothness. Furthermore...

    PCM vs. DSD on Select II

    Might it be - and just to be sure, Mike, - that you mean Challenge Classics (original recordings are in dxd) in stead of Channel Classics (original recordings are in dsd). I also prefer the dxd Challenge Classics recordings to their dsd version : the latter sound clearly more dynamic than the...

    Goebel Divin Noblesse Speakers in Da House!

    You put things upside down, David: apparently / regretfully reading carefully seems not to be your strong suit. And just to be clear on that as well: I am not looking for anyones approval, least of all yours.

    Goebel Divin Noblesse Speakers in Da House!

    It is not about someone not liking a certain audio product, be it very expensive or not. That is perfectly fine. Equally fine are discussions about various audio products in which members disagree with each other. But please do state your opinions in a respectful way. Bashing products or...

    Yep, fully understand that. Where are you currently heading in your audio journey?

    Yes indeed, a waste of time.

    Bye, bye David. Not going to waste my time.

    Goebel Divin Noblesse Speakers in Da House!

    With all due respect, David, but I am not going to respond after your ‘cat litter boxes’ remark. I have much better things to do in life.

    Goebel Divin Noblesse Speakers in Da House!

    Good to know that we agree on this point.

    Goebel Divin Noblesse Speakers in Da House!

    The intesting thing is, David, that I think exactly the same about the Lamm amps that you love so much.

    Kagura/g-1000 in combination with the Tidal LA’s are not sounding bad either

    Goebel Divin Noblesse Speakers in Da House!

    Hi Bob, I was just ‘teasing’ of course. Undoubtedly you and many other USA Kondo users are fully capable of letting the Kondo equipment sound mighty fine. Still enjoying my G-1000 and Kagura combination, although - as you gave pointed out earlier in this thread - they need some ‘care’ (good...

    Goebel Divin Noblesse Speakers in Da House!

    And Howie, enjoy your audio journey. Never heard your ‘white beauties’ but undoubtedly they are - like the Kagura’s - great amps.

    Goebel Divin Noblesse Speakers in Da House!

    Everybody is entitled to his/her audio opinion of course. So a preference is perfectly fine. But saying that (in your view) Kondo “always sounds like crap to me” might also be an indication for something else: you have ‘peculiar ears’ or you guys in the USA really don‘t know how to properly use...

    As far as I know the answer is no.

    ZANDEN Choku, Chukoh and Jinpu

    Very interesting although the price will likely be extreme and availability will likely be quite scarce. On the same page as regards red book replay with the Zanden 2000p/5000S. That said, some high res files - in particularly in the dxd format - sound to my ears very impressive indeed.

    Tripoint Troy Elite - Installed

    In light of the quality difference of these two ground cables such an approach seems not advisable because in this way you create a difference between the right and left channel. But Miguel surely can answer your question much better than I can. I would reach out to him and find out what he...

    Tripoint Troy Elite - Installed

    Not sure what the current prices are and it - ofcourse - depends on the length of each cable. Miguel can inform you in this regard.

    Tripoint Troy Elite - Installed

    I am sorry but I have no Tripoint Thor se ground cables available anymore. That said please keep the following in mind: good as they are, the Thor se cannot be compared to the Emperor mk ii ground cable. The latter is much, much better than the former. Yes, these ‘Anaconda’s’ cost an arm and leg...
