    EMIA Elmaformer (volume control) review

    Looks a nice pre amp, look forward to hearing your thoughts on the performance in your system

    This looks interesting.......

    Here is the guy's web site with all the information and options available. From what I have seen its a well put together TT however as pointed out the motor is from an LP12 and could be a potential weakness. The guy who builds the speed controller for him is a big LP12 fan and does various mods...

    This looks interesting.......

    Ive seen this TT a couple of times at UK shows and managed to get to hear it albeit through headphones at the UK Leamington Spa show in 2019. I cant really comment too much on the sound as for me its always difficult to judge using headphones as I'm not a headphone user but I can comment that...

    Lampizator Vinyl Phono stage arrived

    On Friday night I received a package from Greg at G Point audio, in the package was my new rack manufactured by hORNS.pl and the new Lampizator MM MK2 phono stage. This is the latest revision in the smaller case and has solid state rectification. It was late when the courier showed up on Friday...

    Tungsten Grooves Audio vibration isolation feet

    Looks quite an interesting product but I feel the price they are asking for one small footer at £1350 could put quite a few people off. A set of 3 would be £4050.

    Lampizator Valve / Tube Rolling Review Thread

    Have you not heard mate the pubs are closed in the U.K. As for the Mac it will be changed at some point all depends if we have to go on the government Furlough scheme when I have to close the factory temporary or indefinitely

    Lampizator Valve / Tube Rolling Review Thread

    I cant argue with that as Ive not done that test. However every time I have heard the Lampi paired with the Ideon irrespective of the source and the tubes there has been a big improvement on the sound.

    Lampizator Valve / Tube Rolling Review Thread

    For me the HFT Supreme fuse is a no brainer on a Lampi Dac. Also to throw another curveball into the pot try and get hold of one of the Ideon Reclockers to sit between the server and the Dac. These reclockers are the real deal, the cheaper version which is around 400 euro's performs miracles but...

    The Effect of Damping on Sound: Racks and Turntable Plinths

    Just thought I would add something to this thread myself, recently I had a custom built stand fabricated by a local guy and designed by myself for the purpose of supporting my Lenco or Spacedeck. The stand weighs currently 60kg and when the legs are filled with sand will weigh 80kg, its 500mm...

    Zero Distortion: Altec Assault and the Magic of Misho (Audio Antiquary)

    The preamp is a very very good preamp, I cant recall if it had remote control or not, if it did we didnt use it on the day. Since Ked last visited me I have managed to have a play with a Dave Slagle Autoformer which I believe is the basis for the Emia, have to say the Slagle is an awesome pre...

    Zero Distortion: Altec Assault and the Magic of Misho (Audio Antiquary)

    Hi Kedar Nice write up mate, just one thing to note that my amps are Empress Silver and not Neiro, I wished I could afford the Neiro amps, however they are still 6w SET amplifiers which run 2a3 valves. Further more to second what Ked has said in the article, the preamp did work well with my...

    LampizatOr Golden Atlantic + TRP

    Ive finally taken the advice from Fabio and orded a pair of PSVane 6CA7 tubes, hope they will be here this week for me to try out with the ACME 274B rectfier, it will be interesting to see how the 6CA7 compares to my Golden Lion KT77 which is my current favourite tube in the TRP

    Kuzma Stabi M

    I heard the new Kuzma R at the Bristol HiFi show last weekend. This was in a room being demonstrated by Kevin from Definitive Audio in the UK, they were using LV speakers and SJS amplification which they also sell. The Kuzma R was using a Kuzma 4 point arm with a Kuzma MC cart. Have to say the...

    LampizatOr Golden Atlantic + TRP

    I ran these tubes last night in my TRP they were RCA smoked glass 6V6GT, my thoughts to these was a very hard sounding tube in my system, they lacked the bass that the KT77 has. I also felt the soundstage was narrower on the width, all in all these did not do very much for me. I will give them...

    LampizatOr Golden Atlantic + TRP

    Just had confirmation from Lampizator that for TRP owners who want to try the 6V6GT tubes then this is fine, so tonight I will try the pair I have in the TRP and report back

    LampizatOr Golden Atlantic + TRP

    Hi Christoph My favourite tube combo to date is the ACME 274B rectifier with the Genelex KT 77 reissues. I have tried quite a few more pentode tubes which have included; Shuguang EL 34 GEC KT 66 smoked glass - Mullard EL 34 original Siemens EL 34 RFT EL 34 EH 6CA7 In all honesty all of the...
