I have ordered a new Lampizator Baltic 3 Dac for my Lampizator promotion & demonstrations at Parmenter Sound in New Zealand. I am really looking forward to having the new Baltic 3 DAC here in my studio system. I have ordered the copper top option with silver faceplate, love the look of the...
I am using the Wyetech Labs Ruby Std valve preamplifier in one of my sound systems here and really like this vacuum tube line stage. Love the retro look and build. The case could have more ventilation and the volume control has quite large volume gain steps in my system using the PBN Audio M1.5...
kmyl I think if you are finding the sound a bit lifeless & not to your liking I would change your loudspeakers first to a design that delivers the tone and sound that you like best. If you get a speaker that is more sensitive and very easy to drive then dynamics are more effortless and you can...
Congratulations Peter on moving to horn speakers from your Magico book shelf speakers. I can fully understand what you will be experiencing now in your music playback. I embraced horn speakers back in 1998 and have always used them for my reference main speaker sound systems since then. I still...
Pass Labs XS Preamplifier
I have not detected any sound differences in changing our Reference Pass Labs XS preamplifier power supply cords in different directions.
I hope our power supply company ran the 50 miles of power line in the right direction to our music studio.
Cascals if you really like the sonic qualities of the ARC Ref SSE matched with the Dartzeel why do you want to change.
Preamplifiers in my opinion are the Soul of your audio system and thus provide the tonal dynamic signal being sent to your power amplifier, it comes down to your personal...
I am using the EMM Labs Pre-2 now with the Pass Labs X350.8 stereo amplifier & Rockport Technologies Atria loudspeakers, this is a wonderful sounding combination. The EMM Labs Pre-2 matches with the Pass X350.8 amplifier really well.
In my music studio I will be matching the Pass Labs XS...
Emm Labs Pre-2
I use 2 high end preamplifiers with the EMM Labs XDS1 CD/SACD player for my audio demonstrations in our music room.
Firstly the Lamm LL2.1 deluxe all valve preamplifier and the EMM Labs Pre-2, both provide wonderful sound matched with the Pass Labs X350.8 stereo amplifier...
Yes I do but I will wait until the Andy releases the new Rockport loudspeaker this year, but I will say it looks like a wonderful design and I am sure will sound incredible.
Yes you are correct they are the Pass Labs XA160.8 mono blocks powering my Osborn Grand Monument loudspeakers.
I have just taken a picture of my Pass Labs X350.8 stereo amplifier matched with the Rockport Technologies Atria loudspeakers, I am using the Lamm Industries LL2.1 deluxe...
Pass Labs amplifier
Congratulations on your new Pass Labs X350.5 amplifier.
I have the new Pass Labs X350.8 amplifier running my Rockport Technologies Atria loudspeakers and it is a wonderful combination. Personally I would not think about changing to the Classe or Bryston from a Pass Labs...
Shark finning is a wasteful and inhumane practice that involves catching a shark, killing it, removing the fins and dumping the body overboard. Finning means only 2% of the shark is actually used. It is unnecessarily contributing to declining shark numbers, some of which are already dangerously...
Yes I must be silly not to be able to hear what you are hearing with the EMM Labs XDS1 in my audio system along with all the other audio reviewers/ audio mastering engineers who use the XDS1 for their reference and rate this as one of the very best digital products made today.
Then again I...
Jeromelang, I have just read you comments on the EMM Labs XDS1, sorry for the late reply.
I have never experienced this with my EMM Labs XDS1 in my audio systems at Parmenter Sound, very strange that you have these results in your audio system. The EMM Labs XDS1 is rich full bodied and extremely...
Hi Len, I would have to agree with you (The XDS1 playback is more analog like than any other SACD player I've owned - by a considerable margin), I use the XDS1 for my reference digital playback and it is the best I have tried.
Thank you all for the warm welcome to the forum, plus thanks for the positive feed back with regards to my own personal audio reference systems.
I am looking forward to meeting you all on the WBF.
I would like to introduce my self to you all on the WBF.
My name is Jason Parmenter and my Audio company in New Zealand is Parmenter Sound, I am very pleased to join the forum and hope to be able to post some constructive comments to the treads.
Thanks Steve for asking me.
