After all, the Absolare is the best amp I have heard. I used to own the Signature version, I can live happy with the Passion (standard) as well.

    Now I need to buy a pair of good tubes, I nhave a good idea of what to buy.

    Congrats!! Would you care to compare and contrast the Absolare Integrated to some of the other options you tried out?

    Cheers,

    Thanks.

    No, not really. All I will say is that the Absolare is the best amp I have owned. No need for a " shootout" based on my personal experiences. I do hope you understand, thanks.

    Oh my god!
    My baby spreaded water to my passion inti.
    My korean dealer sent it to factory.

    I'm not sure if this is a disastor or a chance to upgrade to signature ^^

    Back from a trip to the USA. Picked up a SR black quantum fuse (I missed the post on getting the Blue one!). Can someone please post details on how and where to change the fuse on the Absolare Integrated. I don't want to open up anything without being sure.
    Thanks to this forum I am getting close to the superb sound I got from my Behold amplification in the past. I have switched the tubes around as per a FM's recommendation....bought the most wonderful Mullard tubes and used Total Contact (which I didn't intend to swear by but now think it's one of the greatest things for a system) on my interconnects and speaker terminals!
    Next, I need to work on the upgrade of my speaker cables which good as they are do not produce the massive soundstage that I would like. I am using High Fidelity Cables CT-1 Ultimate Reference, which are about 5 years old, and debating upgrading to the new Helix version.

    As you might know, the internal wiring of this amp is made of Echole cabling. I can assure you that using external Echole cabling in combination with this amp gives amazing results. I think for the price of an Helix version cable you can also buy an Omnia Echole speaker cable.
