Hi Airy,
I remember that amp from AA days and pleased to see you still have it.
Did you ever try a DC coupled amp rather than IT coupled amps as I believe your other amps are also using IT?
JM is still at it btw
All the best

Ayon Crossfire 3 integrated amp into hORNS Universum.

As a "summer amp" because even though it gets quite hot, it is still a lot less heat than the Aries Cerat Incito preamp AND the KR Audio Kronzilla SX poweramp together ;)

And here for Master Tang with a little more angle ;)

You still feeding the Crossfire with the Incito? How does the sound on the Universums compare to the KR SX?

I use the Ayon Crossfire 3 as an integrated Amp not to generate unneccessary heat.
The Kronzilla is still quite a bit better sounding.

.... "stressless" music ....
I like it (both).
Top.
I tried every possible chair there is and unfortunately the ugliest of the already ugly enough "stressless" chairs was the most comfortable one :eek:
I didn't want to believe it and tried all chairs again, only to find this exact ugliest model to still be the best suiting for me :rolleyes:
I listen long hours and a comfortable chair is mandatory for me.

Can we see a photo of your second system, the one with the Odeon No. 38/2?

You're welcome ... stressless ... long hours .... music. View attachment 55556 [/QUOTE]

Hi Karel,

Are the Satohorns that far forward in your room to physically time align with the horns behind (due to sheer length of the Sato)?
