As expected, this will show up sometime in 2016 - in desperate need of the new SHHA modules in the 30SV preamp, replacing the older ones, and perhaps other updates...

Wonder if they change the dac chip or filters as well. An r2r with spectral output stage sounds like a winner.

The dealers have some details, but they won't tell, and we have lost a couple of teeth waiting... probably over 10 years in development, like everything else. I've come to accept that waiting for a Spectral product is like waiting for a fine scotch to mature.

Ack, how do you think a Sprectral phono stage will be different/better than your Pass XP25?

No idea, but I would expect it to be much more mature, and certainly more sophisticated in execution like their preamps and amps, with a non-existent noise floor.

that would be cool ... they should work with caol ila (maybe they could do a nice 10 yr??? for spectral) as an incentive to wait?

you have a nice system sir. wow ... well done.

what do you mean? they have released another version of SHHA module for the 30SV?
Yes. Suggest you read up on the 30SV thread, and our discussion on the custom JFETs in it

Sorry Ack, I didn't find where you were talking about a new version of SHHA module for SV version. This means which we have already 2 versions of current 30SV?
Sorry, I am not following... There is one 30SV and it has new SHHA 3 modules, plain and simple. The 30SV thread discusses all the details, with pictures. Does this help?

sorry, only misread your sentence:

"replacing the older ones" refer to your SDR4000.

Yes, "replacing the old ones" is referring to the SHHA2 (or some version of them) modules in the 4000SL - it still sounds quite good, but dated against today's top digital; BTW, I never owned a 4000 series player. So I think it's in desperate need for an upgrade, considering how impressive the sound of the 30SV with SHHA3 is.

Thanks. Yeah he's coming up here as well. No formal event that I am aware of, or invited to, but it would be interesting to listen to this unit.
