    Today I thanked God for all of the more money than brains audiophiles out there buying uber-expensive gear and cables, for without them, there would be no secondary markets for guys like me to be able to cash in at pennies on the dollar. B)

    Thanks for the great deals and even better sound. :p

    I lugged this 84lb beast up 2 flights of stairs yesterday after it came back from being repaired (intermittent channel) . Much better synergy with the ads 1530's than the fill in amp; Proton d1200

    Cables are transformative when you get the synergy right with everything. The introduction of silver cables between my Pass X0.2 and the Carvers, and from the amps to the speakers. The subtlest of details are now popping all over the place. This is the closest to real I have ever heard my system sound.

    I am certain you are on the right path with those

    Put the Sofia 2A3s back into the "Simple 2A3" amplifier.
    Just because I could :)

    Upgraded the Triton Ones to the Reference. A demo pair came up for sale at a good price so I couldn't help myself.

    Nice bro. Are you running the BHK for the mains and the M700’s for other speakers?

    Not a BHK, that is a P10 Regenerator. You probably posted from a mobile so you couldn't see my signature. This is my 2 Channel setup. Amp is a Bryston 4B3. Those other PS Audio items you see are the Power Bases. The rest of my setup is Bryston.

    I don't think that's a BHK in there, maybe a Power Plant? Certainly does look like 4 M700 monos, which is a LOT of power.

    I installed a full loom of Wireworld Platinum today. Now to start the burn in process of all this gear.

    The latest, greatest WW 8, I assume . . . Too soon for a write-up?

    Come to axpona. Right now my system is in burn in stage. I don’t have a single old component currently and the sound changes every few hours. It’s all mostly burned in now so it will be ready for Chicago.

    Juno Reactor - Bible of Dreams on repeat ought to get it burned in that final little bit!

    About to pay the repair bill on a pass labs amp...

    It won't be anywhere near as bad as what you expect...

    Dunno, this one felt kind of painful...

    I'm actually kind of glad it was broke though. I was excited to have a pass Amp and it sounded terrible... So atleast it was broke. Haha
