    That is a sweet looking 205... look forward to your impressions.
    The Gear... Carver "Statement" Mono-blocks, TriangleArt Reference SE with Pass Labs Xono Phono Preamp, Walker Precision Motor Drive, ClearAudio Goldfinger Diamond v2 cartridge and Origin Conquerer Mk3c tonearm, Polk Audio "Signature" Reference Series 1.2TL with complete mods, Pass Labs X0.2 three chassis preamp, PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MkII, Pioneer Elite SC-65, Oppo UDP-205 4K Blu-ray player, Sony XBR70x850B 4k, Polk audio AB700/800 "in-wall" surrounds.

    Saying that it's "too hard" to pursue your dreams is no different than admitting to yourself that you are too lazy to achieve them.

    I wondered the same thing about the caps when I popped the hood, it is all very well done and built, I don’t see where any one thing was sacrificed for the sake of saving a buck..

    Nice! Congrats and enjoy!

    Dan's tube regulated power supply is well designed and uses quality components. Clean power. I used upgraded tubes in the PS.

    I've owned his SWP 9.0SE, Sony 999ES with tube reg PS, Sony 9100ES with tube reg PS and his SWLP 9.0SE with Blue face, tube reg PS and built in phono. I had one issue with a PS which he corrected quickly.

    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    And it’s supposed to only get better after 200 hours??? I can’t freakin wait!!!

    Talk about taking it to a whole new level, I have that feeling again like I did when I just got started in this hobby, it’s been a long time since I have felt this way..

    The first one I purchased yes I did, the second one I purchased that I was lucky to get during their last runs is the one I sent to ModWright, no I did not let it fully run, but it now has about 100hrs on it, and still sounds fantastic..

    I did everything but the region free upgrade, I will never use it....

    Also I figure I can apply my own blue goop, and hockey tape for better sound... :wink:
