  1. Dali Ikons for memory and Paradigm S8's, like I said many years ago.
  2. Congratulations @needlerunner. Heard that combo at Class A audio recently, they really gel together. cheers Frank.
  3. I've had so much gear over the past 15 years, and have built up an open mind regarding all sorts of amps. I owned a pair of Vincent monos, SP "something" and found them utterly lifeless and boring, absolutely no dynamics at all, sent them back to CAV for a Creek EVO....much better. I also heard one of their power amps driving a pair of Dynaudio focus 110 bookshelf, a bit better but kind of dull and cumbersome. They look value for money but power wise I think I'd prefer a NAD pre/power 150/8 ohms. That was approx 10 years ago, but just recently Kevin from Class A offered an audition with some PMC 25.26's just to reinforce his high regard for them and maybe change my opinion. I didn't get around to it, but I'm sure Vincent has improved since then judging by their fan base here on SNA.
  4. Never heard the Pandions, but have known of a popular musician who bought a pair of 30's, might be saying something. @initforthemusic Dead right about the Ranger Master, ridiculously good at 3k and look super with the grills on.

  8. @Snoopy8My bad, misinterpreted your reply.
  9. @betty boopWOW ! Thought you were joking, absolutely stunning, blacks the way to go and a nice touch with the blue mood lighting, definitely a decorative centre piece.
  10. @betty boop Have you heard it? It's going to be my next set up, period. I'm lusting for the 800 to be honest, and maybe the Ruby to off set costs. @Snoopy8 It's not night and day between well recorded CD's and SACD in general, but after listening to high end SACD players i.e. Marantz SA-10 , Accuphase DP-560, you can actually visualize the depth and rightness of tone SACD has to offer.
  11. @betty boopI loved this system so much, I was lost for words once the Nu vista fully warmed up, it's an unbelievable combination of three components that work well with each other. I didn't audition the Ruby but Paul advised there was hardly any difference fidelity wise between them. 2k rrp roughly. A good friend who has an expensive vinyl rig was with me today gave it a huge recommendation and now wants to hear it in his own system.
  12. I was at CAV auditioning a Marantz SA-10 into Musical Fidelity Nu Vista 600, speakers were PMC Twenty5.26. The soundstage and tonality via SACD was exemplary when compared to well recorded EMC and Acoustic Arts CD's. SACD a no brainer, especially when you've got a front end like the SA-10.
  13. What about the Ayon CD-35, that's been getting rave reviews amongst the heavy hitters i.e. Esoteric, DCS. surely it's worth an audition.
