    What creates Imaging/sound stage

    You know when you have a mate over and have to move over on the couch to give them the sweet spot. Well when I replaced my ss integrated amp ($2.4K being used as a pre into a power) with my new tube pre ($2.3K) I experienced one of my most palpable moments in audio listening - the soundstage did not collapse one iota. Everything was still spot on except for an uneven balance. My speakers are standmounts that are carefully setup re: measurements from the listening position. My simple conclusion is the new pre is better than the old (and so it should be). Peter

    FS: Ayon Vacuum Tube Class-A CD-Player/DAC/Pre

    Would this be the current equivalent of the older CD-1? I'm a bit confused with the hierarchy of Ayon spinners🤔 I've heard a CD-1 in a great system and it was superb.
  4. I have a Cymer pre that this would match perfectly. Pity my speakers are super inefficient - currently fed by a 200W Plinius power amp. Pity you weren't in Hobart as it would have been a great education for me to compare the two in my setup. GLWTS.
  5. Hi all Thanks for all the interest. I will get back to all messages as soon as I can.

    Yeah but the Consonance Ref 2.2 is a great player. And at 18 kilos its going to damage the stairs.

    I still play cds, am in Hobart, and my current player is a bit old in the tooth. So I'm looking in interest - but ultimately need to wait for it to die. GLWTS. 👍

    Wow tempting. I have an Opera Audio Consonance Ref 2.2 and it is fabulous. Makes me wonder how much better this would be. GLWTS. BTW how old?
