  1. I run a Icon Audio valve line stage with the Halcro and it works very well together.
  2. I spun some records today though mine. excellent.
  3. If you failed to read his original post, he asked for suggestions. end of story.
  4. Sorry to tell you it is a fair comparison as Kerisabe included this model Krell in his list.
  5. The KSA 150 I has sounded very average, I have a Halcro MC 20 that sounds better in every area over the Krell, , The Halcro is a very good amp and originally cost 8,000 US but can be purchase for about 2500 AUD, a real bargain, I use a valve Icon Audio LA4 MK 3 line stage and this combination in my set up is brilliant.https://magentaaudio.com.au/product/halcro-logic-mc20-2-channel-power-amplifier/
  6. I do not understand how you can leave the choice of speakers to another person as it is you that will be listening to it, there are a lot of very good Australian speaker manufacturers that will be better or equivalent to the imported products, Adelaide speakers can custom build what ever you want, I have two 15 inch sub woofers from Edward in my two channel music system and they are brilliant, give him a call and talk to him. http://www.adelaidespeakers.com/index.html
  7. Change the four to something else , then they don't have to match the original and the world is your oyster.
  8. The Icon Audio LA4 mk 111 pre amp comes with the tube cover. http://www.iconaudio.com/main-products/la4-mk-iii-pre-amplifier/ http://www.iconaudio.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Brochure-Complete-July-2018.pdf

  10. I paid $3000 for a one owner Pink Triangle Anniversary fitted with a SME 5 arm, it was complete with all boxes and manuals, this turn table today will run rings around most turn tables and there are bargains to be had if you look around.
  11. I have run short cables from the low bi-wire terminals on my speakers to the high level inputs on the subs.
  12. A noticeable improvement in deep base over the grand supreme s. when you take them out of the system it is very obvious.
  13. Maybe you did not hear it with speakers that it suited, In my system there is no harshness or edge and do not find it to clean, I have a 1969 Karmann convertible beetle, a1960 Karmann Ghia, a 1966 type 34 Ghia and a 1960 beetle all restored over may years and most are highly modified.
  14. I have a MC 20 for two years and it replaced a Krell KSA 150 and it trounces that, the Krell is dark sounding in comparison and was slow as well, I also have a very good Musical Fidelity amp and it is also better in my system than that, Imaging is fantastic, good control in the base also with a nice top end.
  15. Any of the Mark knofler or Norah Jones albums.
