  1. No, nothing what I changed before the noise started. I live in an unit. Yes, it's obviously a device which works during night time.
  2. Hi all, Recently a few weeks ago I got an issue with buzzing noise coming from my speakers at certain time as I have realised and measured later. Before I did not have any issues with such noise in my system. The noise goes constantly and starts at 5:06pm and stops at 7:06am, within the rest hours in a day it is dead quiet. A few days ago I was advised that it might be ground loop issue between my preamp and phono stage. I have changed a RCA cable as it was very long to a shorter one and the noise has become much quieter, but is still there. Today I've red another advise for determining where exactly the loop occurs and I think it is between my phono stage and turntable, because when I unplug cables of the turntable from the phono stage the noise disappears. I've red many topics regarding such issues and done pretty much everything except of moving the table away from my power amplifier as there's only 0.5m distance, but I think if it was the case the noise would have been constant for all the time, not timed. I am going to do a rearrangement of my components this weekend, but would like to know from you guys what could be other things done to fix the issue? Please, any advice would be appreciated. Cheers, Art
  3. Hi there, Im looking for a Plinius M8 to buy, but it looks like I might have it difficult to find used one, so I have decided to try it in my setup just in case I won't like the sound I'm looking for. I was told that this preamp will perfectly match with my power amplifier Plinius SA250. That's why I would like to find anyone who has this model so we can try it at my place in Sydney. Thanks, Art
  4. Thanks for your comments. Still on sale
  5. Item: Primare A32 Dual Mono Power Amplifier Location: Waterloo Price: $2300 negotiable Item Condition: excellent conditions Reason for selling: Upgrade to class A Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am selling my Primare A32 Dual Mono Power Amplifier in excellent conditions.It is been in use in non smoking room for about 4 years and it didn't have any issues. It sounds fantastic with capacity of controlling the most demanding low-sensitivity speakers. It is a fully balanced power amplifier with output power 2 x 250 W / 8 Ohm2 x 400 W / 4 Ohm.The reason I am selling the amp is a simple upgrade to another amplifier class A.I have its original box and manual.

  6. I also visited the show, but on Sunday and I also noticed that I'm very interested in sounding of Audio Note's room at the event. Even my wife said she is impressed with it very realistic, soft and colourful sound. I didn't want to even leave the room as it was a very good session.
  7. Any thoughts about Audio Note preamps?
  8. Thank you for the clarification. Also will consider solid preamp into tube amp combo.
  9. So it must be equal? What if it's more?
  10. What if the output impedance of the tube preamp less than the 10X equivalent. I mean if the output is 500 ohms, but the amp input is 15000.
  11. My budget is around $8000 for both and looking for used gears. I also thought to give a try to keep the Primare and find the right tube preamp for it, but don't know actually what preamp will match. Would be excellent to find someone who could help by trying it in my setup.
  12. It might be a very beautiful combo, but also costly as my budget is about $8000 for both.
  13. Hi all. I am about to think of an upgrate of my system. Not the whole setup, but two main components, my preamp which is Marantz AV7701 and solid state Primare A32. I have recently changed turntable and phono stage, so now it is the right time for the rest half of my system to be changed. I have never had a tube preamp or power amp or anything, but I would like to start from a combo with a tube and solid state power amp and the tube preamp is considered to have XLR inputs. My speakers are Cremonas M and I listen to mostly vinyl records. I would be very appreciating to you if any of you could advise me what a possible combo might be worth replacing of what I have got. I was looking for McIntosh gears, but couldn't find anything here. Thanks
  14. Thanks for the comment, Cafad. I am listening to many kinds of music, but all of them instrumental with vocals. I am very much a fan of blues, country, jazz someimes, but I am definately a fan of Pink FLoyd and Roger Waters. I would say Progressive Rock is beloved. Interesting as I would not say Cremona M sounding warm, but again it is just about personal taste.
  15. Thanks, Cafad. Unfortunately your are far away. From all of us as I can see you have an experience with KWI200. That is why I would like to ask you if you could tell me your personal thinking of how it might sound in my system? It is a Kuzma turntable with Miyajima Takumi cartridge. My phono stage is Audia Flight and speakers are Cremona M.
