  1. Brilliant, that’s nice and clear, thanks a bunch Mauro!
  2. Hey all, I have a Hegel H190 which comes with a very high damping factor, and I’m told helps it reign in bass woof and provide a little extra low end control. Assuming that’s right, my question is, does this mean it’s going to be better paired with speakers with bigger, bolder bass? Or will it also play with ones that have a tighter low-end response? I guess I’m just a little confused about damping factor, it’s always advertised as a positive, but everything comes at a cost
  3. Further information: I purchased this to temporarily replace my Schiit Mjolnir when it's switch broke and had to be returned to California for repair. It's a brilliant little unit, basically just a piece of glass it's that transparent. I had thought of keeping it, but I don't really have need of a second HPA and I'm looking to buy a new turntable.

  4. For what it’s worth, I’ve been listening through H800s’s and LCD-X’s (which are both excellent in their own ways) for a while, but earlier this year picked up an Ironwood Verité Open from ZMF and it’s just been a revelation. They feel like I they have the spaciousness of the HD800’s but without severing the connective tissue, and there’s an organic warmth that doesn’t overwhelm anything. if you were thinking of expanding to something more analytical (not my favourite descriptive word, but I’m having a lazy day) in the future, a pair of Verité’s would provide a wonderful, more relaxed
  5. Damn practicality always getting in the way of progress. Maybe sit the LP underneath a flat bottomed water tank and turn on the circulator for a few hours? I don't know why, but I seem committed to getting out from underneath the boot of "big vinyl-flattening".
  6. Here’s a thought, maybe a touch on the mad scientist side, has anyone vacuum sealed a record in a food vacbag and heated it with a sous vide immersion circulator to 54C - then popped it under something heavy and flat to set? This would in theory keep temperature pretty precise and safe, and the vacbag will protect the grooves. But like I say, might be bit mad scientist.
  7. Hey all, I’ve (re)started in the audio world recently with headphones and digital audio, and now i’m lookup to step up my vinyl game with some Buchardt s400’s. I’d be really keen if someone had some amp suggestions to go with it. thanks, tom.
