Nothing fancy mate. Dayton ultimaxx UN18 subs in Marty cube cabs and a Crown XLS 2002 amp.

Crossed over at 80hz atm.

Silly question YM did you ever try your Wilson Subs with the TADs?

The big TAD’s have decided to get naked for me tonight, mmmm mmmm.

New arm and cart up and running. Outstanding service from @SHF Staff and @Krispy Audio  

To say I’m highly impressed by these @SGR Audio speakers is a chronic understatement. Sound stage, imaging, bass, mids and highs are to die for. The packaging for these speakers surpasses th

There is only 1 Wilson sub.

It hasn’t been used since I first got the Ref 1’s.

Holy jumping catfish!

Or, even more to the point, as one of my nieces put it, more colourfully, Holy snapping ducksh*t!

Bahahahaha hilarious!

Will be interesting to see how much if at all the new edition is as an upgrade from the old.

Buying without a demo Is always a risk, in saying that it’s what I’ve mostly done whilst free falling down this rabbit hole.

That's an awful lot of moolah riding on a hunch/wish of better things, but I know what you mean. In this day and age getting out and spending time doing an audition is perilous at best, plus, when you get to this level of quality it's impossible to meaningfully do an audition unless they bring it to you and leave you alone with it for at least a month. And that's not going to happen, is it? There's just not enough dealers out there any more to allow for that to happen.

I suppose the upside is that, in many cases, the dealer is also the importer, so the chance of getting a deal where the buyer gets a decent discount while the business still gets a margin that ensures their longevity is pretty good. Either that, or like at least one big name, they offer value added services like specialist installation around which the customer and the business can both feel that the deal is a good one.

The Australian Gryphon dealer/importer won’t cut a deal, lost cause even asking.

That's how Joe stays in business. I wonder if he has put in an order for a custom built planet from the forges of Magrathea?

Funny you should say that because I know so many people who will never go back to him again and when I say so many I don’t mean like 5 or 6, think many more.

What I’m also looking forward to is using the Esoteric C-03x with the SGR’s when the new pre is delivered.  👌🏻

You have so much lovely gear. Are the sgr's replacing your TADs?

No way! They are used as a high end sound bar in the family room.

Currently being driven by just a Auralec Vega via toslink from the tv, the Esoteric will be a MASSIVE upgrade for this system.

Not long now. Been away from home for over 8 weeks. Can’t wait to see my little man and girl. 

Overnight in Adelaide then home to open (belated) birthday present to myself.

If you were in Adelaide, you should have let us know.

 

I'm sure there would have been an SNAer who would have been happy to catch up for an ale or three.

 

Enjoy getting back home to see the family and the new toy!

 

Cheers

Well it certainly is an object of great beauty. 
Photos don’t do it justice.

Off the charts build quality.

How are  you finding  the pairing of Pandora with Vitus and the Krell? Pandora may not be an absolute  detail monster but sure does present in a  sweet ,lush , natural sound when I owned it...hopefully what you were chasing.

It’s certainly different to the Esoteric.

Im undecided what I think at the moment.

Will wait until I use the legato legacy phonostage Before casting judgement.

Yes it would be very  different to Esoteric  .......being class A based  it takes a while to get to optimum sound. I enjoyed my time with it when paired to Mephisto but as I said it will not be a detail monster and its laid back lush presentation is not to everyone's taste.

Have you tried input match level in menu yet? Personally I don’t like 0db at all. Often I do +1 or 2 dB and find it sounds much better.

Same here Joe, when I put on Danzig's Little Whip it has to be loud, real loud.

Mate tbh I’ve listened to it twice.

Probably hard to believe but not high on the list of priorities at the moment.

Just knowing that it's there is enough, hey?
