    Epic thread. No more to say because it would involve heavy drooling.

    emergency rescue, is quite unlikely.

    helicopters, are only good / functional to just under 15,000 feet ...

    Very nice setup. I've been noodling a similar approach for my TADs. Any particular reason you are not running balanced? I may be wrong, but you may find a further increase in performance.

    In the process of negotiation on a Pass pre. If that fails maybe a bryston, then go full balance. Any other pre amp suggestions?

    The rear wall is 40 ft away, under damped currently.

    Show us your kit on the TAD.

    What about a dCS Delius DAC with integrated volume? I have owned one, and it sounds absolutely great.

    In my opinion and experience , neither the Pass or the Bryston would leave you wanting... there is very little between them sonically !

    Having spent a few hours with Viva today I can honestly say ,besides being a perfect gent and scholar ,he is indeed bitten by the bug and a full card carrying member of this wonderful JBL obsession we all share .

    my understanding is that using 'balanced' connections and circuits, when not using a fully balanced circuit, is more about noise suppression than hi-fidelity potential...

    Since you asked, my TADs are detailed elsewhere on this forum, but here's a summary: TD-4003, TH-4003 resin clones, TD-1601c and (currently) JBL 2235. The TADs are connected to a TN-4 800Hz crossover and powered by an Air Tight ATM-2. The JBL is powered active below 100Hz by a Krell KSA 300s. Driving it all is a Pass Labs XP-20 preamp.

    Wouldn't less noise equal higher fidelity?

    Sure, but if your system is already quieter than your listening room, it won't make any difference.

    Spent a great morning with Rich.

    I thought I liked to tinkle, and he showed me how he made his own horns !

    He can certainly describe his configuration better than I, so I will leave it to him with space below.

    The sound was stunning, the warmest I have heard from an SS amp.

    I hope my L300 here took you back in time to when you first heard them at 18 !

    The mold.
    He said he can make the horns for others, I am tempted.
