  1. Hi Marco, hope you are well. We have finally got our first batch of valve amps ready for sale. It's been a nightmare getting this far and we missed our aimed for price point but only just. Do you fancy having a try out of one? I can send one up to you, you can play with it for a week or two and then I can get Parcelforce to come and get it back.
    Let me know via pm if you are interested.
    All the best,

    Thank you for informations. i go too Drawing board soon !
  5. Hi Richard,

    Thanks for your message. Glad you're enjoying your DAS-R1. Unfortunately I don't know the answer to your question.

    What I'd advise you do is post a thread in 'The Drawing Board' section of the forum, and ask that question, as there are people there who will be able to help.

    If no-one answers, which I doubt, then send a private message to a guy called 'UV101', as he will definitely know.

    As an aside, however, you will not be able to send PMs until you've made a minimum of five posts on the forum, therefore what I suggest you do is pop into the Welcome area, and introduce yourself, telling people what system you've got and what music you like. Post a few replies there and on your thread in the DIY room, and then you'll be able to PM 'UV101'.

    Hope this helps - and good luck!

    Hello Marco, i am Richard. I Have the fantastic Sony DAsr1 too. i have uprgaded my DAC. I have replaced the last black Soshin Capacitor with a MKP Sa cap Red series. i have replaced the Ad 712 Op amp by a BB Op2134. More precise and open space; I have upgraded the capacitors around the TDA 1541 with Mkp Rodenstein. They are better. I have a question for you. i want to replace the Op amp I/V conversion stage. you say Lm49710 in a post but I've seen in others post LM49720? One is stereo, one is mono. what is the truth? Mark of Audiocom not answered me. Sorry if I bothering you with my question but I'm that close to nirvana with this last modification ... Sorry for my bad english...

    Dear Marco,
    I am new to the forum and ended up here while searching the web for info on Croft Acoustics. I have a small stereo set up in my living room with a pair of B&W CM5, an Oppo BD83 + DAC and my TT Rega P3-24 (modded) and was looking for a new integrated amp.
    Glenn Croft's name came up and I am about to receive a piece of kit from Croft's local distributor here in Brazil.
    The info I've read so far in here has been vast and amazing as Croft is not really a popular name in Brazil. I wanted to run away from the names we see most here - Rotel, Marantz, Cambridge, Primare, MBLs, etc - and go for something different. I am a classical music lover and was looking for something that would give me the detail I was looking for. I must confess I loved the simplicity of the Croft's - and the prices. Must be the best bargain of the world of Hi-Fi
    I am looking forward to hours of pleasure with my new Croft and will post here as soon as the kit arrives.
    Warm regards, Claudia
