    I agree. I like the minimalistic design. There's nothing there that does not need to be, but it still looks very appealing and stylish.

    Exactly... Most of the high-end T/Ts you see now need a room of their own to be housed in! It's completely unnecessary. I like T/Ts you can comfortably sit on top of your average equipment rack (or wall shelf).

    Default AlfaGTV's den

    Enjoying the relative cool of the evening with the portable rig on the balcony!
    Roon unfolding+upsampling MQA from Tidal, via the iPad via the USB (camera connection kit) into the Hugo and outputting damned fine music through the Focal Utopias!

    I was quite easily convinced to give her a new home as i really liked what it did in his rig!

    AMG Viella (or V12) with the 12J2 12Ē tone arm and a HRS base.
    While i really liked most things the Orbe SE did, this is a completely different animal.

    I am a very happy bugger!
    I have the Giro and its stunning, the bigger one does the same, but a bit more.
