    I tried running the Ayre pre into the pre-in on the Triode and the results were interesting but to be honest, I much preferred running the Triode as an integrated amp. The sound was a bit wider and cleaner but I lost the life and bounce in the sound.

    Outstanding set up Ian and congrats on the new CD player. The YBA is one of the finest players I've ever heard (albeit in an all YBA Passion system); I look forward to reading your impressions of it.

    Default Triode TRV-845se

    Nice Triode TRV-845se. I've been toying with the idea of those or their KT88 monos. Are you able to compare them with any other power amps?

    This is the only Triode amp that I've heard; they're quite rare in Europe. I have listened to a number of other valve power amps in the last year and I definitely have a preference for 845s and 211s with big transformers. I like the extra power and drive that they give to a system over others like 300B.

    How do you find the DDDAC compares to the Meitner?

    Thanks

    To my tastes, the DDDAC in this trim is better than the Schiit Yggdrasil that I tried a few weeks ago but not even close to the Meitner.

    Having said that, I did hear a similar DDDAC to mine with beaglebone black inside streaming via i2s and that was a lot closer to the Meitner.

    I had an EMM Labs CDP in for a bit (Meitner design). Best solid state digital I ever heard, if that helps Steve.
