    Hahahah - I don't think I'll be looking to change it - I don't think you could get a more transparent way of controlling volume. I've had the Vida and the allaerts for a couple years without getting itchy feet. I don't think I'd ever change the Vida or get rid of the cart. Likewise the sp10. I might change my arm in the future and I'd like another amp to do standby duty. Speaker cables will be staying as well. Interconnects are next on the agenda....

    This is from the website:


    It has an input impedance too high to measure, output impedance is a couple ohms, bandwidth is to 60Mhz, slew rate is a couple hundred V/microsecond.
    There are no capacitors or resistors in the signal path. There is no potentiometer in the signal path.
    It uses photo cells to control the volume. It does not use optocouplers.


    These are bold and intriguing claims. I'd love to take a peak inside.

    I have to admit that I'm tempted to take a peek in there but prefer not to know. For all I know there are fairies in there making magic. I've been waiting since November for it to arrive and over that time have been told by the maker to hang in there because it would be worth it in a way I couldn't imagine and to be honest my expectations had waned by the time it finally arrived. But he was right. Whatever is going on inside it has zero effect on the signal, zero. Arthur Salvatore gave it his bolero test, meaning against a direct connection and concluded they were so close that a direct connection was redundant. It's quirky to use - volume is only between 9-1 o'clock but it has good control over that short travel which earlier models didn't. The balance is also unconventional. But it works - it not only removes a faint veil, it lifts a bloody quilt!

    In situ, complete with fingerprints...



    A very anonymous looking box of trickery... Rosewood sleeve should be ready by Tuesday and laser etched fascia in a week or so - have some beautiful brown mottled Bakelite knobs that will be used. Yes - I like my HiFi to look nice.
