    did you try your passive with the new Radford?

    I did Paul. At least I tried it with another Radford. It was really quite good, very low noise and zero cross-talk thanks to the earthing arrangement, but I just preferred the presentation that a really good active gave so sold the passive. I had a few people express interest in buying the RFC passive, but haven't really pushed the idea as very very busy with loudspeaker and cable work, so have very little time in honesty to pursue further.

    I'll have TRON Seven linestage in the system next week and I have heard this with the TRON Convergence phono stage and my speakers. The match is really quite excellent, although some attenuation will be required for matching the input sensitivity of the Radford.

    What can I say about the Radford except that it is undoubtedly the very best match with DC's I've yet heard.

    Excellent and much appreciated, Alan. It's just that for those of us who weren't there, reading a bunch of words is just a bit 'meh', without some pics to bring it all together and make the whole thing more interesting

    As I've said before with these local get togethers, take it as a prerequisite that pics of the gear listened to, and the room where it all happened in, is pretty much mandatory!

    The answer Marco, is that you'll have to visit yourself and bring your camera

    The set up will be finalised in a week or so, and the results should be worthwhile
