    Default Visit to mikriks

    I went to mikriks gaff recently to catch up and listen to some tunes on his kit .Mik has some interesting kit at the mo.He has a Prometheus tvc as a volume control running into a Yaquin ms12b pre amp with a built in phono going into a radford sta15 mk3 power amp.He's using a pioneer direct drive deck model escapes me Mick's also using a vintage pioneer er420 receiver and all those loverly tunes come out through his apogee centaur speakers these are ribbon speakers with high sensitivity and 6 ohm impedance in his sweet spot they are sublime.He has his listening chair facing away from the speakers and this works really well.Here are some pics to drool over

    G-almighty -thought that was Trumps ugly sister ,was going to ask for early warning so I got a good head start,daren't ask what the gloves are for!.Jest apart,my t/t is a Pioneer pl-630 with a Technics 207c mm[soon to be replaced] feeding into the Yaqin ms-12b used as a phono stage Volume pot set to max effectively removing it from the signal path ,the o/p is then fed to the tvc which is better than the stock vol pot on the yaqin.

    Yeah Mick the volume pots on the tvc are miles better than those Chinese yaquin the chinese tend to do volume on or volume off not much attenuation

    Can't see any benefit in having a TVC and volume pot in the signal path.
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    Yaqin is basically used as a phono stage,as its vol control is set to max it is effectively out of the signal path therefore the tvc is used for vol .May or may not be ideal but is temporary and it works. Mick
