    This is a great find. Not as fullsome as the other valve based units but an excellent sounding stage.

    Apparently, dropping in the V5 Burson fills the sound a bit.

    Thank you for the Day out, it was great to take part, as well as have a few hours gassing with Stoyan, we don't get to meet a great deal due to work and the like.
    Stoyan is a forum member, so he can be contacted, I'll tell him to check his notifications. I don't know the forums he visits, they are in his native tongue, I believe.
    The day out for me beyond the social gathering, and it was sociable and very friendly was to assess the DIGNA.
    For me, where I am now, the DIGNA is ideal, It has another 90 hours of performing before it is run in, so I have a great excuse to give the new 845's a blast as well.
    In the field trial it did its thing, it got my attention, it separated the players and allowed a deep uncoloured insight into the soundstage.
    For the outlay I will sleep at night unconcerned.
    I have discovered today, it has a few options to roll valves under its belt.
    E88CC, ECC88, 6DJ8, PCC88, 7DJ8 and 6922 are all compatible.
    So with a V5 and the above, plenty can be done to tune to ones desires.
