I recently received (& supplied) my first Vida phono stage in the optional black lacquer sleeve. While it passed through I had it photographed which in itself is slightly tricky with a black reflective object.

I'm pleased to learn that this one will be in use at Scalford so visitors to Rm 202 will be able to see & hear it at first hand.

The standard (wood sleeve) Vida remains at 2849. The black lacquer version is 3049. I do have a demo Vida that is available for home trials. If anyone is interested in arranging a loan of this fine sounding device (or indeed any of the other Aurorasound products) please pm me.

That looks lovely, Guy. Much cleaner looking and more modern than the wood-sleeved version, which IMO tries to 'look retro', but fails...

I know how good the Vida is, however, as I've heard it in my system and also Martin T's, and it is unquestionably a top-notch piece of kit. Therefore, I look forward to hearing it again at Scalford.

Do you know what the rest of your proposed system will be, particularly the vinyl front end? :)

Not my system I'm afraid. It's a Wammer known as Baggawire. I think he uses an Acoustic Solid TT and NS1000's so should be interesting anyhow.

Looks much better in that gloss black :).

Ah ok, yes indeed :)
