    I have been enjoying the amplifiers for a couple of weeks now and to say I am pleased is a huge understatement. Usually when I compare components I would listen for the improvements and differences in presentation but with these it is not even comparable to what Im used to or even anything I have heard before. It is a case of 'what amplifiers'? they do not sound like Hifi in a traditional sense. The sound is unlike recorded playback but more like studio monitoring or a live performance in my listening room. The textures, dynamics, emotion and so much more is akin to being there with the performer, so in comparison to anything I have heard its more real and enjoyable than ever. In the realm of hifi I can understand what improvements there are in terms of control, dynamics, pace, texture and detail on all points I am completely satisfied with the abilities of these amplifiers. I really can not find any room for improvement other than from my accompanying components will now need to be fine tuned and a new cartridge has been installed with a new phono stage to complete the system at a level I feel I could never of achieved with conventional options available on the market and certainly within my budget. Some friends have also heard them and the response has been nothing short of WOW, they have shared my feelings, in the fact they just dont sound like hifi.

    My system consists of DIY F5 V3 TURBO monoblocks, Wilson Benesch Discovery speakers, Pioneer PLC 590 turntable with Pioneer PA5000 tonearm and Supex 900 MC super cartridge, Musical Fidelity M6 Encore connect preamp and streamer, Trichord Dino mk3 with NCPSU, Puritan mains conditioner for source, James Audio mains conditioner for power amps, Audioquest NRG10 mains leads throughout, QED Signiture interconnects and QED Supremus speaker cables.

    Sorry for quoting myself same progress on that front
    The dude that sells Gekko cables had same surplus cable on sale on Ebay
    Martin and I got 4 meters each at 12 meter

    I put it on my system a few days ago whit same phono Plugs and have just got a text phone / phone call from Martin he finished his
    You can scrap the QED Signature cables from Martin list of toy's and the 2 meters spotfire cable I have may came up for sale
    I just have to wait to get same super duper KLE phono plugs to finish off mine


    Do not bother to look at Ebay the cable is not longer listed I got another 10 meters of it before Martin beat me to it
    We have a cable guru on AOS and PM have been sent
    One practically can scrap the Diy cables from my list of things to do

    I was wondering the other day about this tread and the title
    "The Bug is back" blipping right spot on and now I can confirm it is contagious...

    One is going to loose a friend if he call to talk about is FiFI at 12 AM (PM for same)
    I just finished a Night shift of a 72 hour week F.F.S.
