    Glen usualy responds to emails rather than by phone.
    Hope that helps.

    All sorted now, his reply went in my spam folder for some reason.

    Thanks for the replies.

    All going well, should hopefully have the 25RS model in 2-3 weeks

    Been using the Micro 25 for about 8 years now, which i've been very happy with. Not sure what to expect from the 25RS but i'm sure it will be worth it!

    I'm thinking that upgrading to the RS model, this will probably be my last pre amp and so am wondering if it's worthwhile upgrading the volume pots whilst I'm at it, or just leave as standard? Looking about it seems Dact and Khozmo are well regarded.

    I will of course get Glens opinion on the matter when I can but would like to hear from anyone who has gone down this route and what benefits,or otherwise you had.

    Cheers.

    I think Glenn is shielding - when I spoke with him a few weeks ago he told me he isn't going out but he was not unwell. It took him over a week to respond to my Happy Christmas email but as always he got back.

    Anyway, when I got the full monty upgrade to 25 RSLS line stage spec he automatically swapped out the old volume pots - I didn't specify which ones to put in just went with the flow. I have to say the upgrade to RSLS line stage is a huge improvement in dynamics, bass extension/control and "musicality" Defo the end of the road for me in terms of amplifiers.

    Always a little further

    Hi Stephen, you know what, it never occurred to me he would be shielding, bizarrely. I'm in no rush to get things done, so as long as he stays safe, that's the main thing.

    That's interesting he automatically upgraded the pots anyway. Did you have the 25 or 25R beforehand? Sounds like you've got a top notch pre with the improvements I'm looking for. What's the rest of your kit out of interest?

    Looks like he's out of transformers. I wanted my pre-amped modded and will have to wait until new supplies arrived.

    Oh really, well that's a shame. Hopefully he doesn't have to wait too long. Sounds like everyone is having lockdown upgrades and keeping him busy!
