I know someone who would totally dig that system -
I have just realized,,,, need more Yamaha!
Yes, that would be me
Luv Darth Vader black Yamaha gear
Yes indeed! My Darthy B-1 as I type.
Sonically simply superb IMHO.
here is a pic of my amps
Grills off today...
I added carpet spikes last night and drums went from "nice and punchy" to full on artillery fire. I can't believe I hadn't tried this tweak sooner. Once I get my hands on a YDS-8 record weight and some stainless or brushed aluminum feet then I'll have completed the "Vader" look.
Kind of a teaser pic but maybe interesting to the guys who like the integrated amps.
The inside of my A-950 which is the Japan only version of the A-1000 (currently only two in the hands of AK'rs as far as I know).
On the bench...Fixing to reassemble the second channel.
I keep an AX-400u and 900u as backups. The 900u has the better phono but both have nice line in's.
I always knew my B-1 was pretty hot stuff!
you should get one for every room in the winter
I accept your offer!
I have five in stock right now. How many do you need
I need all 5 ... but not to be greedy like some people around here, 4 will do just fine.
Greedy or addict, donno what's worse...those shameless out of controll people
So the phono load knob fell off of my C-2x (it really works and I tweak it constantly...) so I decided to put the C-4 in it's place to see how it gets along with the B-2x.
While it doesn't have the bass control/slam of the C-2x, the top end control is quite nice and I think its default load impedance may work better with the MC-1x cart than the C-2x does. I really love how the C-4 handles vocals, it's a sweet sound.
Liked the warmth of the C-4 but the muddiness in the low end had me missing the C-2x...but before I restore it to its rightful throne, I decided to swap in my CX-1.
I think the bass is still deeper with the C-2x but the CX-1 has a near equivalent punch and similarly strong image with superb top end clarity that borders on clinical. The interesting thing about the C-4 was how it seemed to give an added level of analog to CD's and the sound of guitars ringing out was so warm and natural. But the overall presentation was just not as clean as the C-2x or CX-1 so it makes me think it's overdue for a strategic recap. It also makes me wonder if it partially comes down to chassis bracing for which the C-4 would also fall short by comparison.
