    Replaced my Schiit Freya that I really enjoyed but I needed a tape loop.

    Currently going to play background music for the next 48 hours before making any judgement.

    My current set up:

    Jolida Fusion
    Rega P2 (Denon DL110 Cartridge) into a highly modified Jolida JD-9
    Pioneer RT 707 spinning tapes.
    Schiit Bifrost handing the DAC duties
    Pioneer Spec 2 - recently recapped
    Scansonic MB-1 speakers.

    REL S/2 sub about to be introduced in the the mix.

    Everything here bought used or dealer closeouts. Except for the Fusion Pre.

    Pictures and my review later this week.

    Looking forward to your views on the pre.:lurk: There are NOT a lot of Jolida users on these Forums:( I have the Fusion in Black bought it used from Upscale Audio and I also have the Jolida JD5T pre. Using JD5T to control the subs in my room. Nice to have remote bass subs. I did take out those nasty stock tubes and installed some new reissue Mullards on the Fusion. For the price its a nice tubed preamp for the money. Im lazy and wanted remote volume control. and it had to be a tube amp and not break the bank. Just like your needs I also needed a fixed output for my tape decks:) I have the Prima Luna Prologue 5 for one of the power amps, and a Shuguang I25 for the other power amp. Sounds great in my room and am pretty happy at the moment. :bigok:
