I hope we can get together when I'm in the PNW this August.
Thanks for the vote of confidence SL100. It means a lot to me.
Those are beautiful. May they bring you many hours of wonderful music.
No problemo Mark!, just trying to be a good AK'r and help a fella out with some words of encouragement. I'm not the kinda guy who gets jelly or anything like that.....
I hope to get two pairs, my MX-1000 is just waiting for them !
Massive set-up. Congratulations on the NS2000.
The NS-2000's are wonderful!
Listening to some Leonard Cohen on CD - transport is an Esoteric P-2 & DAC is a dCS Debussy.
The dynamics are so good that a cow jumped out of its skin in fright.
I will surely have to hear that dac. I have been interested in purchasing a very good dac. I have a cx-1000 along with a number of high-end components of yesteryear and today. I'm now curious as to how much better a 10,000 dollar dac could be.
Nice, I'm thinking about picking up either a CX-1000 or C-85 to go with my M-85. Do you use the phono in the CX-1000?
I notice your speakers are quite far from the wall - is this a deliberate thing for sound preferences - or is this just the nature of your room?
My preference is to have the speakers several feet from walls. It also works well with the dimensions of the room and the location of my listening spot.
the C-85 is a nice pre...it has the loudness control. I had one and a C-80 before and a CX-800 too.
The CX-800 is also nice because it has the remote and still has the loudness control. Tht said, CX-1000 is in another league....
I am working on rebuilding my C-1, then I will see how the CX-1000 fares against some real competition teaser...I know what Mark will say
I know The Truth about what Mark would say.
then you get that bass to shake those kidney stones
What..the CX-1000 is no slouch..I tell ya, mine broke down then it fixed itself after a while (signs it needs to see the doctor) man, did I miss that preamp
wait, I do not see the infinities in the room...are the NS-2000 that good?
There has been a pair of the NS-2000s on the PHX CL for a while now ...
That said, all of my Yammie preamps (even the mighty CX-10000) are sidelined in favor of the best sounding line stage I've heard, a Horn Shoppe "The Truth".
