Seems many moons since I wrote about my 1000X and the recap and changes made but I just had to say that it's still here and sounding great! A lot of my listening is early morning or late night which obviously necessitates low volume listening and here it's absolutely brilliant. Low level detail and clarity are superb and far better than anything else I've ever owned, in some ways it reminds me of an original A&R A60 that I owned for many years, but even better sounding. And that's across all inputs. A few months ago I replaced the SR-212 turntable with a Technics SL-7 expecting a slight improvement in sound quality but wanting the full auto convenience really, the 1000X phono stage clearly and most definitely showed a much better turntable was connected which really surprised me. Now call me daft, stupid or easily pleased but I'm convinced that in the intervening months since completing the work on it, this 1000X keeps sounding better and better across all inputs, tuner included. Is it possible that I'm hearing this or an I delusional, is it some kind of extended burn in or magic even? Sansui magic? All I do know is that I've bought more lp's and cd's in those months than for a long time and the SC-3300 cassette deck has made many off air recordings.
