Re: Toronto Audio Fest 2018

Yes - it's showtime!!! Please do drop by room 450 and have a look at the latest creations from Blue Circle - the BC515 is a superb DAC and the the NSI-G is absolutely mind-blowing! There will also be gear from ATC, Audio Valve, Chord, Kimber Kable, Marten, Melco, Spendor, and Quadraspire.

NSI - the first impressions

Long post, buckle up… I imagine that a number of folks around the forum have heard rumblings of the NSI, Gilbert’s ultimate rendering of an integrated amplifier. I know it was on his radar about 18 months ago when I first heard about it, so I’m guessing the idea was formed considerably before that. ...

Re: TSP

Hi Splityew, I'm going to veer from Uncle Bob's opinion a bit, which I hesitate to do, because we agree on most things - I think the TSP is definitely worth a try with your Moon. He is correct, it may not be for everybody, but the TSP has a knack of adding just a little bit of tube magic without rem...

Re: Long time lurker checking in with a thank you!

Welcome Jake...

If I had posted back in 1996 when I first purchased a BC21/BC22 pre/power combo, I'm guessing the post would have been a lot like this. Welcome to the journey, and enjoy the music!

Re: A New Power Amplifier Prototype

"It sounds good, mon" is likely a bit of an understatement... At first glance, this looks like (and started out as) half of a pair of AG8000 mono block amplifiers. This particular amp was reworked to put out 200 watts as opposed to the standard 140 watts of the regular AG8000. So as Gilbert says, an...

Semi-retirement...

Well, as someone who is eligible to receive a full pension as of today, someone who has worked with you for over 15 years, and someone who has reasonable knowledge of what you have been up to design-wise over the past six months, I can only say: 1. Welcome to the semi-retirement club! 2. I love the ...

NSW power amplifier...

So... I've only had this up and running for a couple of weeks, so a super detailed expose is out of the question as yet, but, I really like this amp. It came out of the box playing well, and I have to say that its level of performance surprised both Gilbert and I. I expected very, very good, but my ...

Thats kind of the same way I feel about the CSD integrated. Class D as I've never heard before. I'll be interested to hear you take on the tube version when you get your ears on it.
