Re: BC1002-ML stereo power amplifier

We should have foreseen this and it's very good news. We know that Gilbert believes in the greater control he can achieve as a designer with integrateds than with separates, but there are folks out there with good preamps (107, NSC) who will find this a true blessing. The 002i EPS is so fine a piece...

002i with EPS Re-visited

Confession: As my 002i has settled in, I find I am playing it all of the time with the EPS, as is my first 002i customer. On truly critical speakers, like my new Jean Marie Reynaud Abscissa Jubilees, the body, mid-range clarity, and beauty of the 002i - EPS are extraordinary. As good as the OO2i alo...

Gilbert and the Preamp

I love this. It tells us a lot why you are the unique person you are.

Edit

Can't figure out how to edit my post. Just want to correct subject line to 002I.

Now that the formal Spiel on the BC 001i is up....

Here's my initial report, adapted from my website: My first impression of the 002i was that it has a beautiful sound, more noticeably beautiful than its big brother, the 022I. It is less robust, lighter, which creates a sense of greater subtlety, more delicacy. It is a trifle (pleasantly) indulgent....

BC 6....

BC 6, right. Oh well, at least I remember the names of old girlfriends correctly. A lovely, large, heavy, hot running (Class A) hybrid. Good stuff, though I expect it wouldn't stand up to my O22i any more than I expect my BC 2.1 would stand up to my NSL. Aural memory is tricky and undependable.

002i

Only thing missing from your list of favorites, I think, is the BC26, which you spoke to me about a day or so ago and which I've heard you rave about before. When I heard it many years ago, it really pleased me. If I'm wrong, then I'd better revise what I wrote on my website! I remember that some re...

ELD BD

Following up my own note above, the longer I listen to the ELD BD on the little Reynauds, the better it gets. The ELD is an easy amp to underrate. It sounds distinctly different from the O22i, so if you're looking at integrateds, don't assume anything, try 'em both.

Just for fun this a.m. I put my ELD BD into a system with JMR Bliss Silvers. I hadn't listened to that combo in quite a while and audio memory can fade. I am always surprised at how good GY's Class D stuff sounds and even with the modest ELD I was again surprised. I put in an NOS RCA 5922 (6SN7 vari...

Mark, Have you heard the O22i and if so, would you willing to do a comparison? They both have their own virtues but I'd love to hear someone other than myself attempt to characterize them. I don't know what your preamp is so of course that would play into this...Actuallly, I guess the more logical c...
