The brain, eyes and ears are still recovering from the sensory overload but the "fever" is still strong.

jasper, daiwok is right, it's too late to get out! Like any respectable crime family, apart from monthly kickbacks from your medical practice, we also expect you to meet your weekly quota of acquiring a turntable ( or loudspeakers of reasonable size). This is not a drill, should you have any problem locating the gear, icefox and daiwok are on watch 24/7 and will deliver the goods promptly. Better start preparing your spouse on accepting this inevitable reality. Forget about it!  
 
ps: don't make us send our wise guys after you.

Monthly kickback, I will arrange that with Daiwok.  
 
Just before i left I have been told to start searching for this Australian made vintage broadcast station turntables on my return so i think some of the guys are well versed in enforcing this asset acquisition business..:)

p/s- your enforcers look far too friendly.

Hi 1PK,  
 
Just want to say a big thanks to all for the warm hospitality and the wonderful experience that only 1PK can serve up over the last few days.  
 
My body, right arm and shoulder are still sore from the sunday night badminton game( truth be known, i nearly passed out in the stadium toilet after the first game but i wasn't too concerned by that stage ) and lugging 20 kgs of new records around Mong Kok on monday evening.  
 
The brain, eyes and ears are still recovering from the sensory overload but the "fever" is still strong. I came home happy having experienced some truly wonderful and fascinating collection of systems. My hi-fi journey is much the richer for that short few days. You guys have a pretty unique thing going at 1PK and thanks for allowing an outsider a short glimpse into your hifi world.  
 
If any of you ever travel to Downunder in the future, please don't hesitate to contact me.  
 
Happy listening,  
jasper

回覆 (545): The Rogue Ares Challenge
 
 
Morning gentlemen,  
 
Received a generous offer from Hit Audio HK inviting us to test drive their new Rogue Ares phono-amp launched recently. It's an all tube design (12AU7/12AX7) with 3 gain settings (40dB/55dB/64dB), user friendly for most cartridges. The thing weights about 20 lbs and comes with a separate power supply. In view of this being a fun trial, think they also wanted some feed back from PR1 on this new phono. So with all the analog sparkles flying around, should anyone wishes to take on this assignment, please drop me a note. May the force be with you!

回覆 (543): Krell Lat-1
 
 
起唔起到货?  
_______________________________________________________________________  
 
 
Better than expected, was my first one-on-one with the Lat-1, super-dubber clean sound! Though it's 91 dB, but sounded like no power is too big for it (apparently, the 1000 watts Krell MRA is match made in heaven), I reckon tubes may bring more drama in the music. The construction is aircraft grade and impressive (made in aluminum), also pretty small footprint considering it weights around 260 lbs each. On that afternoon, we used an Orpheus pre-amp, Studer CDP + 650 watts Dyna Pro-amp for the task, not at all convinced it was the best match. If the poor thing has to be judged from that day - narrow sound stage (nothing like the Maggie 3.6) and the Revel Salon (or even my F-30) will demolish it in dynamics and extension, all at a fraction of the cost. The best part was the sound from the violin on Accardo's Gavotte en Rondeau, absolutely supremo!! At par with the Sonus Faber Guarneri Memento. More later....

icefox,  
 
Forget about this. As a CDP, or transport, this is crap. I bought one of this too and it is now in my son's bedroom as a DVD player only; i.e. idling doing nothing as all my sons are now in UK.

Old review on PSB Alpha SubSonic 5  
 
Stereophile Recommended Component and the recipient of two Hi-Fi Grand Prix awards, the Alpha SubSonic 5 delivers even better performance at no increase in price.The SubSonic 5 has lots of gut impact, and is up to demanding use in living rooms of normal size. It is within 3 dB (plus or minus) from its top frequency of 150 Hz down to 28 Hz, with a bass cut-off point (-10 dB) of 25 Hz. Its 10-inch driver with poly-coated fiber cone is pushed by its 65W continuous/110W dynamic/220W dynamic peak amplifier to levels that probably will more than satisfy a good number of (maybe most) present subwoofer users.

小Q,  
 
小紅 is not that kind of a gal. She goes down to only about 60 Hz (convincingly), should be left as that. The factory Usher SW looks more like an afterthought and a desperate attempt to cash in on the success of the S520. If "low level cues" is absolutely mandatory for 小紅, apart from changing speakers, the USD $500 PSB Alpha SubSonic 5 (the original MK 1, not the 5i) be my one and only choice (Stereophile VOL24 #10). They share uncanny characteristics both in performance and price. More effort should be spent on speaker stands instead.

_____________________________________________  
 
Heard these speakers in several occasions before at the old VTL dealer in Central, put me to sleep every time. We were using pair of VTL Siegfried mono (around 400 watts I think?) mono for power. Sorry, not much of an impression.

Would this do justice to your perfect studio? This probably would give big sound with your SE tube amps.
