I enjoyed reading your experience very much. It has been a long while someone willing to take the time and deliver such comprehensive report. I can feel your joy from the writeup. The cigar picture really says it all!
What a surprise here! An ethernet cable elates everyone in CNY. I will receive mine next week.
Kahw, you are the one who set up Red Sparrow for PT at AE with perfect Azimuth guided by computer？Jlam told me you worked until 4 am in the morning!
Red Sparrow/Blue Dragon,
My impression is the following:
1. Sonority delivers the clearness
2. Serenity delivers the depth
3. Sound stage delivers the actions
4. Tranient delivers the agility
5. Instrument delivers the lyricism
6. Vocal delivers …
i have to agree Blue dragon changes my perspective on analog. It goes beyond audiophile jargon, and Lyra comes to mind as it aces all audiophile attributes. The BD is about wholesomeness and openness never experiences by any cartridge before in my…
My vote principle more from breakthrough in technology and the shock factor with equal weighting. Shock means beyond my expectation. My expectation is formed by my own experiences of the brand and my conversation of the designer.

I basically agree with your observations.
PT lately recommends me to experience the AKIRA animation soundtrack. It is a LP with great sound effects. Playing it through the Takumi MC One is very direct and explosive. Stage is very wide. I am no…
Chuck and all,
I applied two more Meda ground to server and transport with great results, especially the transport. One ground cable is for the DAC. I agree not to use two on the dac.
Biggest difference occurred to my system is however the pow…
Göbel Statement and Skogrand Beethoven are both no brainer. Vetere is the Best Buy. Statement excels is staging, dynamic, scale and energy - very apparent in larger scale music. Beethoven is very natural in vocal rendition. I have them all.
Have you shipped Golden reference phono to PT?
I have some questions on pricing.
Since the PSU is to be shared amongst PC, Pre and Phono, that means I have to buy the PSU and the Pre or the phono first. Say, if I buy the golden reference p…

He is the sole seller of Synaestec and is responsible for all marketing and technical explanation. He also has his own website in the making.
Your MC One phono is one hell of a masterpiece too! I have one too playing in my den. It is very high resolution and yet emotional. For your information, I have 3 systems here. Practically, I have purchased mostly AE stuff. I don't like to…
I am a big fan of your work. Let's talk something else, meaningless to talk over something that you can't listen to my system. My friend who is a big fan of Boulder just came over to listen to my complete suite of your electronics. He was tot…
I enjoy the discussion here very much. I certainly don't have any credentials to challenge you. It is not my chatacter anyway. Regardless of true physics and science here, I will continue to collect tube electronics because this is a persona…
I am well over 60 years old. In my opinion, this hobby need not to be a zero sum game. I have whole stack of trinity but I also have many tube phono, pre and power amps. I am a collector. I appreciate the strength of different designers for as long…
The Troy Elite is truly supreme. I don't have it until later in the 2nd batch. But to those who attended the Elite demo last Sunday, together with those who are closed to Lincoln of Audio Technique, they all agree it is "otherworldly" creat…
Salute to PT! I am impressed by the way you cradle AE. I dare say almost 95% of other companies I know are doing trading business.
This kind of project is risky, and no one would do something that aren't sure if there is a market for it. At the…
