First question, should I get a tube cd player or a tube pre next? Recommendations?.

Well here is another Apple vs Orange thing!
I say CD Player and for the money a jolida mod 2 - it will make your biggest punch for the buck over Pre-amp but then your going to want that warm rich mid-range that adding the pre will bring! again to me I say Tube CD first but that is me cause it will add tons to your sound field and really everything else will be tighter smoother and more open sounding!!! (THEN) you will want the pre and add to the warmth of the mid-range. AWESOME to see where your headed - JUST AWESOME! =D> =D> =D>


Thanks for the input....

Being shipped tomorrow. Hopefully be here wednesday when I get off work.

You should know this!!

My "little" VTL

I about pulled a hernia unpacking it. It definitely feels a lot heavier than stated.

Got all the tubes in. Just need to get it in the stand. Will perform the biasing tomorrow and off we go. \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

I've got a lot work I'm doing today so I can't really do any critical listening at the moment but I am listening as I work.

I did sit down and listen to about 6 songs or so just to hear the initial impression and I was listening in triode mode 75wpc. I will try and provide more info later but for right now.......
