    Very good.
    Slightly brighter than the koetsu but not harsh, I can easily see me using it a lot.

    Agreed. It almost has, Dare I say, A CD sound to it. Saying that it doesn't have the harshness of CD so I can play much louder. It Tracks really well in my ClearAudio Unify arm. I don't play much vinyl anymore but I go to car boot sales and buy the odd record, clean it up and then sit back and enjoy :)

    Am a bit bemused here. Are you comparing a h.o. Kiseki with a Koetsu?

    Kiseki has been recommended by Mark of this parish, but I thought they were all l.o. cart's and I think they share some history with Koetsu. All Koetsus are low output, although the Black, Red T and Red K Sig. have much higher outputs at 0.6 mV (but still l.o.).

    Blue Point No.2 (which is what Mark has above) is a Sumiko. :)

    Ta ! Must change those pills (or summat else?). So a h.o. Sumiko sounds a bit like a Koetsu? Well well !:)

    That Sonneteer amp looks great, Gromit.

    Is it me or do you have quite a lot of amps in your collection?

    Here is my little setup (sorry for the poor quality pics, was late at night!)
    Cambridge Audio DacMagic, Naim 72, hicap, 180 powering Kudos Super 20s



    Room not yet finished, thus no curtains or blinds and looking a bit sparse!

    Very nice matching of components. First rate and looks elegant as well.

    What is that rainbow coloured something that appears to be resting atop of you swish colour coordinated work top / surface? I was thinking it might be a section of some exotic fan less cpu cooler coloured and transformed into a work of art or not:)

    nice listening room . I dream of such an uncluttered space .

    Thanks - it's a superb little amp. :)

    I've had quite a lot of amps, but only this one in the collection at present. Another photo of it...

    Wow, that's the most beautiful picture of any Sonneteer product I've seen so far, Gromit! :)
    (Haider should hire you to take future promo-pics of their products)

    I love the clean lines, the symmetry, the sober brushed aluminum fascia, the massive knobs, the build-to-last-a-lifetime feel.
    (apart from the wonderful sound it produces)

    The only product currently still missing is a DAC imho.
    They once had one (Sonneteer Dryden) which was more or less the DAC of the Byron CD-player, but it was/is as rare as hen's teeth.

    Thanks Alco - was just having a brief play around with a new lens this afternoon. :)

    I'd agree re the Campion's quality feel - it's so simple, uncluttered and feels like it'll last a lifetime. Since you mentioned the Dryden a while back I've done some searching the www but can find very, very little info about it.

    My system, please excuse the poor quality photos, done with iphone and tapatalk. And I really need to do something about the cables.... Far too many cables :(

    Would love to get a dedicated listening room and declutter a bit, but this is as good as it gets. Sounds extremely good though and more room than it looks like in the pics.

    REGA Elicit R and JBL L100... great combination!

  20. Clay B

    Clay B pfm Member

    Not an intuitive choice to say the least but when you think about it makes real sense. Combine the warmth and timbre of the Elicit with the punch and dynamics of the JBL.
