Debs - Ray mentioned the possibility of trying a Powerline on his Accurate Radikal. I - very tongue in cheek :D - mentioned SSA, but meant a power cable not an interconnect 8) - and it was just a frivolous comment with a :smt002


That's a relief for Ray then...
as someone pointed out in the blue room; Sarum cables are so good they have the word divorce written all over them! :g-rolleyes:

Meanwhile, to get back on topic, i wonder who's trade-in Radikal it was that Ray is enjoying now?

At times i do wonder who is enjoying my old ARad.... :g-scratch:

Just enjoy your Radikal / Tranq. upgrades for the time being is the best bet IMHO Ray. Already thinking about the next lot of upgrades ......... :smt017 .......... surely that can wait!

Otherwise you will be distracted and that will mean you can't be getting total enjoyment of the marvelous upgrades you have just purchased. Which by the way,will almost certainly be right up there with the biggest single set of upgrades you will ever make .......... :smt023

I'm not surprised that it's in mint condition, Ray. When you think about it, what do you do with a power supply? Place it on the shelf, plug it in and switch it on. Buying a used power supply should be problem free, particularly as in your case when it is purchased through a reputable dealer. I think you can just sit back and enjoy it now.

Have you noticed what seems like a bigger dynamic range?

i am noticing a whole lot of where the hell did that come from. I never heard that before. Wow that bass is deep. Placing instruments where they are individually. Higher highs and lower lows. Crisp notes precisely made clearer. Sound staging and dimension are awesome. Loving the rawness of some tracks. Dsotm of mfsl is just mouth watering. The one line in time. " so much closer to death" so pronounced with such meaning.

i did speak to peter saying whether to continue with the deck or look at the pre amp.. will be a while before I do anything major. Will try a powerline which chris said he can help with. glass cups balls as well.

Need to be careful, Ray
Your present system and set up maybe on a nice even keel ...balance of harmony!
and as you're obviously enjoying how it is now then rest up and enjoy your music for the time being.

However, if it were my system i'd consider upping the pre-amp at some time in the foreseeable, a 252 is an interesting option; you wouldn't need a napsc, and also the prefix maybe plugged straight into the 252 for power - so you also wouldn't need a separate power supply for the prefix.

The prefix is cool because it has a DIN lead to pre, or to put it another way; when upgrading to Urika we naim preamp folk have the balls-ache of RCA connections to pre with the compromised use of a mayware DIN/RCA adaptor unless we spend money on a decent RCA-DIN cable. :g-yep:
