Just disconnected my Pass Labs Xono, and X1 line stage. Will put them up for sale.

They served me well for several years.

Purchased an SST Ambrosia 2000 2nd Edition full preamp.

Took about 20 days to settle in, and now sounds better than any preamp, I have ever heard.

Very warm, rich, quiet, and extremely detailed sonics. All I could ask for, and more!

I have a new, very realistic sounding, collection of CD/SACDs, and LPs!

My "end of life" preamp, that I will take to my grave.


Used Red rose r3 monitor speakers, I’ve been desiring this Speakers for yrs and they showed at good price, to add to my Speakers collections. Used Tyr  Nordost  1 Speakers cable, I heard them at Axpona lin the technic room and I like them.
