AGD Tempo in the house
I dealt with Alberto direct as I am in the UK (although I think he now has a UK dealer). He is super responsive and a pleasure to deal with.   
New Generation Class D - AGD Audion Mkiii upgrade
@Peter_s I think you will be delighted with the Mkiii tubes. Mine sounded great immediately but got even better after a few days. Would be interested to know how you get on with them. Interesting that non-audiophile visitors often seem to really ... 
New Generation Class D - AGD Audion Mkiii upgrade
@giantsalami that is very interesting and I have been doing some testing and found my regenerator has stopped regenerating! I’d previously been running Atmasphere OTL and that definitely sounded better with the regenerator. I’ll report back when ... 
New Generation Class D - AGD Audion Mkiii upgrade
Hey @testrun how are you finding the Mkiii Audions now that you have more than an hour on them? Incidentally, I’ve just removed them from my regenerator and plugged them straight into the wall and it’s improved the dynamics even more! I’m quite s... 
New Generation Class D - AGD Audion Mkiii upgrade
@testrun I thought you’d be thrilled with the sound of the Mkiii tubes! I also loved that the tubes came in their own Pelican boxes.    It would be fascinating to get your thoughts on the differences between each generation but enjoy your new tub... 
Horn speakers with Imaging?
I had great dynamics but minimal imaging until I followed Jim Smith’s setup procedure for my Avantgarde Duo’s. Taking time to really try different, repeatable steps and moving away from the rear wall now gives a wide and deep soundstage. However, ... 
New Generation Class D - AGD Audion Mkiii upgrade
Call me shallow but I like the LED’s and I love the fact that an upgrade takes 5 minutes to do!  
New Generation Class D - AGD Audion Mkiii upgrade
Hi @testrun, I think you’re in for a treat. Give the new GaNTubes a day or two - it will be interesting to get your thoughts.  
New Generation Class D - AGD Audion Mkiii upgrade
  Hi there @ghdprentice  In my system I didn’t find the Mkii Audions to lack a bit of refinement on the top end but I would say that the Mkiii GaNTubes have opened up the top end quite significantly. Last night I was listening to Talking Heads ... 
New Generation Class D - AGD Audion Mkiii upgrade
Hi @acresverde I was previously using (and will keep forever) an Atmasphere S30 Mkiii OTL amp. This has been a very good match for the Avantgardes with a really good mid/high range. I use the high level/speaker connection into the Avantgarde SUB22... 
SET Lovers, what's the one solid state amp you love(d)?
I made the switch to Class D with a pair of AGD Audion monoblocks. These amps are the best I’ve had in my system by some margin. Firstly, they produce no hiss/hum which has been a problem as I have high efficiency speakers. The sound is almost tub... 
Has anyone used the SVS SoundPath Wireless adapter with the SVS Subs
I had the Soundpath wireless adapter with SVS SB3000’s and it worked very well. I’ve now moved to REL S812 with REL Airship ii and I don’t hear any difference between wireless and long interconnects.  
After 50 years, I have finally found my destination amps... AGD Audions!
@mglik I’m in a similar position having moved from Atmasphere S30 OTL to AGD Audions. I loved the OTL sound but the Audions (and I suspect Ralph’s class D amps) give a similar sound but with more detail and even better dynamics. I listen mainly t... 
New Class D amplifiers
I have also recently switched to AGD Audions after years of running an Atman-Sphere S30 Mk3 OTL. I love the sound of the S30 OTL amp but was getting frustrated at valve availability, adjustments and energy consumption. The AGD Audions have been a... 
SET amplifier (for AvantGarde Duo's-original) recommendations
I have been running Duo’s since 2006 with Atma-Sphere S30 Mk3 OTL stereo amp. The amp is dead quiet and produces a wonderful sound. At ear-splitting levels it wasn’t even showing 1W on the meter.   I’ve recently changed to AGD Audions and these ...
