    • APL Hi-Fi re-designed Denon 2900 w/ ECC99 tube & 32 bit DAC board
    This unique SE Class A design has a 211KHz upsampling, a hybrid attenuator and a total of 2 components on the entire signal path from the DAC outputs to the line output.
    • Elrod Power Systems EPS2 Signature
    These cables are targeted towards low-amperage components like CD players and pre-amplifiers. Smooth, eloquent, and refined.
    • Finite Elemente Cerapucss
    isolation devices
    • APL Hi-Fi UA-S1
    Hybrid amplifier with single tube voltage gain stage using two ECC99 triodes with a zero-gain and no-feedback bipolar power buffer. The absolute best amplifier I've ever heard.
    • APL Hi-Fi UA-S1-inside
    Here's a look inside...
    • DNM terminated with Eichmann Bullets
    The most amazing sounding copper I've ever heard, teminated with Eichmann silver bullets.
    • Elrod Power Systems EPS3 Signature
    These cables are targeted towards high-amperage components like large amplifiers.
    • Finite Elemente Cerapucs
    Designed for direct coupling for defined contact with components weighing up to 500 pounds, the Cerapuc's high-tech ceramic ball does all the work to reduce resonances. Along with a precision machined stainless steel base and height-adjustable top section for achieving correct damping the Cerapuc achieves better resolution, better soundstage, better dynamics and better musicality with no resonance build-up, overdamping, or loss of detail. Worth evey single penny!

    • Isoclean 105F II
    • Isoclean 105F II Power Bar with Audio Grade Noise Filter • Copper Chassis • 4 Outlets • EMI Noise Isolation • Rhodium and 24K Gold Plated Sockets • 100% Hand Made • Resting on Finite Elemente Ceraballs
    • Elrod EPS 3 Signature
    This is David's latest version with 004 Oyaide connectors.
    • Oyaide R-1
    Oyaide's state of the art receptacle, the 20A rated R1.
    These start with a base of Beryllium, which is highly polished (twice), upon which layer of Palladium is laid down (and polished twice), on which a layer of Platinum is laid over (and polished twice).
    • DNM Precision Solid Core
    Advanced characterisation methods were developed to design the magnetic performance and to provide a balanced capacitance, inductance and resistance - factors that, when correctly aligned, can improve the amplifier's sound quality.
    • Totem Acoustics Hawk
    The Hawk exemplifies total involvement with all your senses. Truly full range, extremely compact and aesthetically balanced, it has incredible attributes and strengths that will guide you like no other. Detail, continuity, harmonic nuances, timbre, precision and it's self effacing holography all point to an experience that will never cease to amaze and involve you.

    • DIY X-2000
    Lots of power!
    • GIK Acoustics 242's & Tri-Traps
    The GIK 242 Acoustic Panels have absorption from 4000Hz down to 250Hz. The Tri-Trap has been effectively designed to absorb more low end, but also does an excellent job of absorbing the high end, creating smooth sound absorption from 50 Hz to 5000 Hz. I have one Tri-Trap in each of the front corners, one 242 behind the listening position and one 242 on each side at the first reflection points.

How are the Elrods coming along, any better than stock?
Is the UA-S1 the amp only version or does it have the volume control enabled?
Are you still impressed by it?


Thats no problem I didnt think you were. I was just wondering about some quick impressions. Thanks for the response, Ill let you know my experiences once I recieve my gear.


Ok, no need to debate. I have the new Elrod Statement with Oyaide plugs that I will try on the amp. I was just wondering since Alex recommends Silver in teflon wires if you had tried something similar. BR Par


See you have a UA-S1, I have ordered one myself and really looking forward to it. Whats your experience with power cords and the UA-S1. Have you compared the stock to a Elrod cord?
