I haven't with this system yet, but did when I had two Pro32's going into the original Lens. A friend had a slew of Audit's/Tactics into his full dCS stack.

Another friend had the PWT(and the friend above)and sold it I was going to get one, but thought why when all is does is store the info in a buffer. Besides, the Oracle looks better.

I would've answered sooner, but my love of Photography and Guitars has taken hold again and both came before audio. I still have to have Bobby@Merlin finish my speakers.


Greetings-wondered if you put the audit/tactic in the system? Ps-highly recommend the PWtransport w/ integrated digital lens. Absolutely phenomenal and a giant killer IMHO. Cheers!


There aren't too many conpanies that offer an upgrade to old equipment and is one of the reasons I like Merlin speakers.


Thanks for that review. I had searched a couple of times but never found much.
I did buy some pairs of AM Liquid Clairvoyant's a while back, directly from Jerry and spoke with him over the phone. (heck of a nice guy). May consider more.
You sure seem pleased enough as to further upgrade them. Very interesting!



Did you read this?:

I have the actual review sample. I'm going to have it upgraded with new cables and a few "doohickey's" inside.


My email is:


Hi Tab,
Are you still using the Audio Magic Tubed IC?
I have been unable to find any information on that unit.
In what position did you place it and what are your impressions?
Is it a "knock out" in your system?


Hey Tabl10s, I wanted to invite you to the Sierra Nevada Audiophile Society Xmas party at my place this Saturday 12/8/12. My Name is Keith Mundy. I live in Land Park. My address is 778 Perkins Way, Sacramento, CA 95818. My phone number is 916 416-5638.

Hope to see you.



I think newer versions will.


Do you know if the Oracle CD2000 plays CDRs?



The '2000 is great. I'm between dacs as of now and need to finish the room. Been a fan since age six(I'm 50) and can't wait for Mayweather to take apart Cotto, Alvarez and Martinez(like all three against other fighter's).


One day.


Alright...I will say it. Your system is a knock out!. Would like to see some pictures of the whole system together. Happy listening.


How does that Oracle transport sound? I have been a fan of the design of their products for over 30 years. I have been tempted to buy the CD2000 or CD2500 just because of how beautiful it is. If I saved the money to get myself a serious DAC, I'd really be in position to buy one.

Congrats on assembling your system.

Are you a pug, ex-pug or a trainer? I'm a huge boxing fan. Great Ali photo.
