Description

I sold my turntable and focused entirely on digital sources. I believe that both are justified. But reaching high end (whatever that may be) takes a tremendous effort. Therefore my focus on the following path:

- Control PC with Roon (streaming Qobuz or NAS) via LAN
- Audio PC with HQPlayer (conversion PCM to DSD with high-precision EC modulators) via USB
- R2R DAC Denafrips Terminator via XLR
- T + A M10 monos via speaker cable
- Sonus Faber Amati Futura

    Thanks @joel_hifi 

    I heard different types of connections with a sound engineer:

    A) Only with T + A M10 monos
    B) Only with T + A PA 3000 HV
    C) With T + A PA 3000 HV as preamplifier and T + A M10 monos

    Scenario A) was clearly superior to B) and C). More deep bass, more speed and beautiful timbres. Perhaps some Technical Specifications are an explanation for this:

    T + A M10
    Nominal power 8 ohms: 1000 W.
    Damping factor 4 ohms:> 115
    Slew rate: 65 V / Js
    PWR supply reservoir capacity: 180,000 μF
    Distortion: <0.009%

    T + A PA 3000 HV
    Nominal power 4 ohms: 500 W.
    Damping factor 4 ohms:> 100
    Slew rate: 60 V / μS
    PWR supply reservoir capacity: 120,000 μF
    Distortion: <0.03%

    The M10 monos are better in all respects.

    Very nice evolving system, thanks for keeping us posted :)
    How do the M10s compare to the MP3000HV?

    Thank you very much. Yes it sounds wonderful.

    Thanks, yes the Amatis are difficult to drive. The Impedance in bass drops below 3 ohms. See Sonus Faber Amati Futura loudspeaker Measurements on Stereophile.

    Very, very nice! Those amps look crazy, Are the Futuras hard to drive? They are on my short list
