Mitch4t, yes, they are heavy and do not try to move them your self, I mean X-600 is also almost similar and great sounding amps, if I had smaller speakers I would have settled for them. After you spend this much the dealer will do anything for you, if not get rid of them !!.

Thanks..

Chadnliz, thanks for your comments, I would love to share my system with anyone here, kinnda dissapointed that none of my friends are into audio, I must say as for speakers there are a lot of great ones out there, I really enjoy my Savoys which play all kinds of music such a ease and detail, however when I play the strings I must say Stradivari touches my soul, playing YoYoma's Cinema Paradisio just does it, but for over all balance and variety Savoys do it. Recently I heard Kharma's exquisite reference and wow, what a clarity they performed, also I liked the Dartzeel pre/power amp combination with smaller speaker settings, you should try them out...

Killer system....congrats on your achievement.

That must be some table you have there to support the weight of the XA 200 amps. Who in the world helped you to lift them that high to even get them on the table? Don't they weigh about 200 lbs each? I have the X 600's and we've never been able to get them more than a foot off the ground.

Good god man! You have some awesome stuff, way too much for one man to enjoy.....wanna share????????

All your critics I see up there^ looks like envey and a bunch of jealous guys, Hugos you have some really awesome gear and I would be like a kid in a candy store over at your place. But here is where I get ugly, you need a much better table if you enjoy vinyl.
Whats your favorite speaker?

Thanks guys for all your responses.
Regarding P0s VUK which is the most upgraded version with L+R out put ...there was a Audio Conference in Seoul Last week and I attended and the Esoteric Chief came from Japan , what an experience, he pitched the P-01 ...

Now regarding the Elagr plus and Verdi Lascala,
The P0s is more laid back and less distortion ,
The Lascala is more direct and revealing but tracking is
really bad compared to the Esoteric. Now, the VUK upgrade is not really applicable to DCS, since DCS is not L+R configuration. Only one out put from CDT is valid...
I prefer listening to P0s with CDs than DCS , I dunno why but it seems more natural, the DCS is a bit too harsh for me....

HI, I own P0s VUK and use it with Elgar. How does P0s/Purcell/Elgar+ compare to Verdi La Scala/Elgar+ on redbook CD? Is your P0s an upgraded VUK version with AES 3 outputs and 176/24?
Thanks in Advance, George

I love it.

I have similar amp/preamp (btw, have you rolled tubes, I highly recommend it), and my last speakers were SF Guarneri's. You must spend many hours of pure bliss in that sweet spot - hence being sleepless in Seoul!

Bbolival,

I only have on DA converter, and on DD converter,
however, I have 2 transports, and one is for SACD.
The only redundancy I have is Krell Power Amp,
which I am not using at this time, thinking of trading my
Avalon Opus speakers which I am using for AV with Kharma CRM 3.2FE and using my Krells to drive that....

ditto Nrchy. I think I would have a BLAST in there! Awesome collection!

If this gentleman is happy with his system why would people who have never heard it find it neccesary to be so critical???

nrchy

222222&text=ko
Yea. I would wish you have more space for your system to breath as well. Don't the amplifiers get too hot ? It seems to be very cramp.

Where on earth would or could you put an AV set up?

Did you actually BUY all of the equipment you've got? You can still afford to eat? Simply amazing!

arkprof

222222&text=bb
isnt all these gear overkill? redundancy in DA converters, preamps, amps, and speakers ? i mean visually it looks like a clutter of expensive audio equipment.

sound so beautiful.

I live in Korea and I am a Korean who used to live in NYC for over 8years,

222222&text=nr
