  1. A personal opinion of course but I don't think it's possible for Mr Nick Gorman to make a bad bit of kit. If I didn't already have the Pathos InPower Mono's.... The LDA Mono's would be my next choice (Plus you don't need radiators in the room) [emoji23] I guess you can tell.... I'm a fan! (Sorry about the pun) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Many thanks, I didn’t realize there were so many. The Teradak looks interesting but I think the SR7 @ £1499 is a bit of overkill for the Katana [emoji23] Currently got the Allo Shanti (Dual output) on loan at the moment and it’s a monumental improvement on the IFI Units. I also have The LDA Linear power supplies for my MicroRendu and Mytek Brooklyn DAC but again too costly for the Katana. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Many thanks for your kind offer. I friend has just taken delivery of the Allo Shanti (Dual output) LPSU and he has kindly offered it to me to try for a few days. Whether this actually betters the twin IFI supplies is yet to be determined. The Katana DAC is really just a second unit and I know I can spend many hundreds of pounds on a decent power supply but I wanted to see just how good this little DAC could be. Anyway, thanks again for your offer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. As you have one of these power supplies, I need two. How do you recon they stack up against the IFI Linear Power Supplies, I daft question I know, but I’m really looking for an improvement. More expensive I know! But more Money doesn’t always mean better. You advice would be appreciated. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. I looking for a decent 5v linear Power Supply for my Katana DAC. Depending on Amperage (as the Katana requires at least 2 x 2.5A I’m currently using IFI Linear power Supplies (x2), but wondering if there is something / anything better? Anyway, has anybody got or can recommend a decent power supply? (Must be 5A+) There appears to be loads of options on EBay (mainly Chinese) but I’ve not got a clue if there any good.[emoji33] Obviously, if I had loads of money (which I don’t), I would go down the LDA route, but perhaps that’s another lifetime. Any advice or recommendations would be much appreciated? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Opps.... I might take some stick for this post..... I meant NO BACKGROUND CLICKS OR POPS. And not Silence[emoji23] you can still hear the music[emoji33] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. This is not really a review, more an astonished statement. I believe others on this site have used this stuff but I just needed to give my thoughts about this, on what some might deem as “snake oil” Anyway, been into hifi for more that fifty years and never came across a product that works better than this stuff. Sorry, I should say I’m a Vinyl nut... but also into Roon Streamed music / CD / streamed Radio Etc..... so I’m not a dead head! and appreciate modern technology but Vinyl is still my favorite medium. This stylus cleaner is absolutely the business... trust the Japanese to get something right. “No clicks, No pops, just silence” Fabulous [emoji736] Any thoughts.... or do others use this stuff?

  8. A long shot but does anybody have or know where I can obtain the above schematic? Many thanks in advance. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Don’t get me wrong, I think these are stunning amps and the design is fabulous by comparison to a true class a Amp and run much cooler.....if there was such a thing as a second chance (Which is unlikely) that’s the way I would have gone. Mind you .... I’m not unhappy with the Pathos Hybrids either. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Yes indeed, I did know! I guess for £12k per mono.... some class A was involved. Jolly nice they are though[emoji41] Mind you, they don’t run as hot as my Pathos “Inpower” Class A electric fires. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. Martin, I never assume anyting. Been into hifi for far too long to be a numpty. We all like what our ears can hear[emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Yes indeed it is.[emoji106] And it Is your old pre... And jolly good it is too[emoji108] I've had loads of fun with this passive pre with all sorts of amps. Just love it[emoji106] I purchased the Glasshouse TVC to go with the Canary Mono's and your Chinese Pre sounded better...... Bizzare!!! Works better than most think!! Enven though it has a unique name[emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Hay guys, my apologies. I was comparing these cheap Class D amps with my Pathos Class A amps, and that's not the way to go... Sorry. As ever, it's horses for courses. Class D amps ain't bad..... But never a comparison to other amp technologies. We like what we like....Yes????? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. The Mono's are quite staggering. Theses are self builds. Unfortunately, silver cases only, but I guess you could get black aluminium to suit[emoji106] I don't even know the guys that produced these are still on ebay? I've had these for three years now. However, there are so many different sellers producing the same sort of kit or even better. Don't knock Chinese stuff too much, they make some decent stuff. How they post it to the UK For free is beyond me. I paid £55 per mono + £10 for the cases (silver only, at the time) ha.... Silly Money for such decent amps! (Self build but not Einstein education) Bargain!!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Definitely Class T exists ( Tripath Technologies). Mind you, you need a bigger brain than mine to explain how it all works. Hours of confusing reading on the subject.[emoji33] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
