    Avid volvere..any impressions please

    Generally speaking a wonderful deck. Andy’s comments are accurate imo, especially in the wrong system, but pair it well (a ‘musical’, rather than overly detailed cart and maybe a valve phono stage) and you’re right up there. Re value, it rather depends on the iteration of the sequel, as there’s been a couple. What exact model is it Manohar? Any pics?

    For my tastes, I think you’re right Mike. I can see that some people will prefer the drive, timing and flexibility of the 907 though. It’s actually got plenty of flavour too, just not quite as nuanced as the Vida. I could happily live with either of them to be honest. Thing is That long term I’m not sure I can justify the expense of either! It’s been lovely owning them both but it’s big bucks territory really in comparison to the rest of my vinyl set up.

    VIDA - Cartridge Issues & Recommendations

    So the pre section in the Jwood is passive? I do remember noting a comment somewhere (could have been Tom Montesquieu on AoS) that the Vida favours active preamplification but I’m running mine into a zero gain Nelson pass pre stage and it absolutely sings, and a previous owner, Adey, used it with The Truth passive pre and loved it.

    Haha yep! Good fun this. The Vida and 907 are pure class, as you’d expect, but the phono stage in the crayon is no slouch either. It could easily be mistaken for a top end stand alone piece. The real surprise is the Lesbox modded Yaqin. A massive, vibrant sound, easily the P4P winner considering it cost all of £175.
  8. Beautiful Pani. You always have the most beautiful pieces. I bought a Shindo pre from Pani a couple of years back and the transaction was an absolute pleasure. Buy with confidence folks!
