Re: Tube (power supply) rectification vs. solid state swap, made easy!
« Reply #15 on: July 04, 2016, 11:27:07 PM »
I would also like to mention that for those after a far more accurate and slightly more in your face sound while still retaining the timbers and magic that the LampizatOr is so well known for, a small mod which includes removing the valve rectifier and replacing it with high-speed soft recovery diodes (solid state rectification) makes a huge difference and for a very reasonable amount this upgrade can be done locally.  So the possibilities are endless!

We've also got dummy valve-less rectifiers (solid state on the inside, no glass) for some models where the internal elements (plates, etc) were replaced with diodes and the switch between tube rectification and SS is made easy as pie!


 


This allows for even more synergy adjustments to accommodate most systems, not to mention the fact that tubes can also be replaced for different sound signatures as well as output caps.

High-End is an art that requires fine-tuning, those who know how to make the most of it will be rewarded. The rest of you out there, well... you're stuck!

We're very happy to announce that, the Atlantic DAC that Rotten Johnny reviewed recently and somehow cast some doubts on it's reliability turned out to be 100% reliable after we took it back. Joel tested it on his system with USB and SPDIF, no noise issues, Nilam Naram our JHB techie also tested it but mostly with SPDIF, zero issues, Wimpie (wjvrends) is currently listening to it for over a week now, USB again performing flawlessly and zero noise issues. Wimpie has now fallen in love with it. Obviously we had a case of mismatch and as Joel put it so well, "the Atlantic was allergic to RJ system".

If anyone wishes to try it (other than RJ), please feel free to book a free demo!   ;)
