Happiness is....A Whisper
« on: December 21, 2017, 02:14:19 PM »
Got mine delivered an hour ago, man is it beautiful!!!!!!
Connection was 2 minutes, had all cables put in place when the Spider man informed me that it shipped, record also handy and waiting to be played.
Fitted with both MM and MC modules.  My biggest fear was that the gain would be so that it would match the volume level when switching between CD and  turntable.  Well, trust Schalk to get it spot on.

Best is, straight out of the box it sounds FANTASTIC.
Zero hum, zero grounding issue, nothing, now to get rid of the family over the festive season for me to relax and enjoy.

All I can say, a Whisper has been a dream for many a year now, got to thank Schalk to make this happen, and with a couple days to spare before Christmas.

If this improves with hours listened in order for valves to get their mojo, I am not going back to work in Jan

Congrats.
Have cycled through all my audio gear a few times in the last few years, but my whisper has been the one constant in the Setup, and will NEVER leave.  :thumbs:

 :clap:

Sooo glad I gave my friend Johann in Canada a head-up on the one Audionut was selling! He had recently acquired a DV 20XL2 and his phono wasn't quite up to it.

The unit obviously sounds as classy as it looks...  :drool:
Happy listening Bertus!!  :2thumbs:

Just loving it. So bummed that I cannot listen today, due to the horrible heat we are experiencing in Paarl right now. Knocking 40 degrees and the listening area is not equipped with an aircon.

That sucks, was at Tweede Tol 2 days ago. Nice weather there and as soon as you go over the mountain, boiling.
