Mister Hagerman,

The short answer is:I won't buy the Boulder gear.Period.
I consider you to be a very well trained person and if CE is stopping you that's your choice.
Being a European I can only say this:this is one of the toughest markets to penetrate.Once you gain acceptance though it's your playing field.Besides there are a myriad of ways to get around,so give it a go.
I think you deserve it.


Sincerely,

Default xtreme phono

I like the 'La Boheme'.... Reminds me somewhat of a a phono preamp in Positive Feedback a number of years ago, balanced input thorugh an instrumentation amp, a TI? INA03??? driving a passive RIAA equilization to an op amp. There is a TI differential amp, THS4031, that facinates me on its technical implmetation (really spiffy way of dealing with CMRR and setting dc operating point), but I've no idea as to how the chip actually sounds -

I read today at AA about the Musical Fidelty's X-LP. NE5532 in a rather expensive amp??? Is it worth the money I wonder? Anyone who has more circuit details, even a schematic?

NAD PP-1 has also a NE5532 (or was it NE5534?) to one third of the price. OK, not so fancy box.

Hi Hagtech,

AFAIK, you do not need a CE approval to ship into Europe, but if you had a European distributor who then sold on the products they would then have to be approved. It is a standard required for European companies only, and If you comply with your local standards, shipping in for private use is ok, as long as they are then not sold on commercially.

Hope this helps...

Hi Bertrand,

That is correct as far as I'm up to date with those laws.
The only thing they need to do really is make a 240VAC primary available for the products.(an autodetect would be fine too)
Shouldn't be too difficult,I reckon.

Personally I quite like the filosophy behind the company and would welcome the product range in Europe.

Cheers,
