Hi guys

Thanks for the advice ..believe me that is more than welcome...
Today the LM Burson came in...maybe I test it tomorrow evening.

On my to do list is now first of all the AT&T board..so that I know what I am listening to in future tweaking
(Was also used in the old situation)...I expect a lot putting that one back in.

The tubes I expect that they arrive somewhere next week or so.....

I will keep the py500 in mind...

A pourly soldered cap and my shiga is dead

4 hours later I seem to have found the short to a nearby pad, but shiga is still not responding... Too tired to check more stuff now... I m praying that it s just the 7808 that is fried because of the short...

Thank God I managed to resuscitate it ...

I ve done some big changes though so it will be hard to test things before I get some grasp on the new stuff, the bigger one being trying to move to my Audio Research VS110 from my Electrocompaniet AW120 amp...

Not to mention the fresh and different caps on the shiga, and the dale attenuator...

I took a Wadia connection board for the PiTbull supplying me all the possible connections (AT&T, BNC, Toslink and AES/EBU).

For cable I use the Translight known as one of the best AT&T in the business.

Well to be honest.....it was not what I expected.....

Shure it was a bit more smooth...but nowhere near the difference I noticed a couple of years ago.

Maybe it had to do with the fact that I recently started playing with a Goldmund coax cable...I do not know....

The music of Haydn with Du Pre was simply wonderfull and despite the mediocre recording of the orchestra the cello is paramount in your livingroom...also the presence of Du Pre is captured like watching a movie.....

This is the reason why I want to go the extra mile...

Erik, you wouldn't happen to have a spare one of these, would you?
