Default Tram2

We are one of the US dealers for DIY HiFi Supply and I must say Brian has given the new meaning to absolute perfection. This DHT OTL Preamplifier is one of the finest sounding pieces that is priced under $10,000, maybe $14,000 and when I found that DIY HiFi Supply set it's retail price at $1395 I was shocked and impressed at the same time. We carry over 30 different brands, mostly high end and the Diy HiFi Supply Tram Mk2 DHT OTL Preamplifier has taken the top spot in our showroom.

We had a few problems in the beginning all of which was our fault , once we got past the issues, we fired up the Tram2. Wow, this has brought our current amps and speakers to a new level. Enjoy the Music.com said it best "Is Tram Mk2 the best preamp in the world? I can't answer that, but I'm sure it would not disgrace itself against any preamplifier....." I complete concur.

If you buy the kit, please post any issues, although the DIY HiFi Support is top notch, so you will probably not need to past the questions here. Either way, I would love to hear your comments or see a build thread.

Julian,

We are one of the US dealers for DIY HiFi Supply and Bastanis. I tested the Tram Mk2 using the Bastanis XTZ Sub Amp 1 DSP with a DIY HiFi Supply LD91. I was able to hook up the amplifiers using the current outputs on the Tram2 and then adjusted the XTZ Sub. We also tested the impedance and it was not close to the max rated by DIY HiFi Supply.

So would we at DIYHFS so please DO post the questions here so the DIY community can benefit. Patterns emerge that can help us with refinements. Also the same mistakes are often repeated.

thanks
Brian

Thanks. We haven't lined up a reviewer for the Crescendo yet. When we get a few more out there i;ll try to collect some user comments and post it.

regards
Brian

Julianr, As a last resort I can always send you my Tram2 to demo from the US. I would require a refundable deposit but I would be willing to offer this option if you find it hard to get to someone local. I just wanted to throw out this offer. PM me if this helps.
