Yes, I already know it.
Servia is probably the safe area less prone to copycats . . .
More correctly because Zen Mod is best lightening up for the forum

Nelson hi, you said a while back in my Lightspeed Attenuator thread to a poster.
"You will need a buffer. If you can't come up with one, I do have
a nice 100K input JFET circuit scheduled for publication early this
year."

Any news on when you may have this one done?

Cheers George

My post seems to be the victim of hijackers.

Staying on topic: What improvements can be heard from the new preamps?

You gotta hear it youself, it is beyond wordy explanation.

Vix

P.s. Choky gotta test it first, then he'll tell you, because Papa is too modest and he won't tell it here

Just kidding. Of course everyone is impatiently waiting for new preamps/buffers/ equalizers...or even breadcrumbs....

Yes, in fact it will be the next thing out the door. The input
impedance is arbitrary - you can have 500K if you like.

I use the X2.5 with the X350 and they work well together.I might try and demo the XP?

The X2.5 is so competent though there would have to be significnt gains for an upgrade,mabe a pair of X1000's would be a better upgrade.

It would be intersting to know, from a technical point of view, what are the major differences between the new and the old pre-amp.
What's the main philosophy behind their design? For example, Spectral in their new series of pre-amp eliminated the external power chassis and the possibility to add the phono, too. Is this the case of the XP10, too? Why, on the other hand, the XP20 maintain the external power supply (if it is a power supply at all)?

A few things on the new XP 10.
Starting with the power supply it uses a nice new low noise transformer, High speed diodes discrete regulators and new types of capacitors.

The gain circuit module is updated with new parts and a new configuration. Neutrik, Cardas and all that good stuff.

Everybody worked hard to make it sound great, long listening sessions and fine wines.

Nelson took one home this weekend to try out on the TAD RS1 speakers.
