Track 6 is sang to the music of the Animals', "The House of the Rising Sun"...isn't that amazing?! Backing them up, among others, are John Hammond and Charlie Musselwhite.


Fred McDowell:
First Recordings: The Alan Lomax Portait Series - Mississippi Fred McDowell : Songs, Reviews, Credits, Awards : AllMusic

It's been remastered but imagine these tracks being recorded live in the field in 1959 when Alan Lomax traipsed thru the South/delta to capture local folk/blues singers, that otherwise would not have been recorded/compiled for us to enjoy.

Default Review on pages 3-5

6moons audio reviews: Warpspeed V8xW1

Here's a paragraph to whet your appetite...6 meters = 19.68 feet...no buffer recipe!!!

"For the money asked and the comprehensive -la-carte options available, the Allan Flores Warpspeed V8xW1 is a very fine specimen of the advanced passive preamp art. The no-stop no-step volume control affords very smooth very fine adjustments. The only thing that will take getting used to is that the knob on its hidden shaft turns with nary any resistance. At first it'll seem broken until we grok that light won't oppose our applied force. I was surprised that a 6-meter interconnect posed no real hurdles. Switching to an equivalent 1-meter lead made a far smaller difference than expected. Because this device is passive and additionally powered by batteries, there's zero noise. You clearly needn't be a trekkie or DIY advocate to appreciate the Warpspeed and embark on an affordable journey of exploration about what a really good passive preamp might do for your system. Particularly owners of valve amps should consider this. They might already have all the tone and body necessary to now focus on maximizing the complementary qualities of transparency, speed and energetic immediacy."


Thanks for taking the Warpspeed for a spin, Srajan.

I agree 100%...
The signal just flows from source to amp...
I am using it on daily basis for more then a year and never looked back to
an other passive pre-amp or volume control.
You just need to hear that passionate free flow of energy once and you will never look back. Right now I am using a DAC whit 2K output impedance and it sounds very good whit warpspeed. So I see no problem.

Marko, and it's just a healthy serving of LDRs, no buffers for appetizer or dessert...

Indeed...Once you get the almost perfect main course there is no need for dessert. One time I had a dream about perfect world of music. Maybe I can get there. It will never be perfect - we live in not perfect world but I am on the ride whit warpspeed to reach new altered states of music-chedelics...)

Default Owner feedback...

"First impressions on sound no different than being impressive visually. I had what I considered awesome sound with the volume control you are aware of. Your WS is in another league. All frequencies are superior. First thing I had to do was turn down by plate amps for the Augies. What has struck me most in the short time I have listened is the added 3 dimensionality and pinpoint imaging, as well as added "they are here" presence of the music. I went right to very familiar pieces I always use when evaluating new equipment, and here I go again hearing these once again for the first time with the added material coming out...did I mention dynamics!

Will get some extended listening in this weekend and give you more feedback. Awesome piece of musical gear!"


Thank you, George!
