Default It's time to get personal!

It’s been 2 years…how time flies. I thought it’d be a great time to introduce something new and off the beaten track in personal hi-fi. For the past several months I have revisited the Warpspeed design...

To read on, please see attached.

I'm pairing up with the WS with ncore400 monoblocks, M&D Monitor+ and merging Horus DAC with VERY GOOD results!

thank you for the great product, Allan.

Thanks Ray!



Here's more of turbogti's feedback on his V8.1-xW1 from an email last night...

"And, when I replaced the pre-amp with your Warpspeed, the resolution is mind blowing. So clean, energetic, pure, full of air-nessa, and smooth as hell; it was simply unbelievable. I'm sure your preamp is a lot more advance than my Lightspeed + R core linear power supply. To be honest, I didn't know the differences can be this big. I'd say the Warpspeed is a very good match with nCore. The XLR connections does make a big difference. It is also inherently battery powered, thus i don think any type of AC/DC powered amps can achieve this type of performance without spending load of cash on buying filters/ isolators, transformers, regenerators."

Is this product balanced out for use with ncore or must one use rca -> xlr adapters?

Default turbogti's Warpspeed

Yes, balanced IN/OUT...

More from Ray:
"And wow, I was blown away by your Warpspeed! So much more resolution in the music and sounds so "organic" and powerful!

This is really a good product!"

i received mine today , and no needs to wait many hours of burning to feel that 's is simply the best passive level control i have tried.. (and i have tried a lot of these )

so no "à la 6moon" mystical blahblah here:


1: the product is nice finished ( even if i 'm not a fan of the big aluminium knob)
2: the control of the level is very fine
3: the sound is flawless ( if your source is..)

so in a word well done allan and thanks for the sweet deal.

It can be done...sticking point is still the $600 added to the unit price to do it. Many have inquired but no one has taken the leap and so I have not been keen in getting one built. So far everyone has been happily operating theirs manually.

I think I posted this option's pricing breakdown somewhere in the W'speed thread at ACircle.
