refreshed isn't proper word

improved is better one ...... even if Mikorist changed new xovers I sent to him (i included every trick I knew , worthy of pepperpot based Tannoy DC) , to something more resembling old ones by schematic , now there are substantially better parts in , including hefty chokes - that one for bass is made with 2mm dia CuL

I've been listening to Classical music today.
After a couple of Brandenburg concertos you will be in a state of shock.
Sissy improve sonically after about a 20-to-45-minute warmup. So the classics are amplified at every single level of gain equally. It's not like solid-state when the Lento comes and the tones become quieter that you have to adjust the volume knob to hear it better. Quiet parts in the foreground well-sounded at any sound level - from zero to maximum. The solid-state design tendency is to thin out textural weight depending on the strength of the signal. Here, the texture of each instrument is equals the mass to the its density.

The harmonic phases at Sissy goes in completely different lanterns from tubes and solid-state. They are bent under other angles. So the sound is a second dimension been compared to both.

Where the sound is typically watered down with solid-state, here with Sissy perception of textural tone density is in the right place easy and relaxed. Sissy is grain-free tone structure. It has all the possible features that improvelong-term listenability.. The tubes often have grainless pristine textures in upper midrange. Here are upper midrange is painted like on silk. But at incredible speeds without overt and overwhelming. The sweetness and warm tonality shifts between 2th , 3th and 4th harmonics. Textural flavor and coloration are very much dependent on the connected pre-amplifier. Sissy takes on the preamp’s personality and delivers it as a clone.

So, If there is no esoteric preamp (of at least 6,000 euros in line or DIY preamp that is in 'Spitzenklasse') - better not to connect to the amplifier.

Mikorist, thank you for the detailed description of the sound of SissySIT and its effect on the listener.

I can very well relate to and share your findings. I am using as preamp either an Aikido with regulated PSU and DC heating (currently using E80CC in the gain stage and 6N6P for the followers) or Wayne's BA 2018 linestage, currently with Toshiba TTA004B / TTC004B outputs.

Both seem to be very transparent and low-distortion preamps. I am pretty happy with both, though I slightly prefer the Aikido - a bit more detail in the highs; or a bit more prominence in the highs, but in a very pleasant way, and a bit more emotional involvement.

I also find that I seem to be listening quieter than with other amps, not missing anything.

Regards,
Claas

Would it be totally crazy and a super-bad idea to try to cram 4 channels of SissySIT into a 5U/500 Modushop chassis?

Babysitters are a must anyway since i have to calculate 35 C ambient temp during the summer, no AC.
