Problem Solved.

Sorry for not posting for a while. I appreciate all the help. I did play with placement more on both the Spatials and the Cornwalls. It helped a bit, but both are/were still anemic. I think it was Matchstickman who mentioned Steve saying the amp needs to be paired with the right speakers. (My paraphrase)

Well, he was right. I'm now the proud, thankful and amazed owner of a pair of HR's. I'll write more about the whole odyssey in a month or so. However, for right now with only 20-30 hours on them, I'll just say the Torii MK IV, the Pre and the HR's are killer. I want to get some real hours on them before I say too much more.

All along the way, I've made and heard incremental improvements. But nothing like the Torii and HR's together.

I also need to say that I'm fortunate to have a wife that let me turn our living room into what she called "the showroom" for the last month with three and four different amps and four pair of speakers.

I guess I'm a skeptic at heart. However in this case, I have drank the Kool-Aid; and it is good.

Again, thanks to all for your willingness to share knowledge. The information and experiences you've shared will still serve to help me tweak and improve my system in the future.

And Lon, your tip on the Rectifiers was on point too.

Special thanks to Ziggy. How lucky to live in NC and have him for a two county over neighbor. I'll be back!

I have listen to many of these and I own some.  This would be a worthy list to have.

Yeah Syd I get the Decware sound. I don't need the music to be kicking it I just want to hear things so they are crystal clear. Right now there's still a smear or glare or whatever it is and I don't think it should be there. I'm pretty sure everything is broken in at this point and from what I've discovered so far it seems like it may turn out to be several weak links. I can tell you when I compared the Linn TT to the Rega, things got cleared and more forward. You could actually hear when there were two vocalists each individual voice. With the Rega it was hard to discern the backup vocals. So there's definitely some detail missing here and hopefully I can determine what the cause is.

Just a kind of thought Rick as to the sound of my gear, and that of probably all Decware amps. It`s not Hi-Fi. I`ve revisted Hi-Fi recently and the flattish, punchy, non depthish sound isn`t like the Decwares. The bass doesn`t breath either. Its a long way off.
I`m new to the audiophile sound thanks to Steve & co. and once the initial shock is over you can experience the full picture of unforced music.
Loudness and volume were also a learning curve.
You may have, or I did for sure, at first wanted a louder sound, or loud enough for people to ask you to turn it down.
It`s soooo subtle.
You think it isn`t loud but the scale will tell you different, it`s big.
Yes, I guess as you move up the watts scale you will get `louder` as a `starting point` so to speak. Bigger rooms will/might need it. Thats when the different power valves and push/pulls do their stuff.

You really have a wealth of knowledge that I can relate to. I am beginning to understand what goes into our system is what's gonna get amplified and then come out whether it's good or bad. Good will sound better, bad will sound worse. Seems to be a constant battle to search out the best to listen to but can also be considered a fun thing to find those little gems out there that just sound amazing. I am still tweaking my system and am considering a different TT but will not make the dive until I feel it's really worth it. I should have more refinement in the upcoming weeks or so. Hopefully this doesn't come at too much of a cost and I can just kick back and enjoy hearing musical bliss...

Bit late here I think, I saw the post but it never connected. I can reccomend the Rotel RCD-865. Very good price, I picked mine up for, now dont laugh :) ( it`s a great player and a replacement for another that developed a fault ) 35.
Analogue sounding, great soudstage.
When you get lost in the music you dont think, whats this, I`m lacking.

Well I did send the TorrII Jr back to Steve to evaluate and he said it worked perfectly. So, in the next couple of weeks I'm going to get on loan from the HiFi store pretty much a complete system so I can try swapping things out 1 at a time to see if I can hash this out. It just beats the crap out of me that this stuff is so finicky. But I'm hoping in the long run once I get a system that has all the kinks out, it should sound AMAZING!
