...by the way the isolation transformer serves only as extra weight for the cd transport.

Woah, what in the world is going on in those photos haha! Very cool looking Smiley

So, your not actually using the tripplite? I was going to ask how you liked it Smiley

And what in the world is that base on your MT? Sorry is you've explained this already..

Last question, what power cord are you using?

what's going on is that I didn't have enough room for 8 solen film caps. Now I do.
The trip lite doesn't do anything for me, I replaced it with a ps duet power bar, which makes a real difference for around 200$.
The power cords are diy VH audio. Chris VenHaus sells a bunch of interesting cables and you can find the diy recipes right on the website.
Talk to you later!

Yes Rad, your comment a while back that you thought the Tripplites were imparting an etch signature to the sound made me compare and contrast (I was using the Tripplites before the PS Audio Duets) and I came to agree with you about that and removed the Tripplitss from the main system. As I began to work on the second system and increase its fidelity, I found that they were also not helping me there and now they reside on a closet shelf. Smiley  I trust your ears my friend.

That "base" is an Audio Note component, a DAC I think. Smiley

oh, I thought by 'base'  he meant the new base on my MT, which is  much deeper than the original one ( to host 6 huge 47uf caps and 2 smaller 10uf). originally there were 8 small electrolytic caps in the power section.

The other base is an AudioNote kit DAC (the 2.1).
I forgot who suggested the ps duet to me, was it you Lon or was it Rivieraranch...... I can't remember. But thank you!

I think it was me Rad. You're welcome.

You're right, he probably meant the wooden base which I didn't glom to be different.

Happy listening!

Are those audio note gold plated knobs?

I have one for my Torii but gave up trying to get it to not look lop sided when tightened up with the set screw. I wish they a push on pressure fit which works best with the split shaft on the Torii. I don't the bottom to rest on the plate as it will eventually mar it up. Any suggestions?

Hey Lon and Rad,

I was indeed referring to the "base" of the MT in my post earlier, but thanks for mentioning what the DAC is....I had to zoom in until I could faintly make out "DAC" on the front panel before I knew what kind of component it actually is. But I still didn't know what model/brand it was Smiley
