I miss my Mini Torii

My Mini is up at DECWARE being upgraded and I miss it. Even though I have the anniversary TABOO hooked up at home it is not the same.

I know what you mean.  I hate sending one of the machines off. . . You get so much out of these machines when you have them!

I'll soon have several spare amps, that eases the pain somewhat. Smiley

Try experimenting with the Taboo while you have it. Use a pre-amp.  Don't use a pre-amp. Experiment with volume levels and speaker placement.  Do something isolation related, or try a power cord out. Might distract you from your Mini Torii nonpresence and you are likely to find a different, maybe better sound for the Taboo in the system, and might learn a few things to apply to the Mini Torri when it's home. . .

The TABOO belongs at my office so it is only doing substitute duty here at home. The home CSP2 is up at Steve's being looked over for a minor problem it developed; I would guess a faulty trim pot or pots. Therefore, the TABOO is by itself. I popped in a 12AX7 tube to boost the gain and it does well enough by itself with the MG944 speakers.

I am working on fixing up my speaker wires with new bananas, a black nylon sleeve to match the interconnects and heat shrink tubing.
