Yeah my Rachel shipped today! Now I will have Decware power in the Living room. It has the Jupiter Beeswax II caps with the stepped attenuator.

Looking forward to breaking it in, and now I think my ZP3 will sound better!

Very cool.  I predict you will be very pleased with the new amp.

Saw your profile and noticed that you have Blumenstein speakers.  I do, too, and enjoy them very much with my SE 34i.2+.  (System listed below.)

Cheers,
Blake

Hi Blake,
The Orca's are with my Decware SE84ZS in my computer room as a desktop system. The system in the living room is getting the Rachel and will be hookup to the speakers I bought and built from Madisound. They sound pretty good, however I'm going to giving them a shot after the Rachell has 100 hours on it and decide if I need to replace.

The short list for new speakers are the Decware 947's and the Omega Super 3s.

I do have a question for you, I notice that you are using the Goldring 1012GX for you cartridge and want to know how you like it?

One other item I to have a Lounge Audio LCR phone stage (one of the older ones).

Thanks,
Kevin

That's one heck of a desktop system.

Decware, Blumenstein and Lounge Audio ... You clearly have outstanding taste. Wink

The Decware 947s look great.  I happen to live about a mile from the Blumenstein shop and have heard the new model, the Mako.  They are outstanding and should be considered as well.

The 1012GX is a wonderful cartridge.  Big sound that really excels at the frequency extremes.  I got mine a long time ago; I think the price is now in the $500 range and I'm not sure how it measures against others in that price range.

The ZP3 looks great.  Maybe that'll be my next move!

Cheers,
Blake

0My Rachel arrived yesterday. I'm on the the second cycle of 5 hours on at least 5 off. I will say it sounds good but a little ruff. But its right out of the box and its so similar to my Zen Select but with more power. I love it!

Wow, yours arrived too! Great news! You know the drill, in a month you'll have forgotten all about it's being "new" and "breaking in" and you'll be grooving hard to the music!

This is one amp that I cannot ever consider selling. I have had mine less than a year, and it still amazes me with detail and bass.
