I am enjoying my SE84UFO3. They are coming along very well. I had a toe tapping session today.

Great Juan! Look very nice. The first pair of 25th Anniversary, eh? I'm looking forward to mine.

Just regular SE84UFO3. † Smiley

They arrived before the recent R&D breakthroughs were posted. I am thinking about upgrading, but I want to get to know what I have first.

Oh sorry, I thought perhaps yours was the one that was shipped out. Good idea to break these in and get to know them if you do decide to send them in for the upgrades.

Even without the upgrades these are fabulous amps, but I really want to go for the upgrade. My problem is that I have to ship them from Norway to Peoria, I guess at least 4-500 usd for the shipping alone. And a total cost of close to 2k is quite a lot. Yet, from Steveís post I read that it should be worth it.

I agree. The SE84UFO3 are great amps. I do not think I will be upgrading them because I would have to ship them back.

I thought long and hard before I pulled the trigger on the original purchase. I have no regrets now that something better has come along.

I have put the SE84UFO back in my music system while I wait for more details on 25th anniversary editions.

My SE84UFO3 are now in my TV system continuing to burn in.

I can envision talking myself into a pair of SE84UFO325 and moving the SE84UFO3 into backup or 2nd system duty. A very compelling argument!

Hello Juan,
Are those Mapleshade platforms under your amps ?
If so, did they make a difference ? ;
Inquiring minds want to know !!

Cheers, † † † † † † † † †Crazy Bill † Grin

Yes. Mapleshade platforms. They serve the purpose and are consistent with my other platforms and audio rack. I bought them when I decided to order the SE84UFO3 so I have not used the amps on anything else. Thanks

I donít know too much about DAC and have a gut feeling that this might the area in the audio chain were we first hit the point of diminishing returns. Still my Cambridge dacMagic has been my weakest link. Not a bad component, far from it, but I know now I have some potential here. Yesterday I got myself a AURALiC VEGA. So fun to find a good step upwards

This is really something else. And Iím still just using it with redbook material
