Just placed my order!
01/24/17 at 00:15:39
 
Hello,

I'm  settling in for my wait because I just ordered my new integrated amp! It will replace my Musical Paradise Mk3 MP 301.  While the MP3 a one is a great sounding little integrated amp I'm hoping this new one will blow it away.

I run zu Omen Def mk2's with the Radian upgrade.

I'm posting to get feedback on anything you may think I need to know and to learn more about this little amp.  It seems to be raved about everywhere I read about it.

From everything I've read this should be a very decent pairing. Can't wait for mine to get in! How has the wait typically been after you order?  I know the site says 4 to 12 weeks. Should I be expecting the 12 week time -  i'm in patient by nature so hopefully it won't be 12 weeks, but hey if it is I guess it'll be good practice for patient!

I placed an order for a Rachael about a week ago and was told over the phone that it'd be 8-12 weeks.

Lemming & Samsdad- Congrats on the Rachael. We love ours and listen daily. Don't worry about the break in, just start playing music. Breakin is real, but our system never sounded less than good when new. Then it went to dam good and now I just wonder why I didn't do this years earlier. Keep us posted on your progress when the gear arrives. Happy listening, Chris.

Holy Sh$t!!!  I just hooked up my new 34I.5!  Freakn' amazing.

First album was Dave Brubeck Take Five. The drum "thwacks" sound real. I can sense the drum face taughtness. The notes just hang. And this thing delivers supurb bass. The walls to my small room seen 20 feet further away!  Wow, just Wow!  Worth every penny. For the record I run Zu Omen Def Mk.ll's with the radian tweeter upgrades. My front end is a NAD M51 DAC or a VPI Prime with the Parasound JC3+ for a phono pre and a Dynavextor 20x2L cart. Damn - the dynamics are ridiculous. Bravo Mr. Deckert, bravo!

I received mine last week after ordering at the end of January. I waited patiently. Still breaking in. Great build quality. These are worth the wait.

Sounds good, of course. Wasn't hearing quite the dynamics I was hoping for. Bizarre experiment tonight. I had some cheap Shuguang EL34s lying around and I put those in just for kicks, and now the Rachel seems to sound a lot nicer. Now, this is not based on critical, concentrated listening... just a few hours. But I didn't expect that at all. It may be a "downgrade" that only seems to sound better at first, once everything is taken into account. For right now, I'm just enjoying.

The sound of the Rachel out of the box was not that different from the Sunfire solid state amp I was running before. Now it is markedly different. Maybe more tube rolling is in order? Could get expensive. Then again, these Shuguang EL34-EBs are about as cheap as they come.

 The thing is, Rachel will continue to sound better and different, but not with out a phase (in my case anyway) of sibilance in some of my recordings. This was expected, and I await the day she is finally ready to play nice. I this amp before the UFO came out, and so sent it back to get the upgrade, hence the change in tonality.
