I think that they would work in in a Wicked One.

Sounds like you want one of these:

https://www.decwareproducts.com/zsb

and my understanding is passive components get built a lot faster than tube gear, which goes to the back of the wait list.

Preamps are a whole 'nother kettle of fish. For me personally I wouldn't want to be without one and there are a lot of good ones out there, depending on how much you want to pay. If you like Schiit, perhaps one of there's would be a good choice?

Ricardo -

Looks like the parts may have arrived as many of the UFO2.1's are now either "Parts Pulled" or "On Bench" .

My brain leads me down rabbit holes and I sometime canít find my way out.

Hereís the gear I have:

SE84C-EX
Jolida JD9
Mofi StudioDeck
Schiit Bifrost

The SE84C-EX has a single input and for awhile thatís really all I needed. Now that I have this Schiit, Iíd like to use it as well. This currently involves shutting things down, unplugging either the Mofi or Schiit and switching them. Itís a pain. I have a Bellari passive pre that has four inputs it flattens the sound and is worthless.

The rabbit hole consists of adding a preamp that doesnít negatively influence anything. I really like the sound of the SE84C-EX with either the Jolida or DAC going directly into it. Should I contact Decware on options of adding an input? Perhaps someone has crossed that bridge already? The wait list is not for me, Iím too impatient for that. Just being honest with myself. I keep my eyes open for a newer UFO, but thatís a crapshoot. Perhaps someone knows of a good preamp with multiple inputs with a neutral or pass through type sound?

Iíd love to hear any opinions or suggestions. Thanks!

DD,

You're doing brisket, I'm smoking a pork butt. Pulled pork & fried chicken on the July 4th menu, with some good music thrown in. Have a good one.

After a month w/out my stereo system, due to some renovations, she is all back in place and singing to me. Boy did I miss listening to LP's and Qobuz via Roon these last few weeks. It felt like I was on a hunger strike.

Anyway, spirits are high and the capacitors should be fully charged in a few days. Looking forward to some extended listening sessions over the July 4th weekend.

BTW took 3 hours to get everything in place, level the TT, get cabling connected and position the speakers. Lugging the ZMA around is no easy chore 🤣😂.

Three hours is not a bad "reset" time.
Your hunger strike is what I call a "Music Desert." †We have to cross them sometimes, but man is it ever great to find an oasis.
But a month is rough. I hope the renos turned out the way you expected!

I listen as much as I can, but from the time my two kids were too old to share a bedroom, I have not had my own room. They are now drinking age, living in Dad's home, and we have a larger more modern home. No more pulling everything out when I get a chance and putting it all away, after.
All is good!
It took about a month to get things going again after we moved.

It's good to hear, HK!
I hope everyone enjoys some easy time during the July 4th week end!
Seems like we all try to pack too much into one of the biggest holidays of the year. Take some time for fun.

My wife starts her vacation tomorrow, so we are starting our week end right on time. Cool
Guys at her work are mad, "How did YOU get Friday off!??!"
Well, she put in for it last July after some time on a waiting list!

Total cliche, but I just started a brisket marinating which I'll get started smoking very early in the morning.

I'm taking in my JBL's †240Ti's to the technician tomorrow to get new surrounds and upgrade the crossover. I am the original owner. I bought them new 40 years ago. I've had new surrounds replaced twice before, I need to check the coils as well. They weigh 85 pounds each. I don't have a handtruck but I got a couple of dollies. I've got a friend coming up to get me, we're going to bring them down to Analogiique Services before I go to see and hear the exhibit https://youtu.be/o-aNgnBrPRE at Lisson Gallery

Hi Tony. Despite me being slightly younger, I wonít have a choice about the wait.. I think that the Audio Gods Steve keeps referring to have already claimed my soul.. meanwhile, I am no longer the expecting owner of a UFOÖ Spoke to Sarah and swapped it for a 300B. And now we wait
