End of the World Music System
Franz Hinterlehner and his pal Emanuel came from Austria, last weekend... puffing and sweating, but also laughing and having good time, we worked for several hours... thanking Franz's skill and knowledge and friendship and Emanuel's patience and skill, Gotorama is finally completed, folks... a fully bloom reality.
I'm in tears (of joy)... using the someway user unfriendly, yet supremely effective, transparent and... why not, perfect, I dare, TacT RCS 2.2 XP... well, now Gotorama uses Thomas Mayer crossover for Goto's three upper ways and TacT's 2.2 crossovering feature: Franz and myself choose the cool 10th order (yes, it's 60 db/octave) slope between GOTO SG 570 and S-150 horn and Elodis' TGE bass horn and THE RESULT IS SIMPLY, PLAINLY SAID STUNNING... the Mayer's crossover uses as a (not so cheap:-)) "buffer" the Mayer's 801A line-stage preamp, while the WE 437/Tango EQ 600 LCR phono stage goes straight to one of TacT's analog inputs.
TacT is also used as a 192Khz DAC... maybe I could also squeeze a nice coffee from it:-)))!
The sound is, on the best of the nine pre-sets saved and stored in the RCS, superb, right, airy and extremely dynamic, speedy as the light, low-end is clean and natural, unboomy as it can be... and I'm lacking words to describe how such a system is able to sound virtually everything, from a solo acoustic guitar harmonics to Taiko japanese BIG drums and large orchestra or organ at 120 db SPL.
I reached Hakata!
