Victor said he hand dyes each paper to order so there may be slight color variances. I hope that mine aren’t too different from each other. Can you show a photo of your DAC? Does it have backlighting?I got the green paper on the DAC. I'll be ordering an Ether and after I sell some surplus gear. Mr. Tsukahara, aka Mr. Sparkler, worked for Sony during the inception of SACD. The current mode CD transport is on the radar too.
I was wondering about just that and dug into the website specs to confirm:Bear in mind their tuner may only cover the 76-95 MHz portion of our 88-108MHz broadcast band.
Yes, their smaller model of speaker uses a similar Mark Audio driver to mine, with similar efficiency rating of 85-ish. Their larger speaker is 88-ish db efficient. I too suspect that if they're selling this little 10W amp and offering those speakers, it must be at the very least a good pairing.I really love the look of the Sparkler amp. I suspect it would sound outstanding with the right speakers. But that said, I don't think I would buy a 7 watt per channel amp without hearing it or if I was going to be swapping speakers a lot. Not a criticism of the amp in any way. But there are not a lot of speakers built to run well on 7 watts. Also, isn't the driver for their own speakers from markaudio. If yes, I suspect they must work pretty well. Are your markaudios less efficient than theirs?
