This late nineties pairing always had immense authority and rich sweet tones. What it lacked by the highest standards (in my view) were sufficient openness, transparency and clarity. I needed new main capacitors in the power amp due to a fault, and thought while I was at it, I’d ask John to replace the rather loose-gripping mains and XLR sockets in both items. John also advised changing the op-amps in the preamp, and I’m delighted that I decided to trust his wisdom and experience. The pair have lost none of their previous wonderful qualities, but now amaze me with their new-found transparency and speed. I’m thrilled by my system in every way. John certainly knew what he was talking about, did an excellent job, and was a pleasure to meet and to deal with. Many thanks John.
