The recording that lit me up the most was the Guarneri's recording of the Ravel string quartet. The Scherzo was so vivid that I'm convinced John Dalley was using two fingers at times in the fast pizzicato passage. That takes a lot of clarity from the Accession/Elevator to reveal. 

It a fabulous recording, but hard to find. I searched all over to find a copy, but so worth it with the Accession. It's like peeling about 5 layers off the onion and really hearing what's there.

Cheers for quartet listening with the Accession/Elevator.

I'm going to add just two more observations about the Accession/Elevator duo I've been auditioning. First of all I've been struck with how much I like the sound of my speakers and amps, and then it hit me. This combination of phono preamp has opened up the possibilities of the rest of my system. Obviously, my former preamp was a bottleneck and had limited the range of sonic possibilities. So a wonderful discovery that Graham Slee products actually improved my whole system, by beginning with a front end that placed no restriction on what comes downstream. Naturally, I believe vinyl sounds more real and life-like than digital, but the speakers sound better as well. That's quite a feat. Somehow the ceiling of believability that one experiences with CD's is removed with vinyl and the Accession. Clearly I'm totally, as they say in Graham's neck of the woods, gobsmacked.

The affirmation of these observations came a couple days ago when I had a colleague (a fantastic violinist and rising superstar in the early music world) over and we listened to a couple of LP's. The Ravel quartet, again, where he confirmed that he could hear the two finger pizzicati in the cello and 2nd violin, and then the Mehta/LA Phil Planets, where he burst out saying "Wow, I've never heard a system where you could hear all the different instruments in their different places in the orchestra. The horns up high in the left, the trombone and trumpets on the right, and the winds in their different places." I couldn't agree more. The Accession makes me, and my friends, say "Wow."

Thanks again, Graham. Oh, and I should say, James Taylor sounds so real it's spooky.
