so you lasted three hours and twenty minutes - I’d say that’s pretty remarkable!

Going back to Elevator/Accession MM after the loan Accession MC shows the Accession MC
has just that little bit extra something - detail & resolution that makes listening more involving.
I'm sure after a little use again with Elevator/AccMM it'll be back to sounding as good as ever.

I'll just add that the Elevator/AccMM have not been powered off when loan Accession MC
has been used.

You've put it very well Richard. I went back to my EXP/AccMM too and found the same thing, very good but you miss what you know you could have. What did it for me was playing back some V-rips/needledrops I did with the loan Accession MC!

Yes, under 3 1/2 hours. We had a short power outtage today, even so the AccMC's sound (or lack of!) will have improved with a day's burn-in I suspect. Good theory. Best to be sure by playing some records tonight...

I am waiting to hear back from a couple of the members who made requests in March to try the Accession MC. It has been out a couple of times now and can be borrowed in the UK by sending me a private message (PM) using the drop menu udner my user name.

You're right there Jon, once an improvement is heard, it's missed when it's gone.
An Accession MC purchase is definitely on the cards, but is a great shame that it will displace
the Elevator which I'd hate to see standing unused on the shelf....Unhappy

After nearly four years of sterling service my Reflex C was given a rest over the festive holiday and replaced with the loan Accession MC + Enigma.

Nothing to add to Paul Szabady's glowing review of the Accession MM as it pretty much sums up my listening pleasure over the past couple of weeks. Certainly experienced the same gamut of emotions. 

An unexpected bonus was the low level of hum compared with the Reflex C (to be fair with the latter it's not discernible when music is playing).

Didn't find time to substitute my PSU1 for the Enigma to evaluate the difference as I was enjoying the loan combination too much!

Thanks to Jon and Graham for the opportunity to sample this superb piece of kit.
