I mean, you have to be doing something right to have this many fans!
Now I need to decide if I want it in Silver or Black :)

Mine are all silver. Five silver boxes of delight. They look great together!

Yes, I am leaning toward silver as well, since my turntable is white... Too bad Rega doesn't make a silver PSU :)

I got the Accenssion on the loaner program and gave it a day to warm up before comparing it to my Conrad Johnson PV2A modified tube phono preamp.  The Accenssion sounded OK but a little srtident and less relaxed than the tube phono.  I was happy I didn't have to spend the money for an new phono.  The next day, I asked my wife to listen to both and compare them.  She picked the second one, the Accenssion.  "You just lost 1500." I told her, but I agreed.  After two days, it sounded much better than the CJ.  More dynamic, larger sound stage and more detail.  I full body experience.  I had ordered a Schiit phono preamp and it arrived yesterday and it's warming up now, but I don'thave high hopes it can compete with the Accenssion.  The Accenssion has more gain than the CJ and so it also has more background hiss.  It's been suggested by Bruce that I try the variable gain on the Accesnssion to minimize the hiss and I'll give that a try.  Another thing I like about the Accension is that there are two outputs and I have two integrated amps (one tube and one solid state with their own speakers and I can use the Accenssion for both without moving interconnects.  I have not tried different interconnects yet and may request a little more time to do that.  I've been using the G.S. interconnects that came with the phono so far to the tube amp and love the sound.  I'll give an update in a few more days of listening, but so far it's been a been a great and exciting experience.
