Hi All,

I want to shout out to John for organising a Reflex C and psu1 and Accession M + enigma via the excellent U.K. loan scheme! Many thanks indeed.

I’ve had the Reflex on for a couple of days, and it’s impressive - a fuller sound all round is my way of summing up in a short sentence. There really is a marked improvement from the built in phono of the Mac. Yet to try the Accession, looking forward to hearing the difference. 

I suppose I should tell what equipment I’m using;

Technics SL1100 (1971)with a Denon 103r

McIntosh C52 preamp
McIntosh MC152 power amp
McIntosh MCD600
Klipsch Forte 3 speakers

Early Retirement presents before you ask Wink

With the Accession M I’ll be using a Nagaoka MP200

This is the first time of dipping my toe with a separate phono stage and it’s surprisingly good so far, I’ve had a serious case of the hifi upgrade bug since a young lad, I think that I’ve found my last system which hopefully will see me outLOL

Obviously after the demo of both I’ll make a purchase of either, decisions, decisions.

Hi and welcome
That is one serious system you got there. I would like to say I'm surprised a separate phono stage as impressed you (with your system) but I'm not.

Hi Jonathan,

Thanks for the welcome! You're right to be surprised, so was I, never thought that it would be such an improvement. Very happy with the Reflex C so far actually using it with the Enigma ps, Accession is going to have to be a lot better to justify it's premium Ermm

Happy to take suggestions on settings etc.

Many thanks in advance for any replies Smile

Welcome aboard. If you like the Reflex C which is very good I hope you enjoy the AccMC as much as I do mine. The PSU1 Enigma is impressive with mine and was on the Elevator EXP I trialled it with.

Hi Jon,

Cheers for the welcome, not sure I’m doing this the right way around, but as I have MM and MC cartridges ( Denon 103r 301 mk2 MC) ( Nagaoka MP 200 AT 440mlb MM) trying to cover all bases?
The Accession I have on loan is the M version, which is warming up ready to swap in. As I’m enjoying the Reflex so much I don’t feel the need to switch as yet Smile
