OK guys - after reading another couple of rave reviews regarding other Graham Slee phono stages I decided to simply take the plunge and order the Accession + Enigma... ClapClapClap 

You will hear back from me as soon as I have had the chance to audition them!

Hi all,

I'm looking to upgrade my (modified) Rega RP3 to either the Planar 8 or perhaps even the new 10.  I'm assuming that at this price level I should be looking at the Accession MC + Enigma but would welcome people's opinions on the following:

- Can anyone comment on the performance improvement of the Enigma on the Accession MC?
- I already have a couple of PSU1s (for my Reflex M and Solo) so am assuming that I could do a side-by-side comparison of Enigma vs PSU1 (or has the PSU1 been upgraded in the past few years?)
- Has anyone compared the Accession MC+Enigma to the Rega Aria or Aura? (I previously swapped out my Rega Font for the Reflex M so am a definite Graham Slee fan so wondering whether just to take the plunge with the Accession MC or run a comparison first - any experience on this one?

Oh, and interconnect - I may upgrade that while I'm at it... what's everyone using these days (I currently use a mix of Chord and GS)

Sorry for the barrage of questions!

David

Hi David, I helped with testing of the beta PSU1 that became the Enigma PSU 1 so tried it with my phono stages. It was a big upgrade for the Elevator EXP and Accession MC, and an improvement on the Reflex M compared to a standard PSU1. On another member's advice I tried the beta with my Majestic dac and was so impressed I traded up to another Enigma.

You'll find postings with our forum's search for Enigma.

Many thanks, I'll take a look...

On a related topic, has anyone tried/would recommend mains conditioning - I've always stayed away from it in the past... would it help or hinder the Enigma?

The Accession MC+Enigma combo takes Graham's phono amps into a different league IMO. The loan scheme is the way to go to find out for yourself - and borrow some of Graham's interconnects too Wink.
