Good afternoon Graham,

I recently bought the Accession M with PSU-1 and Lautus ICs after loaning the M with a PSU enigma. In my system I cannot tell the difference in performance between the PSUs but I can tell the difference for sure between my Atlas ICs and the Lautus ICs, the Lautus are more detailed and bass is better (deeper). See if you can loan the Lautus ICs you may be surprised as I was.

Hi Graham, 

I would wait a little bit before making any conclusion. As others as said before, the phono need a warm up time. 

Cheers!

Good morning all thanks for the info, the it cable is new so i understand they need time to burn in  also have been using my PSU 1 that has been driving my GS Solo for over six months so that  is fine and i never power down my system. Played more vinyl last night and getting better especially early  seventies using the switching on the front. I would be interested to hear what interconnects you all use any more info on Enigma PSU please . Thanks again may be it is just in  my head that i think some thinks missing all have a nice weekend as best you all can and stay safe    Graham

Hi Graham,
  You know how with digital audio, the better it gets it seems to get “quieter”? The reduction in noise and glare via better power supplies and cables, better isolation, better files, etc, makes the whole experience more relaxing and engaging, like you’re not fighting to hear the music though the glare? You can listen at lower volumes, hear far more detail and subtlety of colours. 

Well for me, that’s what the Enigma did over the PSU1. Yes, there was an immediate difference but in my system it was subtle. The real advantage came over the longer term satisfaction through extended listening sessions. I could hear more detail with feeling like I had to turn it up, and I started hearing those low level things like the floor of the soundstage and the big acoustic of an orchestral recording. Pop was less shouty, too. 

All the best,
Mick.

Good morning all ,the Accession mm has been returned today as well as Cusat50 interconnect and i have placed an order for both + the enigma power supply so now a 4 week wait but i know it will be worth it . The cable burnt it after about 5 days and  the sound was much improved deeper bass  openness around the drums /cymbal and it was a good even sound stage . Swapping to the Chord interconnect gave much deeper bass but a harshness in voice especially in female and the cymbal sounded very tinny so will be very happy with the Cusat 50  so thats it thanks for all your advice .All stay safe from Graham C
