Many thanks to everyone for the advice. Very lovely to see you guys share your opinions

A home loan would not be quite possible at this point as I am in Singapore

Shall do more reading as I try to make a decision soon

Thanks all!

If in doubt, loan it out.

You only pay outward and return postage.

My two-pennies worth - I have Proprius amps driving PMC floorstanders: plenty loud enough for any music and blockbusting movies. Connected with Spatia cables, and with Graham's interconnects in the system too. Couldn't want for more!

I would recommend either CuSat or Lautus interconnects rather than an adaptor. When ordering you can request RCA to XLR terminations tailored to suit the Proprius input.

Mention should also be made of the Loan Scheme which allows you to listen to all Grahams products in the comfort of your own home for a week or so.

Happy Listening
Ian
Just listen, if it sounds good to you, enjoy it.

GSP/HFC are the best cables I have heard and cheaper than several I sold on from well reviewed brands.

My Proprius amps have worked well in a similar sized room at the listening distances Graham noted. Sounded great and able to go very loud with different sensitivity speakers from 83dB to 91dB per watt. Hope that helps.

Open mind and ears, whilst owning GSP Genera, Accession, Elevator EXP, Solo ULDE, Proprius amps, Cusat50 cables, Lautus digital cable, Spatia cables and links, and a Majestic DAC.

Hi Joe,
   There are many members here who can attest to the effectiveness of Slee cables. I’ve had a few “high end” brands and they do not work as well as the Spatia and Lautus cables made for me by this wonderful company. Furthermore, they will make exactly the cable you need, to the exact lengths you need, without fuss.
Anyone else care to weight in?
Mick.

I'd have expected more replies for you but I guess there are a lot of distractions going on in the world right now keeping our members otherwise occupied.

The 1 volt output will be fine. Adjust the Proprius volume controls accordingly.

The adaptor will work...

...interesting marketing claims: I wouldn't consider brass to be eutectic as zinc melts at a lower temperature than the brass alloy; it looks to be a Neutrik NC3MX which has a black chromium finish over the diecast zinc shell; the phono socket looks just like the Maplin ones I used to buy; and if so, we made one just like it but I didn't like all the wire it takes inside to take up the twist of screwing the modified "strain relief" on...

(nice bit of printed heatshrink though)

We also make unbalanced interconnects available with a choice of plugs including the same Neutrik plug.
