The Kimbers are great bang for the buck and will re-sell easily, making this a low cost interim step.

BTW, a HUGE congrats on the new preamp!!
Thanks for the congrats, Randy.

I thought it over and concluded I don't want to play the upgrade game with the cables and I don't want to buy cables that are not on the same level as my equipment.

I will continue to burn-in the preamp and purchase the WW loom after I attend the Newport Beach Audio show in two weeks.

Thanks to everyone for your suggestions!

Randy,

Have you heard any of the TADs, the Sasha or the Rockport Avior on our equipment?

I heard the Avior yesterday at the Newport Beach Audio show and it sounded great on the VK-32 and a smaller BAT amp (didn't get the model).

The TADs and Sasha were incredible as well! I hear the Sasha won best of show.

I'm sure one the the above will be my next speaker.

Default Thanks for stopping by Ray -

The Rockport Avior's were hooked up to the Bat REX monoblocks and REX pre-amp at the Newport show. I had a VK32SE and VK255SE on display. Thank you for the nice comments about our sound. The 15x17x8 foot hotel room was an acoustic nightmare for us. I was suprised to get the level of sound we did all things considered... I invite you to come hear them again at our showroom in San Clemente I also have the Rockport Mira II here and they sound great-
