Nice. Good pic of the old & the new. Do you run it much in Class A? Lots of heat for an old unit when you do. I always put a muffle fan over each the heatsink vents on my CA-2010 when running any time in Class A.

Actually I was advised against using Class A as the benefits would not be that much, and it's only 15W on the CA-1000 and my Mani-2 Signature are very power hungry (I actually fried the Lavardin IT Reference integrated of my best friend because of that... ). Even in AB, I don't push my speakers too much as I am afraid I could damage the amplifier. As much as I love those speakers, they are always a thing trying to circumvent their power needs. If they were 8 ohms that would be perfect as I really love their sound. I am slowly looking for an upgrade but the next speakers will have to be 8 ohms. I was thinking about the PMC twenty5.24; the bass response seems similar and they are not demanding in amplification. Montreal Audio Show is coming in 4 weeks so I am getting excited to go there. I will be more in purchasing mode than the last 2 years

Here are some pictures of before and after the modification, which consisted to remove the old cord lamp and replace it with a AC/IEC socket. The ground is not connected inside but the ground wire of the cable is still helpful for some technical reasons I don't remember... It works, all is good

Beautiful room and system. With the new room you have set yourself up for many years of gradual improvements which I have found is best way to enjoy. The high end is a wonderful journey that only a few take and appreciate. Again congrats!

Nicely done. Have a pair of Kenwood L-07M monoblocks inbound. Other than a recap of the power supply, plan to replace the period lamp-cord 2-conductor AC line with a proper IEC plug on each of them.

BTW - did you notice the Yamaha B-2 amp that is listed in the Classifieds? Is a terrific piece (the YB-2 refers to same back when my hobby was collecting and refurbishing them about 20yr ago).

Yes, I did notice the B-2 for sale, but for the time being I plan to stick with my CA-1000 after all the modifications I have done so far. Later, I will probably go with a Yamaha A-S2100 or 3000. Ever since I heard the Yamaha gear two years ago at the Montreal Audio Show, I was hooked to their natural sound. Money no object for vintage gear, I would like to have a nice restored pair of NS-1000M by Kenrick Sound in Japan (or the newer NS-5000 )
