The units arrived late last week in perfect condition. Excellent packing! Thank you.
I was extremely impressed by their build quality. The pictures do not do them justice. I was equally impressed with how silent they run for transformer-based equipment.
I have currently set them up with the BDC running the Playback Designs Stream-IF module and the BAC1000 running the preamplifier (Halcro dm10) only. Once it arrives in the next month, I intend to run the Taiko Extreme server from the BAC as well.
Immediately after inserting the Plixir units, a lowered noise floor and better detail retrieval was evident. Macro- and microdynamic shadings were also much more striking.
The effects were at first a little non-linear over the frequency range however I expected as both units contain fairly large transformers that a reasonable burn-in period will apply.
I have had a very busy week at work this week so have not had much time to listen, although when I have listened briefly since the first set up, both units appear to be settling in slightly.
I anticipate they will sustain their benefits whilst becoming more natural-sounding over the coming weeks-to-months. I have a lot of friends keen to come over and hear them in action! I'm very happy with this purchase and would love to look into a couple of Elite BAC3000s to supply my amps and the active sections of my speakers (Ypsilon SET100 Ultimates and Evolution MM3s) down the track.
I'll keep you informed of the progress!
Many thanks and kind regards,
