I’m also interested to hear how original TT differs from the new offerings? There’s many of these available second hand but not in Finland I think.
I can’t demo the 40A. My dealer won’t order them unless I commit to buy them, and I kind of understand him. So that’s adding to my dilemma here. Of course I’ve listened to the passive version for five years so what could go wrong?
I didn’t know xlr-xlr connection is worse if the source isn’t truly balanced? Brooklyn DAC+ has balanced output also and that’s how the 19A is connected currently. Any more info on this? I’d probably go for bluejeanscable Belden 1800F and maybe order Mogami 2549 also to compare. I’ve had great success with bjc offerings before.
