Adieu / Farewell

Forgot about the phono physical connection. Turntable and phono preamp are turned off 99.9% of the time. The other .1%, I'm listening to vinyl which is a noise problem of a different magnitude.

Just put 7.1.3 back on for the first time since 8.0 came out. Certainly takes the edge off, need some time to get it in my head.

Hopefully I can get a 220 Pro this weekend for comparison.

Start listening after 30 minutes of playing music. Warmer Devialet) warmer soundSmile

7.1.3 is usually holter than 8.0 or 10.0. In my case it sounds best when class A temp. Is around 45...

The hotter the better yeah. That goes for any firmware even.
That's why mine is always on. Warm sounding right from the start.

I took a glance last night and mine was about 40 after using it all night.  I must be lenient on the volume knob.  Big Grin

Got home and been listening at normal listening volumes for over an hour. Class A = 37 degrees.

Obviously my Sabrinas are rather easy to drive.

So what about sound with 7.1.3?

Warmer and a little more laid back.  I'm going to still keep test driving alternatives.  My dealer isn't responding to me anymore about demoing a 220 Pro, I guess the fact that I'd never buy it is an issue.

Like you I decided not "PRO" the 7.1.3 is very good. I wish my 800 had more power but overall it's very very good amp. Thx again for pushing the 7.1.3 for so long
