New GY 703N Phono Stage

Just arrived, best phono preamp I've ever heard. Predecessor BC 703 was excellent but this one transcends it: full, clear, natural, and absolutely silent. An absolutely quiet phono stage? Yup.

First Post from Amherst Audio

As my first contribution to the Forum Reborn, I thought it would make sense to restate the news for for those who have yet to hear it that Gilbert has agreed to serve as a custom designer for Amherst Audio. This will definitely be a part-time project: “I am enjoying my retirement too much to return ...

Response to Clave

As you know or at least can deduce from my writings over time, I believe that 'subjective' descriptions of what we hear are the only ones worth attending to. No one I've ever read has ever been able to account for what gear sounds like with 'objective' descriptions; and what gear sounds like is the ...

NSI G, First Report

Despite the fact that very few of you have heard Gilbert’s basic 002i integrated amplifier, let alone that amp with its External Power Supply, it remains the best reference for describing the new NSI amp(s). The higher powered 022i has different roots, resulting in a somewhat meatier, more romantic ...

Re: Adjustable tube hybrids -- what are your experiences?

George, Thanks for getting the conversation back on track. When I listen to my NSC/002i-ESP I'm not especially aware of The Truth so much as just hearing something more like the sound of 'live' music (clarity, presence, 'natural warmth') than I've heard elsewhere. I know it's a mimic of reality but ...

Re: Adjustable tube hybrids -- what are your experiences?

Well I guess those in the audience who have read what I have to say on this matter on my website, here, and on Audio Asylum can be the judge of that. "...that Gilbert's in his "finest hour" because his "current focus" has been on developing pure solid state preamps and amps" and "those who continue ...

Mr. Masluck

This has the distinctive sound of preemptively defensive knickers in a twist. If one prefers enriched and deeply saturated colors and other forms of romanticism to what instruments actually sound like, he need not tilt about at imagined purists, he can just spin the variable harmonic distortion inje...

Re: NSI - the first impressions

On driving the NSW with the preamp output of an NSI, I was thinking of using the NSI in place of my NSC. If that's not a good idea, I'll just let the NSC continue to service the NSW and leave the NSI to its own devices!
