I am not one of those serial 'upgraders'. I tend to keep my equipment, until or unless there is a somewhat clear path to upgrade to, and I can 'afford' it. Been through some 'changes' lately that others may find interesting.
To make a very long story short, I was in t-amp land with my maggies and my Transporter and all was well for some years. Cables were fine with Audioquest, and Silver Bullet interconnects. Did some tweaks on the maggies crossover, and caps etc in the t-amp. Well crap, I succumbed to the tube itch and bought a tube preamp kit (bottlehead). That 'changed' everything. My t-amp was shown up as being the lightweight that I knew it was so the upgrade impulse continued to the Emotiva. Very nice move, all is good. Well, not sure exactly what moved me to get a JPS labs interconnect, but that changed everything again. That led to JPS speaker cable and one more interconnect pair for the preamp.
Well, crap again, The JPS wire has exposed my tube pre for what it is. Out it goes, now Im taking a hard listen to the Transporter as preamp. Quite nice indeed. I ruled it out some moons ago that was before the above changes.
So, the Transporter survives to live on! Thats some goood kit!
