I just listened to the Oyaide R1 AC outlet last night...


I visited inmate MikeL's place last night (http://cgi.audioasylum.com/systems/663.html) to listen to the Oyaide R1. Mike reported for himself as a response over on Tweakers' (http://www.audioasylum.com/audio/tweaks/messages/143731.html)

As luck would have it the first thing I listened to (a Shaggy SACD) showed the least difference of anything we listened to :) In fact I didn't like the differences in bass response at all at first blush, BUT as we played other things the blacker background's effects became much more obvious and we really enjoyed the additional detail that was apparent with the R1 in everything we played: sometimes more texture in the bass, more detail in cymbals, longer decays and especially in good acoustic recordings: more room ambiance which really added the the sense of being there. Also the soundstage was deeper and wider, something that was even less expected :) Compared to the cost of some other things I've done to my system these seem like a bargain.
