Accuphase Tuners - T-100 vs the rest
|Posted on December 11, 2007 at 21:18:09|
I have just added to my Accuphase tuner collection, and now have a T-108 to add to my T-101 and T-107. They all sound fantastic, with the T-107 and 108 sounding virtually identical (as you would expect), while the T-101 sounds a little better - less three dimensional, but smoother and very slightly sweeter.
The question I have is whether the T-100 is really any material improvement on the other 3 tuners mentioned above. You would think that 3 Accuphase tuners would be more than enough for anyone, but I just can't get the idea of owning a T-100 out of my head.

And, I looked but you don't have any antenna details at Inmate Systems!
So what do you have?

|I can't begin to describe just how much i love my T-100. I have a T-101 too, and will very likely buy a T-1000 in the next year. The T-100 is just a magical tuner, capable of allowing you to completely forget that you are listening to a tuner and not a cd or vinyl.|

The T-100 is a superlative piece and well worth acquiring at the money.
I also owned 109 and 105 - there was little point in keeping them (to my ears) when put head to head with the T-100 - which was, and remains the Japanese definition of a 'laboratory grade reference tuner' - Accuphase did not take prisoners...
However the T-100 (like any great source) is system/cable sensitive. The same is true (to a greater extent, I believe) with the deceptively natural & musical Marantz 10b. You merely deeply inhale the aroma of magic through a competent system, but in a sympathetic system... oh my... the 10b sings it's heart out and hits the notes like no other, - and then you really are dining out with silver service :-)
The juices are flowing now!

|Any idea where I could get my T-101 looked at? Low output is the problem. Schematic would be helpful!|

|Accutech in Gardena, California is an authorized Accuphase service center. They have done excellent work for me in the past. I have a T-101 & T-100 and love them both.|

Is Accutech still in business If not who are the new Accuphase Gurus?
I need to get a T-101 Aligned.
Thanks for any info you can provide.
