Thank you for the kind comments!!
I am glad you are still enjoying your Focals. That tells me that I made a good investment. Looking at set-ups like yours, "Franin" and a few others inspired me to get the speakers that I have.
A dealer not to far from me had the 1037's on display, so I made numerous trips auditioning them until I made my decision to get the 1038's.
So far they look and sound great. I currently have them hooked up to a pc via usb dac (m2tech young
) and a SS (pass) 2 channel amp.
All I need now is a decent pre-amp with ht bypass. So far I might get a pass pre-amp or try out some tube pre-amp. The only one I've heard paired with a SS amp was one of the Arc LS models, The PrimaLuna Dialogue 3
, and the Odyssee Candela
. It will probably take me a while before I pull the trigger. Which means I have a lot of demo'ing to do.
