Re: BC515... OMG

S_stas, Congrats on your new dac. You should not have any regrets. You bought an awesome dac, and I would be very surprised if it does not give you a tremendous amount of musical satisfaction. Remember, due to the high number of caps-- lots of filtering -- allow for sufficient break-in time for opti...

New BC1022 Video Review

Overall, I think it was a very good review. Like many of us, once he started playing music, his listening session went all night long. My experience with the BC1022 was very similar to his, except that I loved the top-end. By far, one of the best amps I have ever heard, and I immensely loved my time...

Gilbert has been kind enough to allow inquiries about my amps to be directed at him: gilbert@bluecircle.com From what i am told, they can ...

As usual, very well written, Bob. As I have stated before on the Forum, the first time I heard the NSL Jr. in my system, not only was it by far the best sound I ever heard, but it was *the* sound I was always striving for. While I couldn't imagine anything better, Gilbert said I might like the NSL b...

Hi Chops, The X1e filter is the big brother to the X0e filter. If you only wanted the six outlets to add sillycone filters, then I strongly encourage you to have the extra filters built in-- not just cost savings, but greater performance benefits. Three 6X sillycones or 18X worth of filtering in my ...

:oops: Very embarrassed-- Thought the SCM 40's were small bookshelf speakers selling for under $1000 USD. My mistake and apologies.

Hi Charles, Nice of you to join the BC Forum. Welcome. I purchased a modified PLC Thingee FX2 with X0e design filter for my father. He loves it and can really hear the difference it brings. While you present all very good options, it boils down to what you feel comfortable spending at this time. The...

Hi Masluck, I can imagine how good your amps, and overall system sounds. You really put your heart into your system. But, don't think for one second that just because you ran out of space in your amp that it is maxed out. Gilbert can either turn it into a monoblock, or daisy chain a crazy, large pow...

Hi Masluck, While I am quite sure the new 2K Series amps are very special, if I can't find my amps a good home, I will take the upgrade path. Since my design has similar foundations to the NSP, I will go that route. I have heard both the NSP and the BC 1022-- same family-- and really like their soun...

Custom BC 206ob+ (monoblocks)

For Sale: 150 watts per channel into 8 ohms. (1) 6922 tube per channel instead of the production standard (2) 6922 tubes. This produced more snap and had greater dynamics, while also producing utterly real vocals. The amps ran flawlessly and easily controlled my 86db speakers. Due to the extremely h...
