RE: New amplifier: my long journey...

Excellent.....and a job well done.

This just goes to show that you can start off with a list of "definites", but then end up with something totally unexpected. It means keeping an open mind and being prepared to try anything good that you come across..

There should now be very little that could crop up, that would make you regret your decision. The only regret that I have, is that I don't think you heard the Vertere at their best; but if the help from them or their dealer wasn't forthcoming, then it's their loss.

I know, but I gave another opporunity to them but and nobody really followed up on that after my last email...and as you know I don't like chasing people. Plus it would have been complicated for them to fly here and help me with the setup. 

Indeed, this brand was completely unexpected and at the beginning I wasn't considering it that much as it was not as known as all the others...than suddendly they grew on me more and more...and I would miss them every time I would try something else.

In the end I just got the PAD off ebay at a great price!

Good job.

It is worth having a read of the set-up section of the website.......then start at the source and work forwards. I will be very surprised if you don't hear a difference........but what you will have to decide, is if that difference is an improvement or not.

Yes, I hope they sent to me the right stuff as the distributor was VERY unhelpful. It decided to move when I had to escalate and emailed directly Derrick at BR who was willing to ship to me directly and said he wont work with that distributor anymore...

He also said to get back to him if they did not send what is suitable for me. Great person to deal with...

It's often not "what you know", but "who you know", that gets a result.  :grin:
