Customer Feedback on the LDR3x from a DIY Build
« Reply #2 on: 26 Dec 2013, 07:18 pm »
Received this wonderful note over Christmas from a customer in Portugal who finally finished his DIY LDR3x preamp project. Thought I'd share. Here it is verbatim (with permission).

"CONGRATULATIONS, MORTEN! The LDRx is quite a revelation with exceptional musical qualities!I must stress that I've been using a Vishay bulk foil plus Holco shunt resistors,silver wired stepped attenuator for the last 20 years(Audio Synthesis' PASSION) and that this unit was highly rated. Indeed, it is a very, very good passive control unit and I've been quite satisfied with it. Well, it is quite an achievement that the LDRx does everything better in a clear audible way!The music simply sounds fuller,warmer with more body and detail.Everything sounds more natural as if no electronic gear is being used. No small achievement in a system that combines a digital source, a digital 3 way crossover, solid state amplification and an all dipole loudspeaker arrangement comprising Quad's ESL63 electrostatics, a pair of Volt bass/mid drivers and a Gradient subwoofer. No nasty boxes at all! I enclose a picture of my LDRx in all its glory,showing its guts and surrounded by Flower Power. Well,what can I say? Thank you, Morten and Merry Christmas!" - Francisco Fragoso

Merry Christmas indeed!
