Virtue audio sensation m451 upgrades
« on: 2 Jul 2018, 06:23 am »
Hi there,
I am a new member and I have joined since I have been an audiophile for a long time and enjoy our hobby as well as all the fine hardware that is available for enjoying the music.
Also, I am hoping for some help in suggesting places for upgrades to my Virtue Audio Sensation M451.
I know that Mr. Dodd has passed away so need advice on other companies or individuals who would be able to offer upgrades for Virtue Audio M451.
Thanks
Alex

Welcome Alex.  Since you mentioned Gary Dodd, I assume your unit has the Dodd buffer.  An easy upgrade is to do a bit of tube rolling.  There's a world of different sounds with all the tube options.  I like Valvo 7dj8's with D getters.  What tube are you currently using?

Hi Scott,
Unfortunately my unit doesn't have the Dodd bufer and I would like to find someone who could upgrade my unit with the buffer or some other way so therefore asking for names of people/companies that will do mods on Virtue Audio products.
Thanks

Hi, l own two Sensations- one M451 this has upgraded caps ( Clarity Caps) and a Furutech aftermarket internal fuse ( and this believe it or not makes a small but worthwhile difference, l also own a M901 this has Russian PIO Caps..... both provide a very nice upgrade from the stock Virtue caps, what PSU do you have, each Virtue PSU presents a different voice..... do some research and enjoy.
