I am the proud owner of the second RWA modified Olive product. I have the Musica (160 GB) I have just recieved my unit and while the unit is certainly not broken in there are certain truths that are self evident. The immediate first impression is that the sound is larger than the RWA modified SB2 that I was using. By larger I mean both wider and deeper. For lack of a better word the sound is just fuller. The soundstage deapth is extroidinary and instrument placement is readily apparent. All the detail is there and what is very important to me there is no loss of PRAT.
In as much as I have posted on this forum that using the SB2 along with a Dual Mono Clari-T with Paper in Oil caps had given me rhe best sound I had in my 35 years of being an Audiophile; I do not take it lightly when I say the RWA Musica provides appreciably better sound.
The customer support I have recieved from Vinnie is nothing less than exemplary.
The RWA Olive modifications are approximately 3x as expensive as the SB modifications. Whether or not a person feels that the sound is 3x better is up to them. That it is better is beyond dispute; as for myself I feel that it is clearly worth it.
