  1. Hi all, I am trying to figure out if this will work, I haven't tried connecting everything up yet. I am wanting to use the Myryad as a preamp because it has a remote and the Power amp doesn't My system is as follows: Yamaha WXC-50 (in player mode) Burson Conductor HA-160D (via Coaxial cable) Myryad Z240 integrated amp (connected by RCA via the "DAC out" of the Burson) HH V500 power amp (to be connected via the "Bi amp out" on the Myryad, using Rca's and 1/4 inch mono jacks for left and right) Speakers are Proac studio 125 and a single REL T1 Subwoofer (connected via the high level cable) I will be connecting the speakers via the HH power amps binding posts and not the Myryad. I was also thinking about making a speakon connection for my Speaker cables and using an adapter to XLR outputs on the HH for the Proacs and the binding posts for the REL The Proacs are 8 ohm speakers recommended for use with amplifiers 20w-150w output The HH V500 produces 150w at 8 ohms I would like to know if the "bi amp" out on the Myryad is ok to use instead of buying a preamp? Is the HH V500 a good match for the Proac's? Thanks in advance for your assistance
  2. I thought I might do a write up on the Myryad Z series since I liked the Z142 amp so much I went and bought the Z114 cd player. It has been burning in since friday afternoon and I have just had a preliminary listening session. My conslusion is a bit out there so I'll take it slow and work up to it. Anyone who has been keeping track of my "addicts guide" thread knows that the Z142 amp and I are friends for life. It is an amp that has surpassed all integrateds I have heard before, some others have come close but none are quite as much fun to listen to as the Myryad and it does this with only 40 odd watts, 2 transistors per channel and 10,000uf of capacitance per channel. Only the Denon AE1510 had less capacitance and it ran a proprietry "high current circuitry" design that gave it very high levels of punch and bass. When you look under the case the quality is there to see, toshiba transistors, all rubicon capacitors (except for the 2 big ones, which are Nichicon) and no op amps in sight (ok, one, but it operates the servo that controls the remote volume control so it is out of the music loop). And yes, as claimed by Myryad there are seven separate voltage regulators, two each in the power amp circuitry sections, one each in the preamp sections and one on the power board (Myryad kindly label the different sections of the circuitboard, very handy for curious souls like me). The Myryads main claim to fame is its speed, it is so fluid in the mid range that the music just dances out of it in a flurry of sonic joy. It has nice bass that is fast, tight and deep and very well controlled and smooth highs that elate rather than grate on the the senses. In short, I love it! So, what about the cd player? Again it is very well built, rubicon capacitors throughout and seven voltage regulators, all well and good and similar to the amp. But!!! Audio companies like Myryad develope these components with the intent of them operating together, yes? So if there is any one cd player that the Z142 should sound absolutely awesome with it should be the Z114, or at least that is what I thought. As it turns out they sound pretty average when used together. That fluidity and speed are not utilized at all, the bass deepens and fills out but at the loss of the speed and control the amp displays with my test cd player. And the sound gains that "upsampled to the nth degree" aspect, it softens to the point where it can't annoy but can't truly elate either. Together the Z's sound alright, not terrible or anything, but they sound so full and bass heavy and completely unlike the sound I get from my consonance cd120 feeding the Z142. I think this is the sound that Myryad is aiming for, very inoffensive but very processed, smooth and bass heavy and, in my opinion, dull! Together they have no life, they sound like an old married couple who are going through the motions but are just tired of being together. I will try the Z114 player with a few different amps and see if I can get more of a feel for what will work better with it later. Right now I want to put forward an opinion on the Z142 amp. How (or why) does a company make an amp that is this good, has this much potential, and then partner it with a player that drags it down rather than makes the most of its abilities? Is the amp a mistake? It can't have been designed this well by accident, can it? It is my opinion, and this is somewhat ironic since I bought both brands from the same place, that the Myryad separates should be partnered with dryer sounding equipment. Gear with less bass and more air and snap. I think a rotel cd player would work rather well with the Z142 amp, and the Z114 player would work better with a RA1520 amp. I certainly would not use both Myryads together, unless I had very fast, punchy bookshelf speakers that needed a little extra bass. I'll continue this thread once I've tried the Z114 with a few other amps. Cheers!
  3. Looking for one of these that's in good condition. I'm in Perth, WA.
