It is a very good tube pre-amp maker, but not so much talk in hifi circle ?

Any comments from owners or you experience its sound, please share your view :)

Thanks

有 ...

Use them since 90's. First with 2D, then in a house broke-in, someone stole it.

Now on 3a since late 90's.
Only repair once because of the gold phono board busted.

I use Bimar 6922 on the line stage and Tunsgram 6922 on phono. Many BugleBoy or Telefunken but Bimar and Tunsgram has decent microphonic properties so I use them instead.

The power supply does emit some audible hum now, I suspect I need to have it look at eventually. Problem with AI is extremely slow and no response from manufacture. One time I had the unit sat in the factory for 1.5 years waiting for them to change the face plate to a chrome gold faceplate which I paid for but never recieve !! Poor services probably related to low adoption in the hifi circle ! They are such a bargin in the used market world. I use them and like them over Conrad Johnson Premier 10, PV9, PV10, PV12, Counterpoint & Mastisee Reference which I own at some point in time.

Many thanks to CADiver Hing for detail sharing of owning AI M3A experience..

Looking at the internal pictures (thanks), the components used inside are very top grade items. No doubt about its sound quality it can produce. Market value still going for 25K to 30K.

Looks like the popularity of AI is affected by its technical support duration. Could you share why the photo stage damaged ? Is it due to MM input into MC stage by accident ?

Thanks (Any other C Hing playing AI care to share ?)

架機日日到用咁濟,忽然有日左邊phono無聲,所以大概係硬件老化失校,唔係人為錯誤:-)
美國二手市場只要千三,四就買到。留意下啦,不過無110/220轉電制,要開機整。用得過,就算做backup 都低,但家時亦不小高質素大陸機一樣咁低用。。。。。。

I see that from the pics that it is designed by John Curl. No wonder it sounds so good.

The phono section that has the pre-preamp gain for MC was designed by John Curl. That's what is usually called the "gold card" as the PCB are gold plated and is gold in color.

Only 塊gold board係design by John curl. 原來Preamp線路係design by 另外一個老番高手,家唔記得左個名,art 係生意人買下audible illusion,其實佢麻麻,所以幾十年來無新產品,無upgrade,部機本身唔錯就連修理都無得做,我個用左廾幾年係到舊年個gold board零件至香左,。

我的Audible Illusion Modulus。用了差不多三十年。現在仍使用中,維修過一次,現在開始又有些雜音。好聲。

我用Modulus 3,後級用Space and Time,啦叭Spica TC-50,非常好既音樂感,低頻份量亦唔覺不足,機器頗熱,用左幾年之後,分體電源四隻膠腳都溶哂,現在三件都入番箱,聽怡通前,mosfet PA power amp,DIY 啦叭,因為Space and Time燒左,得閑會修理好,希望到時三兄弟重見天日。
