I did this hearing with Ayon, Tubelover and Lowther at my friend Mr.N's
Mr.N's system configurqtioan is as follows
: Ayon CD-T
: Ayon Skila
: 26 DHT Preamp
: RS-241 SE Power Amp
Active Subwoofer : Pro Ac E A R1

To find out how far
GC8 can improve the sound qualitym we connected GC8 with Mr. N's system
one by one starting from the CD Transport, DAC, Preamp, Power Amp and
finally on the subwoofer.
After completing GC8 connection to the system, we listened carefully to
the improvement provided by GC8 on improving the sound quality in the system.
Connection to CD Transport
The connection on the transport CD is done by XLR cable, which is only
connected to the ground (Pin 1), this is because there is no Female RCA terminal
on the CD Transport
According to Mr. N connections on the CD Transport provide audible
results but not too significant. Feels like the fog that surrounds the sound
is lost, micro details are clear in this condition.
Connection to Ayon Skila DAC
According to Mr. This connection in DAC Ayon Skila is the one that provides
the most improvement, in various cases, there is improvement starting from
details, micro dynamic and bass which are also more punch / tight
Connection to 26 DHT Preamp
According to Mr. N connection in Preamp DHT 26 provides changes in mid
and vocal regions. In my opinion the character of the vocal sound displayed
by the system becomes smoother as it should be displayed by an SE amplifier
with a DHT tube.
Connection to the RS241 power amp
In this connection we feel that there are not many changes that
are made so it is rather difficult to comment,
Connection to Active subwofer
We do this connection to the RCA input terminal of the subwoofer.
At this connection we feel the bass sound produced becomes more tight.
