If you've ever had any truly jaw-dropping experiences in audio let's hear about them.\nReal 'OMG' moments :)\n\nFor me, three spring to mind over the past thirty odd years.\n\nBack around 1979 buying a JVC QL7 direct drive. We (grandfather and I) sealed and filled the hollow wooden plinth with concrete, put some big hefty springs into the feet and mounted a Mission 774 arm on it.\nUtter transformation to performance and it was good to start with. I can still remember the buzz as the music started.\n\nSecond must be getting a pair of Impulse H2s.\nDynamics and scale I'd never experienced from anything before. Edge of seat spine tingling stuff at times.\n\nLatest has to be Quad 57s.\nYou want to direct coupled your ears to the music? - 57s will do it in that critical mid band. Part of the jaw drop in this case was the realisation that such performance had been set back in 1957.
