It truly is a beautiful piece.

Charles, not a bad idea, wonder what the turnaround time is for a new one? I bet it's out there as well, I can't imagine they have MxVs just sitting around waiting for dealer orders but I could be wrong. The real issue is trying to not spend money on audio gear right now.....trying to behave myself.

Buck, in a year you probably would make money if you did this. Having upgraded MxV's in unopened factory boxes puts you in the driver's seat, as you can ship them out immediately. I realize that you would be out some funds for a short period of time, but I would find the down time unacceptable. I have decided to keep my 1.25's just in case I have a tube failure with my new 3500's to prevent down time. I had a good offer but decided against it.

In today's world, who knows when you will ever see the unit within a reasonable length of time, making upgrades very difficult. I think manufacturers must guarantee the upgrade time to make it feasible or the dealer must provide a demo.

Best

Charles

Congrats ! Wow 2 months. I was hoping closer to 6 weeks. Will have to get in touch with them in October. I’m out of the country month of November so plan was to send in a week before and hope to recieve a week after I return or close to it.
What difference are you noticing most with the upgrade ?

Better control top to bottom. Better detail retrieval. Deeper soundstage.
