Strangely (not at all) enough because she could not espress what was different, she started to tell me what I had been fumbling there : I connected the Clairixa.

Yes! A direct connection makes the Lush sound a bit like the Clarixa->Phisolator.

It is all a step backwards, unless you like the preciseness of the Clairixa of course.

Not a step backwards in my two systems, IMO. I can't go back to the Phisolator now... not with the Mach II anyway.

Hi Mani,

I agree with your observation on the SQ with the Phisolator bypassed. The mids & highs are a lot clearer, however they have lost a bit of sparkle.

The lows are deeper & firmer though a tad louder.

Overall this set up is more musical.

I’m going to continue with this set up for a longer time to reconfirm my observations across different genre.

Best regards

Arvind

I tried a comparison last night--not extensive between Lush with Phisolator, and without.  Mach II audio PC.  At least in my system, the overall SQ with Phisolator is better integrated and more "real."  Will listen some more and try to qualify in some greater detail what I observe.
