The test setup

We’ve had the Sauropoda in a few set-ups, but mostly in our reference system. The setup can be found below

The test setup

Now the Sauropoda can power all kinds of devices. However, we mainly listened to the Sonnet Pasithea on it. The reason we did not have the Pass Labs pre-amp on it, for example, is that the Pass does not like fitlers. Also, the test becomes unnecessarily complex if we are going to connect lots of different devices to it. We know that the Sonnet lets us hear a lot and that it is fine to use in a filter. However, we strongly recommend that you do not just buy filters: always try them at home on your equipment!
