Wow!
« on: October 27, 2020, 07:03:12 AM »
I completed the assembly of my Moreplay last week and all I can say is WOW! It sounds fantastic. The bass and treble are well defined, midrange beautifully detailed without being shouty, and no batteries to mess with. I have been using a Quickie for years and enjoyed the sound quality it produced, but in my opinion the Moreplay is a large step up. So far I have used it with Quicksand, SEX 2.1 and a PP EL84 Motorola amp. I am hearing details that I have never heard before and the separation between vocals, instruments and channels is "just fantastic"! Next amps to be used is the Seductor, SEX 2.0 and a pair of Ampex 6973 mono blocks.

It's too bad all the shows and meets have been cancelled, this would have been very popular to hear! As always it was fun to build and even better to listen to. The best advice that I can give is read the manual before you start anything and most importantly take your time, you do not need to set any land speed records assembling the kit. Many thanks to the Bottlehead team for such an exciting product!

I finished my Moreplay this past weekend; after taking my time a couple hours a day.  Definitely echo the recommendations to take your time, read the excellent step-by-step instructions, and don't hurry.  Years ago I built my first Bottlehead kit, the Foreplay.  I still have that amp, and use it on occasion, it's still a winner.  Later, the Quickie was put into play.  But the Moreplay takes this function to a whole new level!  Like Cary has said, there is more "there" without being aggressive, detailed without being distracting, and very well balanced in it's presentation.  I found the soundstage to be wide, and deep...very nice!  Although I only have a dozen hours on it so far, I'm hooked!

Thanks Doc, PJ, PB and all who worked this up and brought it to fruition.  Keep up the good work!
