    Heisenberg and Schrödinger were both German physcists/theoreticians in the middle of the 20th C working on quantum theory. Each received a Noble prize. (Back when it meant something.)

    Given Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle I found it amusing someone would name an amplifier 'Heisenberg'.

    Schrödinger had a cat.

    That was the Sonja XV Jr., which is a scaled-down Sonja XV (like an extreme version of the 2.2, instead of 2.3).

    Bill always puts on a good show. His big room with the Sonjas (forget which version) is amazing!

    Do you mean the Stern preamp? Not familiar with Schrodinger preamp from Audionet?

    Many thanks for sharing. Would it be possible for your to share your impressions on the GTT room with Heisenberg amps especially in terms of timbres and microdynamics? thanks
