    My buddy does not care for Audio Research and Conrad Johnson but he really likes Prima Luna. He says it is one of the best sounding amps he has heard.

    Well, I have to admit my new amps are not going to work for me. They are very clean and open but the bass never came around in my system. I fiddled with speaker positioning and put all Cardas and Vansevers cables in and it ain't happening. I tried...

    I believe the "best" tube for your preamp is dependent on what you and/or your system needs. I used to have a highly modified DAC with a tube output stage, both tubes protruded out of the top cover so they could be rolled in 15 seconds. I must have...
