    Re: Do you use an integrated in your main system?

    Joe, I sometimes switch in my Viva Solistino to run my Sf Stradivaris (in place of LAMM ML2.2s or Unison Research Reference). The Solistino snaps at their heels and in my 7m x 5m x 4m room has no...

    After only three hours with the Sinos in the Viva this evening - there is no doubt you are correct, they are significantly better than the Solistino's stock tubes. I began listening after about half...

    Mike, for your interest a matched pair of the Sino 845s arrived from Tube Depot today and they are (pleasingly) a match for those pictured in your post #26 above. Interestingly, other than the finish...

    Re: Viva Solistino

    Thanks for the info.Mike - I think I will get a pair from Tube Depot then.............their pricing seems quite modest compared to most 845s generally available. I like the stock 845s which have...

    I recently purchased a Solistino for use in a second system with DeVore Orangutan 0/96s.............so far a terrific match. Just under 100 hours on the amp. Had not come across the...

    Hi Mike, the EATs are my favourites at present.............they just appear to be perfect for the Carys, they seemingly give the amps more dynamic drive creating a more powerful or "bigger" feel to...
