  1. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    Like you Chris, I do too. When I go to audio shows like RMAF, Axpona and now the Florida Expo, I am amazed at how many power amplifiers are super impressive. Soulution, Constellation, Roland, Pass,...
  2. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    Dan: I can appreciate your love of tubes. I have also lived with tubes for many years. My first being a Bogan PA head amplifier and a 25 watt Lafayette guitar amplifier. My first hifi piece was a...
  3. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    Re: Why no turntable?

    Sorry I didn’t have the years needed to read this whole thread. I do own a table. When I look at my vinyl collection, I recall all the parties and good times I had 40 years ago. Invariably my...
  5. Re: Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    Just simple ones, like tube degradation, low power, limited ability to handle less than 8 ohm loads, bass overhang, rolled off high frequencies, quality tube availability, high cost of power tubes,...
  6. Tubed Power Amplifiers. Are the disadvantages too great ?

    Had a thought yesterday about tubed power amps. I have many friends who will never consider a solid state power amplifier. I am not one of them. I certainly understand the fluidity and “beauty” of...
  7. Re: Would you abandon your expensive cables if there was a much cheaper alternative?

    Well AJ, I think that just about caps off this topic. What more can be said ?
  8. Re: Would you abandon your expensive cables if there was a much cheaper alternative?

    I assume “cable sceptic” translates to “cable skeptic” in USA lingo. Not being derogatory in any way, just clarifying. I would have preferred being a cable skeptic, as it would have saved me...
  9. Re: Nelson Pass answers a question from Michael B on Steve Guttenberg video!

    Saw that video. Was surprised Nelson said:”That name sounds familiar”, when referring to Mike. No doubt Nelson is one of my hero's in this field of audio. I met him over 30 years ago at Sound by...
  10. Re: Would you abandon your expensive cables if there was a much cheaper alternative?

    Yes, Better is better regardless of cost. At one time my cables were all silver. I loved the liveliness and extension. In time this became tiresome. Presently I have zero silver cables in my rig, I...

    Re: Analysis Plus.

    I have about 75 hours on two pairs of these speaker cables. They are breaking in nicely. They are a nice bread and butter cable. I don’t mean this in a derogatory way. They do it all, without calling...

    Re: Multiple Sets Of Speakers

    I was always enamored with English two way speakers. Unfortunately I never owned any. Well recently I had three different sets in my sound room. I was lucky enough to get a woofer module to work...

    Re: Audience AU24 SX Cable Review

    I will state right off, I have never heard the Audience AU24 SX in my system. I have at least three audiophile buddies tell me how good they are. They all upgraded with Audience up to the SX. I did...

    Re: YG Acoustics Sonja™ 2.2

    Was looking for a woofer module to augment my newly acquired Falcon LS3/5a’s. So I contacted Falcon for a recommendation. They commented that no subwoofer or bass module was up to the task. To their...
