    Re: Anyone dumping their power conditiner?

    Hmmm, maybe it is just me but I do not think I saw anyone questioning anyone else's ears here :P.

    BTW- I play on a different level but I am happy with my Niagara 1000.

    Re: Opinions on tubes for my Hattor

    Nah.. no worries at all... I was just justifying re-mentioning Hattor :).... Arek seems to be a very good guy and definitely prides himself on using top quality parts!

    Re: Opinions on tubes for my Hattor

    The Stage 2 is a whole other level from the standard model. However the Wyred probably can't be rated as pure passive since it does have a buffer.

    The Hattor (subject of this thread) is...

    Re: Handmade Passive Preamplifier

    Well Hattor is a world renowned passive preamplifier. It is even printed right on the face plate.

    Re: Opinions on tubes for my Hattor

    I will, and thank you Jack. Much appreciated.

    Just received an AT 700 series cartridge to mount up on the Technics as an alternative. Always loved Signet/AT cartridges. The Rega is the main...

    Re: Opinions on tubes for my Hattor

    Ahhh... I feel like such a tube noob... But it is fun. The active stage is really nice. So much air and sound stage. Dynamics are far better. I hooked up the vintage McIntosh the other day and I...

    Re: Opinions on tubes for my Hattor

    Hey Jack, honest I am not sure. I would have to pull them and look. :)

    I have a feeling that Arek includes top notch tubes because he tends to use very high level parts. They do sound very good...

    Re: new amp kit

    I built several Haflers back in the day. They really were not that difficult, but what I found most important was take my time and make sure all my soldering points were solid with no cold solders. ...

    Agreed... uncomfortable and heavy headphones can get really fatiguing.

    Yea, I could see the use of multiple inputs. Obviously a different level, but having two tables now it would be nice if my 310 had two inputs. Also doing adjustments from the front would be...

    Re: Mike's Systems

    Do you have one of the high end SimAudio's in the shop that you could take home and give it a try... maybe an 810? From some mentions in other reviews it appears as if the 810 could hold its own...
