    I bet that Viva 300b integrated is wonderful.

    At the very least it is great to look at. I wonder how Vinnie's hybrid LIO integrated would do with the AG's? If you stayed away from the DHT preamp version the preamp tubes should last thousands of hours.

    After hearing Vinnie’s gear on Voltis a few years ago, I’m sure it would be superb on my Duo. That’s one demo I hope to make happen.

    After hearing a LIO, not sure if it would be sweet enough for the AG's.

A Lampizator DAC to PAD Cables to a SP-14 Tubed PreAmp, Coincident Frankenstein 300B monoblocks, & or Valvet E-2, Fusion speaker cables, AudioKinesis Zephryn 46 Speakers. pair Rythmik F-12 subs, EP2050, DCCA Furutech and Kaplan Power cables, APC power conditioner, Two dedicated 20Amp power lines.

    Joe, see if you can get your hands on the new First Watt SIT-3 amp, if there are any left.
    Probably work better than your XA-25 on the AG.

    I use the Franks and SIT-3 on my Hornings and both are excellent.
    The SIT-3 is really a great sounding amp. It has beautiful rich tone somewhat like my SET amp but has the control of SS.

    Interesting, my recollection on the Volti was great but that could be the speakers to a large part. My Luxman MQ300 will probably be center stage for a while but I am looking at a few other amps. My first priority is a better or matching preamp. While I love my LTA MZ2, I cannot help but wonder what a different preamp will bring to the equation.

    I have the SIT-3 on order but no time frame for delivery. I’m looking forward to hearing it.

    Sorry. Not yet Keith, hopefully soon. I’m still doing a lot of experimenting and am procrastinating on the new rack.
