    Kt150ís and My 200iq

    Curiosity got the best of me and this dealer dude whom I bought the amp had some Kt150’s laying around and loaned them to me. I really didn’t have great expectations for them but I was so wrong. The sound is huge and has a slamming bass! My little S3MK2’s were transformed into a much larger speaker. I couldn’t find much fault with them and they could easily serve as my full time tube.
    I’m also burning in a quad of KR Kt88’s for him as part of the deal. They sound surprisingly decent and they are just at the 24 hour mark.
    I can already tell this amp has opened up another money pit black hole. Ohhhh but so much fun....better than drugs, gambling and wild women......

    Ok ok...maybe not the wild women.

    You should Joe!
    I messaged Mike and told him he wasn’t getting the Kt150’s back.
    With that bass they totally transformed the amp into a classic rock monster. Of course you know what came next! Yep imagine them as monoblocks said evil Mikey.

    That is neat to hear, Larry. Tube rolling really seems to be the gift that keeps on giving.

    Re: Kt150ís and My 200iq

    I just ordered a 200iQ from mike. Excited to break it in and start rolling some tubes around. I kind of suspect that the gold lion 88’s might be the winner in the end even though they are stock. I also ordered up some Sylviania 6sn7’s to try. I have not always loved KT 150’s but i have some great ones in the “tube drawer” and will give them a shot when the time is right. I have S3 mkii’s as well and look forward to trading notes!
