If his online shop is sold out... maybe something is working. Are we talking about him? Yes we are. You have to remember that lots of people haven't heard great audio playback and while he's not offering anything new (High efficiency horns and triodes are old as dirt and came back into interest in the late 80s) lots of people won't have been exposed to anything better than an mp3 on their phone or a nightclub.

During the holidays I changed out my main system, replacing my Parasound preamp/amp setup with an integrated amp (Peachtree iNova). Felt like there was big boost in the bass.

After the holidays I went back to the old setup and noticed a big drop in the bass.

The sub in the system was being fed by loop outs on the back of my amp. When I switched the feed over to the sub outs on the preamp the bass came back to normal levels.

No WAY those low-powered amps could play to lifelike volume! You need 300 WATTS PER CHANNEL. At LEAST!!!!

it's true . you won't get lifelike low end at volume with a single output triode .

more to the point why would i want tube compression on hi fi ?

anyways it sounds like you're going to buy / build the kit ? should be pretty easy

Very nice. Are those Puppys?

The speakers are Wilson Audio Alexia Vs in a beautiful Cranberry Pearl finish. Two Wilson LoKe subwoofers add bass down to 14 hz and fire directly into the front corners of the room. Setup was done by Jim Smith over ten days. Sounds lifelike.

The turntable is a Continuum Caliburn with a Lyra Etna Lambda cartridge. The tape deck is a Redox PR99 completely modified by Soren Wittrup.
