What do you have your music stored on? If it's a computer or laptop all you need is a DAC.

Keep an eye out for a used AudioSpace integrated. They're affordable. We used to use them a lot with our Tannoy models and it was a good fit. If it was a 'money no object' kinda' thing - then I'd be telling you to go find some Allnic tube gear. Nothing ran the the Tannoys better - We used to kick in...

Have a look at the NuPrime DACs. They're really quite good indeed - especially the DAC9 (and if that's over your budget the little USBmini is kinda' wicked for the money!

Dean - "I dont see a KT88 option? Only KT120 and KT150, or am I confused and those are both variants of a KT88 ?" All three of the above are new(er) variants of the venerable 6550. All add a touch more power. Sometimes one needs to do some re-biasing - sometimes not - depends on the amp de...

I've taken a couple of pallets of vacuum tubes to Kastner Auctions and they are listed for the sale on Sunday October 21st. (We have determined that in order to get at least one of our vehicles into the garage this winter - unlike the last two winters - something has to give and that 'give' would be...

I was working for the promoter in Edmonton for that same concert tour. The Moody Blues wanted separate limos to bring each of the band members to the gig and they put on a very lacklustre show. SRV, on the other hand, tore the place up. That was also the same concert where the promoter asked me to p...
