UUnderhill, which tube? In the event topbander cannot help, I have recently created a list of 1000s of tubes for a friend. He might have it. I can do a quick lookup. Note I don't own the tubes nor have them.

I was also considering the Audioengine then saw a Chinese knockoff ( https://www.ebay.ca/itm/152789368393 ) claiming to be a replacement for the Audioengine B1. Ordered it last week figuring it's inexpensive and worth a shot. It'll feed into an integrated tube amp for a small office setup. Currently...

I've been looking into ordering an amp from Space-Tech Laboratory but haven't yet pulled the trigger. Their designs look very interesting. Some CAM members have had mixed experiences with their products. Check out the website to see for yourself. Audiois1st I'm running a couple of Space-Tech produc...

Recently purchased a Bluesound Node 2 to replace a Grace Encore as my new media streamer. What I sought was the capability to stream Spotify or Tidal which the Grace unit does not support. I didlike the standalone nature of the Grace where apps are fully embedded. Now I need to pair another device a...

I have recently purchased a Bluesound Node 2 which supports MQA. Is anyone aware of Spotify plans to support MQA? Whether/when Tidal will provide an Android client?

I'm running Kodi on a Raspberry Pi3. I would never recommend this method to a non-technical person. The price is right and it has its glitches. A PC platform is more turnkey but you'll still be confronted with the configuration and iffyness of Kodi streams. Freetelly is an improvement but it will st...

Space-Tech Lab QA115-MK4 preamp to go along with a Space-Tech Lab HP-150 Deluxe amp I bought off CAM. I like 'em and have been trying different tubes in each.

Have you checked kijiji for people heading your way looking for passengers to share costs? I did this once to have a radio delivered from New Brunswick. Worked well. Paid the price of a passenger and she was still able to have passengers since the radio went into the back of her wagon.

I'm not 100% certain what you mean but for what it's worth use whatever tube each component will support and you should be fine. I am looking for advice on any optimal matching between preamp and amp in tube numbers (using tubes they support of course). For example, is 6sn7 in each unit best or doe...
