Congratulations Phil. I'd have to admit I'm jealous. I remember how well that integrated is. No doubt you'll have a lot of enjoyment using it. Out of curiosity, what speakers were hooked up to it when you went to listen to it?

Thanks for all the comments, everyone. It's greatly appreciated. Now all I have to do is finish those speakers I've been working on. :D

I swapped in my Paradigm Monitor 7's today and they sounded great as well, smoother I would say. But there is something about those old PSB 500's that just seemed a little more dynamic.

I doubt my equipment is worth fiddling about with different cables, so I don't worry too much about that. Basic cables are all I use and I'm fine with that.

Glen pulled a set of small dual transmission lines out of storage (two small drivers in each) as he thought they might have some similar characteristics to the ones I'm making. I don't recall the name but I believe he said they were made in the States. They were decent little towers with a very nice midrange. We had a good chat and a nice long listening session. Glen is such a good guy and it was a great experience overall.

Thanks again, everyone. I really enjoyed the discussion and suggestions from everyone. It was a great learning experience and I really appreciate all the help.

Best,

I knew Glen when he had the hole in the wall store. I used to live in that embarrassingly flat town. Summers can get crazy hot.

I loved the thunderstorms. They are so bad, we all disconnected our stereos, when leaving the house for even a full day, throughout the summer period. You know what I be talkin' 'bout, Phil.

Just a note to say congrats on a fine amplifier and a great purchase. Those Sugden amps are instant classics!

I hope you weren't talking about the Role Audio Enterprise? If they were, then man, I wish I would've been there. I've been wanting to hear those for a long time. I'm glad you were able to spend time listening. I miss the old shop. I was always nice to go there and hang out.

That rings a bell alright. As I said they were very nice little towers, not much lower end of course but the midrange was lovely.

Congrats on your new amp! I too am hooked on an A21, it would be really tough to give it up.
