Understand where you are coming from ...
I do a variance on your method, I have 2 systems setup together, which share the same sources, my main is a Supratek DHT and the vintage valves I use are rather expensive so its used for long listening times a few times a week as I want to preserve where I am at after a fair bit of valve rolling by its previous owner and myself. Due to the demanding speakers, Dynaudio C2 Plats, I found that they don't go that well with my original MC75 valve power amps so after some experiments went with an used Accuphase A70 to drive them .. it takes a good 30 mins or thereabouts for the system to settle in and improve, interesting the amps show a couple of watts increase once its settled in ? Not sure whether its the pre, pwr or both ?
So for quick listens I have a used McIntosh C22 and MC75's which I brought originally to try drive the more demanding dynaudio speakers, I since brought a more efficient set of speakers and this combo gets going very quickly and importantly the valves are all modern and a lot less expensive. A nice listen as well but it doesn't match the openness and richness of my other system. I did change out the pre valves to Genalex Gold Lion 12AT7's as the stock ones weren't doing anything for me ..
LOL Just because it does 110, doesn't mean your gonna listen at 110.
Mercy. Heck a I have a CAR that will hit 125, a single 10".
I've taken VERY good care of my ears. I suggest everyone do that.
I use 2-4 12Ks when I want to PUSH the issue at home..
You know I've been around car/PU/simi audio stuff, for 50 plus years, the last 25 or so the automotive stuff can really put it out.
I was at a competition, where Gapa Bass hit 145, BEFORE he flipped the sub switch. 165. I wear OVER the top muffs and plugs at competition.. I NEVER stick my ears in a chamber.. NEVER..
Been 5 years since I went to one.
I see a bunch of kids, hanging around, I MOVE ON. LOL
I saw a simi tip up, catch on fire, in Brazil (?). 140K gen set...YUP
HI CURRENT class Ds 100+ amps right to the ground. I think they saved the tractor. Show Off.. :-)
