Roger's knowledge of tubes is quite impressive. He has been to the old Sylvania factory and even to Eastern Europe to see the manufacturing process in person. RAM Tubes is also one of only a few resellers world wide for EML tubes, arguably some of the best tubes made right now,. In fact Roger would like to design some kits and complete sets of amps that utilize these tubes.
During Nelson's presentation at the event he and Roger engaged in quite an interesting discussion on active crossover design. It's rare to see two outstanding designers engage in discussions like this. Yes, Burning Amp is for those more technically inclined, but nonetheless I think everyone walked away with an appreciation for people like Nelson, Roger, Wayne, and Siegfried who have made such great contributions to audio. Mario Yrun and his team put on a great event this year. I hope they can expand it to include more participants next year. Burning Amp is a breath of fresh air compared to the traditional audio event.
