The most musical sound in my 40 year's Audio history.
It is the sound from my current system based upon Lansche 4.1 speakers.
I bought my first serious audio system consisting of Garrard Turntable, Fisher Receiver(SS), ADS bookself speaker on 1978.
Since then I had gone through Altech Lansing, Thiel, Canton, Apogee Duetta Signature, Avalon Ascent II, Wilson Watt Puppy 6, B&W 801, Full range speaker using Lowther PM 65.
I had Apogee Duetta Signature mated with Krell KSA 150 from 1989 to 1999.
That was the second most musical system that I had ever had.
In retrospect, I shall have kept Apogee for my life.
I had used Nad, Perreaux, Krell, Jeff Rowland SS amplifiers until 1999.
Since then I had been using only Tube amplifier, Jadis 500, Silbatone 300B SET, Rogue Cronus Magnum II.
I had given up vinyl when I moved from Berkeley to Chicago on 1988 since I had no room for vinyls in my small car.
I had used NAD, California Audio System, DCS Elgar,CEC TL0x, Accoustic Arts, EMMLab Dac2 as digital source.
I had been using Lansche 4.1 Speaker since 2007.http://stereotimes.com/speak112410.shtml
It has pristine treble out of plasma tweeter, dynamic sound out of active two 10 inch woofers and high efficiency (99db/w spec).
For the first 4 years I mated Lansche with Silbatone 300B SET 8watt amplifer (Western Electric original 300B tube made in 1903's).
But after moving to larger house, 8 watts was not enough to drive Lansche to full orchestra.
Thus I got Rogue Cronus Magnum II temporary base.
But after tube rolling, I had liked Rogue enough to keep it for 6 years.
I had installed Telefuken 12AX7 and Amperex 12Au7 to Rogue.
This year I got Line Magnetic 508 SET tube amplifier.
It has output of 48 watts out of 805 tubes and use 300B as driver.
I also had got Jay's CDT2 Mk2 transport to mate with EMMLab Dac2.
I also got used Lyngdorf 2170 two weeks ago for test.
Lyngdorf did not mate well with Lansche 4.1 speaker as amplifier.
But it turned out the Lyngdorf do wonder as Dac and room correction mated with Jay's transport.
I had done lot of tube rolling with Line Magnetic SET amplifier.

Cossor Tube 805Bhttps://www.hifi-amplifiers.com/en/cossor-valve-805-made-by-psvane-hiend-vacuum-tubes-best-matched-p...
I also use Spiritual Audio Vx9 power conditioner, Synergistic System Blue Power cables, Audio Note speaker Cable and Silnote digital cable.
Line Magnetic 508 (after Nos tube rolling) mated with Lansche 4.1 give most musical sound in my 40 years' Audio history.
I had been to many Audio Shows and Dealer Showrooms.
Some system play more dynamic sound but never musical as mine.
My system provide sweet treble, nuanced details, wide and deep soundstage and pretty explosive dynamics reaching 20hz rumble.
I am listening to "Autumn Leaves" sung by Eva Cassidy now.
Her voices is detailed and nuanced with mesmerizing appeal.
I had been never happy as now in my life.
