Esoteric DV60
To bump this thread, I own a DV60, for listening to music it is absolutely incredible. The Redbook section easily beat a friends Marantz SA11 S2 in an AB. The DV60 is getting a raw deal on this thread, particularly when it comes to music productio... 
Are there any tube amps that don't give off any---
@jond  I actually do a seasonal amp rotation, the tube amps for the winter and mostly the ss amp for the summer. Even so, the ss amp heats the room enough within about 1.5 hours that it is time for the AC. Swapping out the KT150's for El34's may b... 
Are there any tube amps that don't give off any---
In my room, even an amp that puts out just a little heat, over time heats up the room considerably. I already own a couple of amps that put out just a little heat ( one a ss amp, one a tube amp). I also have AC, and in the summer, this is required...

@atmasphere  Punching holes in walls or floors is not an option. My dedicated room is a stand alone structure on a concrete slab. No basement.

@jaytor Isn't the Purifi module a Class D module? I'm not really interested in a Class D amp, mainly due to the fact that all of the Class D amps i have heard are too sterile sounding to my ears. Even the 'best of class' Jeff Rowland models.

@mheinze  I wouldn't know, how did you get banned from audio forums?Perhaps you were trying to provoke arguments? --;0) 
1st Album you Ever Owned?
Great thread. My first was a superb compilation album...Stereo Plus 3, which was a promo LP released by City National Bank. This promo LP featured Gladys Knight, Beatles and other great performers. If you can find a copy today, its a great listen.

@austinstereo.  That is interesting. I am not concerned about the issue of injury, as I never let folk get near the tubes. Your client has a point though if he had little children or pets that could get injured!The issue I brought up in my OP, has...

@sciencecop  I don't dispute that I am not a Magico fanboy like yourself, BUT i don't bash Magico at every opportunity, no need to. Yes, I am a 'lovely' person, are you? or are you just another nasty little troll? 
Are there any tube amps that don't give off any---
Warm but not hot is how my amps get now. Problem is, that due to such a small room, warm over time is enough to heat the room considerably. I like the idea of maybe rolling in some smaller tubes, which might lead to even less heat. Something I wil...

@mheinze  I am not a Magico fanboy if you are asking that, and I don't get upset when someone offers an opinion of my speaker. You own A3's, good for you, so when i stated that they didn't impress me, you didn't like that...too bad. I have heard M... 
Are there any tube amps that don't give off any---
@atmasphere Actually my AC works well enough to cool the room, BUT the issue is that it is a little noisy, just as any fan vent would be. Like you stated, my tube amps also run coolish when they are in standby, but once the voltage is applied, up ...

@mheinze Maybe you should read these threads a lot better than you do...before you tell anyone that they know nothing about the speaker! If you did this, MAYBE you would have read this from member easy_h:"I got mine about a month now. My Bryston 7...

All New Magico A5 Loudspeakers // Biggest "BANG" For Your BUCK On The Market ?!
@mheinze Please explain how me hearing the A5 will change its requirement for a monster power amp upstream???I have heard the A3, nothing special at all IMHO.The A5 may very well be a totally different sounding speaker, I sure hope it is, but the ...
