Toroidal Isolation Power Conditioner
Also have BPT and second your thoughts. Bought an Equi=Tech to put by the fuse box. Hi efficiency speakers really benefit. Best value is the BPT to run your front end. I was lucky to find a used BPT3.5 Sig Plus and yes 80lbs. They come up from tim...

I went to Grant, but saw them yesterday on Amazon for considerably less. Ouch.Don't know though if Amazon has the "special low noise" tubes culled out. Mick mentioned that the Psvane Tlls were the best. I have four different NOS 6SN7 pair but don'...

Considering simplifying my system... talk me down (or whatever)
If I make it to eighty with good ears nobody's changing nothing I listen to. Unless I upgrade. 
Supratek or Don Sachs - which way to go?
Ordered my Supratek 6SN7 Chardonnay. Was glad to see Mick was up and running again. Had read about this for some time and looking forward to some great sounds. I like Mick's approach.
