Atma-Sphere MA-1 Mk.3.1 Vs. Atma-Sph. MA-2 Mk.3.1
Mechans. With all due respect: re powering the Avalons with Atmasphere amps. No doubt in my mind the MA-1 would be the better choice over the MA-60. The MA-60 hasn't a chance comparatively speaking here. For that matter, even the MA-1's would be c...

Hi Don. I don't mean to sound condencending, however... to keep things in perspective here regarding the sellers statement of power being the dynamics component to capture the dynamics of live music is way off base here.To give you some perspectiv... 
Atma-Sphere MA-1 Mk.3.1 Vs. Atma-Sph. MA-2 Mk.3.1
Hello Don. The begnign impedance of the vintage Tannoy DC's makes for the perfect marriage with OTL amplification. Each and every model of the Atmasphere OTL amplifiers will be more than capable to drive your Tannoy Golds regardless of level you w...

Best Integrated w/ Phono-In under $350
Hey Gang. A bunch of good suggestions here however, it would be a whole lot easier to make a recommendation if we knew what speaker he intends on is using it with. 
Proac D38R with SET amp
I would have my doubts about any an amplifier employing a single 2a3 triode/channel. May work if configured in parallel/channel however I still don't believe that it would be a synergistic match.As mentioned above, the Cary 805's are a fabulous pa...

Luxman CL-35MKIII or Audio Research SP-8
Porto. From a life long Tannerd & former user of both preamps.Chatta. Say what? A little bit better?....surely you must be kidding here. Have you heard both products side by side in your own rig? I will be blunt and to the point : There is jus... 
Change EL84 tubes on Eico HF 81
Hi San jose. Hey, Merry Christmas.Is your HF-81 circuit still stock?It is always advisable to replace the el84's with closely matched pairs/channel with any self biasing type amplifier. Randomly substituting output tubes in an amplifier employing ... 
What is your favorite tube for a preamplifier ?
Hi Gang. In reference to Casouza's post stating the 6sn7 as a direct decendent of the 6sn7. Although electrically equivalent and both employ the same octal base, the 6j5 is a single triode whereby the 6sn7 is a dual triode [basically two 6j5's in ...
