Thanks chaps, very interesting. There are some great integrated amps up to $500. It'll be a difficult choice. A&R A60, Creek 4040 and 4330, NAD 3155, Audiolab 8000, Cyrus II, Naim NAIT 1 and 2 and QUAD 77. Canada is the best supplier but the g... 
Matching SUT for Benz Micro MC Gold
I had a Klyne Series Six with a MC phono stage but I sold it. Actually, I am using a Uesugi UBROS-1 preamplifier: PHONO 1 and 2 - (2mV / 47 kΩ); PHONO 3 - (6.5 mV / 47 kΩ). Not enough gain to drive a LO MC cartridge.Cheers, 
Analog Tube Audio: where is my SME 3009?

Audiosilente idler wheel versus Artisan Fidelity idler wheel for a Garraed 401

Dahlquist DQ-1LP crossover owners
Hi bdp24,I have just received an email from a First Watt dealer. He said that the B-4 is a two-way crossover. If you want to have three-way active crossover system, you will need two B-4’s and connect them in a cascading fashion. A “6 dB boo... 
Dahlquist DQ-1LP crossover owners
bdp24, one more question, I know about Nelson Pass but I know nothing about the First Watt B4. Can it be used with the pair of dual drivers dipoles that I want to build?Best regards,Horacio

Shipping drivers to China
