Monroe Institute is real deal.  Tones alone worked for me-not imbedded in music.  Long story distilled down…@14 years ago I suffered a reactivation of Epstein-Barr virus.  Auto immune response demyelinated peripheral nerves in legs and feet.  I wa...

Primaluna signal tube replacement
All great advice. Thanks.  Especially the “reseating” comment.  I think I’ll work the originals back into those slots and see what happens.  I tend to overlook the simple stuff sometimes.  I sure love this amp.

Primaluna signal tube replacement

Whiter Shade of Pale—Procol Harem,,lyrics and that                                       cadence And Your Bird Can Sing—Beatles,,,my favorite Beatles song I’ll think of more shortly.  Long list when other’s mention a good one      
Music that has a hold of me beyond understanding
I always worked 4-12 in the ER.  I would often listen to KXTR classical radio on the drive in.  The DJ was the greatest.  Played an eclectic bunch of music.  One day he played some Django Reinhardt.  I actually pulled off the road to listen.  Stil... 
Being alone with your music
I love this common experience of the transistor radio under the pillow, late at nite.  My grandparents bought it for me Christmas’63.  Loved it so much I actually would polish it.  Home was an unhappy place.  Grim for a 10 year old.  BUT……at nite,...

As A Youngster, What Unit Puqued Your Interest In All This?
Waytoomuchstuff ,,I was one of those other guys hanging around David Beatty.  Great place and great time. My roommates brother brought home Sansui gear from being stationed in Korea.  Wow.   ‘74, my brother in law sends me Sansui gear from the PX... 
Rolling KT150s in Primaluna hp integrated
Yes on upscale audio.  When tubes were unavailable several years ago, I purchased a quad of kt150’s from an outlet in Canada. Within 8-9 months, three out of four went badly microphonic.  Past the 6 months warranty.  When tubes became available th...
