Modwright LS100 vs The followings
@charles1dad what is the rest of your system?   
Modwright LS100 vs The followings
And I also completely agreed with charles1dad description on the Coincident statement, it is spot on as well.  Open, dynamic, transparent.also, the Coincident seems more sensitive to the cables.  I use Neotech 3004 RCA on Modwright and they sound ... 
Modwright LS100 vs The followings
Just give a quick update.  First of all, my comments about the Modwright is not accurate. Shortly after that session, it blown two fuses in one morning.  I then took it to a technician.  I think he replaces a couple capacitor or resistor, nothing ... 
Modwright LS100 vs The followings
Honestly the Modwright is good.  I actually brought it to my fiends place and A/B test compared to his SP10.  It was a short session because we also compared the phono preamp and power amp.  Different people focus on different thing.  It can very ...

Modwright LS100 vs The followings
@adg101 thanks for your reply.  I already use some isolation underneath it because it is too big to fit in my shelf.  I can try another power chord.  For the fuse, what do you use?   
Other Rectifier tubes Alternative for 5AR4
It’s not an issue in this case since you have directly heated cathodes, but the 5AR4 also has a controlled warmup time to prevent cathode stripping. At any rate there aren't any good subs for it.Do you mean my amp which is based on the Luxman MQ-3... 
Other Rectifier tubes Alternative for 5AR4
The reason I asked is that I have a Musical Paradise DAC which states that I can roll all those different tubes.  I also have a Modwright LS100 and I checked with Dan, he also confirms it is safe to roll these variants.  So, my understanding is th... 
preamp upgrade suggestion around $2000
@smodtactical  I have been using tube preamp for a long time.  Sticking with tube will have less risk of surprise, I think. 
preamp upgrade suggestion around $2000
@jjss49 i spent the whole day research on it since I saw the ad.  I think it is a fact that it is not as popular as brands like Don Sachs, LTA and Modwright.  It has good reviews from a smaller community.  Not saying it is bad, but I am just not s... 
preamp upgrade suggestion around $2000
I didn’t jump on the deHavilland.  Somehow, are not sure, maybe due to the tube, maybe not enough reviews ... anyway.I come across this Doge 8 clarity preamp in my search.  Their DAC and amp receives rave reviews on the internet.  However, no one ... 
preamp upgrade suggestion around $2000
I am seriously thinking about it, have been reading reviews since afternoon.  Is that the first generation?  The wiring inside seems not very tidy.Any idea how’s the sound compared to others such as LTA MZ3 or Modwright?  From what I read, it has ... 
preamp upgrade suggestion around $2000
Thanks for the replies.  I will check out the deHavilland.@ozzy62 abour Cary SLP98, I got similar experience on their 300B integrated amp as well.  It sound very lush and warm as you said.  I compared it to my custom built 300B and I like the cust... 
preamp upgrade suggestion around $2000
BTW, I am looking for $2000-$3000 for a used equipment. 
preamp upgrade suggestion around $2000
I can also share some of my experience with 6SN7, because my custom 300B use 4 x 6SN7, and I also have a 2A3 that use 6SN7.i tried the Shuguang WE6SN7, unfortunately, it develops some popping noise at start up after 2 weeks.  The sound is ok, but ...
