The Chrome is plated over a copper chassis.   He used to offer a straight copper that was polished (pics on his website) but did away with it.  There is a ‘antique copper’ finish that is more a copper/hammertone type finish over a copper chassis. ...

Btw,..  the difference between the 2 is pre circuit.  Chard. hey s a traditional resistor loaded circuit, 2stage, direct coupled.   Cab uses some CCS load,  direct coupled as well.  Both are parafeed output as all Suprateks are.

Nah,.. you dont understand the PS, and how its built.  There is very little difference if any between the  chardonnay / cab PS.   The main PS feeds the tube regs which make it what it is and do the major cleaning/stabilization of the V feeding the...

Jack summed it up nicely.  Smooth/classic vs. more dynamic/lively.   Its subtle but instantly noticeable and interestingly both still very much retain that ‘Supratek’ house sound.  Mostly likely due to the regulators.  A feature very few other bui...

The EML 45's are great,  running a pair of the 45 Mesh on my Grange.  Wonderful tube!

Make sure the center/rear toggle in front of the gain knob is positioned towards the front of the pre (or make sure the knob is fully clockwise),..  Other posibility is that the V switch for the DHT is incorrect.   If you are in fact using a 300B ...

jackd is correct..   the gain adj. knob, when activated with the toggle switch,  will reduce the gain to zero,.  ie, mute.   it shunts all the output to grd.    something is amiss if you are if you turn it fully counterclockwise and still get outp...

Get a pair of EML 300b’s and be done with it.   Superbly built,  very rugged, sound amazing, have a 5 yr warrenty and are on par with Elrog and WE at a better price.

If next to each other,  I would give them at least 6' of space.  In that it is a transformer coupled design (output)..  those OPT's will pick up any stray/strong EM.    Generally not a huge concern but the PS is just that and you wouldn't want the...

I would maybe think the Chard but ymmv.  It's always a personal preference at the end of the day.  Can't go wrong with either.  Maybe start with a Chard.,  less exp. and see if you feel like your wanting of anything.  Most likely will be very happ...

depends on your system and what your after.   they are 2 different circuits with the later incorporating some CCS.   The Cab's sound a little more hifi or tend show some more contrast in the music than the Chardonnay.  Thusly I would call the Char...
