VAC Avatar vs. VAC Avatar Special Edition
Hi Steve,I pulled up the above iar article and it didn't address the SE just the super so I doubt that was much help to your question. I haven't heard the SE (I have a regular Avatar) but I talked to Kevin at VAC and he basically told me what you ...

Better than KT-88s?
Lafish...........what specific VAC amp are you refering to? Was in running the 34's in triode mode?Thanks 
Classe Reliability : Your Opinions?
