Review: Rogue Audio Cronus Magnum Tube amp
I had the Cayin for a couple of years and then gave it to my brother who still loves it. It is one of the better el34 amps I have owned. I almost bought the Cronus a few years back. So I judge that one. You can't go wrong with either one. I will a... 
Amplifiers:A Keeper for Life. Do you know of one ?
I have a Musical Reference RM 10 that is so unique in that it extract such good drive from the little el84 tube. No other amp I know of gets 35w from 2 of these little guys. Plus this little guy is easy to bias and tube rolling is fun. I think the... 
Hafler DH 500 update?
I am using this amp with a set of Meadowlark Swift. These are very easy to drive and the Hafler does a reasonable job. I use a Red Wine Audio modded Squeezebox 2 as a source and a Sunfire Reference preamp as a control unit. For almost zero investm... 
Hafler DH 500 update?
Thanks...someone mentioned the color green but mine is a flat black. Also this amp does have inline fuses on each side. The fuse caps say 10 amp, but i guess you could use a lower rated one for added protection. 
Onix SP3: What speakers are you using?
Jt3...I was suprised also. I guess the impedance curve must be pretty steady. And also I am in a small room so I don't have to push them to play loud enough. At about 85 db sens., volume might be a problem in large room. By the way I also use the ... 
Onix SP3: What speakers are you using?
I have used many speakers with this amp and most sound good. My two favorites were the Usher be718's and the Sol 5's. By the way , which HiFi tuning fuse do you use. I know it is an 8A/250V. But is it fast or slo blow.... 
Revisiting Tube Recommendations for Cayin TA-30
I used to have one of these and should have kept it. But that is another story. Anyway I tried all kind of tubes and found I like the JJ kt77 power tubes alot. I also like the RCA cleartops12au7 and the GE blackplate 5751's . This combination was ...

Recommendation of a good nearfield speaker
Cane and Abby nearfield design...I have heard they sound amazing especially with an SET 
Logitech Duet vs. Dedicated Transport
I have a Redwine Audio modded sb2 that runs off a 12 volt scooter battery.I have had many cd players at prices up to 2000 and will choose the sb2 every time. Add the convenience of operation and you realize the CD will be an extinct medium very so... 
Tube amp with built in DAC
The Glow Amp is one of the best sounding amps for money I have ever heard. Since it is single end there is very little feedback. Just enought to solidify the bass. I am using it with a pair for Silverline SR 11's. They are not the most efficient s... 
Amp ideas for Soliloquy SM2a3 speakers
I recently bought a little Glow Amp 1 for a headphone amp, but decided nto try it with the sols and the combo was great. The soft nature of the sols was balanced by linearity of el 84 tube and result is really nice. You can't play them at rock mus... 
Cayin A50t biasing problem
I want to thank you guys for the tips..It actually was the probe length. I went to radio shack and bought a pair with longer probes and it worked. That was really wierd. I have had alot of tube amps and that was the first with that issue....Again ...
