Headphone outlet on SET amplifier
It very well could be harmful. Most tube amps will object strongly to being fed an input signal without being connected to a load.I would definitely contact Cary about it before taking a chance. Maybe connecting your outputs to a dummy load would ... 
Center channel for Triangle Celius
Well, isn't this ironic? These wouldn't be my old Celius, would they? I've now come full circle and bought a new pair of Volantes!I may be of some help to you. Shoot me an email and I'll see if I can be of some assistance. 
5.1 Speaker Packages....Any Worthwhile....
I agree with the NHT suggestion above. Classic 3s are tailor made for theater. If you insist on a package deal, you may be interested in this. You'll have a few bucks left over for a nice sub and plenty of popcorn.On the subject of Magnolia, they ... 
Buying Someone's Records: An Ethics Question
There are no universally accepted ethical standards. Each individual has their own level of conscionable action.The truth is, unless you have inspected his collection, neither of you really knows its' value. You may find that your example price pe... 
Speaker Cable Suggestion
Nice to see you're still singing the praises of Goertz MI-2, Clio! Those are still the buy of the century, IMHO.Obviously I second your recommendation.I might also suggest the 'Lending Library' over at the Cable Company. Take some of the suggestio... 
Getting off the merry-go-round – AFRAID TO???
Of course there are others like you. Lots of us. There is nothing to be afraid of (save perhaps bankruptcy!) Why should you be done? Bird watchers are seldom 'done.' Ditto for NASCAR fans, square dancers or stamp collectors. You shouldn't feel you...

DH Labs Q10 cable need advise on new connectors???
If you look closely, you will notice that these locking bananas look like they come from the same supplier that DH Labs uses. I have several pairs of these around for play time and backup. While they aren't WBTs, they are quite well made and inexp...

Gregory House did a little showcasing for Thor apparently. I obviously missed some episodes. 
Tubes for BAT VK60. Need help
I'm not sure how much topology difference there is between the 60 and 75, but I switched amps a while back (still using the red bases.) That being the case, take my opinion with a healthy dose of salt. I have read lots of praise for the NOS Sylvan... 
Tubes for BAT VK60. Need help
I've not had any issues with my amp blowing fuses other than once during an output tube failure.Andy's advice is good, as is Dan's. The commercial grade NOS stuff is the best place to look for 6SN7 replacement. I replaced the front two positions w... 
Tubes for BAT VK60. Need help
Jim,I'm a little late to the party, but in the future, you may want to consider ATSI for a matched & tested set of 6C33C-Bs. I bought my last quad there and have had really good luck (they have increased in price, though.) I believe he's the o...

IS AUDIO ART CABLES THE REAL THING
On one hand, I understand there have been a score of posts about products that fall into the category of 'flavor of the nano-second' as of late. On the other, Darren Hovsepian putting some of his knowledge and experience into what appears to be a ... 
New Von Schweikert VR SR4 mk11 Cream or Crap ???
If it is the same as the jr, the spike thread is an M8. I looked for a while for something more substantial (read: less pot metal) to no avail. If I was more ambitious, I would probably just replace the threaded inserts with a size that would acce...
