Glad to see this beloved amp is still out there and kicking so well for many folks. Ive had mine since 1998 and loved every second of ownership. Until about three weeks ago it still ran like a champ. Tri-tube mod etc from the outset. For the last ...

Frank as I expected.  Nice!  Thank you for trying that. Glad it improved your systemonce again. You're like me. I listen very early in morning. It's the only time I have enough energy or lowest pain levels to be able to do so. I have to wait until...

Hi Frankthx for giving it a shot and being so great!  It's you that's the reason we're trying this stuff to begin with (starting this great discussion). Ive used many disc mats over the years especially versions from Marigo. My current drive -PS A...

Hi FrankSo you didn't follow the all the way up to the top of the tube placement like the ARC rings?  Did you try them there?FWIW on all the RX rings I have in my system I've never found the 1/3 placement to be optimum. On my amp on all four 12AX7...

Hi Oregonpapa. How high on the 6h30 tube should the Herbies be placed?  1/8"from top of tube or all the way up?  All the best.  
Stillpoints and Wilson Maxx II or III speakers

Stillpoints and Wilson Maxx II or III speakers
Hi, guys. I would like to jump into this one if I may. I have Ultra 5's under my speakers (threaded inserts), Ultra SS on Ultra bases under my rear speakers and under both of my PS Audo P10 Power Plants. I also have Ultra Mini's under my Cable/DVR... 
Shunyata ztron power vs cx cables...
+1. I agree with vhiner. Shunyata is superb at the illusion closer to the live original event than any cable I have ever used. 
Shunyata ztron power vs cx cables...
I would agree with the assessments everything is system dependent, for certain. In my system that uses 5 King Cobra CX and 5 Anaconda CX PC's along with the Anaconda ZTron signal/speaker cables and Python Ztron XLR digital cable the system synergy... 
Shunyata ztron power vs cx cables...
Wig,Yeah, that is the tough part of dealing with these cables with tubes. Of course, you could procure a Cable Cooker but that is not very inexpensive, either. I lust after the Audio Research Reference 5 SE, but alas, will not enter my system unti... 
Shunyata ztron power vs cx cables...
Audioquest4life,I have not heard the ZTron AC cables, but from what I have read here and there the ZTron adds a very fast transient "jump factor" to the sound and at least one person felt they exceeded the CX series. For me, it does not matter. I ... 
Shunyata ztron power vs cx cables...
Allow me to jump in, if I may here guys and add to the fun. Vhiner and I know each other very well. We've discussed the cables for some time and collaborate quite a bit. I have King Cobra and Anaconda CX AC cables throughout and all Anaconda ZTron...
