Best tube amp and setup for me?
At 97.5 Spl a Atma-Sphere S-30 and an Atma-Sphere UV-1 would be an awesome setup for those.  
Best tube preamplifier for under $15k
@inna I am guessing you’ve never heard an Atma-Sphere MP-3 with all the options. Or the MP-1. Although the MP-1 starts there and goes to more than double. So that’s out. But a full custom Atma-Sphere MP-3 built by Ralph’s team at Atma-Sphere is ve...

I’d have to say Atma-sphere. One for sonic qualities.... and two build quality. Atma-sphere is as good as your going to get. With impeccable Customer Service. 
Atma-Sphere Owners, MP-3 Upgrade
I didn’t notice as significant difference when I did them to my amps. But the preamp, I thought it was significant. 
Atma-Sphere Owners, MP-3 Upgrade
I have talked to Ralph on this subject a lot. I have had M60’s upgraded, MA-1’s upgraded and now MP-3. Ralph has never said to me that the Caddocks aren’t worth it. If that was the case I doubt he’d sell them. What he has said.... Is that there ar... 
Atma-Sphere Owners, MP-3 Upgrade

Atma-Sphere Owners, MP-3 Upgrade
Ahh yes you did.... Lol... Anyway, it has Vcap ODAM and Power Regulation. Point to point wiring. And if you ever want to sell it. Pleasegive me the first chance. Only piece I ever regret selling.

Didn’t you by that UV-1 from me?  
V-Cap ODAM: What the Future Sounds Like
Atma-Sphere, Ralph Karsten has installed Vcaps in much of my systems. I had a UV-1 serial number 002 I regret selling that had ODAM in. Today I picked up my PAS 2 that he modified and used ODAM in. And I will say I do love the ODAM caps.  My MP3 h... 
Klipsch Forte III--Pleasantly Surprised
As far as your tubes are concerned. I reallyliked the 6550’s vs EL34 and other tubes. Just a thought 
Atma-Sphere MP-3
No it doesn’t have phono.... All digital here. Running Roon with a nuc and hard drive.  
Pros and cons of vintage Dynaco ST-70
Yes he did my amplifier and I am very very happy with it. He and his crew does really nice work.  
Herbie’s Audio Lab still in Business?
Ok, I got my Herbie’s order today. So maybe they just have shitty CS skills. Ordered over the weekend. Shipped Tuesday and received today.... can’t complain about that.  
Herbie’s Audio Lab still in Business?
Looks like according to the tracking it’s on the way and will be here Thursday. Crazy... 
Herbie’s Audio Lab still in Business?
Well I took a chance. Sent more emails, called and left more messages. But after reviewing some other posts..... I placed an order. Hope it goes well...
