Why does pulling out main speakers from wall improve sound?
In my opinion, listeners should just listen and make up their own minds. I think the problem in audio and other subjects is that people have too many premeditated ideas based on things they just read rather than just listening. Who cares if it goe... 
First Watt SIT3 vs Dynakit ST35
Hi pryso thanks for the feedback, sounds like you’ve been around this long compared to me, only 7 years. There’s a couple of my demos on YouTube under “ drD E”    
First Watt SIT3 vs Dynakit ST35
moofoo, thanks for sharing. Always happy to hear about ones that are less known.Too many nuts on the Hollywood red carpet.   bdp24, I rather like how you put that. I would describe the 35 as uncolored.

  pinwa 116 posts 06-15-2022 at 12:53am  I've never heard either amp but I have to question your use of the Silver 8 and F15 as reference speakers.  I've built the Silver 8 in an oversized Caintuck style baffle and paired it with a sub and i... 
First Watt SIT3 vs Dynakit ST35
When I ordered the second ST35 I told Kenny I wanted it made exactly like the one I have, down to every cap, resister, whatever. He asked me for a couple of numbers to make sure it was the same, so Kenny must also be doing something I’m really lik... 
First Watt SIT3 vs Dynakit ST35
dpd24, I’d sure be curious what guitarists have to say about the sound signature of the EL84. It’s quite unlike anything else I’ve heard so far, I can’t quite grasp it yet. Did Roger express any kind of opinion on the sound signature of the EL84. ...

Jason, Is the EL84 generally used for guitar amps of less power? If so, does it still work well in your opinion?  
First Watt SIT3 vs Dynakit ST35
Jason, it's interesting you mentioned the EL84 in reference to guitar amps. I hear they're very popular in fact a guitarist buddy of mine mentioned that too. Thanks for sharing.

Charles, I’m planning to see a jazz venue soon. That must be a fantastic experience!   ejlif, yea, the Zen is an absolutely charming little amp that took me time to truly appreciate and understand. I have a brand new custom made ST-35 coming nex...

Decware SE84UFO Zen vs First Watt SIT3
Hi sns, Thank you for the kind words. The only 300b I’ve heard was a model from yaqin. The 300b I’m mainly curious about is the Line Magnetic 210ia. That may be next on my list because I’ve always wanted a 300b and there’s a YouTuber that does ma... 
can Line Magnetic 210ia work in US?
I appreciate all the input guys. Happy to buy in US but they charge an extra $2000. Pretty hefty markup. Sounds like this is more complicated than anticipated and I can’t find a US version anywhere.

I think we both know the  Placebo effect was merely a metaphor. This listener believes one device was sounding better than another when in fact it was the same device all along.   
Amir and Blind Testing
Haha, it’s placebo.

Jssmith, I appreciate your comments but I wouldn’t trust Amir’s opinion on judging the sound of anything. He’s obviously a horrible listener and the pure fact is he’s a measuring geek. He knows nothing about the quality of the sound of products.
