Opinions on speakers for Mcintosh MC-30?
I have connected my MC30s to a pair of QUAD ESL57 with great results,and also to heavily modded JBL L200s. 
I'd probably lose this bet....
I once suggested a bet that I would identify 20 out of 20 different interconnects,if listened to them in my system,and allowed to take notes-as I do not trust my short term memory any more-for how long has that been the case?There was one characte... 
What ecc82 for preamp
This is a problematic tube because of high distortion.I have had better results with 7316,5814A,E80CC-if the additional heater current needs can be safely met,and Telefunken ECC802S. 
Removing tube from EE Minimax Dac
I use 2 pinkies.Works best. 
Any of my existing amps work on Quad ESL-57's
Look for McIntosh MC30s.Magical with RCA 1614s and 8 ohm output tap for 15 watts.I have heard dozens or more amps with 57s.

Will a PS 300 provide enough juice?
I have a PS300.If you draw more than 200 watts,it would overheat-especially with an amplifier.The PS 300 should be used only with sources,even preamps are slowed down by it.I would try using the Primaluna with a top notch isolation transformer rat...
