Best integrated tube amplifier, under $3,000.00. No phono needed. Could be used, too.d
I would also recommend contacting John Rutan at audio connection. I recently purchased the newer Rogue Cronus Magnum III from him with KT77 tubes instead of the standard KT120. I prefer the sound of the KT77s which is warmer and has a beautiful mi... 
Synergistic Research Black Box -
@ozzy Since you own both types of FEQ, is the X4 a sonic improvement over the original? 
Dazed & Confused
@tablejockey I agree that CTTE is one of the worst recordings. I remember buying the LP when it was first released and could barely listen to it. It was so harsh and brittle that you can compare it to nails on a chalkboard. 
Is it even possible to set up a system in 12x12 room?
Paul,I had to relocate my system into my daughters old bedroom which is 12x12x8. My speakers are placed about 3-1/2 ft from the front wall and 3 ft from the sides walls so the speakers are 6 ft apart. My sitting position is about 1-1/2 ft from the... 
Who remembers audio from the time when ...
It was 1969, my older brother was in Vietnam and I would use his portable Zenith record player which he received for HS graduation. The turntable would fold down and the speakers were on hinges to spread them apart to listen to stereo. Wow it was ...

Worth pursuing analog sound from digital?
Pick up a MHDT Orchid R2R Dac for $1100 from LTA. It sounds great and is better than my previous PS Audio Direct Stream Dac which lists for $5k. It comes with 4 different digital inputs plus it has a tube stage. Buy a NOS WE2C51 or WE296A tube for... 
Why a separate DAC?

To Equi-Core or Not to Equi-Core? That is the question!
I own the 1800 for a few years without any problems plus it sounded better than my previous PS Audio P3. It’s a bargain for his asking price. 
Looking for an integrated tube amp under $2500
@rollintubesI'm also concerned since the Rogue outputs 100w with the stock KT120 and the PL only 40w. Since I'll be using KT77 tubes, per Rogue the bias will be reduced from 35 to 30 but I'm thinking of reducing it further to 25. While auditioning...

Looking for an integrated tube amp under $2500
helomechThanks for the recommendations and I will consider if the Mullards don't work out. I called Rogue for an update and the amp should be ready by the end of next week. They plan to install the KT77 and test the amp for 24 hours to ensure ther...
