Looking for an integrated tube amp under $2500
@timo62 Thank you for your congrats. If the Rogue with the KT77 sounds as good as it did at the dealer I’ll be very happy. Hopefully with the addition of the NOS Mullard in the preamp stage I should obtain the sound I’m looking for. I did look int...

@iopscrlMy room is not large at 13x18x6.5 plus I sit around 7’ from the speakers. I used the 34w Primaluna with no power problems.@helomech and gillatghI contacted Brent Jessee and he recommended a NOS Mullard based on my preferences.

@alucard19 I appreciate the suggestion but used various power tubes prior and still love the warm organic sound of KT77. From what I read the KT90 does not fit my bill. @rbstehno I owned a H300 prior to the Primaluna. Nice sounding amp but once I ... 
The Six Moons.com review on the Mhdt Labs Orchid DAC just went up
JanehambleTeajay is a great guy and I do consider him an AUDIO BUDDY! I contacted him several times and he always responded to my questions and inquiries. Based on his recommendations I realized we both like the same type of performance from our e...

Looking for an integrated tube amp under $2500
This afternoon I brought home a Rogue Cronus Magnum 3 from a local dealer to demo over the weekend. After a 1/2 hour warm up, I played the same music I had listened earlier on the BAT. Here are my initial impressions:-the soundstage is bit larger-...

@dweller I thought of buying a used BAT VK55 from a close friend here audiogon recently. The problem is my unit/ tv stand isn’t large enough to accommodate it. I owned separates years ago and prefer the convenience of an integrated amp with less c...

@alucardI considered the nighthawk and spoke to one of the owners. My problem is that I prefer it come in black to match my other components.@wsrrsw As I stated above the space between shelves is 8-1/2" and it's open on all sides plus my Dialogue ...

@jburidan Here's the scoop, I own a hybrid, the BAT 3000SE. I bought it used after selling the PL and wanted to try out a hybrid. It's a great sounding amp, very detailed and dynamic but I still prefer the lushness and sound stage of an all tube a...

@newbee The distance between shelves is around 8-1/2 inches plus it’s open on all sides. My previous amp was around 7” so that’s why I stated no more than 7”.@yogiboy My previous amp was a PL DP

@3I saw this unit for sale also. I contacted the seller concerning the age of the unit or a serial number but I haven't heard back from him. I'm also considering a Rogue Cronus Magnum. 
Has anyone added a small subwoofer to 2 channel and been thrilled with the result?
Casteeb, I use the JL e110 with 2 way stand mounted speakers and it sounds great. My room is 13 x 18 x7 and the 1 sub is more than enough to fill the room. I run the speakers at full range and cross over the sub at 45Hz. My speakers are rated to a...

@mechans I thought of sending the tubes to Victor but was hoping there was someone close by. I’ll call him on Monday and ask his recommendation. Thanks, Ron
