VTL with KT120 tubes
They would tell you the heater windings in the transformers are inadequate and might possibly damage the transformers.  So, no, not me.  But the KT90 designs of VTL and Manley, on the other hand, are begging to be run with KT120s.

My recent experience in PayPal dispute
I had a Michigan Ebay buyer tell me that a 9/10 perfect ARC preamp I sold him might be going to need a part _in the future_ because he could hear relays click during the warmup process. This as most of us know is normal, and mentioned in the manua...

VTL 450 mystery - please help

audiphile power cords
I used to DIY power cords out of Belden and other cables, yes, including Romex. Shielded 12ga. was good too, and I was happy. They got power to the equipment from the wall, were not prone to EMI, and this all seemed really good!If you had told me ...

Aronov LS9100 monos - upgrade to VTL Deluxe 300?
I couldn't agree LESS with Marakanetz, I have had MB450, MB300s, and Wotans, and only one resistor ever went bad on ONE of my three MB450's (old, black, signature models). This cost me approx. 75$ to have fixed professionally. I have WOTANS, peopl...
