Update on Audiogon Member Almarg

Roger Paul has passed away
As I implied not much to consider, see, or hear...Human nature shows people feel intrigued when someone shows up professing to have discovered or developed something innovative or even revolutionary. Especially, when such people declare it unquest... 
how are you testing your own tubes?

Big vintage amps worth paying for and keeping for a long time
@ebm "Had Rowland 8T for many years Jeff Rowland has great service and says thats the best amp he has ever made."I always react whenever I hear someone say this.  While it's often true in other realms, when it comes to a still viable HEA manufactu...

Reference 3A MM De Capo vs Legacy Calibre
In all honesty, these queries always leave me wondering how the person asking could possibly make a good decision.The two speakers come from radically differing design perspectives, and as such, will reflect that, sonically. It’s not a question of... 
Richard Vandersteen at Audio Connection
Never understood why folks drag old threads up so long after the fact, but perhaps I ticked @jaf36 off in some former episode, and he seems pretty riled up for whatever reason today.  Anyway, here we are... Interesting to read my 12 year old words...
