Don't know what's wong with me


I went on this rampage, bought 300B ,845, amps to get more of the 45 magic. Should have been looking more efficient speakers! Shame on me. Nothing like a 45 SET. I knew better but still tried to better it. My James Burgess 45 amp still rules. After I got my Audio Nirvana speakers did I realize the ways of error. I also even learned that a preamp can still help. You can still learn something after all these years. Please forgive me 45 SET people for I've seen the errors of my ways.

Bill,
The first time I heard those Japanese 845 PSET amps driving the Crescendo I knew they were special. It was at CES a few years ago. I listened to them a good 45 minutes. The next day I revisited that room and stayed over an hour. Both times I was able to play music I brought with me. Just a very involving presentation of music. I've heard that pairing again at other shows, same positive result. I'll gladly keep my current system but I could be very happy with the Triode Corp and AZ Crescendo as well. There were many more expensive systems I've heard that weren't nearly as musically/emotionally satisfying.
Charles,
First it was the 300b. Then it was the 2A3. Next was the type 45...

Its not actually the tubes themselves, its the bandwidth with the output transformer involved that is why the lower powered tubes sound better.

Theoretically the best sounding SET would thus be the one that made no power at all :)
