Used Red rose r3 monitor speakers, I’ve been desiring this Speakers for yrs and they showed at good price, to add to my Speakers collections. Used Tyr  Nordost  1 Speakers cable, I heard them at Axpona lin the technic room and I like them.

Recently purchased a Cary Audio SLI-100 that replaced a Cary Audio SLI-80 signature model that served me very well for the last 8 years and I may sell. Both great sounding amps, but the SLI-100 definitely adds some special sauce. Clean, powerful and warm. Cary Audio made their name in tubes and it shows.

Whammerdyne DGA-1 Stereo Amp: pair of NOS Sylvania 2A3 power tubes; a NOS Amperex BB 6DJ8 input tube; and the optional wider band output transformers. 4.3 watts of excellent power!
