buying (NOS) tubes online
@inna i see you deleted your post about not liking Brent Jesse. Why?      my vote is for Brent and Andy for NOS. I try to never buy off eBay because anyone can put down test results and even show a picture of the tube tester that is biased wrong... 
Experience with Modwright products?
Great company. Owned a phono pre from them and it’s one of the best I’ve heard. Ph150.  
Best preamp under 1500$ freya+ , cary slp03 ?
Firstly, for what you’re going, for I was just change the dac  
Dac that has tone and timing?
Lampizator. I’d grab the cheapest one you could find. They all are amazing. I like them much more than mhdt dacs that I’ve heard quite of few of.   
Lampizator Questions
Tannoy, probably because in each dac the best implementation was used after R&D. Maybe the Horizon circuitry benefitted best with that type of  tube is my best guess.      
Best Class D GaNFET Amp Comparison. Who to invite?

Audio Research Ref75 se
What size is your room? Also you could get a regular ref75 for way less and pop in kt150’s for 90-95% of the sound quality of the SE version..

Devore 0/96 - Integrated AMP help
First watt amps are really good especially the J2. I use the audio research ref 75 with my orangutans and love the combo. VTL 5.5 as a pre. I liked the line magnetic 518ia set amp too but not my cup of tea for all genres of music. The refs 75 defi...
