EL34 tubes- alternates to matched octet for Primaluna HP dialogue premium
@lloydc - you must have never been to Upscale Audio store or website. They have plenty of matched NOS tubes. I just bought 8 NOS Mullard CV4003 12AU7 and will order 12 new high grade Brimar’s for my amps. I definitely stay away from eBay sellers f...

Speakers "Disappearing"
@rb61- here’s basic speaker placement steps.  start with 3ft from your wall, move forward until you reach the desired bass. Place your L/R speaker 6ft apart. Your listening chair about 6-8ft away creating a triangle. Make small incremental changes... 
Inexpensive Tube Amps
PrimaLuna, their Dialogue Premium HP amplifier is to die for. Absolutely stunning sound and dynamic and built better than amps costing 3 times as much. Truly the best amp my Magnepans have ever played with. Glorious sound.Cheers

It Looks Like Streaming May Be The Future

PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium Preamplifier. DESTROYS SPEAKERS!!
I own a PL Dialogue Premium Preamp and HP monoblock amp driving my 15k Magnepan 20.7's and they sound amazing. I would suspect it was not the fault of the preamp but something else. Like following the basic process of how to shutdown your amp, or ... 
Primaluna Dialogue poremium, Rogue Cronus Magnum II or Jolida 801...who can advise me?
@jetter I have the HP's as mono's driving my Maggie's and they sound glorious. I started it off with one HP driving my Maggie's and it sounded pretty damn good at moderate levels. Maggie's are 86db so I had to go with the HP version. What speakers...
