where I can buy tubes to my ALLNIC PRE (3A/110A and 3A/109B)
Kevalin should be able to help you. John there is very communicative.   
Solid State Low powered Amplifiers
Atma-sphere Class D and be done with it. Zero heat. Solved my upstairs summertime heat issue. I'll never sell them and they surpassed my BKK250 sonically.   
A Few Nice Words For Upscale Audio
@thecarpathian Not everything is about you, this is a thread about Upscale Audio. Go back to your cage.   
A Few Nice Words For Upscale Audio
@audphile1 hahahah   Upacale rules, Kat there had always given solid advice and hooked me up with shirts and special prices. Looks liked she moved on to SME, but she was a solid asset and why I always go to Upacale first.   
Young audiophile metal head looking to level up speaker choice
@audphile1 you'd be surprised at how well recorded and pressed metal bands are. I highly encourage you to pick a few LP's up. I'd always heard that saying and I have a ton of metal and punk records that sound fantastic and are recorded, mastered a... 
Speaker Spikes - Working Principle
@amtprod Exactly! Sometimes it's hard to describe your scenario and experience, but pictures tell it all. For someone just starting into the decoupling arena like my wife I can highly recommend them. I've read the Townshend's take things a step fu...

Speaker Spikes - Working Principle
So just an update on the Herbie's spike decoupling gliders I picked up, they're fanatic. Upper frequencies are cleaner, more detailed and have much more depth and nuance to them. Mid frequencies didn't change much for me. Lower register bass notes... 
Young audiophile metal head looking to level up speaker choice
I listen to primarily hardcore, punk and grind and my room is smaller than yours at 9x13. I’d recommend any room this small to load up on bass traps and at treat first reflections with anything you can afford. Bass bloat was a problem in my smalle... 
When you can't unhear !
I just purchased a set of cone spike decoupling gliders from Herbie's and I can't believe the benefits it's provided being upstairs on carpeted subfloors. I should have started with speaker isolation before system upgrades and I'm sure it would ha... 
Duplicate Serial Numbers
If they're "pretty high end" and they told you they can't keep their serial numbers sequential without duplication, I'd have a hard time believing they'd support or warranty their products if something happened. Major red flag for the brand.   
Speaker Spikes - Working Principle
@goose i see. Mind telling me more specifically what the Herbie's did to your system, how it didn't work for you and how the Townshend's did? I've been eyeing the Townshend products, but am starting with the gliders first to see the impact. I'm ho... 
MICHI 8 Amp(s)
Hey Ozzy, mind telling us more about how they compare to your past amps? Going from atma-sphere and pass to michi has me curious.  
My New Year’s Wish for my fellow audiophiles.
Positive messages, I dig it. Happy 2024 to all.   
Manley Chinook SE MK2
@lewm my Chinook, which I believe was the mk1, was really silent. Not noisy at all.  Anyone that had a noisy Chinook, in my opinion, needs to investigate tubes. Unless they consider ear to speaker silence a must. The Chinook was the first tubed ph...
