Cary SLP-05 - rectifier tube questions
A SS rectifier doesn't ruin the peamp, does it? The Cary 05 has a slow warm up period.. I wonder how the SS rectifier will do with this process.Any suggestions as where to get these Mullards, also?Thanks,Joey

Rgurney, I checked that site out.... these are SS rectifiers? Doesn't this defeat the purpose of a tube rectifier? How does it sound?Joey 
Rogue Metis pre amp
I don't recall mine being that loud...This is at what volume and is there any audio track playing when this occurs?How about when you use the volume remote... do you hear a buzzing noise?

Any other suggestions? Places to buy? 
Rogue Metis pre amp
Owned the Metis. It is rather noisy for a tube preamp.... have the Cary SLP-05 now and it is much quieter in all aspects. The Metis is a good pre, it gave me a good taste of having a tube pre paired with a SS amp.... very nice combo I think.Do not...

I knew tubes made a difference, I just didn't figure that the rectifier tube would. Rgurney... the WZ68 works for 5AR4 sockets? 
Review: Cary SLP-05 vs SLP-98
Stgiannino, You mention the 98 is more analytical - that sounds to me like "thin and lacking in musical timbre". That's exactly what I heard.05 wins to my ears, no doubt.
