|Linear Tube Audio Aero DAC |
I had the opportunity to hear the prototype of this DAC in my system months ago. I was very impressed by how analog-sounding it was, so very musical. I'm told it's been tweaked and improved since then. I can't describe it as a tube DAC since the B...
|Integrated for TAD ME1: Luxman, Accuphase or Soulnote?|
+1 for the CODA and used it with the TAD ME-1
|No love for Legacy Audio|
I have only heard the Legacy speakers at Audio shows but it has never been good.
|Top Ten Tube PreAmp of all time?|
My best preamp to date: Backert Labs Rhythm 1.3
|Timbernation Platform Problems|
I had similar issues with them.
|I'm going to buy my first tube amp. I need honest blunt opinions|
I owned those speakers a few years back. I tried a few tube amps but the best matchup was a SS Musical Fidelity M6PRX Power Amp. If I were to go with a tube amp I try a Linear Tube Audio ZOTL40.
|Conrad Johnson Classic 120se vs. Linear Tube Audio 40 Reference Amps |
I don't have any experience with Conrad Johnson but extensive experience with David Berning and LTA. I have owned several non-OTL tube amps and the clarity and transparency along with the sweet EL34 midrange of my ZOTL40 amp surpasses them all. I ...
|PS Audio Power Plant P3 to P12|

@tommylion I do have the Lumniscate PC from the wall to my P-15 power conditioner and from P-15 to preamp, dac, streamer, TT, etc. It sounds great. There is no downside.
|Is Townshendisolation.com a scam site?|
I just got a pair of super tweeters from them. They were slow to respond and send me a ship date, but when I mentioned canceling the order, they got things moving. I love these super tweeters.

|Morrow power cables|
I owned the top-of-the-line Morrow cables, and they're OK, but since then, I have bought much better cables, including Townshend F-1 Fractals, Ceriuos Technologies Tech, etc. Morrow is not the end-all, just saying.
|Class A or Class D solid-state amplifiers (modern designs)|
@yyzsantabarbara I was never able to hear the AGD Gran Vivace but the Audions were superb. I now have custom modded Altec Lansing 1570B mono blocks.
|Anyone own Linear Tube Audio Amps?|
Some folks like old tube amp sound because of the transformer distortion. You will not find such distortion in ZOTL amps. I can say that I have a very early version of the ZOTL40 and have had it upgraded with the latest “plus” mods. Early on there...
|Good Suggestions for Tube Amps under 6k|
