Linear Power Supply for a DAC
Could end up with lots of boxes and fat cables on my rack, but I am dedicated to having zero switching supplies in my system.  So much for all that effort on the part of manufacturers to be energy efficient... Same here. I've been thinking abou... 
Linear Power Supply for a DAC

I go back about 5-6 years with Andy and he always had primo NOS tubes delivered in a timely manner (about 1-2 weeks). There were certain times of the year he was out on tube shopping trips so the store was closed. Then there would be a backup on d...
