45 Type Push/Pull
Apprently they are rare- I have a friend that made a custom PP2a3 that could be converted to PP45 (I already have an SET 45 from him which is great- it is an awesome tube), so I am curious how it would sound as well. I can only guess that if the r... 
Review: Tube Research Labs Dude Tube preamp
I run three systems, and am searching out a third preamp to go along with my orig 'old-school' Dude and a custom-Audio Note pre. Am thinking a second Dude, or ramping it up and trying this apparently incredible SMC VRE-1c. Believe it or not, a dea... 
Top Speaker Cables for SET System- under $5k used
Thanks everyone- agreed that silver (very good silver) might be the way to go here. Charles1dad, what a coincidence- I was thinking of Ocellia actually! I have a 1m pair of their silver reference interconnect coming soon. I also hear the Ocellia p... 
Review: Tube Research Labs Dude Tube preamp
Hi- quick question- did you try the Tube Distinctions (Tom Evans) 'Soulmate' preamp and compared it to the Dude with the same amplification? I currently use a TRL Dude (original version) in one system now but am considering a Soulmate along with T... 
Gabriel Gold IC's are they really this good?
Steve- I noticed the Halo IC's are still not listed on the website- when is that coming? Also- let me know if you are interested in a beta tester- I own Reflection IC's and SC's, and would like to see how the Halo compares...

Best Tube Pre-Amp under 4K
Here are four options I would consider at that price point (or slightly less used):1) TRL (Tube Research Labs) 'The Dude' should definitely be considered at this price point- I thought it was fantastic.2) Air Tight ATC-2 (plus you'll have change l... 
The Big Ayon Triton KT-88 Int Amp- tube rolling?
Max- stick with what you have- good choice! 
Audio Research Reference Linestages
Yes- I have a Ref One, plus there are two local friends of mine who both find their Ref One's to be superior to any of the newer Ref series (except the Anniversary no doubt!) 
Isolation Transformer or Power Regenerator
does the Equi=Tech meet Canadian code standards as well? 
Review: Tube Research Labs Dude Tube preamp
Last time I spoke with Paul, he mentioned this new SS amp, interesting name- 'Little Lebowski'- I got a kick out of that! 
JVC XRCDs -- your experience?
Ahendler- which ones are 'bright' or, to be avoided? 
Gabriel Gold vs Marigo vs NBS
used Gabriel Gold (the higher-end Rapture and Reflection) sell very quickly on the used market here- and they are not cheap- that should tell you something. I have tried them in several systems- they are quite good. I have not yet compared with Ja...

You need to move up to at least the GG Rapture 'r', or better yet, the Reflections...
