Anyone else order Caladans from Clayton Shaw?
@vthokie83  that’s great news. Hopefully my set will arrive in a few weeks. Interested to hear first impressions and your system makeup. I have 3 different amps, 3 preamps and 1 integrated to experiment with so can’t wait for the fun to begin.  Ch... 
Newer Blues Artists or Recordings
There’s a Hot Tuna box set out with 2 sets from the Sweetwater and 1 set from Japan. The recording is really good. Jorma Kaukonen is on guitarist/vocals and Jack Casady’s bass is a standout. These guys were early Jefferson Airplane members that we...

Speakers to pair with Quicksilver mid mono
I own QS Mid Monos with NOS Tesla EL34s. My Zu Dirty Weekends sound great paired with them so I might look at the smaller footprint Zu DSWs.

Anyone else order Caladans from Clayton Shaw?
So Clayton called me back this evening to let me know that he had my order.  There was a snafu with the company that processes the credit card receipts.  Seems like all is good for now.  They are not building any units yet.  He says probably in a ...

New Pass Labs Go To
I was as surprised as the rest of you that he retired after the move to AZ, but I guess that was his plan all along. I bought a SIT3 from Mark a few years back and probably one his last XA25s over this past summer. The XA25 was a lightly used demo...
