After a long time building, swapping, going back on ideas, I finally finished the system I had in my head. 
This will keep me happy...just for a while....

Hello Alby, I had the pleasure of hearing Klipschorns around 40 years ago, and while I've forgotten many things that've happened in life since then, I haven't forgotten those Klipschorns.

I've built a Transcendent Sounds Grounded Grid preamp (with upgraded output caps, milspec silver hookup wire, Goldpoint  step attenuator and switches, NOS Amperex 12AU7 tubes, and Bent Audio remote volume control), and while I love how it sounds, what I'd really like to try is the BeePre 300B. I have a 300B SET I use to drive my Tannoys, along with the GG preamp, so the 300B sound in a preamp is something I'd really like to try, but the BeePre was a little too rich for my blood.

Great system, you've spent your money where it really counts.

Enjoy, regards,
