Description

I have had so many speakers over the past 30 years, Kef, Quads, Martin Logan, Raidho, Spendor, various Sonus Faber.   Gone back and forth from tubes to solid state and back to tubes.   The constant over the past 5 years has been the DCS gear.   It was so good, I ditched the vinyl.   The Audio Note speakers let me use tubes which after all these years are clearly superior, at least to my ears.  When I want to rock I use the VTL’s and when I want some vocal or jazz, I use the Frankensteins.    Its good to have two types of amps when you want to change it up.   The VTL’s are in the system most of the time.      Not much needs fixing here.  Maybe a real rack down the road or a better preamp.

That's quite a testimony about DCS.  I always wondered about it and instinctively knew it was top shell stuff, just never heard it.

Enjoy!!!

Coincident Frankenstein 300B. A universally lauded amp rarely seen for sale. Used in an Audio Note Franken-system much like mine. 

This is a system I’d like to hear. 

Kudos.

Amplification flexibility is a great luxury. Your system looks to be quite accomplished and those lovely tiles/pavers must aid in keeping your “valve” amps cool.

Skypunk. Enough with the snarky comments. This is two in a row I’ve viewed you dogging on people’s setups. Low class.

Awesome looking system and cool you have two amp choices I'm sure both drive those E's really well.
