New York Aciustics?  That really brings back memories.  I bought a lot of drivers from Jim Cox and he was gracious enough to spend many hours on the phone with me as we discussed different options....

Wow, and Double Wow!  That is quite an impressive room and system and obviously the product of much work on your part.  Can you share a few more details about the speaker design including your choi...

Very nice system!  I have heard the Meishu Silver a couple times at Hifi shows and liked it each time.  I also really like AN cables.  Like you I have SPx speaker cable and it is the best I have ev...

Yes, more details on the FMI Little Maestro please.  I sort of lost track of FMI during Bob's later years.  The last model I heard was an early Premiere but I know he continued with various models ...

New speakers!  For the past week I have been listening to my new YL Acoustic/Jensen speakers that were designed and built by Deja Vu Audio in McLean Virginia.  They are built around a midrange horn...

Chris, are you saying you tried a 6SN7 in place of the 6EM7?  They are NOT comparable tubes.  The 6EM7 is what is sometimes called a dissimilar tube; it has two triode sections but they are differe...

Very nice looking system!  What finish is that on the Harbeths?  And what type of equipment cabinet are you using?  They both look great.

Besutiful system indeed!  And I am sure it sounds as good as it looks. Having Audio Note gear throughout should provide a special synergism.

Preconceptions can be dangerous.  In the past, I have preferred the sound of AC heating for preamp and power amp tubes instead of DC heating.  Therefore, when I revised my phono preamp to use ...

Agear, thanks for the nice comments.  The combination of old vinyl, tubes and vintage high-efficiency speakers continues to be very satisfying to my ears.

I made an interesting change to my phono preamp, changing the second stage tube from a 5687 to either a 27 or 56.  I have a lot of 27 tubes left over from my Emotive Erato days, and it's been ...

Very nice looking system!  I really like the look of the low-slung 2-shelf rack.  Is it really an IKEA?

I recently added Audio Note ISIS power cords for my linestage and power amps.  They are a very nice addition---smooth, neutral, detailed and dynamic.

I have been experimenting with the new Audio Note Silver Tantalum resistors in a few critical places.  So far they have been a distinct improvement over the resistors used previously which include ...

Thanks for posting the description of your stand.  It looks very nice indeed.  I have a question about the shelf material.  It appears the builder used a different type of wood for the perimeter ar...

Charles, I just posted a follow-up note on my system page about the Ocellia power cord.  It turns out to be much better than I realized.  It just needed a better sounding IEC inlet on the preamp it...

It turns out the Ocellia power cord is better than I thought it was.  A while back Charles1dad asked me about it and I posted that it sounded good but it didn't impress me as much as the Ocellia in...

Jet, good to hear the screen regulation seems to be working for you. I know your wife is probably right that you should leave the amps alone for a while, but I am curious nevertheless what you will...

Nice report Jet! I look forward to hearing what you think of the regulator for the screen voltage.

I really like the sound of Genalex reissue KT-77 tubes but my experience is limited to push-pull designs. I have never used a 12AU7 except as cathode follower so can't help there.

I have a couple questions concerning the mods to your HF-35. Did Stuart change the input tube to a 12AX7 instead of EF-86? And did he change the amps to fixed bias, i.e. adjustable bias, as opposed...
