Hello, Ray. Nice looking amplifier! Throughout my audio journey, I have found somewhat of a soft spot for low watt tube amps. The ol' Radii 8 watter I had in SparkyII with the Focal's was one of the more favorable sounds I have heard. The 20 watt Carver amp we built up on the mountain made the same lasting impression. There is something to be said about less is more [properly paired with the right gear, of course].

Congrat's my man. I hope it sounds as good as it looks!

Tom
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

I think It sounds even better than it looks. I was telling Mark earlier I thought I had the contour selected on the Sunfire tube pre(all of my gear is running thru it right now) because the bass was so damn good only to find out I had switched the contour out. This is really a high-end piece of gear...and there is a difference. The build quality is absolutely incredible.

I'm a little annoyed about the overall condition of the unit. It was dirty, there were blemishes on that beautiful faceplate and I still haven't gotten my tubes from the PO that he assured me I'd get. I pulled all of the tubes and cleaned each one. I got some 'Liquid Glass' and cleaned the painted parts of the chassis. Today I got some Nevr-Dull and cleaner up the faceplate, control knobs and transformer covers

George I'm running the Dahlquist DQ-8s. They sound pretty damn good. Right now I'm playing a couple of Mark's discs. I played the Tubes "Remote Control" earlier. Vinyl rocks too!!

George, have you modded yours yet? I was wondering what direction you were taking.

Rumour has it Mr. deParavicini is a big fan of the Jaguar V12s which inspired the aesthetic. Cool, ain't it?
