If you have to ask, I almost guarantee it's too pricey. I think something in the $5-7k range~

Well, in the meantime, you could always pick up a set of these, and see what you think.
Just let me know what credit card you want them put on. 8)

Re: Silver-1 Tube Preamp - !!! PROJECT ON HOLD !!!

well let me see 5,000 or 20,000 that seems like even money to me, if they are so good why you trying to sell them, oooh i get it you are being smart you see i don't need a tube amp i am in the next year or so looking for a really nice PRE-AMP. so when the ones that are advertised come into production i might be able to afford one, well maybe if i had your permission it seems

Re: Silver-1 Tube Preamp - !!! PROJECT ON HOLD !!!

Even if i could afford something like that i don't think my house is big enough. i am not jealous of too much i have lets see 1/ 800 monoblock, 1/ 500 monoblock, each side, 1/ 380 wpc*2 channels and a 250 wpc* 2 channels what is that 1900 some watts per side 2 speakers are 6 foot high and 4 foot wide and the others almost 25 inches (combined) of woofer and 18 inches(combined) midrange each side almost forgot and 20" of subwoofer i have played with the crossovers so the slopes don't interfere too much and i avoid almost all cancellation you normally have with multi speaker systems. so i really aint hurting for sound just moving toward the tube area to add and match the things i have that were made for tube equipment to be ran by tube equipment. anyway my wife would not let me buy those beauties even if i could afford them i do believe it is all insured for just under 15,000 so everything i got don't even touch what is on the table but mine sounds great also, but not perfect as i bet those do. you better get a stronger table looks like they have cracked yours already
