THIS is making me INSANE! I just tweaked the LM210 I had out the other day for a demo with the DeVore 0/96's, and it is keeping me from going outside, in this beautiful evening weather I'm having here. I replaced the stock 300B tubes, and the small input tubes in front, the 12AX7's. The factory ones are very fine, mind you. These Psvane 300B's and NOS GE 12AX7's are thru the roof! Rachmaninoff Sym #1 is a bombastic tour de force. In private dealer parlance, this is TITS UP, Balls to the Wall, okay, family time here, this is Holy Toledo good. With the brownies I just made possibly lip smacking good! Bless you tube rollers everywhere. Sometimes it gets mucked up - family hour- and sometimes it works out perfect. This is perfect.
Just to let you know, and give you a quick tease, there will be new products coming in the future months. From both the Axpona and Munich Hifi shows came news and some static displays from the likes of Auralic, Ayre, Well Tempered Lab, Audioquest, and even Vandersteen. So stayed tuned for details. I am very excited by some of the news, yawns for some, but you know me, I'll only pick the best to represent for my customers. To quickly dispel some rumors, the news from Auralic is all good. There will be a reference line of DAC/streamer, two boxes to start, followed by two more that will complete the stack. They are really going all out on this one, so my fingers are crossed for their sweet sounding success. And the Vega DAC and Aries streamer ARE still in the lineup, so there- good is good is good. More on the Ayre products soon.....can I just say now....affordable?
