Tube preamp topologies and music
I talked to an Audio Note dealer who said he listens to Slayer as well as drum and bass on a  Meishu (300b). no AN dealers in my state but I’m even more lost now.

What about punchy bass? I’ve was the Leben can do that.  
Tube preamp topologies and music
@dogearedaudio  thanks. I run a pair of subs off the speaker taps which I assume I could still do. I’m a fan of high efficiency speakers and would like some La Scalas at some point. I am trying to wrap my head around tubes to see where I may land.... 
Tube preamp topologies and music
Thanks all for tons of info!    I’m trying to parse things as best I can so I wanted to use an example: Air Tight ATM-2: KT88 push/pull Air Tight ATM-1: EL34 also push/pull driving 99db Klipsch heresy 4 nor make listening volume at 80db

Great thanks  
Tube preamp topologies and music
Perfect thanks. That makes sense. So Probably a push/pull design would fare better? What role do the tubes play in this say a push/pull kit-88 (Air Tight ATM-2) vs a 211 push/pull (LampizatOr)?

The new Coda S5.5 amplifier: It's a "Petite Beast"!
@johnah5  sonically what separates the new 5.5 and the #8? They are relatively close in price. I’m curious as to what would prompt one to select one vs the other.  
Technics SL-1210G Headshells, Record Weights, and Mats
@badgerdms  I have been very curious about the Origin Live weight. All the layers of wood to absorb vibrations and such makes sense to me. I may take the plunge.  
Phono cable not caps to le with preamp?
@ghdprentice ​​@lewm got home and swapped cords again. I get sound from both outputs. Playing with the ground alters the tone of the buzz a little bit that’s it. old phono preamp back in and quiet as a tomb.   seems like sloppiness here but I... 
Phono cable not caps to le with preamp?
@lewm it’s a buzz. Like overdriven guitar sort of. I put the old phono back in (Andover SpinStage) and it’s dead silent again.   ill play with it tonight and see what I can glean from it. I’m in touch with the importer as well.   edit: forgot... 
Phono cable not caps to le with preamp?
I just had a thought. Since the phono and power supply are in wood boxes instead of metal would they’ve more susceptible to interference?  
Phono cable not caps to le with preamp?
@ghdprentice  I have done this yes. I also tried various different cables and plugged into different outlets. I also moved the power supply as far away as the umbilical allows and moved the unit itself away from everything else. my cables are shi... 
Transimpedance has too much gain?
@pinwa  thanks. I may do that.
