Lynn makes note of hearing Purifi Class D amps at the show in a favorable way.   I did hear Atma-Sphere's new GaN mono amps driving the the Tekton Moabs and I thought they sounded excellent.  I could easily see a synergy between the Raven and Ralp...

First things first.   I share Lynn's sorrow for Edisoncarter's perceptions of how he was treated in the room and honor his impressions, with the exception of this thread being a shrill for their gear.  But personally being camped out in the room o...

Understood.  The Kootenai is a fantastic amp, as I know having one.  Let your pocketbook be your guide, but to be honest, Don and Lynn's 300b monos are in a whole different realm of musical excellence.  Maybe you can come hear them at the Seattle ...

Wig, Dandy system you have, for sure.  You have nominal 4 ohm speakers and if the Kootenai drives them to your satisfaction, then the 300b Statement monos will drive them as well, with an astonishing clarity that will be simply stunning.  Cheers.

Don and Thom, Gents, with all due respect, an 81-83 db SPL from my speakers conveys none of the emotional aspect of my music so I prefer it more around 88-90 db, thereabouts.  I want a visceral impact to the sound of my system and 83 db does not ...

Lynn, Oh yea of little faith...  Very few speakers play nearly as well as the Spatials in less-than-perfect rooms and your front end will be tremendous so great sound is a foregone conclusion.  Your room is gonna sound sensational and I am going ...

Lynn, My local tube tech was good friends with Charlie who lived near Sacramento and he had immense respect for him.  He published a magazine which I am sure you aware of, 100% tube centric.  I never met him but he was a legend in this neck of th...

Ralph, Your comments on this this thread, as on any thread, are extremely informative.   I have not had the pleasure of hearing your new affordably-priced Class D monos and maybe they will be playing at the Seattle show later this month so I coul...

Ricevs, Pardon my incorrect reference to my amp:  it was the VTV AMPLIFIER Stereo Purifi Audio 1ET400A Amplifier.  The guy that bought it from me was over the moon happy with the sound of the amp.

Charles, As a 300b amp owner yourself,  you know whereof I speak.  Expect a report back on this thread in due time when the Cube speakers are run in.  Some folks agree that Cube's driver technology is one of the biggest leaps forward in speaker d...

Gents, I have had several Class D amps in my system in the past 10 years, and the earlier versions of them were dry and lifeless after extended listening sessions.  In the last couple of years, I had the VTV Audio EVO 1200 Class D amp with the Pu...

I rather think that there is inherent magic in the employment of 300b tubes, which I discovered with my Willsenton 300b amp with all of 8 wpc.  It drove my Spatial just fine... until it didn't.  With these monos, there is no such limitation on db ...

@jeff_ss Being an owner of Don's Vahalla tube integrated, might your "handle" more appropriately be "@jeff_tubes"?   ;-)    I have the Triode Masters and heard the Sapphires and was not compelled to upgrade.  However, the X-series is a different...

Since rolling out of bed in the morning, your amps have been filling my room with amazing sounds, and I appreciate greatly the design thought that went into them, the technical derivations of which is way over my head. The amps, now with the exce...

Great response, Ralph, answering questions I have long wondered about.  My Sachs monos put out a fair amount of heat so I mounted a couple of noiseless computer fans at the back of my rack to dissipate the heat to a degree.
