Ordered a Willsenton R300
gregdude, I do use Don's preamp, being the 3rd purchaser of his initial version and now with the latest and greatest version.  It is a fantastic match for the Kootenai.   I bought a Wells Audio Innamorata SS amp earlier this year -- by far the gr...

I was an early purchaser of the LS50 and I struggled to make them sing with a 175 wpc Plinius SS integrated amp.  I agree with Charles1dad that the R300 would not be a good match.

Good for you.   I note that my expected delivery time period is between 11/10 and 11/29.

Charles1dad, Don gave me quite a detailed summary of the internals of his 300b, which he is developing in association with Lynn Olson.  As with his other gear, he believes it will far outperform much more expensive 300b amps on the market.  I wil...

I bought it on Amazon for the oppty to return it if I don't fancy it. I think it can be sourced cheaper from China, but with more hassle, possibly. My tube guru Don Sachs has created a new 300b amp that he claims is significantly better than my Ko...

Uptone Audio LPS-1.2 Failures
I know Alex Crespi at Uptone Audio quite well and have his LPS 1.2 which works just fine.  I have had connectivity problems with my Micro-Rendu device which actually Alex helped me sort out when I was at wit's end, in an extremely patient manner, ... 
Fritz Carrera BE vs. Harbeth 30.1
Excellent review, very informative.  I have heard both Harbeths and Fritz' speakers at several audio shows and was never moved by the sound of the Harberth's and their prices for such a plebian design never made any sense.  Fritz' speakers are eas... 
Let’s share funny-stupid things we’ve done
  This is a fun thread with no disputes emerging as they often do, sharing out our costly mistakes.  Dekay, that is great question you are asking for a friend.  Right after I fire up my soldering gun, which I rarely do because I have no such ski...

My cat jumped on my SOTA turntable and destroyed the Dynavector 20X10 stylus. I got an Ayre QB-9 a week later and sold my TT rig.  I think my cat did me a round about favor...  To Dadork, I wear as a pure badge of honor the fact that I have lost ...
