    • Hi, what EL84M are you using? Thanks.  
    • Just a little sarcasm...The Bryston amps are actually very neutral, balanced and smooth. Being dual mono back to the power cord they also image very well. They are a nice match with a wide range of speakers and other electronics. They work great with a tube preamp. I ran an Audio Electronic Supply AE-3 into Bryston years ago when I had my Chorus II and it was a great combination.
    • The Psvane small signal tubes take a good while to settle in. Mullard long plate 12AU7 and 12AX7's are fine tubes but 'good' ones getting hard to find. Mullard 5AR4's are hard to beat. I've not tried any new production 5AR4's.
    • I believe you can use either a 6SN7 or 6SL7. They are not normally interchangable but are in some of his amps. Check with Dennis.    My Inspire amp has a different "infinite impedance regulator power supply circuit" that sounds like I don't need to swap out rectifier tubes. Correct.
    • I used their 300B's and preferred them to the 1990's WE 300B in Welborne Laurels.
    • That is good advice to replace as a pair.
    • I do have some ideas I'm gonna work out depending on some other projects (HiFi related), will try to right it out tonight or one of these days! Very busy, as I just started my medical apprenticeships, and I have to pull long 60-70h weeks, with masterthesis, studying and other time-consuming responsibilities in the weekend.    Enjoying audio will probably be pushed to the far background, let alone contemplating and building new DIY speaker set ups..
    • We pulled of using just only 1 bassbin on each side, with an 18" below. 2 tophorns for better diffraction. It was by far a good setup, as I was having exams at the time, and wasnt able to be there during stagebuilding. We had to place them inside "towers" which meant suboptimal placement. Volumewise the single bassbin was able to keep up without a problem (we have a limit of 95db max, and the space wasnt too big). We might try again this year, but I'm gonna have even less time this time, so I will not be able to be there, which is a shame if I lend out my very expensive gear..
    • Agreed. Have had mine since November and they're great speakers. 
    • I get that. That's been the slightly disappointing part so far. The bass is there, and even tighter and more musical than I expected considering my receiver (but only since I've fiddled with Audissey and activated DynamicEQ, without it, the bass was really too quiet). But it's not "punchy", not as physical as one could imagine it could be with 2*10" woofers and such a large cabinet. I assume a good power amp would make a lot of difference in that area!   But for now, I'm happy as is, so my next purchase won't be an external amp. Actually, I'm hesitating between a new subwoofer (XTZ 10.17 edge ?) or a new central speaker. My RC35 is still relevant when I'm watching movies (impressive!), but for multichannel audio when the voice goes from a RF7 to the RC35, it's really bizarre... I'll probably change both, but I'm not made of money and I have to decide in which order to do it 😉   Cheers!
