    I am a 3rd generation agriculture industry Californian living in Tulare County. I'm also a published photographer who first picked up a camera in the late 80's and never looked back. I have been a multirotor builder and operator since 2003 and have my own line of drones flying many countries all around the world. That's when they both seamlessly came together bringing a whole new way of capturing video and still images. I use a variety of new and old styles and gear to capture everyday scenes throughout my travels and everyday life. I have always been interested in audio and have been collecting media and gear for years in the constant pursuit of amazing music and the components to reproduce it.

    Currently: Plinius 8200 with Galbo Designs "Ultimate Mod" and 2019 Auricap XO revision (currently serving as preamp), PeachTree Audio 65SE (serving as DAC), Modified AT1240 TT with AT33EV cartridge and Cardas wiring straight to the Plinius phono stage, Otari MTR10-2 Reel to Reel, a PC music server with over 25 terabytes of Hi-Rez files, and a pair of Zu Audio Omen MKII loudspeakers. Room is 24x20x8. All current tube amp and tube preamp upgrades are finished and switching amps in and out are a breeze. Currently I can choose from a 25wpc 6550 triode, 4wpc EL84 pentode, and a 15wpc EL34 triode for tube amplifiers as well as the Plinius SS amplification.

  1. Right around 30 hours on this combo. New both total 335.00 not including shipping or taxes. I'm asking 200.00 NET TO ME and I'll priority ship this combo in the USA for free! https://www.needledoctor.com/Denon-DL103 https://www.needledoctor.com/Ortofon-SH-4-Headshell-Black
  2. I'm starting a search for a nice set of Cornwalls and I live 30 minutes south of Fresno California. Maybe someone here can help. Thank you Charlie
  3. Price is net to me. Emotiva USP-1 line stage preamplifier with amazing MM/MC phono stages. This was surprisingly one of the better preamps I’ve used under 1,000.00 dollars with so many features. I have the original very nice solid steel remote also and I might have the original box. Everything is spotless. It was used in a low hour second system very briefly. 300.00 shipped in the lower 48
  4. These? https://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649551639-klipsch-heresy-ii-but-with-bass-the-tangent-400-pair/
  5. James Burgess built these monoblock amps using a pair of circuit boards from "diytube" (Shannon Parks). These are based on the Eico HF89 and HF87 with 12AX7 for voltage gain and 12SN7 as phase splitter. Output tubes are Russian "Tungsol" 6550s. KT88s can be directly substituted or EL34s can be used if bias is adjusted for same. He built the wood bases and custom cut/punched the heavy aluminum plates. The plates then were powder coated with a "copper vein" look. The power transformers are "Angela Universal" and the output transformers are custom "clones" of the HF89 items. Both power and output transformer covers have been powder coated "gloss black". James used hexfred rectifiers and Nichicon "for audio" power supply capacitors and added a choke. These have integral hospital grade power cords installed. Currently these amps are connected in triode mode providing around 30 watts per channel and they sound amazing. Very detailed! A full set of all tubes will be included. Local pickup would be great as these are VERY heavy but shipping could be arranged. I have been shipping audio gear and turntables for 15 years and never had a problem but it will not be cheap. 1,500.00 Price is NET TO ME. I am 19 years Paypal verified. I live 30 minutes south of Fresno California and I am willing to drive an hour north or south to help with potential pickup it it helps, or serious buyers can listen to them in my system. I might consider a possible trade for really nice Cornwall's.
  6. Still looking! I came as close as finding one over at Audio Circle and paying for it then the guy backed out saying his wife said no. So go figure after 10 years Im still searching.

    Really nice. I'd take these in a heartbeat but sadly I'm on the wrong side of the country.
  8. Around 2006 or so I used to speak with my dear friend Eddie Vaughn (of then Vaughn Audio) almost nightly and I always wanted one of his amazing "Carina" EL84 SET amps. We lost touch over the years and I am still wanting one of these amps. If you have one or know of someone who does please let me know. Thank you Charlie
  9. Happens all the time. What's ironic is Zep has the nerve to sue their record company for royalties on songs they should be paying royalties as well.
  10. 2003 Chevy Tahoe. 13,000 miles. 2" front 4" drop. 20" Kruz rims w/ Parelli Scorpian tires. 6 mids , 6 tweeters, 2 mids and 2 tweeters in the upright posts custom leather wrapped all Jl Audio. 2 12" Treo SSX Subs. 2,000 watts. Kenwood 7100 dvd navigation controlling an Ipod 80 gig w/ 15,000 songs. Bluetooth with a wireless cingular 8525 pocket pc.
  11. I had the VP-20 mono's and they were well worth the price but that was a few years back and I got them for 400 bucks new. Now they want almost 800. I guess when I got them they were not well known. I would consider other amps now at 800. Charlie
