  1. Yes it does. I was curious if the 300B tubes in the Transcendent pre would add anything positive to the PL integrated's power supply. May not be worth the effort.....
  2. So we need more chatter you say? Not earth shaking but I did climb my 24' ladder up to to three areas of the 1.5 story house to blow leaves and pine straw off. Gutter guard does not help with straw! Walking up and down valleys is getting a bit scary for this soon to be 73 year old but my errand boy was busy. On a happier note I ordered a matched pair of Amperex 12AU7s (orange world logo-Holland) from Brent Jesse this morning. Will try them in the two center positions of the PrimaLuna integrated. A bit of a skeptic about tube rolling I must say. Lastly you may remember I bought the Transcendent Sound Masterpiece but it resides at my other house. Was wondering if I brought it here could I run the PL integrated through the Masterpiece pre amp? If so tell me how please.
  3. Great post! Please expand your thoughts further!
  4. Suggested viewing on Youtube: Ken Fritz.....The Best Stereo System in The World. Watched it last night.
  5. Happy birthday a day late Lauren! Just think in two more years dad will buy you a pony😁
  6. I'm just the opposite. Three turntables, three R2Rs, many hundred LPs and CDs and yes streaming too. The Sugar Cube takes care of the pops and tics with no loss of musical content. Love the involvement with my media and watching those big reels spin.
  7. Eric you do know that BigStewMan is not a real person right? Many years ago several of us developed his persona and opened a forum account for him based on the life and career of a federal inmate named Sylvester Penrod. Penrod was doing time for maliciously smashing guitars and petty theft! A quirky guy who would go through the chow line and pocket those little packs of ketchup when no one was looking. I think he is now on the lam traveling up and down the west coast doing odd jobs and blogging on several forums. So if you need help with your construction projects you will have better luck getting Rich and Carl to stop by. Hope this helps😁
  8. I met Roger at the 2018 Pilgrimage. Asked him about his screen name. He seemed surprised I didn't know what a twistedcrankcammer was😐 Nice guy gone too soon.
  9. North Carolina huh? Right down the road.....looks tasty call me when it's ready!

    What I Got Today!

    Sorry but I'm on a tablet (Microsoft Surface) with windows 10. Files and pics in Explorer. Haven't had a cell phone since I retired 9 years ago so I'm no help there.

    100HZ seems a bit high but what do I know (my first sub)? I have the SVS PC-2000 Pro crossed at 50HZ.
  14. I wish I had the skills but no I bought it from a seller on usaudiomart.
  15. 16 years ago today I joined this forum! Time flies when you're having fun😐 Thanks but no cards or letters......bourbon's okay though!
  16. I think the 4367 JBL has mid range to die for. Made me start googling them to see if any used ones are for sale. A gent in NJ has two pair and one pair (with 5 hours use) is for sale for $9999. Retail price is now $16,500 according to his add. Pony express from NJ to NC coast?
  17. Yes well I've gone and done it now. Entered the realm of high end cables. Since I bought the Transcendent Sound "Masterpiece" I decided to replace the generic computer power cords. Went to Amazon and didn't even flinch ordering two WAudio 10 awg cords for $45.99 each😑
