  1. Oh good point about the 5751 in a phono! Never tried the 7035 but I liked all of the rest in the phono stage and was partial to the Telefunken. You won't find any for 15 bucks though.
  2. Good to know! Lava lamps ok? I think my 1967 Cornwalls came with one didn't it??
  3. The newspaper I found in the trunk of my Chrysler Newport said Nixon was going to China... hope he stays well! Reagan?! You mean the actor turned governor?
  4. I'll have to look at my supply of 12at7... I don't remember what I have off hand. This is why it is a good idea to take notes! Mullard, Amperex, Tele's... it's hard to go wrong. I rolled just about everything I had through there. I'll look at reply back when I can. The Reflektor is subtle but had a better image it seemed. I can say mine measured better with identical output on each side... the Sovtek's were off by a bit.
  5. Mullard's are hard to beat in the NBS. I really liked the Brimar military black plates... a little bit more clarity... nice top to bottom! I liked the Reflektor 6H30P-DR... expensive but perfect balance compared to the Sovtek.
  6. On my La Scalas I just used a putty knife to scrape off the bulk of it and installed 1/8” gasket material. Done. No mess
  7. Excellent work, Chris! I decided to finish backing up the rest of my SACD's and have good success using a Sony BDP-BX510 to grab both the stereo and multi channel files from SACD's. I also have a working process to pull the DTS and PCM audio (or sometimes AC3 is all you get) from my concert DVD's which a lot of the time sound better than the CD editions. There is something very satisfying about that process! I'd be glad to help anybody who wants to try... just send me a PM. I'd do them for you for that matter if you needed.
  8. I think the single coat of walnut and the rest clear sounds like a great plan! Nice work! For birch that can appear splotchy I'd consider applying sanding sealer prior.
  9. All favorites! There was also the generic store version of hamburger helper... I use half the meat called for or I'd add a bunch of spaghetti noodles and extra water to make it go farther. In fact, that's what I cooked just a couple of nights ago and it was good for 2 meals for 6 of us. We lived it up with ACTUAL hamburger helper and Oldtimer's hotsauce.
  10. Yeah, those WTF files are hard to deal with! Foobar2000 with the SACD plugin is exactly how I played my DSF files for years. I'm using ROON which isn't as perfect as I'd like but it is way beyond anything else I've used. If you don't have a player that can play DSD, Roon will convert to PCM. Roon will also combine multichannel files to 2 channels if you need. Playing DSD files takes more processing power... If your server (wherever it is getting decoded) isn't up to the task you might actually hear a degradation in sound quality. Just my experience... there are a lot of variables. The DSD vs FLAC versions I have are not an apples to apples comparison.

    Those we lost... 2014

    These kind of lists always leave me wondering, "Who's left?!"
  12. It's been a while since we've seen any "smurf" blue speakers. ...just kidding! Please don't! on the other hand... Through the years, we have seen interesting examples of formica or shag carpet covered speakers... urp!
  13. Looks nice! Instead of screws I just laid a sheet of this on the slant risers: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07GJWL9PT Non slip liner did the trick but it seems the price now is higher than what I paid.
