  10. In my mind the question is what can we do to make poorly mastered recordings sound pleasing? It reminds me of those with the dreaded 10 db boost at 10 kHz. Tone controls do allow such recordings to be more listenable. Years back, if I recall correctly, there was a guy on the forum who remastered his music library to make the recordings sound as he wanted them to. Is that any different? Maynard
  11. I don’t consider shaping of frequency response to be a non-audiophile endeavor. There is a reason why the high quality, now vintage, amps and preamps had tone controls. For years I have included an “ear bleed filter” in all my designs to allow the high frequency response to be altered to suit individual taste. Besides, many consider all tube amps to be nothing more than tone controls with gain. Maynard
  12. The less “stuff” in the signal path the better, especially if the device is powered. As long as you can drive the amps to the levels you desire all is well. If a source has variable output, direct connection to the amps would be ideal. Maynard
  13. Indeed!!! As many are aware, I have always been an advocate of using flea power amps with Klipsch speakers. Push pull triodes are considered the ultimate way to go among many audio folks. My personal preference has been to parallel tubes (whether SET or SEP). It is possible to achieve very low distortion levels in single ended operation by proper choice of operating point and circuit design. Maynard

  21. Richard, you have a thyratron. Its uses are described under “typical circuits” section of the data sheet. It really has no use in audio equipment but may have some value to collectors of old WE stuff. Maynard
  22. It is not possible to make such a recommendation. A particular tube will likely sound different in every piece of equipment in which it is used because of differences in operating parameters. Personally, I don’t believe in tube rolling but, if it’s important to you, you need to buy a number of different types and evaluate them yourself in your piece of equipment. Maynard
  23. Beautiful performance! Tabernacle Choir Maynard
  24. Another inspiring rendition by Guy Penrod! Maynard
