    Pioneer Series 20 M-25 Amp

    I have never seen one of these. About the only Pioneer I haven't seen, but it is a 40 year old Class A Solid State amp. Recapping is a minimum to make reliable. These may even get hot enough to wear out the output devices. Not uncommon at all to see this in Class A stuff.

    Which Tubes do you run in VRD's & why ?

    joessporster, any time you are ready Here is my take on my favorites in the VRD's: CBS 7318 (12AU7) - nice all the time and for all music. It just does the job with tone and composure. Valvo Long Plate 12AU7 (ring getter, various D getter with and without foil strip) - the most resolution without any brightness. The different versions have slightly different sound, but all pretty close. This is my preferred tube in the 12AU7 slot currently. Image focus is spooky and huge! This is the Audiophile 12AU7. It does everything better than the Telefunken, and with no brightness at all. Valvo E80CC (12AU7 Sub but be careful. The heater current is much higher, although plenty safe in the VRD's) This tube makes images huge. More forward, but everything is in the room. Very cool sounding tube to roll in occasionally. The 10M Mullard 12AX7 - Big, warm, slamming, focused, tons of drive. This is THE tube to put here, and yes, it is MUCH better than a standard Mullard that looks just like it. I don't know why, but it is. Sylvania Triple Mica Grey Plate 5751 (12AX7 Sub) - My second favorite, deeper soundstage, very quiet, nice focus and detail. A delicate/intimate sounding tube. Black plate version is about the same, just less warmth.

    The boxes alone are worth $25. These should have been gone instantly. If I didn't have my pile of these...... These are forever tubes! One and done.

  5. Someone should grab this one. Built like a tank and one of the best integrateds on the planet.

    Reconfigured Layout...

    Yes, that is a very good DAC for sure. You have a couple options, but they are going to be considerably more money. A Chord DAVE would be a nice upgrade. A Totaldac would also be a nice upgrade. Shoot me a PM if you want to talk about it. Paul

    WTB: Accuphase P-250 or P-20 Amplifier

    I passed on the P-266 in above conversation. He is offering a very nice piece for a very reasonable price though! So..... Have at it gentlemen. It's an Accuphase!! Still looking for the P-250 though. A P-20 would do nicely as well.

    Marantz 2330 B bass issue with Hersey Speakers

    I wouldn't cut your teeth on a 2330B! Not a good plan. It is a combination of issues, I am quite sure. The main in jacks on the back get dirty. The speaker relays get dirty (power cycle brings it back, or crank it up to get it on are the symptoms associated with a dirty relay typically). The controls get dirty.
