  1. Would these push altec 18s? Or 604-k in a 620b cab...
  2. I have the peach with me... it is still available.... Bruce
  3. I go out of town a good bit, working outages at power generating plants... headed to Watts Bar in Tennessee..... i didnt want to take the peach with me being no one has showed an interest in it.... if i thought anyone wanted it i would take it with me, but as of now no... thats the only buzz i know of...lol
  4. Im going to put this peach offer on hold, as ill be away for about 3 to 4 weeks... work related... sorry but i am not willing to take it out on road with me... thanks Bruce
  5. My peach is quiet... i have read some about the hiss... is that a 6922 tube thing or a peach thing? I wouldnt want a hiss either...
  6. I was listening to it last night hooked up to the Dennis Had Inspire amp... it sounded wonderful.... I wished it had all 6922 tubes in it, I would buy myself 3 really nice tubes and would reconsider selling it... I just dont see many tube rolling options with the 6h30 tube... that being said, i know everyone likes that tube.. If it doesn't sell I might have the 6h30 upgrade reversed if that is possible..
  7. I unpacked it and took more pictures...
  8. I do not have that answer Mark1101, i will try and find out for you...
  9. Schu, I got the Triode single ended 6550 with a LP-3a preamplifier .... as far as comparing the two amps, that would be a real shootout... they both sound good, the dynaco was built by someone learning to build amps and i invested my money in him a learning, he is from jacksonville fl and i think he did a wonderful job, it has a black wood panel on it also, custom built... Ill hook it back up tonight and take a listen again after listening to something else... i do know it has more upper range weight than the 6550... the 6550 has more bottom and a more full mid... i think... , i just not sure how i want to hear it.... i feel the 6550 has more bass than i want, but rolling tubes to get it better.... maybe ill hook up my dynaco and compare them tonight, a good listening session... yes, thats it, a listening session... with a smile..... tubes im a playing with NOS tungsol 6550 MELZ (6H9C) / 6SL7 / 1579 Mullard-Blackburn 5AR4/GZ34 Sylvania 6SN7GT CBS/ Hytron 6SN7GT GE 6SN7 GTB Shuguang Treasure Cv181-Z Bruce
  10. being i recently purchased a matching INSPIRE by DENNIS HAD amplifier and preamplifier, I'm going to sell a Juicy Music Peach in perfect working condition... purchased it here on this site about two and a half years ago from a forum member... from what i understand it had been given the latest updates , including the RCA connectors placed in the chassis instead of board, and the 6h30 tube upgrade... i looked inside and it has (1)Sovtek 6h30-EB, (1)Amperex 6DJ8/ECC88, and (1)GAA 45E3 tubes in it .... the price is 925 shipped in the continental usa.... that is a lot less than i payed for it but i did put some use on it, this should be a good deal for someone....the unit itself is really nice and clean looking, the cabinet not the best but still looks ok...
  11. my dad died from alzheimers 15 years ago, now i have a sister in a home with it.... a fews weeks ago me and my older brother went to see my sister, after we left we went out to eat and i noticed my brother asking me the same questions over and over..... just like my sister does... i sat there looking at him thinking he has it also.... it just running through my family like no tomorrow.... but it doesn't bother me that i may get or have it..... I'm happy with the life i lived and thankful for it.... i'll just stay home and play my sound system as long as they let me.... maybe by then i wont know enough for anything to matter to me....
  12. I never felt the need to have a sub... most speakers i have have more than enough bass
