  1. The way I read it his home theater and two channel are separate, as it should be. As for two similar speakers, I’d bet that the Razz will sound significantly better than the forte. Edit: I just saw his pic, maybe HT and stereo are NOT separate….
  2. @Dave1291 is right. You won't be competing against chi-fi crap. Those buyers aren't your target demographic. People who want good quality at an honest price are the ones who will seek you out. And you have the convenience of building for whomever you choose.
  3. Don't blink. We are heading down a slippery slope......
  4. Doesn't get much more affordable than that.
  5. There is no best, there's only what one prefers. It's not all about the tube, but how it's implemented into the design. And perhaps the most important part of any amp, the power supply. I don't hesitate to recommend Aric Kimball of Aric Audio when it comes to tube amps. Affordable is relative, but his products offer very high value for the money spent. Aric Audio
  6. Let me sweeten the pot. Retail price on these beauties is 4300.00 If you pick up in Lynchburg Va, your price is 1800.00. If you pay the asking price I will ship on my nickel in two factory crates.
  7. These mono amplifiers are hand made in Greece. They are in excellent condition, would be hard to tell them from new. They are very powerful at 150 watts/channel so should drive most speakers. You will not be disappointed in the performance or the condition. Tung Sol KT120 x 8 JJ 12AT7 x 4 Asking 2000.00 OBO
  8. Yeah I’d say .75 watt is a little low. Try a good 300B amp. That’ll git er done.
  9. I don’t know if this is your issue or not, but you really should hard wire your network for best performance.
  10. Currently I am borrowing a friend's CJ MV60 which is adequate for most music. But it will run out of steam if pushed on harder, more complex stuff. Next weekend I will picking up a McCormack DNA 0.5 which has been modified by SMc with the GT-20 package and gravity base. So yes, I'm going to the dark side. But I am familiar with Steve's amps and all I've owned (4) in the past sounded very good.
