    Forte III and Decware Torri MK IV Amp

    Thanks for the info. I have yet to hear a PL, but am going to the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest in 10 days and will hear them (and many others) there. Unless I'm dissuaded by something else while I'm there, I'll be ordering one when I get back. Been meaning to drive over to his place, but it is 500 miles. I'm sure I'll get there sometime. I might even decide to go pick up what I buy to avoid any delivery disasters-though I know they are well packed.

    Forte III and Decware Torri MK IV Amp

    Kevin Deal at Upscale Audio has a nice little video about the Forte III, which he sells of course on Youtube. He discusses and dismisses the brightness issue. Just worth a listen and of course he is into and sells PrimaLuna as well as many other brands. Very funny video as well.
  3. Very cool. I love listening to them paired with a Hammond B-3 which I heard just a few weeks ago. Also, I almost purchased the amp by itself from a guy who had turned it into a separate unit with volume control. Sounded just great, but didn't meet the ever present standard for WAF-though she agreed it sounded amazing. Just the amp was $400.00 and was sold quickly.

    Prima Luna.....SET

    I'm about to do the same thing and have been asking for a lot of information-and getting it. There is some good recent discussion on the Prima Luna Owners Group on FB. Might be a good place to check out also. Regarding power, I heard a 60 year old Stromberg Carlson integrated tube amp the other day with LaScalas and was blown away. I think it was 18 watts or something.
  5. OK, I have Forte III's currently in use with my receiver for TV and musical uses. I am also about to purchase an Integrated Tube Amplifier. I want to use the Forte's for both. What is the best type of switch to use to accomplish this-or is this a bad idea in terms of lowering the quality of music via the extra switch? Thanks in advance. I don't have to do it this way, I could just have a separate tube based system by swapping out the Forte's which I'm willing to do if there is a good argument(s) in favor of that.

    How 2 maintain Tx residency for college?

    Just sold the lot in the last year. Taxes were low, I don't know for a fact in was in Austin, that's just where she went to school. Worked out great is all I know. Father was a partner in Deloitte, so knew the "ropes".

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

    Interesting discussion, and to the point above, it's always interesting to me that many seem to have such disdain for Treble and Bass controls, yet a fair amount of effort seems to go into making those changes-I always like options. It's pretty clear to me by now that everyone likes a little something different as far as listening happiness is concerned.

    Just be sure to ask the right government agency. The Schools always use and provide the most restrictive definitions, since it is in their best financial interests to do so.

    It might be good to write a letter to the Texas Secretary of State explaining the situation. I did something like that (a long time ago) in Arizona, and was pleasantly surprised by how many options there really were. I would be surprised if the student would lose residency particularly if his absence was for "educational" reasons, and there may be others.

    A friend of mine who is a CPA along with her husband had their daughter established residency by purchasing a cheap undeveloped residential lot in Austin or thereabouts. Daughter was eligible for in-state tuition, graduated and sold the lot. Some variation of that might work for you. She lived in another state prior to arriving in Austin for college.
  11. Glad that's over with. I was losing the grip on my billfold. Whew! That was a close one.

    What I Got Today!

    Saw one at an Offutt Air Base show a few years ago. Amazing piece of technology. Still nothing is as thunderous as a dozen or so B-52's heading your way. The ground feels like an earthquake (or maybe Jubes). But I still... "And I dreamed I saw the bombersRiding shotgun in the skyAnd they were turning into butterfliesAbove our nation"

    What I Got Today!

    I like the idea of the Yamaha installation. One of my systems uses a CA-800 with a class A switch. Sweet sounding little unit.
