  1. i'm glad to see someone has tried it and had good results. I think a lot of those Chinese amps are a good value. The price of that has gone up again. I think i'll wait til fall/winter now as I don't spend much time listening in summer weather.
  2. maybe the pic is of the proto type and not the amp youll be getting. iv seen that before.
  3. https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/KT88-big-power-Single-ended-HiFi-Audio-Class-A-Tube-Amplifier-Excellent-bass/813423_2001161898.html?spm=2114.12010612.0.0.5yvQHj I see its went up a few bucks, but still a good deal.
  4. Thanks for the offer. Just gonna use my sony for now. Yes still have the remote.
  5. 2nd Yamaha player arrived. will not read the discs. reads "no disc" with it loaded with discs. no exchanges this time. getting a refund. ill continue looking for a Marantz sa8004 or 05 or an other brand new Yamaha 600 else where. thanks guys
  6. Valve Arts are a nice sounding tube on the affordable side as well. I used the 6ca7 a while back and they had a long life.
  7. didn't notice it rattle at all. the door would just keep opening and most commands did nothing. didn't see any signs of abuse on the box it was in.
  8. The yamaha c600 arrived jammed up. Gonna send me another. Have to wait another wk or so to audition.
  9. Well, the yamaha c600 showed up yesterday. Haven't spent but maybe 10 minutes with it. Cant get it to operate. Loaded some cd's in it, but can't get them to play. Door keeps popping out . have to have more time to figure out what i'm doing wrong.
  10. if I do, I will try .350 just to see.
  11. Listening now. I rebias kt77 to .40 from the .45 and i think there is a small improvement in sound. Better sound stage to me. Power transformer is now hot again and the output trans is a few degrees warmer. Sounds good to my ears. Listening to neil young freedom. What a great recording

  13. Wasn't sure,but i didn't think it sounded as good at .45 vs .40 and now the transformers don't get hot like it used to. Not sure if the bias settings could cause the issue.
  14. Been moving cd's around in the sony changer and the problem is with the cd's not the player. Could use a cleaning im sure anyway. Its be going since 2004 05? New yamaha will be here thru.
  15. Ok. Now i understand. Thanks for the lincs
