  1. Altmann Attraction DAC.

    This model has every option available. S/PDIF, toslink, rca, switable sample rate and jisco function. To purchase it new would cost over $5k today.

    I also have a smaller format duracell batter and charger that comes with the sale. I will have to ship ground with the battery, but its much better to use this smaller battery, instead of having a HUGE Optima battery in your room. Charles himself said this battery is a fine paring with the DAC.

    I've had this DAC for sometime now and enjoy it alot, but as digitial music goes, the tinkering never seems to end, so this is going to fund other DAC purchases.

    At my full price I will absorb PP and shipping in the CONUS. Happy to ship wherever, just reach out if you have somewhere else you like this to land.

    $800 obo

    Only the brave survive the Big Bass TESTS!

    So the question I have is while the THLP creates big bass, I’m using this for music only listening, so I’m really trying to hear all of the music instead of trying to feel a big amount of bass hit me and shake the whole house. Will the THLP do the former, the latter or both?

    Here's a better solution if you are building risers anyhow. If you want to build something that works and is cheap, built 2 of these Anarchy tapped horns and use them as RISERS under LaScalas. Use two of these amplifiers to drive them and leave the LaScalas alone. Stick the port end into a corner or against a wall behind each LaScala. Look at the RED curve which is what comes out of the mouth. Should cost less than $300 to do for both channels. REAL BASS at work, without added distortion. Plans are in the PDF by Little Mike.

    So, this would be an enclosed riser that sits underneath the La Scala and wouldn't need the doghouse cutout? 


    Also, could it be scaled to work as a riser that fits under the the La Scala, so that it looks flush on all side?

    The below circuit is an example of what you would need to realize the high pass EQ filter electronically. This is only the high pass EQ filter circuit, no power supply is shown. This circuit could be inserted into your preamp's tape loop function (in/out). On some preamps, there is a specific "EQ" loop for external processors, such as this high pass filter. If you need a power supply circuit let me know.

    Okay, so this is sorta like a powered version of a notch filter that I have used with single driver speakers?

    This would plug into the in/out tape RCAs of my preamp and I would power it up with the rest of the system?

    To get the full benefit from the LaScala bass modification, Dennis indicated that the high pass filter EQ was needed (and it is). I suspect most people who do modify their LaScala's do not use the EQ and this is where the "disappointment" may come in. 


    Almost every speaker could benefit from a subwoofer, even some "subwoofers", if that makes any sense...


    I like a full music spectrum, but not everyone wants or needs much below 30Hz. 

    Can you please explain more on what is needed here to utilize the high pass filter EQ you reference? Does that mean I would need an equalizer or DSP?

    You are definitely going to have to do a lot of research, then make a decision. That's the hard part for a first tube amp. Subsequent amps are a little easier each time.

    SO MUCH TRUTH HERE! I ended up with 4 different power amps, chasing sound and have found what I like ( For now) : )  in one SET 45 and one PP45 and am now going to make a plan to sell off at least one amp, but maybe 2. I'm running them on La Scalas too.
