What I Got Today!

Recommended Posts

Finished my Bob Latino VTA ST70 tube amp. :):):)  Had made a wiring error :( but Bob was AWESOME and pointed out my "stupidity." To anyone interested in building one of Bob's kits I would say "GO." His support is just OUTSTANDING!

 

But ... it sounds like crap. OK; JUST KIDDING; sounds like crap since it is hooked up to a cheap set of Bose bookshelf speakers and an even cheaper Pioneer AM/FM tuner with a 6 inch wire as an antenna :)  But it takes at least 100 hours to "burn in" the tubes ... can't wait to put it on my Cornwall's or Forte's :)

Well, our bedroom TV was on it's last leg. I've had that thing for 20+ years. It served us well.

Now this sucker is really something. We have HD TV's in the house....and they're nice....but they're eight years old already and don't have the resolution this one is capable of.

Honestly, all I really care about is audio.....the visual doesn't really excite me anywhere near as much. However, this picture is really impressive. It's freaking me out how realistic the people, etc. are on the screen.

I can see how you HT guys could get into this. Especially with a killer surround system. Kinda wish I still had my HT stuff.

Well no....not really....but this is cool.7b1d535b7f2fa6c51746bf61f85b3074.jpg

Tube sets to replace the factory glass. My newly acquired MC2000 has about 2-3 hours on it. I bought tubes so I could stash back the ones with Mc brand.

Covers: Hope the shipping folds relax or they may have to go in the sauna for a steaming.

what I got yesterday, well kind of.  I did get it yesterday but it certainly was EARNED rather than bought, found or anything like that.  and yes, I know it's a little entry level deal.  but it is completion of my 1st step to a better 2018.  :D
