    Nothing listed in your profile, which would be handy.

    What amp is that?

    its a custom build El-34 power amp, based on the Yaqin MC-10L. i dont understand much about it, but it sounds great. Infomation here. Mine is the power amp version

    excert from site
    The Plan: To take a mass-produced OEM type Chinese made amplifier with decent basic performance and reasonable components such as good transformers with good bandwidth. The Chinese can now do that better than anybody else and they can turn these out at a cost we cannot compete. But the sonic performance is generally less than desirable compared to the very best. But we are going to change that.

    So rather than compete, take advantage of it. But alas, few are able to do just that. But we are! Some of you may have heard of Vacuum State situated in Switzerland and headed by Allen Wright who used to live here in Sydney. For 33 years I have been a collaborator with Allen and also part of a loosely organised international team doing much leading edge research, much of which is then shared.

    Thanks Stuwee, though we could have easily done without the Fostex shot. That's just wrong...

    And I've been searching high and low for the few MA-XG's I have. It really pisses me off that I can't find them. Darn it! :realmad:

    It's not surprising that a lot of hi-fi nuts are also camera nuts. It gives them more things to tweak. :thumbsup:

    Nice Gold Toes socks.

    Just kidding. They do look very, very pleased.

    Those are some beautiful pics. I'm guessing you have a 124 (or is it a Shindo Garrard?) hooked up to this sublime system?

    Thanks, it's a very warm sounding system and the GoldToe socks are used to make sure there isn't a thermal imbalance between the extremities :laugh:.

    Actually, it's a custom TD125ii which I love to death and has been for me through several system changes and upgrades. Here's a couple of photos of it - seems appropriate for this thread:
