    I like my Single Malt straight up...but Macallan always require a chip or 2. I love Glenlevit and my all time favorite.....The Balvenie Caribbran Cask 14

    For the past 20 years the first thing I've always played on any new gear has always been something by Pink Floyd. For better or worse. Because some gear does need to burn in before it sounds its best. So sometimes that means I end up listening to Pink Floyd at less than ideal playback performance and sound quality. But that's generally a risk I'm willing to take. Because I've just listened to Pink Floyd on new gear and life is good.

    So for me the answer to that question is always going to be Pink Floyd. Always.

    I could let the new gear learn to fly with a set like that.

    Maybe there should be a "post photos of your records and intoxicants" thread. These are great.

    Thanks for the reply. Really helps. Some photos of the EL84...it's really difficult to resist when all these options are still available...these photos were taken 2 year ago, last time I went to the store Mullards and Brimar were gone...better to stock some of this.

    I trimmed my options to the AN OTO signature and the TriodLab EL84TT MKII ...completely different looks but both feel special in its own way. I don't think I will have a problem with the OTO volume control using LS3/5a...

    cheers

    In addition to the Otos I used to have, I still own two EL84 amplifiers, a Leben CS300SX and a Shindo Montile. The MQ-88uC with current production KT88 tubes sounds better then either of these amps running NOS Mullard EL84s. I preferred it to the Oto Signature as well. So I would focus on which amp is better vs. which NOS power tube is available.

    If you want to add an EL84 amp just for fun as a second amp, I'd look at the Kingko which is relatively inexpensive and made right there in Hong Kong.

    Love the Philips 212. That was my very first turntable. Brings back memories...

    That's a trip down memory lane. I had both the Yamaha and the Philips turntable. Not at the same time, but I owned and enjoyed them both. Very nice!

    I had the Sony D5.
    Sold it to friend who still has it.
    Wish I'd kept it for nostalgia sake

    when my basement was first finished, i was carrying a rack, gear and speakers down there the second the last carpet was tacked in. My sister in law was over at the time and she thought it was the funniest thing she'd ever seen. My wife, however, was unfazed.

    Lovin' the setup. Mind sharing which brand of stands you're using with your Harbeth?

  23. Nice, very nice. But tell me about that vacuum cleaner.
     
  24. I graduated to giving my plants to friends, so when they wilted I could blame it on them.
