    Might Be Getting a Visitor

    PM the Italian stuff is impressive. They seem to be unable to just build something without adding that little Italian touch somewhere. Been giving this Unison Research hybrid tube Integrated a spin. Has a bunch of nice Parts Connexion upgrades too.

    I Do Hate Cartridge Alignment!

    I probably don't know how to determine if my setup is correct, so yes, an odd process that also seems antiquated after all this time. Not sure there has ever been a product and industry that has allowed this level of potential user error and uncertainty to proliferate. PM you have identified...

    A new horn model
