    Omega speakers

    It appears that your were clairvoyant regarding the 10 inch Omega's. https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=172233.msg1827986;topicseen#new

    My Next Amp.

    I have not used the EML 300B's. In the early 2000's I used and loved the EML 45 solid plates but there were issues with the vacuum. EML now has a 5-year warranty but you have to register the tubes within 4 weeks of their arrival. Guarantee on Emission Labs Products.

    + 1 on personal preference. The rest of the system matters too. It's all about synergy.

    Craigslist curious

    I put a HSU sub on Craig's list. It sat for about a month with 2 scam replies. Yesterday, I got a bite. The buyer came by and auditioned the sub in my rig. He bought it. Then he asked about the Lacewood Heresy 3's that were in the foyer. He had a woodshop for 35 years and liked the veneer. He...

    Tube brands

    Interesting, I tried the EML 45 mesh in the early 2000's in a Korneff 45 amp and had issues with them. I much preferred the solid plate ELM 45. I've read that the JJ 2A3-40's are 300B's with a 2.5v heater.

    Tube brands

    JJ had QC issues some years ago and that soured some dealers. I had a similar experience with JJ's I bought on the auction site. I'm not a JJ fanboy. I needed a pair of 2A3's and decided on the JJ's because of user comments. Euro Tubes came up on a search and I decided to purchase them there...

    Tube brands

    FWIW, I bought a pair of the JJ 2A3-40 from Euro Tubes in Oregon. They only sell JJ tubes, and they fully test & match them at their shop.

    My Next Amp.

    When I had Wellborne Labs Laurel II 300B amps *I* preferred the TJ perforated plate 300B's to the 1990's era WE 300B's. I drive a RAV4.

    FS: Dennis Had Inspire parallel single ended pentode amplifier and some FYI.

    After leaving Cary Audio Dennis Had is building amps and preamps as a retirement hobby and selling them on epay. Not many of the PSE's were built. I have two other Inspire amps and I'd like to see it to go to someone that will appreciate it. I have this listed on Agon. I'm posting it here...

    Is There Such a Thing as a Better Sounding Streamer?

    Thanks for clearing that up. Shipping is $53, so I'll keep it and use it in a second system with the rPlay. Or offer it to someone here.

    Is There Such a Thing as a Better Sounding Streamer?

    In the drop-down menu, there is a power supply choice for the clean and dirty side. I assumed two power supplies were needed.

    Is There Such a Thing as a Better Sounding Streamer?

    Thanks. I ordered direct from Allo (India) with this configuration. I went with the Shanti power supplies because of threads on DIY Audio. It appears that the Nirvana power supplies are very good though.

    Omega speakers

    Roscoe can better answer that but tubes and Alnico are a great pairing.

    Omega speakers

    I was considering CAMs, but my room is way too big. I did get a NIB Omega Double Deuce sub from their custom shop for less than half price and it's quite musical. I'm using it with Heresy 4's and Dennis Had's Inspire gear. Great match. BTW, I'm FloridaBoy on the big Inspire thread.
