    Dipole H frame woofers & 2 different top hats. I suppose the 45's performance would have been better with more sensitive speakers. Love seats not there anymore. As a matter of fact my wife bought new couches a while back

    Well heck. I think the 45's are headed back to the closet. The Aleph J does everything the 45's do and in spades. It makes it all sound very easy where as the tubes struggle at times. Up next to tubes with a bit more oomph such as 300b's it may be a different story. 45's might also be a real...

    5 hours run time. Very very nice sound's coming through here. It's got speed, dynamics and clarity. Is it better than the Aleph J. That's hard to say. It doesn't take a back seat to it though. Today I will bias some real 45's and pull these overgrown EML's out. This amp reminds me of the...

    This is a tough ack to follow. EML 45's, excellent quality Electra Print iron. It's just warming up and I'm glad I drug it off the shelf. More to come.
