    Is Western Electric selling a Push-Pull amplifier (91E) as a Singlended ?

    Maybe you should get an Electrical Engineering degree so you could reason this out for yourself as opposed to trusting Tubecad over WE. But I also wouldn't trust any tube amp to be high fidelity in this day and age.

    The kit we bought, our current setups

    I'm not selling 'em. They're keepers. I'm just hoping the Buchardts are a better match to my listening room. I found the T1s to have an open non fatiguing sound with a good frequency response. But the T1s are, well, not pretty.

    Integrated Amp Upgrade - Separates or Integrated?

    Hold on a minute! The miniDSP SHD Series is a Roon end point. Go with that $1300, about, and a BuckEye amp of your preference.

    Integrated Amp Upgrade - Separates or Integrated?

    Have you considered a RPi running Volumio for streaming? Then maybe you could move up to a miniDSP Flex? You're currently set up for 2.1.

    Coffee - do you and how do you consume it?

    Any drinkers of Turkish coffee here? I have the bare minimum to prepare. I've had it two or three times now and like it! Any tips on preparation? Any preferred brand of coffee? Is a Turkish coffee maker worth the money?

    Farewell my friends. Health is deteriorating - I'm fading out. (Updated - I've faded, but I am not down and out yet!)

    Hang in there and keep moving about! Great to hear you'll be with us longer.

    All I Need Is A Good Clean 80 wpc! Are We There Yet?

    Apos emailed me that they are now offering the S.M.S.L A300 for sale. Here's a link to the company product page. At under $200 this is very competitive for 85 wpc at 1% THD. But, is this the good clean 80 wpc I'm talking about? Or, are one or two generations away from it. Your opinions, please.

    My Denon X4700H died today...

    How are your speakers connected? Bared wire? Spade connectors, banana plugs? Could there be short in any of the connections?
