    Elekit TU-8200R amplifier - anybody built or heard one?

    I find the phono stage isn't to my liking but the rest of it is fine.

    Elekit TU-8200R amplifier - anybody built or heard one?

    Hey, I'll bet that is my preamp. The actual preamp. He was nice to me and sold me a few of his older well used items he was not using at his shows anymore several years back. Very nice man.

    Vintage JBL 44 Lancer with a Consonance A100II solid state amp

    So far I love them. They have some water damage on the corners but they are really nice. My JBL l55's go deeper but the 44's are fun.

    Vintage JBL 44 Lancer with a Consonance A100II solid state amp

    The main reason I asked was because the speakers are vintage and I really like their sound so I didn't want to risk damaging them with something that might overpower them. I don't think I would "bump" my volume. That sounds like I'm a bit challenged. My reply to StaticV3 was sarcasm due to his...

    Hegel H95 Review (Streaming Amplifier)

    But the A100 was built and sold before Opera was making Hegel stuff. I do believe. Perhaps Hegel liked the Opera design and went with it? I am pretty sure Opera still makes Hegel amps.

    Vintage JBL 44 Lancer with a Consonance A100II solid state amp

    I just got these speakers yesterday. They have been re-foamed by the guy I bought them from, good job too. Today I have been going through different amps to see which I like the best. Single ended and PP tube amps and one solid state amp, the Consonance a100II Super. I also use the Elekit preamp...

    Record breaker: Raphaelite CS30-MKII tube amplifier review and measurements

    Yes, sorry I meant the older speaker in the second picture. It looks so cool. I'm guessing the midrange is very nice.

    Excellent cabinetry work! I'd love to have the big old speaker behind it :)

    I am and I have little room for more speakers, lol. Also, a little rich for me but I'd love to hear them.

    Record breaker: Raphaelite CS30-MKII tube amplifier review and measurements

    Yes, Opera Consonance (from my understanding) has a decent following in Europe but it doesn't in America. I have an old and probably outdated Hegel HD2 DAC on my computer setup made by Opera. That's how I got it, lol. I really want an Opera T99 preamp. They stopped making it a long time ago...

    Record breaker: Raphaelite CS30-MKII tube amplifier review and measurements

    Yes, travel to and in China can be a bit tiring but they have made wonderful upgrades in their rail travel. I am also personal friends with Eric Liu, the owner of Opera Consonance. I have a few of his turntables one 2a3 amp and his M15 speakers. I had several of his amps but I sold them...

    Record breaker: Raphaelite CS30-MKII tube amplifier review and measurements

    Well, it was a small village and, at that time, it was just a couple of buildings. Very rural. I was surprised something looking so nice could come out of such buildings. I don't want to be rude but the buildings weren't anything special. I have no idea what their facilities are like today...

    Record breaker: Raphaelite CS30-MKII tube amplifier review and measurements

    Hi, I'm new here. I just wanted to say that I used to live in China and have owned several Raphaelite amps. Now, I only own two. I actually took a long day trip from Beijing to visit their 'factory' many, many years ago. Anyway, I own a single ended el84 and single ended 6v6 amp made by this...
