I drank the Electric Tube Amp Kool-Aid!

Yup, I drank the electric tube amp kool-aid -- a mind expanding experience!!

Just received my first tube preamp and power amp. Set up the equipment and the first vinyl album played was my favorite - The dark side of the moon. WOW

I guess I really did not know what to expect, having lived on SS for my entire life. I really liked my Marantz, until the day the music died. With the passing of the Marantz, a decision was forced on me - replace w SS, repair or replace with tubes. Took a gamble on the tube option, man what a rush.

The sound quality really is a tremendous improvement, the expanded sound stage, clarity, detail, richness is hard to describe, but it has me blown away!

The tube power amp sounded wonderful when first installed with my cheap phono pre amp; then the next day the tube preamp arrived and was set up. The full tube sound has really given me an appreciation of " liquid sound" (can't think of a better adjective)!

The power is also impressive; the amp is only 6watts. - but the volume knob at only 30% was rocking!!

I'm hooked -- now I'm looking forward to reviewing my old vinyl collection, lots of classical and jazz records need to be explored.

After we get settled in with the tubes, I'll post an update at some point.

a happy Merry Prankster ;-)
