I really didn't want this to get where it got but I guess without me thinking it did. I do appreciate you responding though. You are a wealth of knowledge that I do trust, as with others.
The only thing I didn't understand is that there aren't that many Serious Stereo products out there and how can one justify the expense he is asking for what he manufactures when I do know a bit about the cost of things. whether is be foreign or domestic. As for the real and not real of audio, that I can't answer. I am no where near the league of you guys out there. That is why I rely on yours, and others thoughts.
And! All I can say is that I did hear two pair of his 2A3 amps from different years and although they sounded good, I didn't feel they were any better than what I've owned in the past and heard. For far less $$$$$. And if you and others noticed I never said his products weren't any good. I just questioned the cost.

People time to time think that if they buy comparable thing for 5x price, they will get 5x value (of some kind). This is certainly true with gold and diamonds. When it comes to simple tech like audio electronics, anything above certain price point is anything but someone else PROFIT. Nothing bad, just the free market.
BTW, if you wish to acquire custom product for reasonable price, you can go to diyaudio.com, one can find there many reputable builders from USA and Canada.
Since you are in a SET league, arrange a visit to someone owning 4P1L based SET amp with filament bias. Quite possible this is something that may suit your sonic preferences.
Web site for your 4P1L reference, it's owner living in Europe / UK however.
Obviously this forum is not a market for expensive products. To some, Serious Stereo amp is rip off and to some a bargain of a century . Accept it. I may have opinion that all of you guys are overpaid and do not deserve the status you have. You can't be THAT much better than a Chinese sweat shop engineer.
My big beef is with restaurants. I mean , how much I have to spend on dinner to get something better than average person would have little problem cooking with a help of youtube? $100 does not cut it.
People are multiplying, institutions are going Criminal/Gangster, (what else if you don't PRODUCE anything of consumable value)? and
a good sandwich is going synthetic, and is becoming poisonous.
Of course, the price is climbing as well-- WAIT! That's actually wrong--
the REAL price is declining, but in numbers, it is accelerating.
The money/numbers is Going South as politicians and those who vote for them are soaking the average working guy for the crumbs that are left as the system becomes Socialist and non/producing.... and attracts more and more freebies collectors of the few working men's production crumbs that are still left.
Of course, the MONEY NUMBER on everything is going up, but the actual
PRICE is going down-- way down as the money declines in value faster than the prices can be increased..
This means that producers-- of everything basic are pushing REAL quality
and costs down, but are pushing PERCEIVED quality up-- to make up sales
volume in order to have to cut quality as little as possible..
Food is going to become simple: raise your own in co-operation with
people who will help raise it, and with people who have the land to get it done.
If you're in a city, think of ways to have food growing in or ON--
your house, yard and garden (if any).
Audio? We're at the end of a Golden Age-- pick up what's THE best of this age before it's gone, and count yourself a lucky guy!
What are the Power, Bandwidth and Distortion specifications for your current amplifiers offered for sale?
UN-screw your screwed-up Electrical Engineering mind. LOL.
One can not judge an amp by LOOKING at a spec sheet, or measurements.
It is LISTENING to an amp that matters, it, and reliability, is the only thing that matters.
Get a chance to audition them, and smell de roses.
It can matter if you are a 'real' manufacturer.
That is even more funny. The proof of the pudding, is in the eating, not the Measurements and Federal Documentation.
We all don't ever listen to the Documentation.
As I say, you have a big problem judging Hi Fi, and telling what is good and bad. It is a result of your training, it often leads you astray - consistently. You can't help yourself. Typical E.E.
Let me see...spec sheet says, "single runs of wire used exclusively, none are ever paralleled"
What shall we say about how the amp sounds?
Friend, I would not hurt thee for the world...but thou art standing where I am about to shoot.
