Looking for a new Amp or Preamp? If you're after tubes, post over here.

RE: Awesome

Well I just got back from RHB Sound Dezign where I dropped the Peach 2
off. I got to meet both Bob and Gary, both are really personable, down to earth guys. I spoke with Bob at length about the Peach and the issues
I'd like to clean up in addition to the repair. We spoke about log
tapers on volume controls, caps, tubes and a lot of things audio.

I got to listen to his Backert Labs Rhumba 1.2 and I must say for the
entry level preamp it is pretty impressive. Dynamic, resolving and fast
while giving you the depth and soul (for lack of a better term) that a
good tube pre provides versus a SS pre IMHO.

As I stated earlier there are some issues with the Peach that I'd like
addressed. My plan is to fix it (DUH) and within reason clean up
the issues. I think at that point I would like to an A/B using my
system to see which I prefer. I really love the Peach, BUT, this is the
2nd time it has gone "tits up" in 9 years, so to be "married to it" so
to speak would be foolish. I also like that at $3300.00, the Rhumba 1.2
is completely upgradeable to the $5500.00 top of the line Rhumba in
steps or all at once. Bob told me that even the auto tube bias circuit
from the Rhythm (his 7500.00 preamp) can be incorporated if desired.

I'll see what Bob has to say and go from there. I feel that the Peach
is in excellent hands - thanks for the recommendations and I'll keep
you guys in the loop as this evolves.
