Single Ended Triodes (SETs), the ultimate tube lovers dream.

RE: Ping- drlowmu

Don't know what Jeff is using, but I can
comment here....

There are many wires you can use for critical points
in amp wiring, I'll just give you the best... why waste
your time?

Silver-plated copper never works, but Wonderwire does. It's
what is used on Dynamicap leadouts. It's good, but not THE best.

Kimber AGSS (silver multistrand) is always a "go to" when nothing else is around. Their PTFE is excellent-- you can leave it on the wire---.

It's good enough that it won't degrade your efforts-- it is neutral,
sounds really solid and is dynamically efficient.

Siltech has always made the best silver/gold alloy wire-- we used to buy old
interconnects of theirs, and grab the wire inside them. GREAT stuff, of course, but now the Chinese are "copying" Siltech. Is this stuff any good? (found all-over E-Bay). NO!!!!!!!.

Failing that, Cardas bare, single solid silver hookup wire is excellent-- but I never use this singly-- it gets twisted together in 2's and 3's to get lots of,dynamics, and a wide bandwidth.

Silver Sonics has some similar solid silver wire that is PTFE jacketed.
I strip this off (DO NOT scratch or nick the silver!!!! If you do that,
it's just like scratching a L.P. record-- you won't like it....). in order to get the better performance of bare wire.

Just a few ideas-- have fun!
