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

RE: whats Better dynamically better quality but smaller or large awg??

Thanks for sharing.

I have been told by Mr. Dennis Fraker, to cut down the mass / size of my Mil Spec wire dramatically, so as to "retain the highs."

About a week ago, I bought some 1600 feet of the Mil Spec wire in smaller gauges than the 12 and 14 I have used, ( sometimes even doubled up ). I bought a lot of 16 AWG and some 18 AWG, with a goal of retaining the highs, using single runs always, of smaller size wire.

I can send you some to play with, be my pleasure, plus we will both learn new things. That I was " over-wired", was told to me very plainly by DF last month.

He works hard to retain the highs in his SET amp, like no one else I know in audio, - harpsichords, etc, and he gets it. I never did, but will make changes he suggested to me - next month with the 2A3 JJ monoblocks' build.
