How do they sound? For the room requirements, power provided...
absolutely fantastic. Clean, wide imaging, and shocking at times. Doesn't sound like a Vifa P13. Bass is tight, not deep (of course) and detailed. Treble is honey suckle. Midrange is V-E-R-Y open. But poorly recorded music just sucks, and sounds lifeless. George Short's capacitors are very, very nice too. I use them in parafeed amps. The Crescendos are the best combo of a fast film foil sound with the smoother oil cap presentation. Too bad he only makes it up to 10 microfarads. You realize that the amps I'm using cost only about $400 a pair to build, and if they sound this good with such inexpensive iron, I'm wondering how good they'll be with some Magnequest, Lundahl, Electra-Print, etc...

Anand.
P.S. the floor standing picture on the website are my Okara's filled with sand/leadshot.
