    Ha! - that looks perfect already - you should see my cable spaghetti!!

    Lovely looking system, I do like AN K speakers.

    Valencia? - a really lovely city - I lived in Spain for 2 years, about 50Km south of Valencia, on the outskirts of a small village called Barxeta, not far from Xativa. A beautiful part of the world.

    I'm lovin that amplifier. One of my alltime favourites. I adore the EL34 valve and single ended is just sublime. I also love Audio Note speakers which are a match made in heaven.

    Thank you !
    Jerry, I know the place you mention: Barxeta. Being a railway modeller and enthusiast, this is a nice area where a narrow gauge british-built railway once existed, with a winding track accross the mountains. Nice place, yes!

    Updated. The NAD tuner went in favour of the Cyrus FM7.5 (acquired at a very nice price). Gained neutrality.
    The Meier StageDAC is for sale replaced by the Wadia 15. The Caiman+ is on temporary loan to a friend.
    Audio Note K's on Target mass-loaded stands.
    Two of my venerable LP sleeves hung behind.



    Cheers!

    I do love your little wooden cabinet Antonio. I look at my black steel monolith and yearn for something similar with a bit of character.

    Great looking system - the previous arrangement was too. Such a nice, relaxing looking room.

    Default Darling amplification 1626 + 717A

    Hello all,
    don't want to look like a curator, but I've been changing amps recently just to check performance with the Magnepans basically.
    Do any of you have some experience to share with this amp topology ? I'm completely ignorant with this...
    I recently acquired a valve stage equipped with 2x pentodes 717A (Western Electric) and 2x triodes 1626 (RCA) and their corresponding SE transformers (from Ask Jan First), based in a circuit by Gerd Reinhöfer. 0,75wpc !!



    My speakers are the Audio Note and the Magnepan SMGa, both quite different, both 90dB efficient..., so I dared connect the stage (remember: 3/4 of a watt!) to the Magnepans (I said, "ok, if something has to be damaged, I prefer it to be the Maggies"), using the Wadia 15 as a preamp (digital vol).
    The huge surprise was that the rig sounds, and marvelously, I need to add...!!

    Sound is BIG, hardly second harmonic distortion traces and not consistently. Clear detailed, SE three-dimensional.., a very confidential sound; real piano tones, nice vocals, sinks into blurr with big orchestral sound..., betters the Audion EL34 in many camps...
    ...Cosa: Magnepans (smaller) CAN sing with hardly 1 watt at 300€ !!!! Astounding.
    Just for your reference: manufacturer: http://www.awiller.de/main/index.php...d=54&Itemid=47
