    Misogyny would make no sense. Well, even less sense. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Miscegeny

    The OTL amp (I had not heard one before) sounded wonderful, I thought it to be better than what I had, not earth-shatteringly better, but a subtle improvement. This was until Alan left, I put my power amp back in the system - and it sounded worse. Not just 'Not quite as good, I'm an audiophile so I can spot these little differences' worse, but 'So much worse that it sounds broken'.

    It took me a week to re-acclimatise. But you can never truly go back. I had realised amplification really matters. Okay so that is not as bad as discovering interconnects or speaker cables really matter. But still a bit of a shocker for me.

    Anyway: The upshot being I love this Krell amp and if it were not an abomination of God's Laws I would marry it and have its little heat-sinked babies.

    Just had to share that. As you were.

    I love Hendrix for so many reasons. He was so much more than just a blues guitarist - he played damn well any kind of guitar he wanted. In fact I'm not sure if he even played the guitar - he played music. - Stevie Ray Vaughan

    Of course, the one I really want is the SL-P50 (VU meters!!), but I don't know of anyone, anywhere who's ever seen one, let alone owned one - http://www.thevintageknob.org/technics-SL-P50.html
    There you go, Adam. About £3,500 with free shipping:

    And you haven't snapped one up?

    Bit disappointed with the look of the vu meters. Perhaps it's the dim photo to blame.

    How would say your 1200 sounds compared to other players you've had?
