    Ooo - a Meitner DAC - nice, you very rarely see those. Said to be very special.
    Impressive and interesting amp, too.
    LVs are a Marmite thing.
    What source(s) do you use?

    I've only had the Meitner for a couple of weeks and I'm really liking it. If I get a room, I'll be using it at Scalford.

    I'm currently using a Cyrus CDT but I also have a Perreaux CDt and Bel Canto CD3t but they are a bit temperamental. I've got a NAS and am going to get a streamer in the next few weeks.

    Nice, very nice

    If there is a pre-amp in on the amp, try your Ayre into it, you might be surprised by what you hear.

    Lovely looking system Ian, I'll bet it sounds great, you may not be aware but, there is a Series 2 upgrade available on your M608's, I think it's about £200, well worth it IMHO, unless of course you've already had it done, that valve amp looks a beast.

    Enjoy your music

    cheers Al

    I knew there was a S2 upgrade for the M1108 but I didn't know that there was one for the M608; I shall investigate.

    The Triode weighs in a over 40Kg. Sounds lovely though.
