    It also says they are gold plated, but you can see they are silver.

    Life is too short to worry about the opinion of others.

    Oli, if I were to oblige your offer, the day would end up in a Power Amp Bake Off, 'Cos' my mono's will be on board to be hooked up to your pre amp.
    I'm keen to here a device without such a large amount of copper in the signal path.
    Off Topic,
    One Slagle owner investigating a previous Slagle owners discoveries.
    I've been in discussion about the Slagle, and as a result, had a alternative description of the Slagle, and that is, 'it is not designed to work as a conventional pre amp, but more of a attenuator, that will filter out frequencies, this filtering can be perceived as a improved presentation'.
    Just maybe that is why there are questions about the bass.
    The individual who described this function to me claimed a set of measurements could be taken from the Slagle to identify the filtered out frequencies, and a simple switchable device could be put together which will have a similar effect.
    My mono's are incredibly revealing,the engineer informed me they had shown the noise from the laptop battery, when hooked up to a oscilloscope.

    Hi John,

    That's fine by me!!! Id love to hear your amplifiers and I'm sure you'd enjoy the Krell too.

    The Slagle was a really enjoyable Preamp but there is no doubt in my mind that the DCB1 is more transparent.

    Drop me a PM if you fancy a day up here and we'll sort something out.
