    2A3 power triode’s along with 12SL7 and 6AX4 tubes performing in all their glory!

    Some upgrading as of late. Current reference setup with the James Burgess 45/2A3 S.E.T. amplifier, easily interchangeable to Burgess Eiclone 6550 triode monoblocks. A James Burgess tube preamp/phono stage, PeachTree Audio 65SE (serving as DAC), Modified AT1240 TT with AT33EV cartridge and Cardas wiring straight to the Burgess phono stage. Media is also served up via an Otari MTR10-2, Teac 1040Sl, Akai 280D-SS and Akai X-150D Reel to Reel machines, a PC music server with over 25 terabytes of Hi-Rez files, and plenty of great vinyl selections. All playing through a pair of 105db efficient Klipschorn loudspeakers with an 18” Velodyne sub crossed over around 40Hz. Room is 24x20x8.





    Will be treating the room in the coming weeks finally. I also have two more bucket list pieces of gear coming. A pair of GPA Altec 604H III speakers, custom crossovers and Stonehenge cabinets and some 300b Thorsten Loesch “Legacy” circuit inspired monoblocks to drive them.

    Klipsch often were used with a central speaker as well, I recall. Nice to see a familiar sight-I had a pair for 18 years. Always thought it odd that such a big box needed help below 40cs! They DO need to be sealed to the corners ideally.(No 'skirting'!)

    Yeah I had a pair for about 5 years back around 2002. I found these 20 minutes away last month and didnt think twice. I have owned almost every Heritage speaker they offer other than the Jubilee.

    Ks are much rarer over here than in U.S. Maybe in part because our rooms are smaller -except in 'Victorian' houses (1800-1900)
    My 1965 'Scandinavian', split-level house didn't work; no corners! (Doors,etc..)
    But my Ocellias are pretty fine and the Leak 3090s in main room.

    After a long "break in" period my Stonehenge V cabinets with GPA Altec 604H II speakers and custom crossovers are home and sounding amazing.

    Unexpected time off so it's been jazz all day.... set the lights for a blue mood this morning and before I knew it the day was done. Swapped out the 2A3's for some 45's today. Glorious midrange with either but it's fun to hear the 45's and how 1 watt per channel can sing so good!
