    Thinking of building a tube amp

    I was looking at the ST120. I gather this is an amp based on the Dynaco amps. I will pair the amp with my JBL 4311 speakers. I will need a pre amp, looking at the Eico ST84, or perhaps a Dynaco PAS preamp. Does it matter? Should I just go with a modern preamp? Don’t want to...

    Ipad direct to stereo=not great

    For about a year I have been listening to digital music from my iPad to my Pioneer SX-950 using a headphone to RCA cable. Sound was OK, some albums sounded better than others. Most of the music was ripped from CDs at 256bit rate. In another thread I noted that I picked up a reel to reel, the...

    Picked up a new toy

    I have wanted a reel to reel deck for a long time, although for the life of me the only reason I can think of is because they are cool. I can do everything a reel to reel does from my iPad, but the ipad is not cool. I grabbed a Pioneer RT-909 off of the list, had to drive 200 miles, but it was...

    Pioneer PL530 or PL570

    I have a hankering for another turntable, I like the looks of the PL530/PL570. The PL530 is selling for around $300, the PL570 for around $600. Is the PL570 that much better, should I be looking at other tables and forget the Pioneers? I would like an automatic table, I have two teenagers...

    Another WOPL 700B buld

    You may know this amp from another thread titled 700B Ebay rescue. I ordered a chassis, control board, wire kit, outputs, and back-planes from Joe. I also have a DC protect from Watts Abundant. In two nights I assembled the control board and will probably finish the two back-planes by the end...

    PL400 question

    I was listening to my PL400 at medium to high volume and the Watts Abundant DC protection kicked in. Brought the unit to the bench and put it on the DBT, sure enough the 75W bulb did not dim, problem with the right channel. Removed all of the output transistors and found one shorted and one...
