As my speakers are roughly 4 ohm, I'm using Antek 22V, 300 VA, one per FE for now. The future plan is to experiment with driving more than one amp in parallel to better understand the hum thing.

As you probably can't see in the picture, I am using most of the premium components. As the reported big difference in the True Copper to K71-4 caps is in the bass, I went with the K71-4, since the subwoofer handles the deep bass. I have some K75-10s to try that were recommended by one of the guys on the solid state forum.

Otherwise, I have the Riken for R10, all three Ero caps, the Elna RJH, etc. At the moment, C9 are BG STD. I have sockets for C9 with a plan to try Niobium and BG PK caps. Also, the NP caps from Soonsc if they work out.

Wow, That all sounds excellent. I'll just add the the True Coppers also do a lot for image and clarity, but I haven't heard what you are using so I can't make a comparison.

I have a sub with a big amp also and am considering tying it in just for those giant room shaking pipe organ notes. That is more for the vibrations than the sound. Madisonears is doing some interesting work with a bi-amp system with MyRefs on top.

Are you getting any hum from the setup you have now?

No hum. They are very quiet, but then, I don't have super efficient speakers. I don't remember the sensitivity, but I think they are around 86 dB/watt.

I don't have anything really good to compare it to, but so far this is clearly the best my system has ever sounded.

Been waiting to hear that for a long long time. See Dario, I'm not nuts and it's not just your imagination.

No Bob, simply Jac entered the collective illusion... it seems he took the red pill...

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

Default Mixed Metphor !!!

Dario,

Congratulations. I've never heard anyone mix together the Matrix and Dune. That combination just twists the mind.

Jac

Besides, I like the red pill.

Don't forget that the citation from the Matrix is, indirectly, a citation of Alice in wonderland... just to add complexity

BTW the Matrix borrowed ideas from a lot of novels, including Dune novels...

Here an example.
