I can imagine a world of difference between the Decware and LK100 - indeed to borrow from a decades old ad campaign by the Scottish maker - chalk and cheese, mate!

Do you still have the Virtue? If so, maybe the next time you're down with way you could pack it along?

Yes, very much so, using a powered sub for info under 80hz which is great as one can adjust both the frequency response and volume desired with each recording!

and I am using just 1.8 watts of single ended class A tube power to achieve quite lovely listening levels.

Thanks for the tip !
I did have occasion to hear a FirsrWatt clone with some chr70's, it wasn't entirely successful, as it didn't like my (then) pre !

Hi Chris, sadly no, I foolishly sent it to a new home in Seattle (sigh )
It was a lovely , fine sounding thing, lots of power, but only 1 set of inputs

With newly build Pensil 10Ps

Best- Pass F5, nothing else close
Good- Homebrew EL84 utilizing Triode Electronics Dynaco clone transformers and Sheldon's PCB (diyTube), also $25 generic NXP class d amp board off of eBay.

Of course, the Class D is the runaway best value. But, I love my F5.

22 litres is larger than i'd use... sweet spot is a bit under 20 litres -- i'm going to use 17 litres in the larger of the 2 Mar-Ken10p.
