Indeed, - you probably got more extended exposure to the SuperPensil12s on Bernie's very tasty 2A3 than I last weekend, but on a brief "drive-by" I found them much more palatable than the Eminence.

Are these enclosures still at Dave's? I wouldn't mind some more exposure to them with either my EL34 SE or 2A3 monoblocks.

I'll be powering these beasts with a SE 2A3 amp I'm building. Details here

Morrison Micro build begins - AudioKarma.org Home Audio Stereo Discussion Forums


very ambitious amp project - please keep us updated here


edit: actually, before the edit post time limit expired, I decided to quickly scan the whole thread on the amp project

freaking tasty work - for me the 2A3 has long been the sweet spot in the classic DHT family (45 is even more transparent, but simply not enough power - now use it as driver for class A J-fet output stage, and it's whole 'nother ball game, but I digress) - this could be a marriage made in heaven with the 12P

I got to listen to a LOT of Jimmy Buffet.

a little Jimmy goes a long way (I'm sure Cal feels the same way about Loreena, Patricia, or Diana) , and is nothing that some fresh air and quiet gardening can't cure

Others have already commended you on the work, but no harm in saying again - it's looking real nice and look forward to seeing the finished product.

Speaking of amps I have started to put together the parts for a EL34 SE based on the Tubelab SE board - ChrisB, pls do share some impressions after playing with Jeff's Super Pensils and your choice of amps - if not on this thread, on the other thread about MA drivers and user amps.

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

Yes, I'm hoping the 2A3/12P combination will be something special.

^should be. I say that having met J.C. Morrison along with the rest of the "New York triode mafia" and hearing one of his other amp designs. Also because so far with a little over 200hours i'm liking my 12P's driven by half the "micro 2A3's" output with the 45 tube.
When i get mine in a box i'll try both 2A3 and 45 tube to see which i prefer with them.

Btw, let me know how the EDCOR XPWR134-120 mains work out for you? looks like a bargain at $85 compared to the similarly spec'd 300 series Hammond 374X at $110 and $142 Hammond 374BX.
