Zaph : I feel somewhat flummoxed that there is no further response regarding the auditioning of the ME25 from you re: your offer, since I accepted it. Have you had a change of mind?

No. The offer remains. I need to locate a suitable packing box, measure, weigh and calculate postage. I will do so when I have the time.

Im looking at the basic shuangang cryogenic for value for money for the valve preamp...

...in addition, an old schoolchum who is now an electronics engineer I briefly spoke to, suggested that I use a SS buffer with the valve preamp to bring down the impedence without compromising the upper end, as using transformers would typically do...., a helpful well-meening chap; I need to discuss this with him in a bit more detail...

Like exactly what is the point?

If you are happy with sound of silicon why bother with a valve?

Either get a decent transformer (eg. Sowter or Lundhal etc) or spend similar money building a quiet power supply for your op-amps.

Or go the Nelson Pass route and use a pair of matched transistors.

(either of the silcon options will be better with battery power supply as long as you don't mind recharging batteries).

That's too easy.

There needs to be a challenge, for an audiophile.
