Has anyone tried the TJ PX25?  I understand it is warmer than the KR PX25 but is NOS the only way to go?  I am considering the PX25 vs an AVVT Px4 and am a bit concerned about the price of the PX25 vs the risk of getting a good pair.  It's all about the sound, though.
I have re-read this thread and I'm still not certain I understand the sonic differences between the PX4 and the 300B. I am currently using a Royal Princess 300B with a Mullard ECC32 driver.  I have tried the vast majority of possible drivers but have only heard the RP 300B. If I were to switch to a AVVT PX4 (or AVVT PX4 or EML PX4) what differences can I expect to hear?   If I could improve anything, it would be to eliminate a small bump in the low mids / upper bass and...
My SR fuses blew on startup.  In-rush current was blamed.  Apparently every piece of equipment I own suffers from high in-rush current.......................
One caveat with SR fuses is they (in my experience are quick to blow).  I tried the SR20 fuses in a couple of places and each one blew.  I have since replaced them with Audio Horizons fuses.  I tried a SR Red fuse which I loved in my system.  I used a 3.15a fuse in a 2.5a application to be safe.  It lasted ~ 3 months.  That's it for me. 
How do the EML 300b's sound in comparison? 
I prefer SR Reds to the Audio Magic and Audio Horizons Platinum fuses.

Has anyone had to pay duty on a cable shipped to the US?  I found a duty calculator online that, if I used it correctly, assured me there would be no duty on my under $1,000 order.
I am considering an upgrade to my LCD-3 fazor cable.  I was using a Toxic Silver Widow but switched to a WyWires Red as I found I liked the organic feel of copper as well as the increase in dynamics.  I am curious about some of the TOTL cables out there but there seems to be no comparisons available to make an educated opinion.  Each brand has its following but it is difficult to get opinions across brands. Has anyone actually compared any of these cables to others?
