sr-001smallest, lightest and fastest diaphram of all electrostatics
I think the added transformers are a pretty simple thing to do.   eric, you now have to buy the burson, the various audio-gd discrete opamps, and a few of the others and start opamp rolling with your tube rolling.   you could keep this thread going on forever.
I am sure that wink can build a rkv if he wants to. Complete with tesla coil on top. Someone needs to bring a GSX2 to the meet so eric can hear it.
 Don't know how you calculate, but each he6 needs 4 to 5 watts. So say a minimum of 64 watts of power. That's not going to happen on luminare
 An amplifier like this designed for speakers would have absolutely no trouble driving 2 x k1000 @ 120 ohms each, and 1 x he6 @ 50 ohms all at thesame time. In fact the combined impedance of about 27 ohms is still high compared to the 8 or 4 ohm load a speaker would have.
I am absolutely convinced that I can build a KGST and a SSDynalo balanced into one box, not much bigger than a luminare.   No compromise. Best of both. At the same time.   For about $1500 including chassis.   Could do the same thing for a T2 and a SSdynahi, but the box is going to be a whole lot bigger.   Find a singlepower concerto. Does electrostatic and dynamic.
 I am sure this is true
nonsense?   Corvette C7, 4 rotors, 4 sets of pads, plus labor  $1400   Audi R8, 4 rotors, 4 sets of pads, plus labor  $3700   Carerra 4S, 4 rotors, 4 sets of pads plus labor $5600   Bugatti  oil change $21000
The Germans ARE known for producing cars that once the warranty has expired are brutally expensive to maintain especially the high end Porsche and Mercedes. I have owned 2 Mercedes, 2 BMW and 2 VW. Never again on any of them.   My car gets about 23mpg during the summer, and 21mpg during the winter both in daily driving, and about 33mpg on the highway. For efficiency  "There is no replacement for displacement".  It was about $76k. The CTS-V is going to be about $105K...
And I like my chevy http://gilmore.chem.northwestern.edu/dsc_0516.jpg   the one on the right will be replaced with a CTS-V  when it shows up, its already been ordered.   How much money the amplifier costs is silly.   I have at least one of every stax headphone since 1970 with the exception of the 4070 (and I'm still kicking myself over this)   I have just about every grado made   Lcd2,Lcd3, He6,qualia and a bunch more I forgot   At least $20k in...
