This might be fun: http://www.amazon.com/Laser-Stars-Indoor-Light-Show/dp/B000VBNIP2/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1375044664&sr=8-3&keywords=stars+projector

Oh come now... If you are going to project the stars, let's do it right!

Silent notes made audible... and visible.

 

 

 

My wild weekend way out West, saw me wheel my Sansui G-22000 into the hotel room fresh from the repair shop!

 

LL

 

 

 

And add three new pieces to my audio rig. Shindo Laboratory - a pair of F2a Sinhonia monoblocks and Aurieges-MM preamp.

Will sit down with Glenn (virtually speaking) in a month or two and assess what my system needs and have him fill in the blanks.

I have, but luckily, I will be able to hear the WA7 on 8/10:D

So Frank I prefers the WA7 over the Glenn Amp OTL? I haven't heard the WA7.

I'll clean my room later but first I need to relax and get a few things off of my chest.

RCA and Mullard.

I really love the look of those Zu speakers... really want to get a pair when I have a bit more room than for just standmounts.

 

Are those Glenn monoblocks powering them?

Clayton, I can't sleep at night, these Mullard and RCA keep appearing in front of me.

I have the  Jeanne d'Arc syndrome, I hear voices the tubes are calling me.

Is it serious, anything to worry about?

 

The RCA Sofia traces look so good......... 

 

BTW what's that lovely cow doing on the floor?

He never said that.

On the topic of WA7 vs Glenn OTL, I have heard neither but in term of looks the WA7 is "Pretty Woman" while the GlennOTL is "Mad Max". Or Richard Simmons vs Dolph Lundgren.

Let me count the Logos.

 

A few weeks ago I made some new t-shirts with tube logos on spreadshirt.com. They refused to print the RCA logo and the Mullard logo and so I ended up with a Telefunken T-shirt only. I do have the logos in png format if anyone else is interested

Just flagged the SPAM above, our Bistro deserves biggrin.gifbetter. 

 

Anyway, after a long and difficult struggle this year to even set foot inside the listening room, things finally came together. Initially, I saved up for and sought WA5 monoblocks. But Jack (WooAudio) was unable to spec the amp to my requirements. Technically possible but my special request would have been disruptive to business and profit. Also too complicated without being tested. It had to do with the way the transformer is tapped for the K1K Output on the WA5 stereo amp. 

 

Then turned my attention to getting some Yamamoto kit which I long admired. Before the weekend I realized I reached my savings goal and was ready to buy the Yammo. I  had also long admired Shindo gears but could never afford them. Periodically, I'd follow Matt's adventures from Pitch Perfect Audio, who specializes in Shindo kit. I was on the website looking around prior to ordering my A-09S from the Importer for Yamamoto. 

 

Suddenly in that instance, I decided to engage Matt and just have a conversation about therolleyes.gif kits. WELL, we see how that went. I ended up forgoing other personal purchases to make it work but I am happy. Years ago, I wanted the Shindo 300B but still can't afford it. The F2a is my crawl before I walk phase. normal_smile%20.gif

 

Push-Pull design @ 40 wpc; each block weighs 40 lbs. Can't remember the signal-to-noise ration, cross-talk, noise floor ect, though I've seen it a few times. At some point year-end I hope to pair some small and very efficient speakers. In the mean time, gonna listen via headphones.

Oops sorry. I misunderstood. Never mind. :P

Frank I owns the WA5 (lucky guy) so if he says that the WA7 is very, very good, then that's a very, very good recommendation!

Yes, Glenn's monoblocks are powering the Zu Omens. They are very efficient speakers and they sound absolutely wonderful.

He's also the reviewer for Dagogo, so he is a pro reviewer.
