This is such a unique and wonderful thread.

 

We are talking about amps, tubes, guided missile systems, music, pizza, cookies, ice cream, horses, ships, mojitos and girls all at the same time.................

Unfortunately, he cannot be replaced. It is a sad day but we can hope that his contributions will somehow live on.

Another great legend, his legacy will live on. RIP.

It should come as no surprise that his favorite quote was:

 

"He who would go 100 miles should consider 99 the halfway mark."

                                         - Japanese proverb

 

 

The the artist and the man was flat-out driven!

I will be writing that quote on the board here at work. That is an excellent way to view your work and the world.

 

RIP, Ken Shindo.

Yeah, even the less dear Lafite are also lovely:

Because of the Shindo craftsmanship and passion, owners often select likewise thoughtfully crafted speakers like the LaTours, Lafite or others.

 

This is one of my favorite Shindo's systems from an A-Gon ad - so simple. 

I can't remember who makes the speakers but I did try to persuade SO to buy them :biggrin:

Speaker stands are Audio Note, speakers looks alike to, but not original AN, are they DIY?

:thumb: Never too early to start good planing. Our resident designer continues to shine and has tremendous support. At what point and what show do we collectively push him onto to the big stage, say RMAF, "The Show," CES, Munich? Sure, some of his creations have turned up at regional head-fi meets. I'm talkin' 'bout his participation as a MOT with 2-3 killer amps to show. :veryevil: Let's help him crash the party!

 

What say you?

Someone posted this in another forum and I was wondering what you guys think. "Your 1958 Dutch made (X marking) Philips production GZ-34 / 5AR4 was the first version made after the metal base. If you had this tube and a metal base GZ-34 (all were Philips production) side by side, the internals would be identical: Double 'D' getters and smooth plates. I have not taken the time to do an A/B comparison but others who have claim they sound similar, if not identical, to the metal base version."
