Hallo my friend
Apologize for the late answer, but i wasn't informed about new post in this thread.
I have no experience with Calvayas , but had been using it with few Tektron amps
which he mates perfectly , as could be expected, Yammy A-08s , DRD Welbornes,
AN and also with EL 84 based Cube Audio mono amplifiers. In any occasion this
preamp performs pretty much with the same signature , should I say lack of sonic
signature. Very smooth ,liquid and balanced. Slightly on the warm side, but with all
micro-dynamic prevented and sublime articulation. It makes playback very vivid and
life-like. It is relaxed ,but not laid back with strong sense of presence. Soundstage is
very wide ( at least with my horns ) and slightly taken back.
All amps were SET , except Cubes which are PSE Pentode. Hope that helps a bit.
If you are in UK , feel free to contact me and pop up for listening.
This pre is indirect heated triode circuit with full wave rectification , just to clarify.
