    NoVA / DC Meet May 25, 2013 Impressions

    Hi everyone!   It was a blast meeting you all!!!  I took some photos but they ended up being really blurry because I made some really dumb mistakes with my camera settings; my lens is also too slow.  Hah!  (A bunch of photos ended up being unusable. )

    PPX3 Dilemma...

    The SLAM and your headphones deserve a better source. I would strongly recommend giving some better sources a try. The SLAM is a good amplifier, but perhaps solid state is your preference. It's not strange to prefer "solid state state" over the "tube sound". There are of course tube amps that...
