    there are plenty of interconnects made of gold alloy. at typical audiophile cable prices gold just ain't that expensive, comparatively

    Help please! in choosing an amp.

    i think the PPX3 Slam is significantly better than the stock MPX3. i prefer great dynamics over absolute refinement, though, so ymmv. the 5687 output tubes on the Slam has a lot more oomph than the 6SN7 outputs on the stock MPX3, and i find the 5687 does a great job of waking the senns up. 5687s...

    Need blues recommendations...

    the Skip James albums recorded in the 1960s sound much better than the vintage stuff, and James played much of the same material, so the post-rediscovery stuff is where i would start for anyone that doesn't want to deal with the lower sound quality material.

    PS-1 vs. HP-1000

    i doubt i would sell my pair for $2000. i would have to think long and hard about it and also have an extended audition with the L3000s to see if they are really as good as i think they are.

    Nub Question: Light Bulbs

    while you can, in fact, have a regular ol' light bulb in an audio circuit in order to introduce various effects, what you are referring to are vacuum tubes (or valves, as they are known in the UK). this should give a you a good starting point to understanding tube audio.

    Most universal: Headfive vs. Gilmore Lite

    i haven't heard either amp, per se, but i used to own an HA-1 MkII (which the head-five is based off of) and i've heard several dyanlo implementations. assuming that neither screws with the basic formula, which i doubt they do, i would say that they are both very well suited to a variety of...

    STAX 4070 GET! (+BIG PICS)

    i think they look very classy in the same way that the L3000 looks very classy.

    Jazz at the Pawnshop

    i picked up the XRCD version of this recently, mostly so i could hear the supposed "greatest jazz recording evar!11!!" i gotta say, it's not the most original jazz recording i've heard, but damn if it isn't just like sitting at a real performance at a little funky coffee shop. i thought Patricia...

    Need blues recommendations...

    a lot of his music is more old time music, as opposed to absolutely being "the blues", but i think Mississippi John Hurt is probably about as good as it gets in the acoustic styles. the Vanguard recordings from the 1960's are very good, and the 1920's Okeh recordings are a lot of fun (if a bit...
