First Western Electric Loudspeakers
Private collector, you can see his ego, pride and purpose of life LOL!

Only 40 made, from 1920s, shipped with armed guns pointing at your face :p

No part 2....
Yeah seriously, a 1920 speaker was about to demonstrate to summit-fi amateur's that they have no clue their modern trashy gear has not improved for over 100 years and they have been lied to! LOL

Don't tell them that, they might cry.

Here we have 1930s Western Electric Horn Speakers
I cut to 5:04 in the clip, or just rewind the clip and listen to some history.

I was there in Munich with MR CHUNG,Silbatone guys, some fanatic constructors and enthusiastic Audience. There were 4 meetings like this, as I remember. All original WE speakers were presented with Silbatone electronics, Frank Schroeder tt and arms, JC Morrison woofers and so on. One of my unforgetable experiences. I wish it could happen again. NOTHING currently avaliable stuff on The market can compare.

From VinylSavior:

Initial pricing will be 8500 Euros (within EU including VAT) / 7150 Euros (export). Price will be raised by 500 Euros later on. The price includes Elrog ER300B and NOS 6DN7 and rectifiers. Any 300b can be used. The unit can also be ordered without output tubes. Stay tuned for photos of the final build when assembly is finished.

Maybe because good 6SN7s are rare and crazy expensive? But I guess in practice I agree with you, if I were to get this amp (which I'm not) I would want to use my 6SN7 equivalents.

What do you guys think about the “one impedance for all headphones“ design on the Mayer amp? Would this become a problem if you feel like using planar/grado/zmf on the same output?
I know there is a att switch but this would not effect damping?
What are you thoughts?

Does anyone here know of any amp builders in Europe? Thinking of getting something built in the near future.

The most well known guy, recently passed away at a rather young age. (Thomas behind Ultrasonic studios)

Whitebird amplification does custom Jobs afaik.
Lucarto-audio maybe as well

Both from poland.

Halgorythme is an amp builder based in France. They have a 300B headphone amp for a semi-reasonable cost of 3200€.
