^ Beautiful shot!!! But darn-shucks, and I just ordered the CSP2+ from Decware. But I think I will be pleased with it as a simple night light.

Tell me, Skylab, I know it's new but how does your LCD-2 sound on them so far and how long did it take for Steve and team to build your Mini-Torii?

The Mini-Torri is nearly ideal with the LCD-2, as they are an almost ideal match technically.  And it took about 2 weeks.  The Mini-Torri uses regulator tubes which GLOW really brightly!  And I even managed to get a little of the purple glow of the 6V6G's in this shot...

^ Very, very nice. Regulator tubes are a new one for me. Never heard of them or recognize their numbers--OA3, OB3, OC3, OD3. Do you know of any other hp amps that use regulator tubes? And yes, nice glow on all of them, especially the regulators.

Oh man, that IS sexy, lol.  Where's that bluish light coming from?  Not in the tube, but the ambient light...it almost looks like you have a black light on, lol.  What does the front panel of that amp look like?  Seems weird to have the headphone jack like that...

There really isn't a "front panel" - the amp is in a wood base.  Everything is on top.
 
The bluish background light is because I took the picture at dawn.

Well, this shot is neither night time, nor is it glowing, but it IS an unusual 1948 GE 6AS7G, with it's copper radioator "glowing" in the sun...not something you see every day, figured I'd share this tube with you guys:

^ Wow! Great Shot. It looks like it's either ready to blast off into outer space, or boil over on some science fiction gas burner.
