    I upgraded from the Audioengine N22 integrated amp used as a power amp. The Saga has remained in the system with a new production Psvane tube.

    The improvements that the Aegir brought were a smoother treble and more open and resolving midrange without getting analytical.

    And they sound good too. Or don't sound, whatever. And I even have silver ones, which probably don't sound as good as purple. :smile:

    Mr. Cowen gifted me a complete set of tubes for a Cary amp, if he wanted paisley cables I would try to make them for him.:smile_phones:

    Seems that only appeals to Apple folk

    @Paladin79 cross quoting this...I’m sure you have seen these before.... if not, I thought you would particularly like the bottle topper!

    I have seen the bottom photo before but not the bottle stopper.

    In the top photo, they appear to be using the springs from watch band retainers. I have a fairly large kit of those, I may have to try it out. I have plenty of tubes.

    IMG_0760.jpg Some of my work with dud tubes on the right, a headphone rack, all wiring is internal. Both tubes are light but it may not show well in the photo.

    What is the tube amp to the left? Is it a Glenn amp? Also the spider tubes remind me of Ghost in the Shell robots...they look pretty cool! I like the bottle topper also pretty unique!

    Cary SLA 70 Mark II, I also have a Cary phono preamp I am borrowing and may luck into another piece in the near future. They lend themselves well to upgrades and general maintenance, this style amp is probably 20 years old so I have replaced many capacitors.

    This one is class A push-pull and produces about 35 watts per channel, plenty of power for the speakers I use. I like class A but it is not for everyone, especially when using tubes. My downstairs stays cool year round so that helps. :smile_phones:

    Because I know nothing about tubes, especially when used for structural purposes, I wonder how many cycles that tube will endure as a hp holder.
