  1. Cool. What JBLs you running? 4343 or 4344
  2. i'll grab them. PM incoming
  3. For the money it is hard to pass on the build and sound quality. Will become legendary in a few years time. Found best when paired with a Auditorium 23 SUT and Denon DL103. Needless to say the MM output is quite nice too. Buyer would be more than happy with this unit.
  4. Yes this is local delivered unit. 240v

Item: SPEC RSA-717EX Amplifier Location: Melbourne, VIC Price: $2500 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Not being used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Awesome integrated amp. This is a very valve like sounding amp. Does not sound like your typical class d amplifier. Has no problem powering my JBL 4344.

  6. If you are after more tone and sweetness have you tried tube rolling the valves in your amp. I have the same Vincent amp. The amp responds very well to different valves in the input stage. I have tried all the usual suspects, teles, amperex, brimar and mullard. Mullard long plate mc1 in the window position was by far the best. I know the valves aren't cheap but they could save you thousands on a valve amp that may not match the Yamaha's. I agree with Kelossus stick with a ss amp to drive the Yamaha's . Valve pre and SS amp is what i would do. I had the vincent driving my JBL 4344. Played beautifully. Do not underestimate the convenience of a remote and tone controls.
  7. No i haven't tried that valve. But they do seem similar to the 50's Amperex d-getters. What i like about the Amperex and Gec's is that they project the sound forward of the speakers and have more z-depth. The teles are flatter and tend to outline/spotlight the music. Cool phono. I like the leben rs-30
  8. I used to have a stash of GEC 6as7g. Awesome tubes. I greatly prefer the a2900 over the telefunkens, mullards, 50's amperex and brimar 6060T. If you like the sound stage and transparency of the tele's, think of the GEC's as a Tele but with meat on the bones. It has the tone and body closer to the mullards. I tend to find Tele's sound lean where as the GEC more organic. Bass is much better than 801s. However they tend to be more microphonic. BTW what phono you using?
  9. dwbasement have you tried GEC A2900 tubes? I use them in my phono.
  10. I have heard this combo and it is one of the best analog setups I have heard. I was stunned by the absolute speed stability and quietness of this TT. The lack of noise and rock solid pitch truly creates the inkiest black background. The Thales tonearm with it's tangential tracking is an engineering masterpiece. This arm tracks like a beast. From the first to last track, the solidity and precision of the soundstage is always maintained. Instruments will not shift position or waver over the course of the record. Musicians appear in a realistic 3d space, no pop up book effect here folks. This combination of ultra quiet and stable TT with unparalleled tracking ability from the Thales really allows you to hear your records. This combo always reminds me why I love and choose vinyl records. End game here folks.
