    Secret Machines- Now Here Is Nowhere About my third listen to this and it's starting to reveal itself. Well crafted and a big sound.

    The Hold Steady- Separation Sunday More gritty tales of Urban America woven around a recurring cast of characters; Holly the Hoodrat, Gideon, Charlemagne and co. Lovely stuff.

    Yeah Ant, their first album was a great singalong, I still know every line. I finished school the year before you. I decided not to play for our 1st XV and played club rugby with my older mates instead. Barely got my university entrance cert but it was a hell of a good year. Even developed a little beer belly when I had a few weeks on crutches mid-season. Cheers my bro.

    Sad face indeed Daz. And then there's the huge hours of running in the Psvane valves need before they're optimised. 😲

    Hank Williams III- Rebel Within I always have a fun time listening to Hank, don't even have to be inebriated. Agents Of Oblivion More of the Dax Riggs shapeshifting formula. Works for me.

    Accuphase A70 & Doge 7 DAC

    Doge will fit the upgrade valves, they'll be properly tested and should give many years of trouble free operation. So don't be put off getting valve gear. The nos (new old stock) valves I referred to were made in the 1950's/60's and as they are desirable to audiophiles with valve amps, supplies of the most popular types are slowly drying up and becoming more expensive. I'm not a dac person but at $3000aud, you will get plenty of suggestions for alternatives to the Doge. Hopefully someone who owns or has heard the Doge 7 will come along too.

    Accuphase A70 & Doge 7 DAC

    If you do buy the Doge, the stock valves will be adequate but get the Psvane TII valve upgrade. You would struggle to get 6 nos 12ax7 and 2 nos 12at7 for the Doge upgrade price of $240usd. Quality nos replacements would probably cost close to twice that, 12ax7 have gotten very expensive. Plenty of Sna members are well versed in Accuphase, they'll know if your preamp is a good combo for the A70.
