Well spotted Luc, my Topaz, testament to both of these amps nearly 2 years I've had them, many others have come and gone through the system these are still my main amps.

Yup, Topaz is a keeper isn't it. Out of interest: Have you still got the originals tubes in or have you rolled? I've not changed but I was thinking of slipping Earle a flitch of bacon and getting his views on rolling for the Topaz.

Sure is, still on the originals I had one go bad on me but lots of spares here from other purchases, I've also been thinking of a roll upgrade, I doubt bacon will get us much leeway with Earl somehow.:cool:

Do you have any idea how big a flitch is? Here's a pic of the last time SNA members marched down to Tootgarook with a flitch.

Earle was rapt. We got him a listening chair too.

Another D'Agostino design with VU meters. The Krell Evolution One monoblocks. Though , like Yamaha Mans KAS amps, they are kinda two chassis 'duoblocks' per channel.

Bottom chassis is power supply, top chassis amplifier.

Not sure where to post this. Not mine, but James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) has 11 of these towers doing their thing in a NY warehouse. Friend is there now.

This is not mine; I came across the pics in a current ebay listing and thought they belong in this thread.

So  after an epic journey to Radelaide and back I have arrived home with my new baby.

I have also learnt that VU meters are rather difficult and enjoyable things to try and photograph well.
