Heh, I remember stumbling into the tuber forum with a Maggotbox 175 and some weird cat said, "Welcome to the dark side!" Remember that Jay? Sure beats sand amps all to hell unless I want to listen to those big Vandersteen Three hogs. A pair of Adcom GFA 555s with four big ass 15,000mf/100v filter caps in each amp
drives those Vandys to levels not seen in tube amps. Unless I want to get into some monster transmitter tubes each the size of a fifth of bourbon I'm stuck with the Adcoms! Happily! Bluestreak ran the same amps with some #2s. Now he's got the Mac gear with some Zilchlabs he brewed up.
Shit, too bad we're so freakin' far apart. Man, I'll bet I can drive politics out the window and down to the corner and into the storm drain. So can youse guys, I'll bet.
Here's a funny one for you guys. I had a asshole neighbor in the condo next door who insisted on some late night construction noise...so I put a 30hz test tone CD in and started to crank it up. Those threes are rated to down to 27hz! I never even got it to halfway up, it was like a flashback, I swear the walls were breathing and my eyeballs were bouncing around and swimming in their sockets, hehh.
Cured the noisy neighbor's shenanigans. They thought a helicopter was landing on the roof. Patty came tearing down the stairs thinking it was an earthquake! I've never seen her move so fast! Man oh man, was she ever pissed!
