While Frank makes very good amps as Nick has found out I don't think he is going to give up his Supratek for that preamp as I know I wouldn't.

Agreed. That Supratek is so very good and I can tune it with a pair of 6NS7s…Raytheons right now

Looks like they r even here

Yes, the power supply for the HAL MS-6 Music Server is a GaN based USB-C unit.  They are very good and quiet!

Hal how do you like the Orchard Monos. Are they enough power and are you using your music server as a preaamp?

The Orchid Starkrimson Mono's sound excellent with my planar arrays.  I use a prototype Danville Signal dspNexus 2x8 as the preamp and DSP crossover driven by the HAL MS-6 Music Server.
