Thanks Bill. 

But I can't say it was purely altruistic since I became unemployed first.

Anyway, it looks like the guys I know here like your gear!  And it also looks like your getting some good industry recognition.  Congratulations and hope you do well in spite of the economy.

Man, you guys keep getting all new toys.
I spent yesterday taking old toys to UPS store that I had sold on ebay to pay for new toys.

Glad you showed up Jack.

Jack
where you been hiding

Gene is not too far off mostly due to trying to take care of my mother.

But I bounce in some forums to keep my sanity (OK Gene, what's left of it).  I guess it took me awhile to figure out what was missing over at AC.

Audiowise it feels like I'm just sticking my head out of the rabbit hole.

And Evan, I'm still using the mover's blanket for sound control in front of my 60" display.  That was a great idea.  Thanks.

Jack I should use it more . I just was playing my system at concert levels and saw my plasma shaking on the wall :duh :rofl:

Then maybe put one underneath the plasma if it falls off   :rofl:

So Bill, what do you think would have better synergy with the Purity One?,

- 1 matched pair of Telefunken 12AU7/ECC82 Ribbed Plates West Germany
- 1960s era Amperex
- RCA cleartops.

I noticed the reviewer on your site really liked the Amperex, seems like he reviewed a Purity One not much different than this pre-production unit.

Synergy really depends on a lot of personal taste, associated equipment and the room. What I like or what works in my system in my room may not do it for you. I really like the RCA cleartops but find the Raytheon (made for and marked Baldwin) to be the best tube in my arrangement.

The best inexpensive NOS tube I have found is the Sylvania 5814. Musc beter than any current production and can be found for less than $10 ea.

I like a very crisp, clean and fast presentation with lots of air and micro detail. Probably one of the reason I also like a lot of silver wiring in my systems.

I have similar taste. Any thoughts about NOS 6DJ8s? (Inexpensive ones would be nice.  :D)

Bill -

It was a pleasure meeting you today, thanks for your time.

The Purity One is up and running, and Joni Mitchell's Hejira is on, and sounds fine.

This is a nice piece of audio gear.

Gene, It was a pleasure meeting you in person as well. Glad you made it home safe. We have another 5 inches of snow on the ground now and I just came in from shoveling the driveway. I'm really starting to hate winter more and more every year. :duh

 Be sure to keep us posted as you play with different tubes.
