    Matt does indeed own one and he wouldn't let me take it when I was picking up some other stuff from his house.

    If I still had my A5-CR amp, I would buy this just for samesies! Great player at a great price.

    GLWS!

    I do have your A5-CR. :)

    Makes this very appealing, but not in the cards for me at the moment...

    So, not to thread jack, but if Matthew Polk owns one....I'm guessing this may be the last silver disc spinner one ever buys??

    The A5 uses a pair of JAN 6112 tubes, but they last many thousands of hours in use. Finding new ones is not an issue but I think they are supposed to be a matched pair in this application.

    Would someone that owns one, hit the high points? Would this pair well with a SS amp. I have a Anthem 225 as well as a Parasound P5 and HCA-1500A.

    TIA.
