    NICE! :D
    There is no genuine justice in any scheme of feeding and coddling the loafer whose only ponderable energies are devoted wholly to reproduction. Nine-tenths of the rights he bellows for are really privileges and he does nothing to deserve them.

    Doro,
    Well I swapped out tubes at the same time and then put all the screws back on the lid. It certainly didn't degrade the sound any that I can tell.

    I also use the tube damping HAL-Os on the Jolida cdp. The rings in combination with the "blue ball" isolation rack I made has yielded some nice gains as a cumulative effect on pinpoint placement / focus and separation in the sound. I feel that these small tweaks alone may be hard to recognize but when you start adding a few together and then you take them all away then one may notice a difference. Here too though, no harm done by the tweaks and it leaves one with some peace of mind that you've done everything you can at a small and very reasonable cost. Systems certainly sound good that's for sure.

    I was going to go with the Pearl Tube Coolers, but after reading posts by others who had owned both, the general consensus was that the Herbie product was superior.

    Doro,

    I love everything about that amp, Great Design, Great Build, Nice front LED's, Sound neutral from nothing to everything 0% to 100% never changes sound, never colors music.

    Thanks again Doro for talking me into that brand, I'm sold. Can't afford everything about that company, but what I own is sweet.

    I was definitely impressed the Myryad. Looks to be VERY well built. Weighs in at 43lbs and the Denon weighs 37lbs. Not to shabby!

    - Front Faceplate, kind of hard to take a picture of the faceplate, it is silver and it 'shines'...only way to do it is take a dark pic...sucks...but ya know! Awesome looking amp!

    BK.jpg
    Here is the rear of the unit, has XLR and RCA hook ups, and nice big speaker terminals which annoy me to death... not so bad now that I have nanners

    BKInternals1.jpg
    Here is where everything seems to run to, must be the mastermind... also kind of explains why the left side of the amp is so hot while the right side is cold as an icecube...NICE big heat sinks...I like it!

    BKInternals3.jpg
    Here is the layout of the amp, two big blue bad arse caps and a nice big toridial transformer! AWESOME! I also like how this amp looks easy to repair, infact...it would be extremely easy to replace some of thise internal wiring...*ponders*

    BKInternals2.jpg
    Yall shoulda known I couldnt go without including a big picture of the BIG BLUE BAD ARSE caps didnt ya?? Well here it is! BIG AND BLUE...

    Thats my B&K, have fun :p :cool:

    Regarding the AMC, cost aside, were you disapointed when you first opened it up? I mean, it looks like very little to expect good performance or value. Not to imply that bigger is better and that more IS better.

    These AMC's are known as entry level seperates and have a bit of a following for being better/higher quality than pioneer and denon when it comes to certain products, players, amps etc. etc.

    From that picture I see little to indicate and anything more than a cool case and a zenith inside. Not trying to offend or anything just my simple opinion.

    ZERO,

    I agree..

    I have a carver m200t and a parasound P/HP, and they are what also showed me what I was missing with just a Yamaha AVR on my RT2000i`s...

    they were the inexspensive beginnings of what has become my
    love/obsession with mid/upper audio...

    It`s been downhill ever since...!!!:D

    The first guess was correct Gidrah.....Lancer 44....with a nice nameplate on the back with "John B Lansing's" name proudly displayed.

    Russman commented that the driver complement is a 8" full range and an 8" PR. I have allready given them to Russman otherwise I would certainly have shipped them to you for free also.

    What goodie would you like? I have all kinds of stuff. Let me know something that you need.

    DAMN! Those LE8t's and PR8's make for a smooooth combo. With tubes it's even more so.

    I'm set for freebies. Unless you happen to have a spare disco ball laying around. :D
