    Well they used the 300b tubes. ;)s3axh320gwn8.jpg
    All the empty sockets took 300b this was a massive amp. The other tubes for that amp are 6SN7 and one 6SL7 I believe

    Other WE products

    Yes I know the gentleman I chatted up for a good long time would not let me take any pictures straight down into it because the patent had not been approved yet. Those guys were great to talk to.

    During Axpona 2019 the cables in the Legacy Audio room were Douglas Connection! :) We hope to continue to be the cables Legacy turns to for all their future shows. Photo courtesy Part-Time Audophile.

    What a great company to be associated with, and also great coverage of the Legacy room and your cables in that article!

    Everyone from Legacy who I interacted with was extremely friendly and helpful. I started asking about their Studio HD speaker which wasn't playing at the time, and the gentleman running the room immediately offered to give me a demonstration of them. Within 5 minutes, they were rearranging the seats and setting up the second system that had them so I could hear them. Very cool! They had a huge presence and somehow managed to fill that large and acoustically difficult ballroom space with crystal clear sound. I was pretty impressed at how well they were doing in this very less than ideal space, can only imagine their performance in a smaller room.

    I actually mentioned your cables to them before I saw the big banner and reusable bags that they were giving out. Their setups all sounded very nice.

    Cool show report. However, he though HSU Research had large speakers? I wonder if he was mixing them up with JTR Speakers?

    This is not a large speaker.

    Here's what he had to say about Skip's room:

    "Rosso Fiorentino Fiesole speakers. ($7.5k) As can be seen in the photo of the Lumin U1, Johnny Cash's Ghost Riders of the Sky was playing when I snapped these photos. A punchy sound, with nice presence on vocals. Not overly polite sounding."

    @Hermitism, Someone other than me used the word "polite" as a way to describe sound. So you see, it's a thing!

    I'm planning on writing two Axpona 2019 articles. My "Top 3 dream rooms" (exorbitantly priced) and my "Top 3 reality rooms" (priced within reason).
