        I've seen BF live many times, playing different styles, always feels he's recreating a tune from the ground up.

      BW 2 with Verité closed from Holo (Spring 2): hits hard and fast, intended for a 3rd location but...

        SilentPC a great option. I built a fanless PC in a regular case using the Nofan CR-80EH with some quiet fans that are basically silent at <400rpm. I'm using the recent Intel temperature throttling to control temps. If there's just music playing I can shut the fans off completely without issue.

        Sounds like a recipe for fantastic synergy.

        Can’t ask for more. Timbre of a Blackwood Auteur and the soundstage of the EC Af. Sounds like mixing a fantastic whiskey and cigar.

      I recall that you mentioned having a Morpheus on order. I don't recall hearing any impressions. Curious whether you received it and your thoughts on it? - Lee

      ETA: Located your thoughts on the Morpheous in a couple of threads. Sorry for the intrusion. - Lee

        I'm a fan of Ericsson input tubes also, been using their 5842s in my 445 for a couple years now. Neutral sound signature and high technical performance.
