I can't get my eyes off that easter egg.
Amazing! At this level, consider getting a pair of the new ‘21 WE 300B. I have a ‘05 pair in there and they beat the EML, JJ, and GL. The ‘21...
Just tested it and besides a couple of burned out lights on the FM tuner window, it’s working great. Visually caps look good too

I have this project in mind to take my Saga OG, add XLR connectors to it and two Cinemag transformers for balanced to SE conversion
Does anyone have a recommendation for a good set of HD650/HD600 connectors? I really want to try building the Mogami star-quad cable. @fraggler Do...
There's a SAGA OG up for sale for $170. You can turn on the tube buffer or use it as passive.
I did make a couple of changes that really elevated this system:
-- WE 300B tubes ('05 tubes)
-- Focal Elex
I also changed the Mullard GZ34 (f32)...
Just got a Focal Elex pair. Loving it with Studio B + Gungnir!
