    Funny thing, tho, to check the Aegir thread and see a guy that owned amps from Thomas Mayer replacing them with Aegir.

    An amp I used to own, a one-off from Triode Lab. Single Ended Pentode. EF86 -> EL84s.

    Considering how different they are, what was his reason? Practicality? Different speakers?

    Not only yours, the name is pretty much unbeatable. The company's CEO has to be one of the most self-confident people in the industry!

    Now, that's my kind of amplifier porn!

    Two phono inputs? Wow. Of course, nothing marked as "CD" or anything else digital, as it predates them.

    Can we get X-rated here, with a picture of its backside, please?

    And he's since sold the Aegirs. Not saying he was shit faced and made a grave mistake or whether one is on the level of the other. But the Aegirs came and went quickly.

    Thomas Mayer is top shelf trim. Aegir need not apply, even with beer goggles. Aegir, hardly knew her.

    Oh yes, quite a piece weighs a ton and really sounds quite good when fully warmed up.

    Well, I looked thru the whole thread and no DNA amps AND no Cary amps, SO i can contribute. First off is my DNA Stratus with the current hot set up. Ruby Tiger Select 6N1P, EML 5U4G and Psvane Acme 2A3s.
