    This is my preamp. Speakers are Merlins, TT is P25 Rega. The Cary factory is 12 miles from my house. The preamp and amp have both received all available factory mods. Why not when you do not have to ship it. The amp was an original V12 when I bought it new, then I had it upgraded to the "R" version when it came out. Power tubes are Gold Lion KT77s.

    I checked on Pornhub, and they do have an "Ugly Porn" category, so I'm safe posting these pics of my Decware SE84C build here:

    Yes, but only K-Pop and speed metal. Try to play anything else and it delivers only this liquid, holographic blackground.

    This was the prototype for the EHHA II which later became Cavalli's Liquid Fire

    Sadly collecting dust on a shelf. As an aside I named it "Beware the Dalek"

    When I first glanced at the top picture I thought I was looking at a pair of speakers and that pattern was the grill. Wow, wouldn't have thought they were amps at first passing - impressive.

    And based on price of those unobtanium Jfets, about a $24K street price.

    But dude, you removed the very carefully applied nano-quantum alignment particles that helped bring greater consistency in the time-space phase equalization! That costs thousands and thousands of dollars to achieve!

    Oh yeah, one off's. They're sitting in his listening room over in the corner, claims the jfets would go for "fabulous" amounts of money so left the leads long in case he ever decided to harvest them.

    There's actually 1200+ per side, then x2 mono blocks. 20/40 8/4Ω
