    @purrin1:

    Decided that these should go two different ways and not together. Can't decide which? See here for reference: https://www.superbestaudiofriends.o...ons-stream-of-consciousness.7998/#post-262934

    Freya+ Tube List

    2. @jexby, CO


    Freya S List

    1. @Hooncake, NJ
    2. @Skyline, TN
    3. @Soups, WA
    4. @Clemmaster, CA
    @ChaChaRealSmooth:

    I think we'll have the Freya + go west to east, and the opposite for the Freya S. Why? Because I just came up with it just now.

    We'll keep it at 8 per preamp. Tour order as of 7/11 is NOT finalized; names will be rearranged when the members are final.

    Can I get in on Freya+ loaner?

    Just bought a passive preamp from Khozmo recently & would like to compare it to a tube pre, for which I still have a stash of quality 6SN7 tubes.

    I'm located in Pasadena, CA

    Would love to try the S.

    Is there any chance a set of balanced interconnects can be included in the box?

    Should I ask if Canada is possible? Or are we perma-banned from loaners? Would love to hear the S.

    @ChaChaRealSmooth , I’m in LA. Should I be at the bottom of the list, per your original plan?

    Edit: also, I’m on vacation until Sunday :)

    @Thenewerguy009, send the + to me after you're done. I'm actually pretty curious about it myself.

    @ChaChaRealSmooth once you have evaluated the Freya +, could I get a stab at it?
    TIA
