Robbie's Leben Lid Mod!

As most of you know, I’ve been a long-time fan of the Leben CS600 integrated amplifier, for it’s rugged & reliable build quality, it’s superb appearance, its great sound & musicality, and its flexibility in accommodating a lot of different power output types for tube swapping entertainment. The only nit I have to pick with […]

Jeff checking in ... I'm back!

I just got back home from two weeks of travel with little to no internet & email access most of the time, so I’m way behind on addressing comments & writing blog posts, and I’m playing tag with jet lag. I did get a chance to listen to a variety of live music performances of […]

Which is better? The Duelund DCA16GA, DCA20GA, or the Silver/Silk Interconnects?

Which is better? The Duelund DCA16GA, Duelund DCA20GA, or the Duelund Silver/Silk interconnects? The conclusion that I’ve come to is that they all are better, depending upon the application I’m using them for. For example, I had been using a set of nude Duelund DCA16GA interconnects to connect my vintage McIntosh MX110Z tuner-preamplifier and vintage McIntosh […]

The Murasakino Musique Analogue ‘Sumile’ MC Phonograph Cartridge Makes Me Smile!

The Murasakino Musique Analogue ‘Sumile’ MC phonograph cartridge makes me smile while I’m listening to music! The Sumile reminds me of the exotic Lefson Ultra resistors from France, and like the Ultra’s, the Sumile is astonishingly transparent & resolving, while being rich, natural, and exceedingly musical at the same time – a very nice magic trick! With the wirewound resistors […]

The New Sophia Electric EL34-ST Vacuum Tubes in the Leben CS600 Integrated Amplifier!

It’s been far too long since I’ve done some tube rolling, so I was delighted to hear from Sue & Richard at Sophia Electric that they wanted me to give their new Sophia Electric EL34-ST vacuum tubes a review for Positive Feedback. I’m a real pushover for the ST bottle shape, I just love the way […]
