    Very good time, if only to finally met the other 2/3 of the "AK brain trust", as well as sampling very nice sound from every room. MikE

    Your reply got zapped with the original thread - sorry. Weirdest thing, after so many posts instead of adding another photo/post it would erase the previous photo/post?! So I asked Grump to delete the entire thread. The Cain sub is beautiful, I'm afraid my photos don't do it justice. Brian was selling the Cain speakers/sub at half price and someone [Tony Ho?] snapped up the sub [quick] to pair with his Abby's.

    The tubes in the aluminum carrying case are RCA ux245 [45 type] Globes. The ones in the amp are my EML solid plate 45's and the ones in the tube caddy in bubble wrap are National-Union ST 45's. We only listened to the EMLs. Thanks for the comment on the pixs! Here's a better photo of the ux245. MikE

    Mike, I'll just post again, Nice Pics!!! :p:
    That sign in the picture says the 45 DRD is only 1.8wpc? I would
    have thought it would be more. Did you get a chance to run them
    along with yours?

    45 output

    The only tubes I ran were the EML's which are rated at 3.5wpc. The NOS ST 45's are 2wpc and the Globes 1.8wpc. The other ratings listed are for 2a3's which are 3.5-5wpc, again depending on the particular output [2a3] tube. So when we compared the the Yamamoto and the Moth it wasn't really a fair comparision because Brian was using the "stock" NOS ST 45's and many of the differences he noted I attributed to the EML 45. It has a higher rated output and subjectivly sounds even more robust than that. Of course, there were other variables at play as well. Brian was using the Yamamoto pre-amp and when you factor in the design and parts of the two amps it's hard to say what affected what. We did hooked up the pre-amp to the Moth and we both felt it "didn't need it", that it worked just fine in passive mode. MikE

    Why didn't you try the EMLs in the Yamamoto?
