    Either your DSL is not working properly or you have a slow PC or your PC is not functioning properly, if you have broadband you should have no problems opening these pages ;)

    I suggested to Brian that we could try the EML's in the Yamamoto but for whatever reason we didn't? MikE

    About the sub. I loved to looks of it. But I've yet to see anything built by Terry I didn't like! I thought the sub worked well with the Abby's. And I don't usually like subs!

    Hi MikE,

    Thanks for all of the fine photos! And thanks as well for setting up that wonderful Moth amp of yours in my show room.

    Cheers,
    Brian

    Thanks Brian

    You know, those closeups of the Yamamoto are some of the best [digital] photos I've taken. I feel bad that Luther didn't get a opportunity to show off his fine amp. :( MikE

    Well, given that one of my primary goals at AK-Fest 2004 was to show off the new Yamamoto A-08 amplifier - and because I prefer to show off components in their "stock" configurations - I wound up playing the A-08 with its RCA 45 output tubes until around 3:00. At that point, I realized that MikE had been waiting VERY patiently to try his EML-equipped Moth amp with the Cain & Cain Abbys, and I turned the show over to him.

    Now, I was informed at this point that the Cain & Cain sub would have to leave at around 4:00 - I had just sold the sub, and it's ride to Ann Arbor couldn't hang around until the end of the show. I suppose that I could have switched back to the Yamamoto amp with the EML 45s at 3:30, but I did not want to short-change MikE, given the effort he put into bringing his Moth amp. And, once the sub was gone (and the sub made a BIG difference!), I did not want the A-08 to be judged in comparison to the sound of the Moth with the sub in place.

    Needlesss to say, I am looking forward to getting some EML 45s for my Yamamoto amp - many of the differences that we noticed between our amplifiers MikE attributed to the EML output tubes, and I would like to verify this in my own system. Rest assured that I will post my impressions of the "re-tubed" A-08 in the not-too-distant future.

    Re: Brian

    I don't normally like subs either! But Terry's new design looks to be a killer - and I'm betting that it will work with a wide range of high-efficiency loudspeakers...
