Red Dawns, yes. I've never heard the Blue Heavens in comparison so I can't really say, Don.

I've had the MC30s back in the system for about a week, as I'm planning to loan the EL84 monos to ejfud for a while. They're really very nice and I hope to keep them for a good long while - it's nice to have some higher wattage amps in the stable, and at ~30W these things are sledgehammers compared to what I typically run. They don't have the magic of a good triode amp and they're not quite as quiet as most of my amps, but they are very listenable.

I changed things up a bit at the front end last night, too.

It's too early to comment, but here's what's at the sharp end of the stick right now...

man those headshells look so cool, what brand is it? what is the concept behind the design? I rememeber reading about them but cant seem to pull the details out of the ol' noodle.

Thanks, guys.

Jeremy, that's an Orsonic AV-101s headshell. Not sure about the concept, but there's definitely a cool factor!

If it gets too nasty looking, send it on to a place that favors clutter-my room! Outstanding, maybe one of the best examples of true DIY spirit on AK. Up there with the late Zilch. I would love the opportunty to experience true high-end stuff. My chances to audition gear other than my current setups is small to nill. I guess one has to form relationships and be prepared to travel. I'm in a pretty big area (St. Louis) but almost never see people with really amazing high end stuff. Lots of vintage and really nice gear, but I yearn to hear big Sonus Fabers and Accuphase or Krell. Here I go dreaming again! I need to scout out a dealer and after months of inquiry, arrange to hear some amazing stuff. I'm sure you have made a superb effort to get the quality up, I'd love to set up your room and play with placement. That would be something.

Any noticeable difference other than aesthetic, Nate?

I can't say yet, as I haven't swapped carts around at all. Can't judge it based on a sample of one, but it does sound nice.
