Assuming they were fixed, they've probably blown or the cat's pissed on them.

Steve, now you will be able to hear the changes on the TT properly, a very sweet experiance, 'he did tell you so', bow at the shrine to (modern) valves. . . . ?

RE: Icon Audio ST40

Good on you Steve but, I hope you don't mind, I don't get it.

All this 'I'm happy with the Brio-R' etc ... and now you spend another fortune on an amplifier?

What is it with the constant lack of satisfaction?

regards

RE: Icon Audio ST40

My Pathos came for a home demo and never left... :grin:

I knew you would like the valve sounding, it has a very especial 3d sound stage and imaging.

Another plus in valve amps or a hybrid like mine, is that you can tweak a bit with the presentation of the amp by changing the valves, i did that in the Pathos, didn't like the Eletro Harmonix 6922 that came with it and manage to get some other valves to demo at home and bought a pair of Amperex boggleboy and a pair of JJ with gold pins. 

Now I think PP will be next on the list to buy a valve amp... Wink

Very nice Steve, look forward to your comparisons between the Elicit, Brio and the lovely valves!
