Hello, HEnry, could you please give more details on the Ultravalve? IS it the one in Van Alstine website? IT does not specify power. ALso i keep looking into Miveera audio but he seems to be off on a tour...He does not list any amp...Am i to understand the Takashi you recommended me has been increased in price due to a more luxurious casing?. If so, maybe the Ultravalve is preferable? I have written to them sending them the graph of the Virgo, to ask for their opinion...BUt since you heard both i would appreciate any details. FUrthermore, could you tell me more details regarding why HYpex modules, the NCore NC400 for instance, would not be as good a choice (as the Mireva)?. I am saying because there are easily available either built by other people or HYpex itself offers a kit to build them and seem pretty easy to build (no soldering they say...but in the video i think there is a bit of soldering for the loudspeaker posts). And in their website they say the specs are even better than pure class a amps... If you prefer i can send you a personal message, if it is no longer of interest to the group...Thanks a lot, Martin

Wow, just sffin’ wow. As I was watching the video, I was thinking that I don’t heal very fast anymore. I’d like to take something a little more tame up the climb though. Like at about a third the speed.

Story from Brazilian racing driver - Cristiano Da Matta
When I started racing my father told me, ‘Cristiano, nobody has three balls but some people have two very good ones.

I'd like to try a Hagerman Audio Labs Cornet 3.  It's a departure from the older Cornets as it's powered from a 9v wall wort that feeds a voltage booster.  It still uses three tubes like the oldies, but has a smaller form.  The reviews are good.  And, it's assembled for $459 with free shipping.

It's funny we are talking about this.  I got an email from elusive disk this evening wishing me a Happy Memorial Day, and of course, telling me about sales.  Angry

Anyone else hear another phono pre that’s “Truth” approved. I’m told Vista Audio makes a good one. Some people like one by Lounge audio, but a reviewer  said Lounge sucked on YouTube. Recommendations?

I agree completely. Happy Memorial Day somehow reduces the holiday to burgers on the grill.

We should all take the time to at least think about those who gave their lives so we can do what we do.

I personally don't think  "happy Memorial Day" is appropriate for a day honoring those who gave all. I like "hope you have a peaceful Memorial Day".

Hi guys
How do I configure the crown for running just one sub?
The Mrs is getting pissed off after redecorating so one has to go  Sad

Take a look at the manual.  It runs in bridged mode and low pass.  The manual will tell you which output terminals to use.  Simple stuff.  Smiley

Oh, and you'll need a y-connector to sum the inputs.

UPDATE:
I found the manual.  Connect the summed input wire to the RCA input jack for channel 1.  Connect the speaker wires using the channel 1 positive output  for the positive speaker wire and the channel 2 positive output for the negative speaker wire.

Tell her that its been a decent run, and that you wish her well.

Oh, wait. You meant one subwoofer has to go, didn't you? Never mind.
