Here's a nice pic of the new DeVore 0/96 Orangutan. That's 96db! Sensitive enough to make low powered amps scream! There will likely be a 0/93 version as well which I will be getting in ASAP.
Charlie Louvin died from pancreatic cancer yesterday. He was 83.
That's right folks! The beautiful Leben RS-30EQ moving magnet phono pre is on the floor. As with many Leben products, these are usually spoken for before they're built! No mass production here! All hand soldered point to point... and that new Leben smell? MMM! Nothing like it! Reminds be of sniffing those mimeograph worksheets in middle school back in the 80's.
Got some more booze for the shop! Texas made Enchanted Rock Vodka! Centenario 100% Agave has got to be the smoothest Anejo Tequila I've ever had. Made for sippin'! No training wheels needed. Makers Mark... crucial.
The black Rega DAC I had flew out the door, so I got in a silver one. There aren't many pics on the net of it in Silver, so here you go..
Here's the new Dynavector 20X2-H (H is for high output moving coil. Also available in a low output). I just put her on the Rega P5 turntable. Playing through the LFD phono pre amp which is made specifically for high output moving coils. In a word... stunning!
Olive is our Blue Lacy, The State Dog Of Texas!! She's actually quite sweet. The kids were probably tormenting her.
