So many exciting things have been progressing here at the shop! I’m not sure where to start. I’ve been neglecting the blog in favor of Facebook because I got lazy. Sorry about that. I didn’t know anyone actually read this thing until I stopped doing a weekly Hi-Fi Honey and folks got upset! So why am I sitting in bed writing this at 5:30am? One, because I’m old and two, because I can’t wait to get this new amp in!
The 508 is the newest integrated from Line Magnetic. It uses 805 tubes for power, 300B for driver stage and 6SN7 for the pre amp. It’s got a bit more grunt than the 518 at around 47 watts. I think it will play nicely with many speakers. The VU meters double as bias meters and it will come in black.
