    Please help me choose a tube amp

    Whilst in the states try getting a listen to some Usher Dancer Mini 2 diamond DMDs or possibly their bigger cousins the BE10 or 20. I have the Dancer 2s and for me they do it all, deep, tight bass, delicate detail, great mids, and speed.

    Measurements, Compatibility and Ears 👂

    I do 95% of my online viewing via my phone so is a pain keep going back to 2 channel page, so use the next unread link below end of threads. Then have to scroll to end of unwanted thread for the next. If I don't then it will come up again as there are more pages/comments unread. Having an ignore button that works like ignore person would mean removing it permanently from the next unread list.

    Charity Sale - £415.25

    Not sure, didn't see it at the end so am guessing Bazzer must have shifted it on.

    2020 Spreadsheet Now Live

    I think I can claim that one. Woke at home 03:45 Saturday (my body doesn't recognise things like a day off) fell asleep about 03:00 Sunday morning, on a dining chair in front of my system and woke at 06:50 with a stiff neck. Finally got to see the room & bed I'd actually paid for at 23:30 Sunday night. Spent Monday and Tuesday wandering around like a stunned mullet. Still looking at the boxes with my kit in and thinking sod it I will deal with that tomorrow.

    New Cartridge suggestion for Rega RP8 (RB808 arm)

    Another cart although very new that's getting rave reviews is the Hana ML. And I see no reason having built the excellent and well regarded E & S ranges Hana would have produced an absolute dog in the ML. There are a few loan examples out with dealers so might be worth seeing if you can get on the audition list locally.

    New Cartridge suggestion for Rega RP8 (RB808 arm)

    +1 for the Hana SL, HOWEVER make sure your phono can load it properly. Whilst it sounds very good at the std 100ohm most fixed value MC stages give, it really takes flight when given the recommended 400+ ohms. Opening up across the whole frequency spectrum and giving greater delicacy and air.

    Floor stander Virgin

    Several pairs in the classifieds. Here's just 2 examples A bit over budget but we'll worth considering.
