Ok, since this amp has some possibilities given the price, I figured why not try out a 'new and improved' power supply? I went from a switching supply to a linear supply, and this is the same except for better specs. It is a tongue in cheek idea, but I like to experiment so here goes. A shot of the regulator that may be used in the new power supply:

Great to see that this ultimate version is making it across the finish line!

Steve, does the tube set also include the new tube pin tool? That would be nice to have in the custom made box  :)

Iíve posted at length about the effect that the ZR2 has had on my sysytem so Iíll try not to repeat myself.  My speakers are the Omega S3HOXRS, 45-20kHz I believe with a pair of 4.5Ē drivers.  After the ZR2 I have no desire to add a sub.  In fact a couple of friends have asked if the speakers have a built in sub after listening to the system.

In my experience Iíve come to the conclusion that subs are used to add bass headroom or to extend down to 20hz for the few instruments that go down that far.  If itís bass headroom youíre looking for add the ZR2.

If itís more bass extension, then get speakers that go down that far and add the ZR2.  When it comes to bass usually theres quite a roll off so that what you think youíre going to get based on numbers doesít correlate with what you hear.  Then thereís also the effect that the room and our hearing has on what bass we hear.  The ZR2 shines in those areas, at least it has for me.

Iíve spent a lot of money over the years trying to get past this, the ZR2 was the answer.  The money one saves can be better spent upstream thereby further improving the bass that you hear, for that matter everything you hear.

Thatís my opinion for what itís worth.

You know when you hear a recording of your're own voice you're always shocked because it doesn't sound like that in your head †This album to me sounds like what it must have sounded like inside Lenord Cohen's head. †It would never sound like that in a concert but man what a voice.

A few nice LP's last evening! Zen sounding so good. I can't imagine how good the new UFO25 will sound.
