Thanks Jeff for the history.  It's very encouraging for me that the Rachael sounded better than you more expensive gear.  I have no doubt it would improve the sound over my solid state amp that my csp2 is driving now.  Still thinking hard on this one.

I love reading this discussion, especially the surprise of revelation from the modest Rachael, which I have not had the pleasure to hear myself. I view this amp as one headphone socket away from perfection as a single chassis source selector and power unit, particularly in cong 4 or 5. In config 1, she could be a very good center channel mono amp in an HT setup, especially as the EL34/6CA7 could probably more easily be tuned to characteristics of a couple of Toriis. Depending on what I do with my center channel, I may decide to swap my SE84ZS out for a config 1.

And I love the jazz appreciation. Last night, after dropping my daughter's friend off, we listened to the R-men on the way home. She is 17, and she commented that she likes the sound of jazz at night. She got there hearing Decware at home at night.

I got my Rachel yesterday and straight out of the box I am pretty blown away.  It actually sounds better than what I heard at Zenfest.  

I would like a little more volume on some music, but I am currently in a 18 X 14 room and my (current) main speakers are 89db.  Thus my question about the pre boosting the volume a bit.  I don't think I need too much.

I'm excited about the prospect of this amp (and the interconnects) breaking in.

Yeah Palerider,  one of my 2 boys, a 10yr old, gets pissy when the house is noisy when he does it home work. must have gotten what book worm he has in him from his mother because it tweren't from me.  :)  anyways, since i've been playing a lot of my APO blue notes this past year, he now doesn't beef at all when I put it on while he's working.   Doing my part to foster another generation of jazz enthusiast's.

Speaking of jazz,  when I do determine which Decware amp is for me, the very first disc I'll spin is for sure going to be  Ike Quebec's  Bossa Nova Soul Samba.  Man I can't wait to hear that in a total tube system.  sigh...

Two LP's spinning here last night that haven't been played in a while were

"Bags meets Wes! Milt Jackson and Wes Montgomery w/ Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones and Philly Joe Jones" on Riverside

and

"Frank Morgan and The McCoy Tyner Trio Major Changes"

Sounding very good, almost all tube system: CSP2+ with an added stereo/mono switch and the SE34I.3, phono stage is a Heed Quasar

Nice Jeff.   I have that Bags Meets Wes in Sacd format.  I'll bet the vinyl is even better.

Hi JeffS,

Thanks for sharing your experience.

I was literally one click away from ordering the Coincident Franks and preamp when I saw your post.
Guess I'll wait for the latest Torii Zen Mk 4 to be released before I splurge again on my next sonic upgrade.
