Excellent. I'm now listening to Musical Paradise's 301 Series MK1...tubes are sweet. Transparency on the M22's best I've heard. Just rolled from the 6V6's to the EL34-B's. Nice difference.

I know that this is not hi-end gear, but I'm a bang for the buck kinda guy. That's why I like my Axioms - both vintage & new.

This amp does get some very nice user reviews so it is a nice way to get into tube hi-fi without breaking the bank...

Congrats Tom, I really like the looks of that amp and will be curious of your impression.

2x6:

Sorry I didn't answer your question ref my CDP.

Mine is nothing special. It's a 10 year old Sony 5 Disc Changer that is still running strongly & still sounds good to me on my vintage AX2s & Velo Sub. It'll be interesting to hear it through vacuum tubes (or valves as they say across the pond).

When it finally dies I'll look at something that is perhaps more upscale before CDPs are no more...

Nice to hear from you! I'm totally with you on the bang for the audio buck philosophy. I've picked up many older very high quality components for a song. It's also why I love my Axioms (and Michauras)

I hope your new set up brings you a lot of enjoyment!!!

My 'tube heaven' may not be the nirvana that I thought it would be.

I forwarded the ebay listing to my adult daughter. Her reaction - What is it? What are all of those things sticking out of it?

Then my wife - What is it? How big is it? Where is it going to go? It's ugly...

Beauty is in the eye of the male beholder I guess. I see some upcoming conflict in my life...

I am very lucky that my wife likes my tube amp. The first time she saw it she did not know what it was but thought it was cool. I do however irritate her with some other hobbies that I have (buying socks being one of them).
