    Default Hittin' the Bottles

    Very stoked today... Hooked up my new arrival Yaqin MC 100B... The B must be for BAD Mutha Fu**a...

    No issues (thank you Song) plugged in the tubes, cables etc. and everything went according to plan.

    Listening quietly with my VR3 modded LSi 9's and this is a sweet package...the sound is very warm and precise, visually is very appealing to the eye. If Steve Irwin was here he would "Isn't she a beaut?"

    Can't wait for break in to be complete, as I can tell this baby will scream.

    My next addition will be a TT. I have been looking at some vintage stuff on F Mebay, but think i will go with Music Hall MMF 5.1.

    Here's a pic of the new addition.

    I haven't really pushed it, and probably will wait till I get 100 hrs or so in triode mode, but it seems very quiet, and smooth; I bypassed my sub and listening to CD's directly, and with everything flat (which is my preference any how) it seems to be well balanced, and I don't notice it lacking anything. Guitars sound good, Sax sounded great, and drums and cymbals all very lifelike.

    Quality wise the thing is built like a tank and is a heavy MF.

    You have the stock tubes in that bad boy or did you spring for some NOS ? Was looking at the Cayin a88t too, these units look very similiar, but the Cayin is way more coin. The Yaqin is a looker for sure.

    Stockers so far...will probably pop for tubes but these are not bad for Chinese Cheap. I think the 88's have a nice tight bass, and from what I read are probably the last tubes to roll

    Nice. I am looking at that model too. If it had a remote I would have already got it. Congrats.

    I rationalized the lack of remote by needing to go to the fridge and the toilet occasionally anyhow.

    Sweet! That is a good looking piece right there.

    How are you liking the fortress mods? Did I miss your review somewhere?

    EDIT: Found it :) Very nice review.

    Nice! I get better performance on my LSi9 in pentode or ultralinear on push pull tube amps. If you're still in triode mode, you might want to try the other.

    Sounds good. I think you'll like UL on the 9's. It will double your power and increase damping.
