    Default Anthem Amp 1

    Going to run this one on the Spendors, and POSSIBLY hook Troy up with the CJ MV-75.

    Push-pull EL34, 12AX7 driver, 2 x 12AU7 Phase Splitters.

    Upgraded the stock Multi-caps with Jensen Pure Copper Foil caps (silver cans next to each EL34).

    Cheers,
    Russ

    Trust me, it will last a LONG time.

    Getting tired of chasing my tail, upgrade upgrade upgrade. That's why I didn't hesitate about selling the 3 Jeff Rowland peices. I'm ready to just sit back and enjoy what I have.

    All three main rigs are nearing completion.

    Cheers,

    Russ,

    Good to hear. According to one of our bretheren here , and many other Spendor owners - tubes is a match made in heaven for em.

    Scott N. just sent me his Tube Dac +... got in the amc cd8b as a transport.... that rig is pretty much a done deal.

    Good feeling isn't it ?

    I wouldn't run anything BUT tubes on the Spendors. Nothing but the best I have for those babes.

    One of CD8b's started acting up last week, so I'll need a new transport for another rig. Right now have a Panny DVD in place temporarily.

    Cheers,
    Russ

    Here's where I have it slid in right now - I've got the SRS's and Spendors crammed in one room while we sell the house.

    Melos SHA-1 Tube Line / Headphone Amp
    AMC CD8b Transport
    Assemblage DAC 1
    Anthem Amp 1 Tube Amp
    (Conrad Johnson Sonographe on the bottom for the SRS 2's)

    Cheers,

    Default Looking good Russ

    About the Cd8b - bummer.

    Looking great Russ - no short-cuts anywhere in that system. Thats how it should be. Congrats.

    Kick ass, Russ! Very cool looking amp. Are those Electro Harmonix EL34EH I see in there? Let us know how it sounds on the Spendors. What's the power output?

    Noticed you have your Melos and Anthem naked. Do you always keep the covers off? I think I should do that on the GTA. Removing and inserting 10 screws just to tube swap is a pain in the ass.

    Enjoy the new amp.

    I just keep 4 screws, out of the 14, in the lid of my Cary, that way it's not so much of a hassle for removal.

    Gotta be careful effing with them if you've got the lid off and the power on, they bite. Right Tour???

    No, I don't KEEP the covers off - I do what Mark does - just a couple screws, keep the rest in a little crack baggie, and labled accordingly.

    40 watts continuous, per channel on the Anthem. If you want to slap 12BH7's in, in place of the 12AU7's - and roll some KT-77's in, instead of the EL34's - you can kick it up to 50-52 wpc.

    Yes, quad of EH, won't be in there for long. RCA cleartops, and a Smoothplate on the front end.

    Maurice, I have some 6DJ8/6922 singles I don't know what to do with! Confirm your addy with me via email, and I'll hook you up. You're the only mofo on the planet (that I know), who only needs singles.

    Troy, no **** - thank God he was only messing with a preamp. That amp has enough voltage to stop your heart - like THAT (snapped my finger).

    Cheers,
    Russ

    Just tingled a tad... barely noticed it...

    Looking good, Russ. Hadn't heard of Assemblage, but I see they're made by Sonic Frontiers... a keeper?

    Russ,

    I'm curious to hear your thoughs on the Amp 1. I just picked up an MCA2 to go with a Pre 2L but I'm not 100% confident with the combo. I'm tempted towards an AMP 1 here locally which is a rare occurance for anything used.

    Paul, we REALLY have to pay each other a visit one day. You here, me there.

    Put us in a room with some Spendors and plenty of tubes, they may never see us again.
