    Are there any AR pre owners with SET amps, especially with horn speakers?
    Audition recordings: Zero Distortion Link; Reference Components: Zero Distortion Link; Own: Lampi GG One-day-to-get: Apogee Scintilla, or a horn (with Tenor 75 OTL ), Preamp to be fit in to suit the gain and drive the power amp. Analog: TBD

    Now that the 70's production DR's have had a few hours to bed in I am hugely impressed with the all round performance gains the NOS valves have brought to the output stage of this REF10, especially when considering its mere 200 hours on the clock.
