There’s a fair amount of ‘discussion ‘ about a new line from Japan...
This line is the CS port line....see here: www.csport.audio

The company has an amp that features the 212E triode tube and a turntable that features an air bearing arm.
The 212E triode tube is a huge tube....and one that I would suspect would be highly susceptible to microphonics. (Unfortunately like so many of the large tubes that are so popular in the SET world right now!:eek::(. )

Although the design of these amps seems to place a shield/cage around the tube...possibly to shield it from unwanted attention and the aforementioned microphonics.

Anyhow, one of my Japanese a’phile friends swears by this gear..and tells me it is at the pinnacle of the art.

Anyone else heard it?

Might be an option for driving a new pair of Pendragons......:rolleyes:

reading on the web site:

Switching power supply and analog power supply

It is no exaggeration .................................. From there, it produces a sound like a clear stream of the Alp
s.

every weekend I see one going skiing, I did not know they were so famous even in the Far East. ;)
LOL, I’m not writing their press, but if I was, I’m not sure I could surpass that kind of hyperbole :D

That Google Translate has got to be The Bard, William Shakespeare.
