Has anyone had any experience buying from them?

New headphone amp sounds great with a 6F8G as driver rather than a 6SN7.307A are the outputs http://www.eddiecurrent.com/Balancing_Act.html

Hopefully this (although it may not arrive until the new year)

Sad news....I now havea pair of very rare valves!
Posted September 17, 2009
Depends on what circuit they are in and how hard they are worked.
I've seen GZ34's (the metalbase ones) still test as new after many thousands of hours
Some of the newer Chinese rectifiers (Sophia 274B) have failed after only several hundred hours

I have one and IMO does sound smoother than other players in it's price range.I paid Â£4400 last year, less appealing at Â£7295

You sometimes see used new production WE's for sale on Audiogon
WE are restarting production of 300B's later this year

Has anyone had experience of either the meshplate version or the 300B-XLS from Emission Labs?

If the valve is an ECC81/82 and European made esp. Mullard/philips then 'flare up' on starting is normal

AVVT claimed 40,000 hrs for their 300B
I'm hoping these will last 3000 hrs,some Chinese 300B's barely last 1500hrs
I have a pair in a Woo Audio Wa5.
Only have about about 10-15hrs (they say 300hrs for burn in).I can only compare them to the standard Shuguang - they are smoother sounding with better deeper more controlled bass,sound needs to open up a bit more,hopefully more burn in will help.

I would go with the Earmax,warm and smooth

Is this an upgraded one or just standard?
Has anyone had experience of this two box phonostage?

if this is the same cdp (it's been a while) then i wasn't impressed with it when i heard it at a bake off - it utterly failed with electronica (was ok with classical tho if that's your bag). the designer brought it round and proceeded to blame the music, the production and anything else but his precious bit of kit, then got the hump and ignored me for the rest of the time. not the way to impress me and a symptom of why hi-fi is a dying hobby for an aging group. but that's a different rant.looks nice though.
looks nice though.
I like it with electronica.I preferred it to a two box Ensemble Drive and DAC which was more than twice as much
The CD77 weighs over 30KG

That was a bad valve.AMR told me at the time that out of over 400 CD77's sold worldwide mine had been the only one with a valve failure.A new output board was fitted and all valves were changed
The mechanical hum from the transformer was very minor,it took me three months to notice it.
BTW I bought mine at the old price
I've had great service from AMR.My CD77 had a slightly noisy transformer,even though it was within spec they came out and changed it and also put in the latest digital board.

I don't think the CD777 has a preamp

AMR CD77 and TW Acustic Raven One

It can make a big difference to your wallet

I have an Artemis Labs PH-1,was Â£2000 in 2006.Pretty good but there's the added cost of tube rolling.
If you have alot of space (and money) AMR have a phonostage out next year.The Tron Nine is due towards the end of next year
Pic is only displaying how the units look with valves in place not when it's operating
My Fujiwill havethe silver weight included
Those are WE 323A rectifiers in that pic
