The 17-minute version of "The man I love" was truly fitting - - that guy is my new hero. What a great movie! Though I think that even for the most ambitious of us, it was a bit like being in a primary-school ukelele band and hearing the Berliner Philharmonic for the first time.... Hardcore DIY porn.

I would guess this is a retired former worker from a valve factory.
He sure knows very well what he is doing.
This is hypnotizing.
Brilliant stuff! :thumbsup:

Hi.

Why? For home audio, tube looks & sounds far superior to sand devices..
