Here is a quote from his latest e-mail, previously he had been talking of experimenting with new rf parts that he was thinking of using from his radio hobby:

Love his enthusiasm!

Scheduled delivery for me is next Friday. Takes a bit longer to get up to Alaska.

So pay up! You might still get yours in sync.

Maybe not. The Inspire is my first SE amp. I have a conrad-johnson and had other c-j, gone now. Would be interesting if someone else made the same choice!

Oh well, I'm sure the numbers are still very limited in all colours. Interested in what kind of tweaks from his Box of parts made it into your amp.... Cant wait to hear that my little 6v6 is making music.... Never had so much fun with ordering an amp! I'll have to learn how to post pics once I've got an update.

Yes, his enthusiasm is contagious, and is what makes this so much fun!!

I just received my nightly e-mail from Dennis, I paid up and he says it will ship out on Monday. I'm in Pennsylvania, much closer to NC than Alaska, so maybe mine will still arrive by Friday too!! LOL! I do hope it will be here next week. The wife will be surprised!! :faint:

Tonight's e-mail was mostly about basketball, as Dennis and his wife are very excited about the progress of NC State in the ACC tourney. They've been fans for 30 years now.

He did mention that recent owners of a KT88 and KT 66 sent him e-mails of love. He also mentioned that the KT88 owner said:


I have the KT88's in your amp as it is running now full steam ahead in my home listening room. I want one of dem dar blue amrafriers. :crowd:

Here's the amp I all ready have:


Peter, those two units are gonna look AWESOME together!! I love it! I'd consider the preamp, but I really like having the phono stage and preamp in one box (SLP-98P).

Before deciding to buy Dennis' amp, I was actually considering moving to an integrated amp. I've done that whole separates thing to death. Two chassis phono stages, two chassis preamps, monoblock amps, etc....I'm trying to reduce some clutter now, not add. Though if this amp sounds great, and Dennis ever decides to do monoblocks.....I may be tempted. :naughty:

How are you guys contacting Dennis? I need a Phono amp to pair with my SLI-80.

pstrisik 03-15-2014 05:35 PM

Dennis said I could give out his email, though I won't post it publicly on the forum. Either PM me on audiocircle or avsforum (username: pstrisik) or post a way for me to contact you and I'll pass it on. You can also contact him through his eBay account.

Er was Joe the Dennis Hopper wiry fellow I just passed in the hallway who insisted he's talkin' the way he is becuz he just spent 5 minutes on the phone with Dennis Had, and now he's "all pumped up!" :banana:

That infectious energy is contagious stuff ya know. :D

Hello all. Having recently been searching for a new SET integrated, and then later having a chance discovery of DH's Inspire products, and after having bought both the Inspire KT88, and the 6V6, and the LS2, and finally having read every word of this thread...I have to ask - how'd I get here? :)

At any rate - greeting's from Seattle!

Looks like several of you have had the same conversation with DH that I had.


Coltrane1 03-16-2014 03:11 PM

So, I'm searching for web info on DH's Inspire amps, and next thing I know I discover this thread and a whole new audio forum.

Btw...I love the red and blue chassis treatments...nice touch guys! The Jaguar red reminds me of a Melody integrated I recently viewed. So, has anyone here actually heard an Inspire product? :)

Greeting's all from Seattle - Oh and it's raining! :)

Welcome from Anchorage - Oh and it's snowing! :) (got 8" yesterday)

As you've found, no website. The best info is Dennis' eBay listings - search for listings by radioman731 and click on the "sold" checkbox on the left to see all his variations on amps so far - or from Dennis himself.
