Phil,

You have a great looking listening room and setup. The chair looks like it's just waiting on someone to sit down and enjoy the music. Very nice!

Thanks Terry. The chair is kinda old, since 1991, and it's very comfortable.

Thanks for sharing with us, how would you describe the sound of your tube amp (I'm not well versed in tube amps)

My pleasure, JL John.

The sound, with the new KT88 tubes, is quite extended on the highs and lows, and the midrange is full bodied and has a little bloom. The model VS115 is one year old though the tubes are only a few weeks old and I'm still burning them in. I'll let you know more as it progresses. But right now, I'm quite satisfied with its performance.

I really, REALLY like the shots of the turntable. They're very inviting and make me want to play records. That's an unusual (to me) tonearm. What are the advantages of having that one over something more conventional?

Glad you like them, prepress. The tonearm is a linear tracking air-bearing tonearm. Linear trackers are said to trace the grooves in the manner the master lacquers were cut, thereby reducing tracking error, and there is no anti-skate to worry about. Of course there are many who feel there are other disadvantages of this design, so to each his own. The air bearing makes the arm wand trace without friction, which is present in pivoted tonearms. Bruce Thigpen, the designer of this tonearm, believes in these advantages and hence the product was produced.
