    So, you are saying that 4 ohm fixed sounds better than 1 o’clock?

    No dedicated line, but using Torus rm20 power conditioner.

    Yoshi, what is the advantage of fixing the tweeter at 4 ohms rather than turning the Brilliance dial to 1 o’clock?

    I am using Lumin X1 streamer/DAC and Pass x350.5 direct.

    DO you get sibilance with Joni on vinyl? I will try some toeing in. The ultimate sibilance test is Diana Krall on streaming, Quora or Tidal.

    I replaced the bias supply on one back plate that was blowing fuses and it works very well. But, I noticed that the other panel some times goes quieter than the other and sometimes refuses to crackle no matter the gain. So, I replaced the bias supply for that one too, and now everything is good again.Roger tells me that this is the first failure of the regulated bias that he has been using for the past several years.

    How did you measure the resistance?

    How much did the 560 panel cost?

    Wow, I am impressed with your loyalty to your Pristine 2. Why didn’t you just upgrade to new ones? Cost?

    Which model SL do you have? It sounds like an older model.

    If you know how to solder, it is a piece of cake. Unfortunately, I don’t know how to solder. I paid someone $85 to solder the 6 wires. A new bias supply will run you $295.

    There are some VTL amps on Hifishark, from MB450 to 30 year old 225s. You hinted that VTLs are less reliable than Atma Sphere. In what way?

    I heard from an owner of 225s that he hadn’t had any troubles. Shipping these 100 mono’s back to the factory would be a hassle.

    lotus123, good point. Another amp that is interesting to me is Carver 350 tube amp. Anyone hear them with SL?

    @Loudspeaker7, are you using the BHK preamp to go with your BHK 300? Do you recommend this pairing?

    @rluciano and Louderspeaker 7,

    I am seriously considering PS BHK 300 mono’s. One comment that I heard was that it is lacking clarity in the high end.

    1. do you think this is true?
    2. Can this be remedied with tube rolling?
    3. Why are there so many BHK300 on the used market?
