Joe,
Oakwood, GA is one of my favorite places, usually stay at the Comfort Inn and eat at the B_B_Q place behind the purple building whe attending Road Atlanta races.
I have a Mitsubishi TV Model CS-27200 and I want to hear the sound through head phones but I can find no place to plug them in. Do you have any ideas? Thank you.

TY Art,
Ralph, I am not sure if that is a REAL question or if you are messing with me. By the way, it seems as if you are describing Braselton, which is the town that Road Atlanta is in. Unless it's Sonny's you are talking about?

Do a search on Jolida tube amps. You'll get an idea of how much it will cost you to get one.

Their pure tube amps (not their hybrid models) are ridiculously priced. Around 1-3k with a 6k system somewhere in their current lineup. I would rather have a good solid state amp, haha.

You'd be surprised at how much money people can throw at their gear.

Definitely! That's one of the reasons why I just am not into home audio very much. The gear is ridiculous, some good B&W speakers paired with a nice receiver or components is the most I would ever care to spend on a home theater system. I would rather spend my money on something else after that point :-) New car, anyone? haha

Well, my wife went to Italy and bought us a nice Sonus Faber Cremona set up. I didn't think it was ridiculous at all.

Love the Jolida- if you want to do tubes on a budget, go for a '60's Fischer, Scott, or Harmon amp. You can usually pick them up on Ebay for a couple of hundred. Great for pure, two channel listening. The imaging is incredible. I discovered this when I bought an old console stereo that I was going to gut and replace with newer components. It had a Fischer 800-B tube receiver in it, and I decided to try it out to see what it sounded like. It blew my mind- I researched the tube vs. solid state thing and found that there is a huge contingency for tube amps. I listened to it for five years while my new Sony collected dust. I'm sad to say that it was stolen, so I replaced it about 4 years ago with a Scott LK-48b integrated amp that I run through homemade speakers. If you haven't tried tubes, try an old amp- you won't regret it.

Wow, you guys revived my absolutely dead post. kudos I have a few changes since all this. I put in power cables on the Jolida and Audioquest diamondback interconnects between it and the new denon 2910. Also switched out the mains for JBL towers and upgraded the power conditioner. Thanks for all the kind words and reviving my room.

I sure would like to hear those tube amps. I have been debating what to do with the master bedroom system and a simple two channel solution sure is tempting. I also like the DVD player choice.

Where are the pictures of the JBL's????

P.S. Your photo reminds me I need to get back on my bicycle after the holidays. Too much Christmas cheer!!!!

Happy Holidays and enjoy the new equipment.

The tube amp looks nice and its specs are GREAT, but the reason why industry went from tube amps to current technologies is because of heat, power, and reliability. It's just nonsense to do tube amps (although they look nice) when you can get longer life and reliability with the not so old newer IC version. You can also make a pseudo version of the tube amp for the looks without the cost!

In my opinion, tube amps are like LP's and needles, yes they may offer the "original" sound, but why do you want it? Anyway just my two cents worth and to help keep this old post going

Some speakers are famous for their sound using tube amps. JBL's are one of them. I agree that tube amps produce a lot of heat and have reliability issues but some of the newer products on the market combine the sound of tube amp and the relability and low distortion of SS components. Some people like all the tweaking of tubes. It does get old but again, some of the newer solutions have greatly improved on this area. Heat? Well, that is argueable. I have a class A Technics in the bedroom now after the Harman Kardon tube receiver finally died and it generates more heat than the tube amp/reciever ever did!

Now I have not heard some of the newer gear being designed and sold but it is intriguing when you read the specs.

Solid State can sound incredible but for some people it is a sound that is hard to adapt to. The clarity and lack of roll off can be emphatic with some speaker designs like JBL's compression drivers.

Are tubes and the analog world for everyone? Probably not and a speaker with high sensitivity would be a minimum requirement IMO. But, unless you take the plunge, you will never know what combination sounds best to you.

Happy Holidays!

FYI, the tubes are running a pair of Totem Rainmakers, the denon runs JBL towers that have replaced the JBL books shown above. No comparison for pure musical detail versus the two speakers. Totem rules!!!
