Box Of Crusty Antique Triodes

Jim Hunter Klipsch audio history museum curator picked these up at an auction. This is one of the best tube scores I've had in a while. There are 12 45 globes and a few 26, 27, 347,112, and various ancients.
 There were 5 testing strong and 1 weak with 7 showing no glowing filaments. Check out this radiotron!
 Check out the bases and the working blue Arcturus 27.

The bases were unreadable and I always wanted to do this. I took some white high gloss paint and wiped on then wiped off leaving the high gloss paint in the engraved bases. Beautiful...

Experience Music, Inc

Do you want some really cool triode amplifiers, preamplifiers, or large horns hand crafted? I think Experience Music might be the company to do it for you. It seems they do incredible custom work.
Here are some triode pron pics.

Passive Preamp

I hope to take a trip to Memphis to hear some of this great gear.

electronluv modern audio art

I am an stalker. The site has been vacant for a year or more. Last week I noticed a new site with links instead of a placeholder. It seems Josh has some new horns, a turntable, drivers, and many new goodies or at least audio porn. This is not for those of us light in the wallet. I don't see a problem charging large quantities of money for what electronluv creates because it some of the best art I have seen in years. For a tidy some of money you get fully functional sculptures which should go up in value over the years or at least that is my bet.

Go to and do some window shopping.
