As a reminder, even though MoT's is a free site, we do rely on two methods lights on. One is a referral generator that creates (mostly) unobtrusive links. This depends on the site being whitelisted in any ad-blocking software you use. If you could please whitelist this site, we would be ever thankful. (We promise there are no pop-ups, pop-unders or other annoying distractions.)
The other method is donations from members and visitors. These are completely voluntary and there is no obligation. Any donations go directly towards site operations and are greatly appreciated. Click here to donate today.

Here my Fostex HP-V1 portable tube amp all fired up:
Here a photo of the Teclast T51 on top:
I have always been a big fan of the richness and natural warmth of tube sound, a large soundstage, and balanced sound. This setup surprisingly delivers. I get about 7-8 hours per charge with the Fostex and about 11 from the T51.
The Teclast is one of the best portable DAP’s I have heard...the sound clarity is incredible with dual Wolfson WM8740 DACs and either a OPA2604 burr-brown opamp for driving its dedicated line out or a dedicated Philips NXP chip for the headphone out. The combo will drive just about any headphones with grace.
The week sucked...but Ahhhhh....it has been a good day.

We have been using a pair of his hand me down NTH super zeros, SW200 subwoofer and MA-1 amp since we got married. I remember him being so excited about them in the mid 90's, especially for the price. After our son started crawling around they had to come off of the speaker stands and you wouldn't want to know where they are or how close to the wall. Every time I think about putting them back on the stands and out where they should be I see a kid something fly by out of the corner of my eye .
Wow. I just looked and can't believe how inexpensive the speakers themselves are. I don't need to go down another rabbit hole.

Current set-up is just a couple of Chinese IEM's: TRN BA5's and Shuoer TAPE's.
Realised as time went by that it became impossible to keep up with advances in the industry (kind of like smartphones) and lost free time as I got older.
