nopes! what's the company making it? listen to the lyrita first! the 2A3 tube in the SET amp is a really good tube. i hope you know that different tubes themselves have different sounds? am glad to confuse the issue even further

Re: T.A.C.-834 tube amp - anyone heard this, or heard about this?

thanks. I was at Viren's place last to last week and have posted my impressions. I really liked the system and would purchase it as and when money allows it.
It seems I would have to junk my current speakers and get a complete setup from Viren, to get the max out of his system.

regards

thanks unleah - have seen these but couldn't find any reviews. Maybe the people who buy them are too busy to post a review

Re: T.A.C.-834 tube amp - anyone heard this, or heard about this?

Its not just the 91dB thats suspect, its also the power rating. That seems way on the higher side if they are running the tubes that hot your tube life will be reduced, you might have a high maintenance amp on your hands.

cheers

I would look at 375-400V on the plate, and about 50-60mA operating current. Should be right in the 20-22 watt range, and much lower than the max plate current of 140mA. This will not be detrimental to tube life, hopefully. Not too different from manufacturers who put 10A devices into a 100 watt amplifer, not very nice, is that?
