Last week I received my first tube preamp and tube amp setup from Viren Bakhshi. The preamp is DHT pre with 4P1L tubes and the amp is DHT power with 45 tubes driving 2A3 in a SET config. The amp is sort of custom built for me with Hashimoto output transformers.

The combination sounds really nice. Sound is very clean, lots of dynamics, great mid and bass and very likeable stress free sound.

Currently the combo is driving an Altec 515b/288 pair and the front end is a EMT 938 turntable.

This is the first tube setup at home for me. So far I have been a Pass amp guy. Comparitively I must say, I am happy with both setups and to me they are nearly identical, particularly with Pass F6.

Special thanks to Viren for his brilliant build and Rajiv for his constant guidance and help in making this happen.

Having trouble uploading the pictures. Will do shortly.

Cheers

Congrats !!!

After the tube bug, I myself cannot think of going back to SS atleast for mid-treble. Its EL84 PP right now, and hope to hear soon what EL34 PP and 2A3 PP sound like driven by a DHT Re084 pre.

Tubes are great and Viren Bakhshi makes them affordable. Lyrita is very good.
