Amplifier: First Watt F1J (Pass upgraded F1), 10 whopping watts per channel from the kitchen table of Nelson Pass,

or sometimes...

Dynaco Stereo 70 with the VTA input board. After many years of dislike of this driver board, I FINALLY discovered that a 6SN7 (via adapter) in place of the center "gain" 12AU7 gave me an amp I could enjoy.

A Dynaco SCA-35 with bypassed tone controls and Dave Gillespie's EFB™ bias mod.

Preamplifier (or None if Integrated): "The Truth" line-stage by The Horn Shoppe, Vorhis Last PAS, Audio Research SP3A-1, and a (mostly stock) Dynaco PAS
Speakers: Horn Shoppe Horns - The first speaker that's made me happy in many years.

CD Player/DAC: Marantz CD 6006
Turntable/Phono Stage: Roksan Xerxes X w/Attessa Att-DS5 power supply, Rega RB-900, Denon 103R and Dynavector DV-20-XL.

PS Audio Stellar phono stage

Second Phono stage is the 12AX7 based board in the Vorhis preamp.

Maplenoll air-bearing TT & Technics 110A (DD) w/JH Formula 4 arm, both in mothballs at the moment.
Other Source(s): McIntosh MR-78 tuner w/MI-3 scope,

Yamaha T-80 tuner, Onkyo T-4210 tuner, and a Radio Shack TM-102 mini-tuner, Sony XDR-F1HD.

Also a Marantz 105 tuner, and 3 Dynaco FM-3 tuners. Ok, I'll admit it. I have a fascination with/addiction to tuners.
