SET amp owners thread

Just requesting all SET amp owners to mention their amps and speakers.

It's always best to have a safety earth ground, especially on tube amps where there is high voltage present. If the ground-loop causes noise, this isolator usually solves the problem:

I use them for my SET monoblocks that have 1000V on the output tubes. They also convert balanced to single-ended for me. No degradation in SQ, in fact they improve things quite a bit. Thanks to these, I don't have any ground-loops in my system.

Does anybody know what's under 2nd cover at Lamm ML3 on the photo?
1st covers output transformer obviously.
Power supply has 2 chokes, power trafo and some caps which can be identified from the Lamm website photos.

You assume everyone here welcome everyone? One might be a serial killer.

Well it is easy to validate a genuine person. A serial killer will not be able to chat with you in details about cartridges or TTs. An audiophile is pschyo enough on one front to be psycho on another.

ps: I was about to write "A serial killer will not be able to chat with you in detail about cartridges or TTs or recordings", but then edited

A genuine serial killer wouldn’t survive an audiophile meeting...

Hi Redcars,
Your post was great, apologies, just probably got caught up in some banter but I liked your post (I literally liked it as well). Would love to know more.
Best wishes
