Sadly, Don Garber, founder of the influential electronics company Fi passed away on June 4th, following a brief illness. He was 81.

Sadly Don passed away in June 2017...not this past year. He was an amazing person and great Audio innovator.

Yes very sad...

Do you play vinyl through it ?

That sounds a great choice..

I switched to a Hana SL cartridge from Clearaudio Maestro....it is perfect for jazz.....

Wow! What a gem!!! What do you play it through? Perhaps there should be a hi fi section in the features group?

I have Linn Majik speakers Burson Virtuoso headphone amp + timekeeper amp fed by a Linn Sneaky DAC. I would get higher end system but I have cathedral ceilings (lots of dead spaces and reflections) so I do most of my listening through my Grado 2000’s. ...  

I’m not the least bit surprised you spend more time with the headphones on…

Hard flat walls, glass, exposed floor – get yourself some aesthetically pleasing sound treatment, and wrap (and fill, if not already) those stands.

beautiful ...

300B, 2A3? The Vibrapods doing their job. Thanks for sharing. Vte

tubes are.....

2a3...have had many 300b integrated amps...when I finally heard 2a3 my whole thinking changed. I use this and also have a Triode Lab FFX integrated.......about 4.5 watts per channel....plenty.

Back in the '90s, Cary produced a push-pull 2A3 amp . . .

. . . that outputted ~ 20 watts per channel, if memory serves correct. Then, it disappeared. 300B's are still in production by a few vendors; don't know of any 2A3 makers. Are you reliant on NOS tubes? Art

Hi Doc.

There are still some options out there. You have: Whammerdyme, Thomas Mayer, Trafomatic Audio, Opera Consonance, Puresound, Triode Labs, Yaqin and some other chinese amps, and of course the DIY projects. Probably there are a few more, but I don't know the... 

Looks great I have no idea what I looking at 😏
