    VTA 70 with new k40ys

    Finished installing the russian pios last light. Listened this morning and they sound great after only 10 hrs. breakin. Much better than the sonicap gen 1 I had in there. The gen 2s are much better.
    The amp below is an almost new dynaclone I purchased on Ebay 2 1/2 years ago. Was supposed to be plug and play but wasn't, kept blowing fuses. The grid stop resistors were wired in reverse on one side and there were 3 bad solder joints. Still worth the effort as I got a decent deal.
    I did a partial rewire, and although it looks kinda sloppy the amp is dead quiet and sounds great.

    Speakers-Psb B25 (these are surprisingly excellent!)
    Vta 70-Mullard 4024s and Tung Sol reissue EL34B (these sound at least as good as my JJ kt77s)
