The concept of using 27 tubes for preamplifer was not new as I have heard it almost 3 years go. Unfortunately, the commercial version was not out in the market yet. Recently, there was quite a lot of news of the 27 Preamplifier in the news and there is a shop in Mongkok selling the 27 preamplifier at very reasonable price HK$3500 for a finished product and HK$800 for the kit set.
Not sure of the sound yet..will check it out soon! Stay tuned!

The responses for the the PLL was overwhelming and I have decided to cut love my Nagra PLL to a fellow audiophile.
My search for the PLP will be an exciting one as I shall be getting it direct from Switzerland ... : )
In the mean time, I am using my Western Electric 124b direct from CD to amplifiers to Speakers without any pre-amplifier.
According to my Taiwanese audiophile friends and from the audiophile Mr Huang whio has cut love his spare set of WE124b to me, they love to use the Western ELectric 124b gears without any pre-amplifiers as they find the sound most natural! They have compared it with using classic preamplifier such as the Marantz 7 and Fisher 400CX..
The search is on...

With my recent change of job and the recent company acquisition of another company, I have been real busy with work.
I have not visited any hifi shop or attend any hifi party or participating in hifi forum for a while. Neverthess, I have been able to "steal" some time at night to listen to my favourite music with my current set up.
The essence of hifi is perhaps lies in the joy of listening to your favourite music..in peace and in full harmony...
