I think I'll knock up a mono amp with a vt4c ( I have a few), just to see. Looks will help and one thoriated valve appeals.... one speaker, H...

Serendipidy

Lovely word but.... For reasons that aren't important I've been lissnin' to mono recordings through only one speaker. Fascinating, clear, different, sharp and very interesting. So much so that switching over to stereo it is very enjoyable but mono/ single source ( rather than two source mono) is, we...
