845 valves in power amps

Dared 845 SETLast Wednesday the Melbourne Audio Club had a special meeting to demonstrate the Sound-Smith Strain Guage cartridge (http://www.sound-smith.com/cartridges/sg.html), and the equiment used to show it off was real high end stuff. The amplifiers were designed and built for Louis M by Lucas Cant, and used two 845 valves per monoblock.  Everything else about the amps was also cost size and weight no object, and they sounded really good.

The point of this post is that I came back to listen to the Dared 845 amp we have on demonstration. And it too sounded great.  A customer who also heard them amp even commented on how well it sounded, imaging well and a deep and wide sound stage.

We’ll have it as our reference tube amp for a while.
