If you have to ask, I almost guarantee it's too pricey. I think something in the $5-7k range~

Well, in the meantime, you could always pick up a set of these, and see what you think.
Just let me know what credit card you want them put on. 8)

well let me see 5,000 or 20,000 that seems like even money to me, if they are so good why you trying to sell them, oooh i get it you are being smart you see i don't need a tube amp i am in the next year or so looking for a really nice PRE-AMP. so when the ones that are advertised come into production i might be able to afford one, well maybe if i had your permission it seems

Re: Silver-1 Tube Preamp - !!! PROJECT ON HOLD !!!

Even if i could afford something like that i don't think my house is big enough. i am not jealous of too much i have lets see 1/ 800 monoblock, 1/ 500 monoblock, each side, 1/ 380 wpc*2 channels and a 250 wpc* 2 channels what is that 1900 some watts per side 2 speakers are 6 foot high and 4 foot wide and the others almost 25 inches (combined) of woofer and 18 inches(combined) midrange each side almost forgot and 20" of subwoofer i have played with the crossovers so the slopes don't interfere too much and i avoid almost all cancellation you normally have with multi speaker systems. so i really aint hurting for sound just moving toward the tube area to add and match the things i have that were made for tube equipment to be ran by tube equipment. anyway my wife would not let me buy those beauties even if i could afford them i do believe it is all insured for just under 15,000 so everything i got don't even touch what is on the table but mine sounds great also, but not perfect as i bet those do. you better get a stronger table looks like they have cracked yours already
