A little over a year ago I purchased a used pair of 70'2, (non LFP-V) and just about this time last year Vinnie upgraded those with LFP-V tube technology. The Lilliana's just came out, but i opted for the upgrade to save a couple $k. I've was pleased, to say the least. So much so, that I purchased the Isabella right after. So much for the savings.
Anyway, about a month ago, I came across a great deal for an Esoteric X-01, back to digital, for now... When I posted here back then regarding tube rolling recommendations, Vinnie gave me excellent advice, listen first for a while, then roll. Thank you for that advice, I did listen, and listen, and listen.
Ok, a year later, well over the 100 hours break in, probably twice or thrice that, and then some. As I read through this thread of tube rolling advice, thank you all, thank you Vinnie, I am considering the Miniwatt Dario E188CC/7308, gold. Found 4 available at Upscale Audio (ouch!). So I am considering buying two. Question is, does it make sense to buy two more? The Isabella takes two and one each for the 70.2's (I think).
My gut instinct says, plug the Dario's into the Isabella and let the amps ride with stock... Tube roll Preamp, Amp, both?? Any suggestions, recommendations, experience. Thanks in advance.
Cheers and Happy Holiday's to all,
