Aw, thanks! I actually go a chance to demo the NX-Ottica tower with triple OB subs at Danny's recently and I'd say they give the Super 7's a run for their money. If you're building the MTM version on top of the dual subs, I think you will be very satisfied. We drove Danny's setup using my 8 watt 300b amp and it sounded amazing.
Yes that's the plan, I have the Super 7 cabinet waiting for painting, and will use it for the MTM until some New Neo 10 comes out.
I am hesitant, to get into tube just now, because I know I'll get addicted and wear my tubes all day long, but I am thinking that if the Burson Composer 3X DAC manages the preamp part quite well, I can spare the money of the preamp, and have a tube amp setup on the side for more serious listening sessions, and swap back to a Classe A A/B when I am done.
I know you are all about good tube amps, and I can only confirm that's the best.
I was thinking about this guy at around 700USD, and swap tubes - I am not sure I will have the patience to build an Elekit.
