Re: KEL84 v KT88

Thanks everyone; much appreciated.

I was wondering if the KT88s would be better at handling transmission line speakers better than the KEL84s. (The IPL speakers I've got my eyes on are of lower...

Re: WDXRS Supertweeters

I think the PO have just tried to deliver my BatPures, but couldn't because there is £16.23 custom's tax to pay!
