MARANTZ / ROWLAND: Classic 9 + Rowland Coherence, hot pins on XLR connectors.

Can I use other tubes than the EL34s on the Marantz 9s? The amps themselves and the manuals are marked with those specific tubes. So I don’t know if tube rolling would create problems.

Examples of legendary audio equipment

I’m interested in getting some feedback on legendary pieces…vintage and the like. I’m not talking “good” or “in my opinion”, I’m talking widely accepted legends of the audio world. For example in my opinion, Evander Holyfield is a good boxer, but everyone knows that Muhammed Ali was the all time greatest…an undisputed legend. That’s the […]
