    Re: Cool tube gear from Line Magnetic ...

    Here's a shot of my Line Magnetic 218. I'm in love with this amp and can't imagine the sweet sounds that the huge 219 produces. I would really like to hear either the O/93's or O/96's but I live in an audio wasteland. The dealer I go through, who does the trade shows with John D., thinks the O series sounds better than the new Gibbon X. I really like the O series of speakers. They remind me of how speakers looked when I was growing up which I think is pretty cool in a retro way.

    Re: Cool tube gear from Line Magnetic ...

    I also like this little amp.




    Mini 218
    2 x EL84 / 2 x 12AX7
    3 wpc Single Ended Class A
    Headphone output
    One input
    4 and 8 ohm output taps
    Tube cage included

    I think this would make a sweet headphone amp!

    At one point I had the web address for an inside look at the Line Magnetic Factory. I'll have to do some rummaging around and try to come up with it. If I recall correctly it was in Chinese but had some pretty cool pics. Stay tuned!

    Hi Doug,

    I wish I had known about the LM amps before I bought this one. A Miniwatt N3. It's not terrible but it's a little flat.

    Here's the article from audiotechnique (via another website) on the LM factory. Like I said earlier it's all in Chinese but has some nice pics of the facility.

    Yep, it's my Ayon Spirit III. I love it. Here's a pic of my rig. Ayon tends to fly under the radar a bit, but they make superb gear. The Spirit III weighs about 75 lbs!

    Nice rig Jay. I dig those speaker stands. Are you starting to peel the veneer off the shelf above the Ayon with all the heat it puts out?!

    Re: Cool tube gear from Line Magnetic ...

    Thanks - the stands were designed by Carl's (Nola designer) daughter to go with the Micros. There are 4 ball bearings between the speaker and the stand. I hadn't thought about the veneer under the media console, but it looks fine...whew! I felt it today after having the amp on and it was warm, but not hot. Hopefully it doesn't become an issue with time.

    Doug,
    Your integrated looks really sexy and it is the first time I see a 845 amp driven by EL34 tubes....
    Interesting.
