New York Audio Design Exhibition


Moore 10Y Amplifier

   Stereo?  Who needs stereo?  Larry Dean Moore came up next with a 10Y coupled to a 10Y dual stage tube single-ended single channel dual-chassis unit.  Two chassis, one channel, two output tubes, nothing else.  Ya got that mate?  He played a killer mono vinyl tune by Miles Davis.  Over the years i have heard people argue that mono is where the "real" music is at.  They go on how stereo causes phase problems, etc.  Mono, stereo... who cares when Miles was sounding soooo good.


Mr. Blackie Pagano gave no real introduction to his tube goody and just got to the music.  Last song Blackie played was Wilco "Being There".  Wilco is a loud rowdy band hard rockin' band.  Blackie is a great example of the wonderful and unique people in the DIY community.  The guy has, like, all these tattoos and is a self admitted gear-head.  Ya know, my kinda dude.


Everyone was waiting to hear this huge amplifier (as seen above).   Finally, Dave Slagle played this huge conglomeration of massive tube ecstasy.  It was none other then Tracy Chapman playin' Gimme One Good Reason exhuming this time from the speakers.  This is a product of the internet he said.  To quote an e-mail i just got from Dave-dude "The outputs were designed by a German engineer, Michael Ulbrich, who is not a winder by trade (I guess hobbyist was a poor choice of words). He set out to build a better mousetrap, and IMO succeeded. These outputs are in the same class with the Tango, and Tamura nickel and amorphous core outputs, and represent the cutting edge of extreme audio."


Last up came Mr. Yoshioka and his amplifier is based on the 6C33 Russian-made vacuum tube.  His single chassis stereo amplifier uses all Tango transformers and a few commented it was one of the best sounds of the show.  It was a truly unique design.  Of course the craftsmanship was top notch too.  A DIY unit doesn't need to look DIY.  In fact most of the DIY amplifiers looked very professional at the show.  (Humor) Something you could be proud to bring home to your mother too.


In the end a great time seemed to be had by all.  There was an enormous feeling of togetherness as the DIY/Tube/Music loving community gathered together for a day of music, memories and fun.  For those who didn't make it to the show, i am very grateful that you can see it via this internet report.  A great big thanks/shouts to all those who helped make this show possible.  See ya next year!

     Enjoy the Music.
