Now for those who like some audio pron once in a while.

I take it you mean 'porn'. And I agree....I had to take a cold shower. he he he... :mrgreen:

Now, is this unit all attached together the way you mated my KQ Boxy?
I did mean "porn". Did I spell it wrong? I guess I did. I spell it correctly in the title though. :D :lol: :wink:

Yes, they all attached together via the three umbilical cords. Similar to your KQ Boxy.

No reason why we couldn't run an NSW with the preamp outs, right?

Your AG8100 shares some very similar design with the NSI. Remember when I wanted to go as far as you would let me with your AG8100 earlier this year. I was designing, building, testing and back to drawing boarding on the NSI along side with your AG8100. Thanks for let me have fund with your AG8100.
Gilbert

That’s reassuring! I’m glad we went as far as we did with the design! :D
Thank you as I get to enjoy it daily.

Your amp design is newer than that picture. That was 1980's. :lol: :wink: :roll: :roll: :mrgreen: :shock:

Yeah, there is reason not to connect the preamp output to a NSW directly. Because the NSW gain doesn't match the NSI gain, it will cause mid-high/woofer imbalance. Assuming you are thinking using the NSI to drive the upper or full range and NSW to drive the lower or sub-woofer? If that is what you are thinking, the NSW need a volume level control to match the NSI gain.

Sending the NSI-G may be difficult right now unless you are willing to wait 6 to 9 months. That's how long the waiting list for audition is right now. Or, I grow another pair of hand so I can build more. That seems unlikely though.

There is always a BUT......... If I modify the demo BC307 with the ned NSI-G 6SN7 Tube "dream" circuit, then you can put it in your system for a test drive. You will get the same 6SN7 Tube rolling knob effect from the BC307. If you are serious, I am serious. How serious are you?

On driving the NSW with the preamp output of an NSI, I was thinking of using the NSI in place of my NSC. If that's not a good idea, I'll just let the NSC continue to service the NSW and leave the NSI to its own devices!

This is a different story. If you are using the NSI as a preamp only, then it is ok.

Haven't been here in a while :oops: . This sounds like an exciting new product. If it has the same sound as the NSL but with greater power, then this integrated will be a beast! Just wondering why it is built as an integrated - is this part of what makes it special?

I have been thinking how to answer your question without being too long and whiny. It's not as easy as to say Integrated amp when it done right, it sounds better than pre/power combo. Because without any explanation, I will be shot at point blank by many. However, I don't care anymore, I am going to say Integrated amp when it is done right, it sounds better than pre/power combo. So there.

Now, I will try to explain a little.
