Looks amazing! I'm sure it will sound that way as well.

Those WE 300B tubes look fantastic.

What's the recommended driver stage tube in this one?

Does it employ an infinite impedance voltage rectification circuit?

Hey bombadil, no it doesn't use the IIPS.
Dennis is sending them out with 6SL7s' but you can use the 6SN7 too.

I may have to try a 6SL7 in my PSE. Tried two different ones in my High Output KT88 and hated them.

Hey bombadil, I usually run 6SN7s' or 6BX7s'.
But the combination of the circuit I have in my amp now, and the speakers I'm using, along with the KT170s' is really very nice.

It’s finally here. Loving it!

I may have just been poisoned to get his pre-amps as well. Does anyone know what is the gain on the Lp-27 or LP-3a? My McIntosh MA7200 has 1.2V on the pre amp stage so I need something comparable or higher.

Hey Bentan, Dennis designs for about 12 to 13 db gain on all the Inspire preamplifiers.
