Kevin - let us know what you are driving your 1038s with once you've posted your listening results. I've found the 40wpc of KT-88 triode power to a great fit with the 1008s.

Glen...I'll be driving them with my Mcintosh MA8000 300wpc integrated. Hopefully a good match. I auditioned them extensively with a MC452.

When looking for upgrading my speakers the 7t's caught my attention.
After talking with Ivan and reading on this forum from other 7t owners I purchased a pair from Ivan without an audition and an understanding that he would take them back lf not satisfied.
Approaching the two year mark and still very satisfied with the 7t's.
Great to look at even better to listen to.
