I'm still very happy with the amps. :D

The lack of background noise is nice as well, but perhaps solid state amps are like that ?

The only noise is from the 22v transformers, but it's only noticeable close up. There are a couple of mods to try and negate, or diminish that noise which I will implement next time the amps are on the operating table.

Another satified MoFo owner which must be nice.

Your statement above made me curious. Can you explain more?

Well, it seems (to me) quite difficult to get a valve amp totally silent. Perhaps it's the way I build things ?

Anyway, having silence when silence is needed, seems good to me, and a lower noise floor means quiet detail is not obscured.

The a cappella discs I have played recently really do show off human voice at it's best. :D

I've finally got round to getting more gain into the MoFo amp.

I have got a cheapie Chinese ( :oops: ) valve pre amp, and I have inserted that between my main pre amp (Audionote copy) and the MoFo.

Not quite sure about the quality, but got volume galore now. :D
