It's on my short list but I don't own/collect the tubes it takes except for the 6V6 and I can't start buying/collecting 6922/6DJ8 tubes when I already have several hundred pairs 12AU7, 12AT7, 12AX7...
aboroth00, you have my attention and I am seriously interested.
Thanks appreciate that. Looks like you might have a buyer for the Mullards. Does yours have all the things you mention as the Magnum upgrade?
I have a pair of K63 R8L that are superb. (K63 indicating ECC82/12AU7 long plate halo w/2 support rods; R8L indicating made in Mitcham, 1958, L being the month of manufacture). Simply sublime.
I saw that. I was searching using "Magnum" in the string and not much came up. Thanks
Internal pics would be great too, to see what's inside is a big selling point for me personally. Any idea of age. I suppose it could be anywhere from 13 years old to about 7 years old.
Well I am interested, but I really don't need nor want the tubes. So if you decide to sell it without the tubes, shoot me a price and pics when you get a chance. Any idea what mods were done to...
Pics? Would you sell without the tubes? I have a couple dozen pairs of 12AU7's and don't need the tubes. 12AU7's that are microphonic? Can't say I've heard that before.
Does it only use...
It's not really marketed or designed to compete with the higher end units. Maybe look at AsSiMiLaTeD's posts as he did a dac comparo including some of the ones you mention in addition to the Dac IT....
I suppose I am veering off topic a bit. My comments were meant to apply generally. I have no doubt Emperical Audio makes great gear. My own personal journey revolves around economics and great...
That's sort of a utopian way to look at it, IMO. Rarely is one piece designed exactly as another minus the singular variable, so it's probably impossible to compare apples to apples. That doesn't...
Surprised this is still here.
Well he is trying to sell audio gear so I take his comments with a grain of salt as I would any manufacturer. Too bad you can't compare the much less expensive Monarchy DIP to get a true measure...
Early Monitor 5's with peerless tweeter.
Anything that strays from linearity IS distortion. By its very definition distortion is non-linearity within the audio signal. Therefore jitter is a form of distortion.
Tony jitter is distortion, by definition. Nothing gained, nothing ventured. Even and Odd distortion have different characteristics and our ears hear it differently. You know you can not lump all...
He'll pull through, thoughts and prayers to he and his family.
It's geared more towards users of Sonos, SQB that don't use an external dac. But like the Monarchy DIP I could see this having possible benefits if using an external dac also. But if the external...
Very interesting Carl, thanks for posting.
Whatever he's growing, he's also consuming large amounts of it! :wink:
Yeah, I'm going to bump this one before I get ready to leave for Turkey Day today, since I'm being lazy on the computer and listening to the office tube rig!
I have been a tube buying tear lately...
LMAO!!!!! Thanks for a good hearty chuckle
This might be old news to many but I sort of suspected, but it's been confirmed.
Recently it's been confirmed SED =C= tubes are no longer being manufactured and there is no future plan to ever...
