I just got a RCA 12AT7 and a RCA Cleartop 12AU7 and I see what you mean, mauroj. I find that the differences aren't as obvious with electronic music but vocals and traditional instruments sound much more realistic in timbre. Thinking of picking up a Mullard 12AU7 next and maybe a Telefunken in the future.
Hi Danba. Govibe Magnum works with my Note 2.   http://jaben.net/shopping2/GoVibe-Magnum-portable-amplifier.html
I'm curious. Do you guys feel that NOS really provide a much better sound? I have a bunch of tubes, but they're all current production. I could get some NOS ones but they're quite a bit more expensive. Also, have you tried any of the lower gain tubes such as 12AT7s or 12AU7? I don't have any high impedance cans and never go past the 12 O'clock mark on volume so I've been thinking that I don't really need the gain of 12AX7s.
Pete, to clarify, do you mean disable USB charging on the Glacier or on the phone?
We'll have to wait and see, I guess. I wish I could help, but I won't be able to get the Glacier for at least a month. As a side note, when you get the Glacier, could you compare it to the Sony Z1070?
I agree with the suggestion of a right-angled plug or at least a version that comes with a right-angle plug. I really like the look of the cable. Any estimates on a release date? Also, does it use memory wire?
That's a bummer turokrocks. I just got a Note 2 myself and I was thinking of getting an Apex Glacier as well, so I was hoping your experiment would work without modifications. I just PMed feiao at FiiO to make a suggestion that they make a short OTG micro-usb cable, so hopefully they'll at least look into it.
I just got one of those regulated switchable power supplies that can provide 15v 800ma  from a electrical store here. If you want to play it safe, you could get the Rolls PS15 mentioned in the review. I would have gone for that myself but it's not available here in Singapore. Looks like there are quite a few online US retailers that carry it, so it should be easy for you though.
Nice to see some other Bellari HA540 users. It is a nice amp. Just to share, I saw this review on Amazon    http://www.amazon.com/review/R3P9VK1YU3KA08/ref=cm_cr_pr_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B004FI6AKW&linkCode=&nodeID=&tag=   The user recommends switching to another power supply as the HA540 is rated to run at 15v 700ma but the included wallwart is only 15v 200ma. They claim an increase in soundstage depth and and after changing to another power supply myself, I would...
I have a Note 2 and I can confirm that the Govibe Magnum DAC/Amp works with it.   http://jaben.net/shopping2/GoVibe-Magnum-portable-amplifier.html
