Which screw?What tubes did you try and which ones did you settle on?Thanks!
I'm looking for service manuals for HE90 and HEV90. I'm particularly interested in learning how to remove the tube cages. Any help much appreciated. BMF
YH-1000: the sets I've heard are sort of like improved YH-100 --- mid-centric and very nice sounding mids, relaxed bass, and polite treble. The YH-100's I've modified sounded much like YH-1000.

Someone a few pages back asked how Emotiva a-100 mini-X pairs with HD-800.   All four of these TOTL 'phones sound great with Emotiva a-100 mini-X amplifier modified with robrob's resistor design....Thanks, Rob!   The OPPO HA-1 served DAC duty.   Garage 1217's (Jeremy and Frans) "Ember" Hybrid Amp on top is also very good and has no trouble driving them, including HiFi Man HE-6 to ~ 90 to 95 dB.   BMF     The first two are on long term loan from a good...
I agree. T10 and T30 sound best to me. T50v1, not so much...at least for the one I heard. The build quality of all three is excellent.
