I am now distributung the Korg NuTube 6P1 to DIYers, experimenters, and small OEMs.  You can get more info, including the full datasheet, at www.nutube.us.   Pete
Resurrecting an ancient thread, just in case this is useful to somebody...   My K1000's were suffering from the "flat pads" problem described below.  Spare parts for the K1000 are long gone by now, I suspect.  So I needed to find an alternative.   I tried a few things, but settled on some self-adhesive closed-cell vinyl foam strip that I bought form McMaster-Carr.  I got two thicknesses, as the pads on the rear are a bit thicker than the ones in the front, I guess to...
Anybody from the US planning on attending?  It turns out I'll be in Tokyo this weekend, so maybe I will...   Pete
I posted a little more info about the Sangaku on the Apex HiFi website at http://www.apexhifi.com/Sangaku.htm.   It's a pretty cool little amp.  It has the sonic characteristics of a directly-heated triode - which in fact the NuTube is - and the drive capability of a low-impedance solid-state amp.  I've been listening to it with K1000's, and it sounds great to me!   Here is what a NuTube looks like:     Pete
On the top is the main power transformer (~180W) and first filter choke... inside are two more filter chokes, one for each channel, plus another power transformer for housekeeping and the 6SN7 DC heater voltage. With a low-mu triode as the output, it's important to have very low power supply ripple, or you'd hear hum in sensitive headphones. Pete
Sorry, it seems beer has delayed the announcement. Stay tuned 😊
We have selected a winner! We'll announce it this evening at about 6:00 at the beer social at CanJam.
 Simply, because it didn't fit!  I would have preferred the 1/4" jack... There's a lot of stuff crammed into this little package. Pete
Wow, there are a lot of good suggested names here.  It will be a challenge to pick one...   Pete
FWIW... you can also set the LEDs to a mode in which only one LED is lit, instead of all the ones below.  "Dot mode" vs. "Bar mode".   The brightness is also adjustable. These settings are programmed in a setup mode, and are stored in internal flash memory so they remain unless you change them again. Pete
