For sale is a Meier Audio 2StepDance portable headphone amplifier in excellent condition. $150 shipped in the USA. PayPal ONLY.
You have a Marantz 2500??? THE 2500, the one Marantz monster receiver? Doesn't get better than that.
Different, yes, but not all that different. The Sylvania VT-231 pictured there is a truly excellent tube, IMO. Does everything pretty well and doesn't do anything poorly. Balanced, nuanced, and robust.
That's a nice tube - it's a Sylvania VT-231. I highly doubt that's the original box for that tube, however.
For sale is a very nice pair of PSB M4U2 noise canceling headphones. These are in very good condition. They work absolutely perfectly. They show normal signs of careful use. The case itself has a little more sign of wear, but is structurally sound. Have priced to sell! Check my feedback no buy with confidence.
In addition to jnorris's excellent post, note that damping factor is irrelevant for the LCD-2, as the impedance curve is completely flat across the frequency spectrum.
Well if both of those were in very good condition, I would go with the Toshiba. That Pioneer model is an older belt drive design, and that Toshiba is very likely a CEC-built direct drive TT that's branded Toshiba (at least from what the pics on the 'net look like).
That would make sense, because wasn't a lot of the Toshiba tooling directly copied from Raytheon (on purpose under Raytheon's supervision)?
Just for what it's worth, lots of companies rebranded Russian tubes, especially toward the end of the tube era. I had some Sylvania 6AS7G tubes that were rebranded Svetlanas. They were unquestionably "authentic" - Sylvania had rebranded them. Just have to be able to spot Russan tubes.
