Let me know if you need any unusual stuff. Tangotubes.com (Roland) is a swede that I have good contact with and he has a lot of premium tubes. Not cheap. But definitely NOS as in NOS.
 Hi mate! I prefer the Tall Black Base... It's a bit more neutral while the short brown base was a bit more euphonic. It's a matter of taste. So try them out, pick the one you prefer (... and the differences aren't THAT big...) Regarding the Full Music & Sophia Electric. The official story is that some of the best tubes are branded Sophia Electric and sold directly to them. Wether this is actually true and justifying the price. I haven't had the pleasure (?) to give them a...
C! Congratulations on the ZDSE... and thanks for letting me buy your original prospect.A year later it becomes yours. Let me know if you need any interesting tubes, I got some in the stash... Cheers,V
http://vorzuge.com/products/vorzamp/vorzamppure-ii   Prices are starting to get ALO Audio / RSA-ridiculous.   Too bad, at least the 1st gen was a pretty good amp, overpriced but good. Now they fixed the problems with the first gen and bump it up 135 USD. For what... A gain switch? HAH.   That's just robbing people.   But the AK100 & AK120 are selling so, people will no doubt buy this 2 gen too.   /V
So... How many (future) owners do we have here?
Harald is a really cool guy! I've mailed with him on numerous occasions, but that was the first time we met (by mistakes... he sat in the chair between while I was a bit disappointed by the Orpheus-system or rather the music playing).He has heard a lot of heaphones but I think both my Anax-modded and ReferenceSounds-modded phones impressed him. :)
Beautiful avatar... Must be a good photographer. ;)
I'd say the clamping force is a bit lighter. The big difference is however that the pads and headphone don't have the "roll inwards towards the nose"-feeling. With LCD-2 r2 and LCD-3, the fluffier pads tend to create an inward rotation... the modded HE-5 doesn't have that problem. The HD800 is conciderably lighter and also "aerier". They convey the feeling of not wearing headphones. As good as the Code-X might be, it's close... but no cigar.
Keep which plain plastic cups? ;)
Good luck with the sale. Those are really two killers amps.
