That is cool Guru - the 6AS7 can put out a lot of current.   Here is a project that is long overdue    This project has been a long time comming. I have had the head-band and turned cups for at least 5 years and the final vision for which drivers etc has changed many times. The motivation came when my son accicentally killed my iems which I use for travel and as I am not a fan of iems, I decided to explore options for travelling. I love my Yamaha YHD1's as they are...

As much as I love the detail and neutral tone of the Liquid Gold, I still seem to come back to the Glass as my "comfort zone". There is just a sense of delicacy with the tube microdynamics that it lulls the senses and feels so right.  why must there be such tough choices in life ? ..dB
Yes    I feel that the Abyss offers an insight into detail and tone that no other planar does ( for me ) and that includes stats. As a reference, the original Omega has been the best stat I have heard. 
  sooo tempting to have some fun with this    smeggy felt - just thick but dense felt initially used to damp the now extinct SFI drivers by our own ortho nut "Smeggy" who gave us the 'thunderpants' and opened the doors for all further T50rp mods including Mr Speakers Mad/Alpha Dog and LFF's Paradox. It is a thick natural fibre felt pad ( not unlike old carpet underfelt )    "yellow biscuit" , this is not what happened to the Blues Brother's Rubber biscuit after a...
