Current state as of today. Warming up with some Shpongle in the cans.

Newest addition to my rig:

Two almost brand new Nubert nuPro A-10 :)

 

Managed to get them for $550 instead of $730 ;)
They sound just stellar.
At first I thought I would miss my old subwoofer, but I'm super happy with this 2.0 setup!

My new computer rig!

 

11" Macbook Air (New)

Pico amp/dac

PSB M4U 1 (New)

 

So far, I'm quite liking this. The PSB's are taking over from the Sony MDR-7520. I think the Sony's will be going up for sale soon!

What are those speakers/stands in the background?

The only camera I have to take the picture with is garbage, but here's a general idea:

The speakers are Harbeth P3ES2. I'm not quite sure of the speaker stands but they're your usual metal tube stands.

I believe the name of it is "Chef'n"

Brought back out to update the OS from Windows XP to Windows 7. Replaced the IDE hard drive with a SSD drive. She's slow, 2 gigs of ram maxed out, but it's stable, allows me to stream from my NAS drive.

 

Yes that is a Sovtek 6922 tube built on a mother board.  AOpen AX4B 533 Tube Motherboard to be exact "as far as I know, this was only done by the engineers at AOPEN, they made 2 types of these boards, both AMD and Intel based. I have yet to see the AMD board" Another Intel P4 based board was produced for the Japanese market, slightly different sound output capacitors on that board"

 

Its just a pre-amp, doesn't really get hot, just nice and warm. The motherboard is a outdated Intel P4 533mhz chip

 

 

 

 

set board.  I feed this into my 6AQ5 single ended headphone amp with NOS tubes.

 

It was a really nice attempt at the time, the engineers went with quality capacitors, but they used the Realtek AC97 codec which isn't that great. From the tube output, it's only 2 channel, the board will do 5.1 out the optical output, but it takes a diffrent route not through the 6922 tube.

 

The sound subsystem of the motherboard consists of:

  • Realtek ALC650 AC'97 codec; 
  • Vacuum tube (twin triode) Sovtek 6922 (Made in Russia) which can be replaced with any similar one; 
  • ELNA capacitors in the power circuitry of the tube; 
  • CARDAS copper cables between the amplifier and connectors; 
  • REL MultiCap capacitors in the sound section; 
  • VISHAY resistors.

I'd love to see a shot of that computer case and the Fireflies (on) with your room lights off.
