Oh well, that and $.25 will buy y'all a cup of coffee( except in LA, it's more like $ 25.00.. enjoy the Latte!)

yeah im pretty sure GEC will be better. buying the WE 421A just to compare to 5998 and to have for bragging rights, but im sure the GEC are still better.

DG, what is the going price for the Woo 596 adapters?  I find myself following (at times) blindly the Head-fi crew/ leads (not a bad thing) as I have generally a genuine common sense approach towards my purchases.

i need to buy the following first:

 

a GEC U52, a Western Electric 422A, a Cossor GZ37 fat, a pair of Western Electric 421A, a pair of Bendix 6080wb slotted, and also need to buy some more 6SN7s. oh and new cables for my headphones.

BTW, my Bendix are not slotted like I originally thought.  They are solid, but exceptional in all sonic character and presentation.  I believe the slotted version provides earlier heat equalization across the graphite plates (I prefer 4-8 hours warm up for extreme performance.)  My TS 6080 WB graphite's are of a slightly different configuration and a slight step below in overall performance from the Bendix.  The TS sound good but are extremely sensitive to micro phonics.

Crap, I forgot to say if you find a reasonable pair of Bendix/ TS  6080 WB graphites... buy them, they are absolutely great.  Everyone should have them in their line-up if they care about their sound!

Want to borrow my balanced Silver Dragon for LCD until you get yours? I have no use now until I get to buy the LCD3 (maybe 4) next year.

oooh yeah i wouldn't mind borrowing silver dragon :D then i can see if its worth placing an order with moon audio for my cables.  last time i had one of their cables i loved it, but it was blue dragon old version on hd 650s.

No rumor, it is just my hope. Sure, I will ship it along with the tubes.

open no wood?

 

interesting....

 

if its priced it between, it hopefully doesn't outperform the LCD-3.

 

and the mad dog is the response to audeze's closed back. it'll be interesting to see how they compare.
