Yes, I know! But I can't find anyone with one. @n3rdling is coming, but his BHSE is not working at the moment. Any ideas who I can hit up?

Sorry, I mis-understood n3rdling. I realize now he did not mean BHSE. He must have meant his "Blue Hawaii (Spritzer Build)" as listed in his profile. 

 

Sorry, my bad!

Had a heart attack a few months ago. Still recovering, doing rehab.

Possible additional surgeries in the future. Building amps is the last thing on my mind.

Thanks for askin!

Sorry to hear this.

Will pm you.

Boy-O-Boy, I sure took a dump on this thread and scared everyone away!

Sorry for crapping on your thread Justin, I am sure that you have been enjoying the peace and quiet.:wink:

Already posted these pics before but I was going through my photo gallery and thought I'd re-post for the current buyers waiting for theirs. I remember writing that I'd never part with my BHSE, oh how wrong I was on that. :redface: Even got rid of the CD player too....

Forgot that I'd taken this pic too. A whole lot of HeadAmp goodness there with the Gilmore Lite, GS-X MK1, BHSE, & KGSS. ;)

All told a nice trip down memory lane. :smile:

so you kept the gilmore and sold the BHSE or already had the gilmore?

Asr, Anything look familiar? Plinius sounds good with Headamp amps. In my case, the Gilmore Lite while I wait and save for my BHSE.

I actually sold everything in that pic and re-acquired another Gilmore Lite.

Very nice setup you have there, glad you like it. ;) I've been curious about the EAR HP4 for a long time, maybe I'll get a chance to hear one someday.

Interesting. I read your post last year, and since then I have gone through (2) dead, shorted PSVANE Type II EL34. I don't have my Amplitrex any longer, so I am just guessing they shorted, but they also acted like they were in a runaway state. I was sent a replacement from the seller at my cost for shipping, and same problem about 2 weeks later. My Mullard re-issues from upscale meanwhile, perform flawlessly and bias much better in my Decware amp.

 

I just picked up some vintage Tesla OO getter and I may try these replicas....just gotta find a seller who actually screens and tests tubes properly!

Sorry to hear that.

 

Actually, the tubes I use are the Psvane EL34PH (still the same quad as last year), not the Type II.

 

Grand Fidelity does do testing prior to shipping from China (I believe they have the Amplitrex as well, it mentioned on their site somewhere).

 

This is why I don't recommend buying Shuguang or Psvane from Ebay, seems to be way too many failures for all their tubes, not just the EL34's.

Right, sorry to confuse, my point was I am hesitant to buy PSVANE again. But.... Grant Fidelity cost is worth the testing and matching they are doing, instead of messing around with various Chinese re-sellers.

 

Also, the New Sensor KT77 (Genalex re-issue) is a tube you could consider too. My amp has a mod for EL34, but this KT77 is quite a tube. I may try them in this SET amp.
