Headamp Blue Hawaii Special Edition - Page 5

post #61 of 5885
Major congrats, Viki. Great addition to your ever-impressive collection of gear. Look forward to more detailed impressions after everything settles in.

Thanks for the words of wait-related encouragement. However, given the ultimate goal status the BHSE represents (at least for my limited pockets), it absolutely lessens the draw to other gear offerings, so there is a positive aspect. Other than the draw of the JH13 to replace the aging 2XS, I for the first time feel the merry-go-round has slowed to a crawl. Cool.

I also opt'd for the RK50 pot. Another long-time desire has been to own a piece of gear with the best pot available.

Viki, look forward to listening to the new amp at an upcoming meet. Congratulations.

No chance I could talk you into trading my house, car, and 2 cats for your BH, is there??? Maybe even throw in an old Bose system?

Cool. When you get the amp I'll come over to have a listen and help you smoke it. It will be groovy.

Sure; we'll twist a few, man. Don't forget the CDs and the Visine. Besides, you'll fully entrenched in stats by then, so we'll be able to compare.

Anyone's got the silver faceplate version? Wanna see how it looks. The all black looks great but I imagined that the silver ones would looks good too. Am on the fence about getting in the queue for one; a real wallet burner. Need to sell off more gear.
post #68 of 5885
There aren't any silver ones.
post #69 of 5885
It's not all black, either. The face is blueish, which imo makes it much more attractive than all black.

No, one person got a dark blue faceplate at special request.

Oh I thought that was a relatively standard thing, like color choices among some of Headamps other things. Oops. Either way, I love the color.

Can someone tell me if the metal "ring" around the EL34s are supposed to be in silver or black? Audiosceptic's is in silver while the Blue-faced one is black. I assume that the blue-faced BHSE was specially requested with black rings?

You can pick the color of the front panels (amp/psu) and the tube rings. I've seen pics of some silver pieces for the amps (mine perhaps) but never seen one finished.

That's good news. Would it be possible for you to post them or forward me the pics via pm? If you don't mind that is. Just curious how the silver faceplate would look like.

Done
