Bravo Audio - funny looking little tube amps - Page 7

Maybe this is only a power supply issue, do you have another 24V@1A (well, 500mA should be enough) to try with ?
Can you check that yours really output 24V with a voltmeter ?

Will give it a try.You never know. Thanks chaps.
Power supply checks out fine,will get back to bravo and see what they say.

I'm sure there is a super easy fix as there are hardly any components on the board. I place my bets on a bad cap. You could also try maxing those two yellow pots and see what happens.

Hey, it's a cool looking paper weight though.
post #95 of 2599
Maxed out the yellow pots,no diff,walkman still sounds better with out it.
I guess it's back to having the coolest paper weight on the block.

You can salvage it parts later if you ever decide to.

I posted this in the Indeed thread also... I wish we could compare the Indeed vs the Bravo.

sorry to hear that someone's amp has problem. try it with mine w1000, it drives it easily, it is been burned more than 70 hours so far. the sound is getting better
post #99 of 2599
well my amp showed up today!



initial impressions being my 1st amp and all, is even with my audio technica's ath-m50's which dont need a amp per alot of people the bass seems to kick harder at the lower frequencies then before at around the same listening volume. almost like it has a better response. I think people describe it as being tighter. I did think it was weird that i had to manually plug into the tube amp by hand. Does this easily remove without breaking? since i know alot of people like to try different tubes

edit: another pic heh

The look of it never fails to intrigue me. It's open air and lights up... I'm just not sure about it's sonic capabilities and reliability.
post #101 of 2599
whats sonic capabilities?

at $40-50.00 bux shipped.....not so concerned about reliability..worth the risk to try compared to some the heavier priced items out there.....i think its an excellent 1st amp experience for me w/o breaking the bank, heh. Tho i see many here so far seem to be fine.

Pretty much sound quality. I'm leaning toward the Little Dot MKII. The I+ would do as well with 408A tubes.

I just ordered one of these. I don't know jack about tubes, but I get the impression that changing the stock tube could improve the amps performance. What are good compatible tubes?

I'm really looking forward to play with this both as a headphone amp and preamp for my livingroom rig

I do not own this amp (yet!) but from what I understand, the Sylvania 6DJ8 is one of the 'best' (of course it's subjective) tubes for this amp.

Woow ! Clearer bass and medium and better soundstage for sure !
will i be able to notice this difference if the difference to me between amped & unamped are subtle...granted i can hear the difference, but mostly between base with the stock tube...

if i upgrade the tube will i get a noticeable difference in sound i guess is what im asking
