True. But I have time to think about it...

 

I just finished what has to be the most tedious soldering project ever. I replaced the 24 individual incandescent light bulbs from my cars third brake light and replaced them with LEDs (after having to crack each one open like a walnut). My fingers are raw - I am so done with soldering!

You could always use these (wired in parallel), but even I ruled them out as too ugly...

You Crack me up Adam (pun intended)! You could mount them on the side and paint them flesh colored and then paint the nuts pink...

How difficult do you guys think it would be to add an auto-shutoff to the crack?  I keep forgetting to turn it off before I leave.  And if not difficult, would it change the sound at all?

 

Edit:  Last week I bought a Sino 6AS7G, just for fun.  I much prefer the RCA 6080 tube that with the crack.  No speedball.

You could probably use a power socket timer device. I expect some would have a delayed shutoff system on them where they automatically switch off after a period of time. I haven't specifically ever looked for this, but wouldn't be surprised if it's out there. Of course, it might get annoying if it powers down halfway through a listening session though. Maybe a more intelligent system would be better, but not sure how that would work.

Finally got my tubes from Nathan and first of all decided to try Mullard E80CC and GEC 6AS7 combo and got the best sound I heard so far with smooth sound and holographic soundstage

I use this. Better than a timer, and easier to remember since it's just a push of a button on a remote. :D

I also tried Mullard E80CC with Telefunken 6AS7 and with this combo bass i presented is a little bit forward. Replacing E80CC with GE 8514 rolls off highs so will be suitable for those who feel that their headphones sound bright. To remove the roll off and to balance the bass while keeping punch and body you can use Westinghouse 12AU7, also Kenrad 6SN7 pairs nice with Telefunken 6AS7 eleminating bass emphasis completely but keeping depth and body. If you replace Telefunken with RCA it pairs well too but bass depth will be less

1. What is your source?
2. Do you ever use your source with anything other than the Crack?
3. Do you ever forget to turn off your source, or is it just the Crack you forget to turn off?
