But...I'm not getting images that are posted though. :(

Matt are you still able to on?  I took a look about an hour ago and noticed the same pic bug went to leave a bug report as pics linked via urls work ok but those attached with the little paper clip symbol did not how as normal. When I pushed the submit button it went back to the admin maintenance page and I have been unable to log in since.

^^ Yes, I'm still on. Looks like they have some bugs to work out, which is to be expected in a transition like this.

When a domain moves as outs just did it takes up to 24 hours for it to propagate throughout the internet. Going from a dedicated server to cloud based makes the process a bit more complex as various parts of the site are now on various servers. My suggestion is just try again in a while. Re the images, we are aware of the issue. I have a thread started about the new website, where you guys can post bug reports so you don't have to use the bandwidth on Head Fi. Things like the images and other glitches will probably start to get fixed Monday, as the web design team needs a few well deserved days off.

I am able to get inside and the new website looks fantastic! I am a fan of the grey/orange layout as it's pretty well known that reduces eye fatigue and improves legibility.

 

Cheers Doc!

Some people might still be having cache issues. Try holding Ctrl or Shift before hitting the refresh button (or pressing F5).

Short update on the Jantzen Superior Z

 

I am glad I gave the Jantzens some time to burn in they have defiantly improved. The very annoying sibilance that was initial prevalent (testing with my most prevalent recordings for it)has noticeably diminish.

 

The sound continued to improve across the spectrum and with it a shift in the equilibrium appearing with the balance between liquidity and authority. The Jantzen signature is more dominant and overriding.  Super Resolution and fast transients spacious stage override.

 

Resolution, on some uber fast Spanish guitar pieces is astonishing not only able to hear notes as normal but also the attack of the plectrum hitting the strings on each strum behind the notes quiet amazing considering the speed.

 

With further listening and burn this combination for me has swung to far to the clinical side with its authority and dominance at the expense of musicality.

The softness and naturalness of texture in timbre and tones which beguiled is being drowned out.  I removed the Jantzens from this combination so I could re-reference the sound. I will try them again later with some pio caps and see if it’s a more pleasing combination. The Jantzens are certainly very good caps and I think many would like what they bring to the table.

 

A couple of progress pics.

P.S. I just received my pre-build (with speedball upgrade) unit today and was wondering  if I could use any of this tubes (sorry I just can't get on the Bottlehead Forum)
