Thx for the tip, I'll have to look for it on ebay

The TS 5998 seems to be THE tube for the crack. It's the best I've heard anyway...

IMHO GEC 6AS7G is THE tube for the Crack, beats the TS 5998 in clarity (but for T90's which are a bit bright TS 5998 is perfect match).

Good luck! 

 

This must be the UK version of ebay, then?

 

I wonder if I can manage to sneak over there and bid on something...

When searching on ebay in the uk

 

A standard ebay search in the UK will give results for UK and also matches from sellers in other countries who pay extra to have International listings.

 

search's can also be filtered to 

 

UK only, Europe, Worldwide.

 

I expect other countries have something similar. By the way I can log into USA ebay.com with my ebay.uk details.

 

Generally the extra shipping + import and handling fees from the US don't make it attractive especially if ordering from a retail supplier but there are exceptions.

The Bottlehead forum is down again they have not had any luck restoring all the pictures which became corrupted. It must be very frustrating. 

 

 

I find the new product page a is a nice improvement it looks very slick and polished with a good balance of info and specs about each product.

^^ It's not easy to make that kind of wholesale change but I'm sure that Doc and the boys will sort it out. I love their new look. 

 

It would be wonderful if headfi would adopt a similar color scheme. As much time as I spend on HF, I'd certainly appreciate the relaxing look.

Hey guys !

 

I'll buy Crack to use with my ODAC> HD 600, and I was wondering if the speedball make much difference?

Yes, it makes a big difference. Maybe the biggest difference of all upgrades. It should be considered at the very top of the list if you want to improve the quality of the amp.

matt thanks for the reply ... I'm afraid to import a crack, the box is too big and I have to pay a lot of taxes here in Brazil :(

 
 
with speedball will be even more expensive, I'll have to think yet ...

 

Thanks ;)

Just note you wont see all items for sale, only items that have a postage price populated specifically for your location.  For example you can login to ebay.com and find items listed with "worldwide" shipping, yet those items wont show up through ebay.co.uk.   Same is also true for European variants, ebay.de, .fr, .it, .es, .be, .ch etc.  You can find some real gems on those sites with a little time searching.   ....probably should have kept that one to myself.

It's driving me nuts.  I've tried intermittently over the last several days to browse the gallery without much luck.  I am really interested in alternate cases.  I want to start one of their DIY kits - but in something that will match the my other gear.

Well I am not sure what you have but you can stain the wood the color that you want and you can also paint the top plate and bell the color that you want as well.

What color/style are you looking for exactly?
