post #5896 of 5898

Figured I better show what's under the hood. Totally stock, for now. Don't think I'm gonna get speedball, heard tubes don't make as much diff with it but dunno

 

And a better look at the paint

Speedball brings the performance of the Crack up substantially. Clarity is optimized and the bass tightens up very nicely.

Having heard both versions, with varying tubes, I decided to use a non-speedballed Crack for my own listening as well. It was not a significant difference with my headphones (Senn HD600s) - and I preferred the additional harmonics in the regular crack. Not everyone will agree, but that was my call.
