PurpleAngel what's the problem ? your indeed unit is dead or it's just the PSU ?

 

If you want i know a better unit than the Indeed, Bravo, Muse, etc... same design but more powerfull and flexible, and made in the USA, (i'm french and i've ordered one of these babies :) and it's a great amp).

It's Called the "Project Sunrise" it's a Diy kit but you can order it built, it's not cheap like the Indeed (cost about 230$ built), but the sound is great... it's not intended to be used with a mp3 player as source, and work at it's best with a DAC or any device with REAL line output (2Vrms).

 

You can order it here : http://store.garage1217.com/project-sunrise-hybrid-class-a--tube-headphone-amplifier.html

 

And if you need this website sell great upgrades kits for, Indeed, Bravo, Muse amps, and also tubes and the PSU :

Anyone try the 12AT7 series of tubes with the lower than standard mU ratings for AT? i.e. the 47 mU 5965 / 7062 / 6414 / 6829 ? or the even lower mU 6211?

Hi Y'all!

 

I just dropped in to see what's going on... I still use my G2, currently with an RCA 6922 (Siemens made in W Germany/ 72). Clean and airy sweet... Still the best, low-budget audio amp I've seen!

i've, been looking around and i have now seen a G3, it looks much the same as the G2 but just slightly better. does anyone know if its sound just as good and if some of the same mods can be done?

I was carrying the Indeed around from place to place and not packing it very well, it stopped working, tried replacing the tube (6922) and power cord, no luck.

FWIR, the G3 has upgraded some of the most crucial capacitors to IRL-510 caps, this results in greater treble extension & sweeter sound. There have been a few other changes as well, but I don't know what their specific benefits are.

Hi, I've got a G2(mildly tweaked-just swapped a few caps and fitted a bigger heatsink) and a G3(bog standard except for a bigger heatsink) - the G2's on the blink - more later. I find the G3 a bit light on bass without the loudness off and a bit too heavy on the bass with it on! Other than that I can't detect much difference between them. How the G3 compares with the stock G2 I can't say. The G2 starts crackling and the LEDs flicker when it's hot, sometimes it just stops and's OK again for a while, sometimes it goes dead but comes back to life when switched off and then on again - the PSU seems fine with a steady 24.4v. Anyone got any suggestions on what to replace first - I've tried a new valve (ECC82) but prefer the stock E.H. 6922 and there's no change.

Sorry - that should read "G3 a bit light on bass with the loudness off"

Hmm...
I'm no expert, but possibly it could be overheating? Are you able to double-check that the aftermarket heatsink is flush with it's contacts, and properly doing it's job to transfer the heat from the circuitry and components? I've read about someone who uses their tube amp on it's side for better ventilation. In general, heat is a major challenge for electronics.

I have been using a modern SET tube-hybrid amp by Zigis for a few months, I absolutely love it. I have a few Solid State amp options, but I enjoy the tube amp most.

Just got in a whole bunch of tubes today... 4 Vokshod 6N23P tubes and 2 Amperex 6DJ8 "Bugle Boys." I'm listening to the bugle boys right now, seems similar to the Sylvania JAN 6DJ8 I had before (at least it seems to have all the good points) and maybe a slightly weightier bass response. Kinda hard to just guess at the difference, but I am definitely enjoying them. Definitely better than the first tube I got, also an Amperex 6DJ8, but i think that one wouldn't test highly... too laid back. One thing I noticed is a ringing sound when I plugged in my headphones to the amp, and again if I tap the amp. Microphonics aren't a big deal, but I don't remember the military-grade JAN doing that much.

Oh really e.e compared to what. The Stock tube had nice bass with loudness off, I rolled a Clear Top 12ua7a into it and the bass got a little tighter and more detailed.

 

But even without bass boost it's cleary better than most portable solid states [that I've heard, BOOSTED G3 has more  bass than my E11 any and EVERY day [and thats e11 on setting 2] 

 

But it is a nice tube. Although I won't be getting to many tubes for it. I'm looking at a full Tube [Power n pre amp tubes] to purchase in three months. And seeing as I ONLY use my G3 for EDM I see it NEVER really being replaced since I like a little dirty techno ;3 but I do use another tube for more critcal listening lol.

I honestly didn't try rolling my other new tubes today after I put in the first Bugle Boy I grabbed.

Zigis sent me new wooden side panels for my amp, but I couldn't put them on yet because I don't have the right kind of screwdriver (those shallow star-shaped ones? Not Phillips, I think they're called Torx?)

Oh nice, honestly for the price I'm happy with the sound! I don't want to spend any more in it, as I'm upgrading my audiophile tube! For the bass head in my the indeed G3 is a easy CHEAP winner xD
