Apex Peak/Volcano Review - Page 22

post #316 of 392

Noise free Sylvania Bad Boy on its way back to me.  Still loving the single tube.  I look at the Super7 for instance and cry at what would be $350 in replacements, ouch.  Now I just need to get my Mjolnir and run it through an A/B to be 'done' for at least a little while ;)

Until the Dynahi that is.....

If the Dynahi.  Its one of those mythical beasts.  It's great and anyone can build one but no one does for some reason.

It's not easy at all, esp considering the custom heatsinking. Also, you have to have some knowledge of replacement parts unless you're building the new super symmetry Dynamite (balanced).

Doesn't change that its available to anyone who wants to have a go at it.  The unicorn I have coming is the super symmetry onboard heatsink version.  Be an easier sell if GlassJar had kits on the ready.

What do ya'll mean when you say super symmetry?

post #322 of 392

I'm no expert but my understanding is the patent for it just went open and Kevin modded the input on the Dynahi with it.  Balanced only though.

Oh, I thought you were referring to the super symmetry as predicted by M Theory (squarks, etc...). tongue.gif

Good news, my balanced QCables for my LCD-3 and HD800s shipped out today (thanks Steve smile.gif BTW). So I'll be able to hear the full gambit of what the GS-X can do. So far though, I'm thoroughly happy.....but hoping for even more "happiness" next week when I get the cables. wink.gif

My favourite with the Peak, no contest.  And after running the gambit, the Peak stayed in the end.  Considering the competition through here, that's quite the accomplishment.  I would still love to hear an EC BA but the chances of getting one used are about 0.

 

About the only thing I would change... shorter power cord.  Do I want to pay Pete $50 for it... still working that one out.
