Spotify (320 kbps OGG) or foobar2000 (FLAC) to HRT MSII+ to LA339
It was with both the LCD-2 and HD650's...
Weird. I think those Svetlana "6SJ7"'s have a nasty gain. or "think and think".. they do. Stock Svetlana "6AS7" + "6SJ7" = couldn't turn the volume dial up more than 7'o'clock with HD650.
Haven't tried with the LCD-2's... Why waste my time? ;)
CLAS + The National arriving tomorrow. Loooking forward to it:)
I have to...
LF339 w/ 7236 + Stock Sovtek/Svetlana 6J8 = Wonders in the bass department. Both quality and texture.
*Listens to remastered Tupac" (No, I don't wear baggy jeans, and... yeah I actually feel that he had something important to say.. One has to really listen.)
Volume 0 -> power on -> wait at least 30s -> plug in headphone -> adjust volume
Turn volume to 0 -> unplug -> power down
At least that's what I do with my tube amps. Even doc from Bottlehead said that with these OTL amps it's better to do this. Starting up: a tube might pop, shutting down, there could be a spike
