I think I'm done now but waiting for some tefon bypass to try 'em out.

It's never enough! But now I love the sound and I will settle on this setup.

Hexfred IR rectifiers soft recovery, BC 3X1000µF caps + BC 2X470µF caps

So... Now it has been decided.. It's the 339 for me... Just gotta sort out the details with the Boss first.

Since I am a semi-DIY (studied electronics, which I aborted), it's really assuring that I can upgrade the 399 in the future.

 

Special thanks to Ultrainferno and telecaster for input!

 

Soon... the "wait" begins... How I hate the wait...

Excellent choice! Don't forget to order your tube convertors too and keep us posted ;)

Ordering as we speak... Which tube convertors should I order?

 

All the tube talk in the past 63 pages (of which I read 'em all) was too much for a new Tube-noob.

 

Tx,

Well there only are EF80 and EF86 adapters :)

Thanks for the quick reply... Now the wait...

 

Luckily I recieved a pair of great IEMs a couple of weeks ago [that "unfortunately" dwarfed the HD650 +  Fubar IV Plus (utter crap)] to entertain me...

 

A quick tube recommendation, which should I pick up (except for daily hunting ebay for 5998's)?

 

Tx,

Tx,

 

The amp got to me in 1 week time, you won't have to wait too long.

The usual, 6AS7G Tung-sol, RCA black plates, Chatham,...

And some 5693 RCA RED or TFK EF80 or 6SJ7GT Tung sol

 

My fav combo is the 2399 (= 5998) + RCA RED (no adapter needed)

post #940 of 2404

I'll start looking. Soo looking forward to receive the amp :)

I just got some amperex EF80's for cheap off of ebay ($10 shipped for the pair) and have been trying them with the 7236's and the 5998's. 

The new EF80's (not bugle boys by the way as I also have a set of those) sounded a tad leaner with the 7236's through the LCD-2 so i tried them with the Magnums and there was definitely something wrong in the upper midrange, where the magnums shine. So I switched to the 5998's and the sound was back to normal with that familiar oomph in the lows and a smooth midrange. 

I just thought I would share this if anyone cares.

post #943 of 2404

What's a reasonable price for a pair of RCA 5693's? (NOS)

post #944 of 2404
I think I paid like $35 or $40 for a nos matched pair
post #945 of 2404

I wouldn't pay more than 15/20$ for a NOS unit.
