post #4801 of 7760

Does anyone know roughly what is the serial number of a new T1 on the market at the moment?

 

Also how old is a set with the serial number of roughly 2000?

 

Thank you.

Thanks!

Got my T1 about a month ago and it was an open box.  Don't know if that means it's a little more dated than what you would buy off the shelf today.  But for reference sake mine is 13181...or something close to that.  It's definitely in the 13's.

umm some guy on ebay that put a quad up. me and some1 else got them for 350$ for all of them. i ended up with 5 tubes because one of them wasn't new, so i got 2 used and 3 new in all. other guy got 4 new. and some1 else bought a pair from him as well, but one ended up defective.

 

they all work fine, all the new ones where actually NIB too which is nice, and ones a curved base biggrin.gif

 

just bought another curved base so i have 6 in total.

I've never seen any kind of situation where modifying a product would not void the warranty. I can only assume Beyer is the same.

 

If you decide to do this mode, be VERY careful! The advantage of the Tesla 1 design is that you can use fewer windings with SMALLER wire in the driver (one of the reasons the impedance of the drivers is over 600 ohms). If you break the wire or it comes off, Good luck on trying to reattach it bigsmile_face.gif

Peter is right Drew is authorized to re-cable any Beyer and it does not void the warranty. I had spoke to Pete Carini at beyer in NY about that and Drew is the man and it wont void the warranty so its all good.

Pete Carini is the guy you want to talk with at Beyer.  I know Moon is authorized and Aphorodite may be also but not sure. I know Drew is for sure.
