What about beer vs wine?
Hey guys, hope I can get some good opinions. I am currently running a Burson SL with my newly acquired T1. I like it but I'm wondering if there are other amps like the regular Soloist that would give me a bigger performance boost. I would like to stay away from tubes (WA2) but I'm open to suggestions.
I imagine that would sound amazing but if I'm going tubes I would just sell the Soloist and get the WA2. I'm truthfully worried how bright the tubes glow in a dark room when I watch movies and how warm the WA2 would get.
Home alone yesterday afternoon so I pulled out the big guns for my BHCrack a vintage 12au7 Mullard and Gec 6as7g brown base. Put on the T1's sat back and relaxed listening to some Diana Krall and Melody Gardot, just wonderful so much detail and body to vocals and instruments. I really wonder just how it could sound any better just so vivid and natural.
I picked up two straight brown bases tested strong one marked GEC one Osram for $110 delivered.
Normally tested used they seem to fetch around $100 a tube. NOS available on ebay but very high prices.
Just checking ebay there have been several over the last couple of months both round and straight brown base types they have ended up going for around £75 each.
I'm considering re-cabling my T1's and was looking for feedback from anyone who may have done it. I'm very happy with how mine sounds now...just looking to get the best sound signature possible.
I've investigated the Moon Audio Black Dragon V2 cable and the Aphrodite Cu29 Zeus cables. If anyone has re-cabled with either one of those (or any other cable) I'd very much appreciate your take on the differences before and after.
No I have not seen any used listed as pairs, but often I have noticed the same seller will have more than one listed so always an option to contact and offer a buy now price for both.
Has anyone heard the T1's mated with a Yulong D100 MKII amp/dac?
Also, is it a somewhat fair assessment to label the T1 as a good middleground between the sound of the D7000 and the HD800???
Also, what is the going rate on the used market for the T1?
I can only answer your 3rd question, but they seem to go second hand for around $900 in my experience.
