Kratos I could only get the first and third tracks to play as well, both tracks sounded good to me. By the way I like your taste in music!

The RCA replaced a Sylvania "Bad Boy".  I was happy with the Bad Boy but man, am I glad I decided to try the grey glass RCA.

 

No more tube rolling for me...

What 12AU7 tube (driver) are you combining with these two gems?

I am substituting the 6SN7 in place of the 12AU7.   I am using a 6SN7 to 12AU7 adapter.

Listened to the first and third too. I heard nothing special . It sounds slightly more metallic with the T1 but I didn't hear anything I can obviously qualifiy of "resonnances" . There's too much reverb' though and higher notes sound even more metallic ( something like sibilance) . It's all i can honestly say.

Kratos, I agree with the others that it's in the recordings, my friend :). I'm not sure what's causing the T1s to show the resonance sound to you more than your HD800s, but I definitely hear the same "ringing" type sound (this is what you meant I hope?) with my FA-011 LEs, LCD 2s and T1s so it's not the T1s that are at fault.

 

Maybe the T1s are just so enjoyable to listen to that you don't expect to hear recording "flaws" ;)
