Just Got My ASL MKII. ANy Advice Before I Plug It In and Listen?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well, thanks to the helpful advice of many here at Head-Fi I ordered an Antique Sound Labs MKII OTL. I will be using this amp with my HD600's and at least for the time being, an Ipod. Any advice before I plug this thing in this evening, sit back with a glass of wine, and enjoy? I read the instructions regarding plugging everything in before turning it on. As I am totally unfamiliar with tubes, any advice will be greatly appreciated.

By the way, if it sounds as good as I think it will, I will need to open my wallet yet again and buy a SACD player.

Again, thanks to everyone for their advice.

I'm plugging it in right now. I can't wait for a listen this evening.

By the way, when I mentioned I was totally new to tubes, although true in regards to audio amplification, I do own a Nixie Tube Clock which is sitting right here on my desk. Accordingly, I guess I have a little experience with tubes.

Yeah those Nixies really brighten things up but they're a little blurred in the details.

I got it from Kevin Deal at Upscale Audio. Kevin provided great service and quick shipping. He was also willing to answer several of my stupid questions.

By the way, I am listen to a little Jack Johnson through it right now and it sounds incredible. I have two questions though: (1) what does the feedback switch on the back of the amp do? (2) what does the +/- switch do on the power supply? If anyone can answer these two questions I would greatly appreciate it.
