New stuff going on in my main setup:

 

 

 

 

 

I have other tubes to roll into the Electra, but I'm going to wait a week or two so I can get a better idea as to how it sounds stock.

 

-Edit-

 

Oh yeah, the headphones plugged in are SR009's.  Forgot to take a pic of that.

If you're selling the audio-gd and the darkvoice... what are you planning on replacing them with?
[/quote]
that's what I replaced it by:

Nfb5 to the 10
Darkvoice 336 to the la Figaro 339

Recabled everything balanced too, just waiting for the sennheiser plugs to arrive wink.gif


Ah, looks nice man.  How do you think going balanced affects your cans?

post #14124 of 21124

How do you think going balanced affects your cans?

 

Better noise rejection due to the amplifier cancelling out noise that is present on both copies of the signal.

Wolfetan, thanks! The cable is from Artemis Audio, not as widely known as the likes of ALO, Moon Audio, etc. Looks awesome in person, sounds significantly better than stock, and didn't cost me an arm and a leg!

Damn, their website is under construction. So no looky at cables for mefrown.gif

post #14126 of 21124

That Electra is huge, bigger than I thought.

 

It's no driver 8 rig but just some small updates today. tongue.gif

 

 

Next purchase 007mk1's and BHSE. KGSSHV is WIP atm so will post pics again.


Enjoy.

New source for my rig. Came home on vacation and brought my rig with me because I was going to be gone for a week and a half and ended up getting a free hand me down Conrad-Johnson Cd player from my dad that is worth more than the rest of my rig put together. He said he was having trouble with the mechanism skipping, sometimes not playing all the tracks, etc and it was bugging him so he just bough a new cd player. Haven't had any problems with it yet and it sounds really good to me. Is it possible to have too many tubes in your chain (tube cd player analog out -> tube pre-amp -> tube amp)? Conrad-Johnson sounds considerably better than using the D1's DAC so I don't think it would have any adverse affect and I am really happy with it, but just curious.

One can never have too many tubes. :)
