post #14131 of 19183

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. :)

How did you know I was busy for every night re-cabling my headphones, including the MSPro which was quite a freaking-out experience!

 

Shoot me a pm and you can come and try them out ;)

They make one for the AKG K7XX series, i was thinking about giving it a try, anyone have any real experience with this series? It'd be really cool in a black and blue combo!

I'd hate to find the microphonic, staticy, or weak tube in that hot mess.

The tube testers must be out of view. normal_smile%20.gif

What are those things, anyway? Are they some kind of joke mockup? Please tell me those aren't actually amps.

post #14144 of 19183

Probably mono blocks.  Need lots of tubes to get the power needed to amplify.  Tube amps with two or fewer power tubes can usually only muster 2 watts into 4 ohms.  Need lots of power tubes to crank out 50 watts into 8 ohms.

Too many tubes lol, got four in the DAC, 6 in the preamp, 4 in each monoblock booster amp that end up feeding the monoblock amps that go to my speakers, each with three tubes.  I'm tubed all the way! So what's that, 24 total?  Nah, never too many L3000.gif
