Wow what kind of tube is that next to the equipment rack? The big black one on the floor? It's glowing an awful lot. Looks like it tests well :).

Probably some sort of Cavelli fire amp.

I understand Alex doesn't use power tubes in his designs so that must be a butt load of 12AX7's, say, about 200?:regular_smile :

Well thank goodness he has the power conditioner. That's a lot of distortion potential already hehe xD

My humble setup. Finally got back my HD600 the other day for me to try out the Vali and Bifrost.

Picked up these for £40 at a charity shop, the CD-52 SE needs a new CDM4 Gear but thats cheap and easy to replace. Both have visible scratches but for the price I can't complain. To pair with some Mission 702E's which i'll be getting for £50 at the end of the month.

Snow is finally melting, but off today and am without power. Thankfully the gas logs are still going and I've got a little humble setup to keep me warm.

That's a great little rig - I keep telling myself to try using my iPad mini as a source, but I've never gotten around to it.

 

But I've turned on the lights at your house!

Yeah, it's actually quite good, though I prefer the Note 3 as a source. The Magnum is actually quite good as an amp for the HD650, too.

And yeah, I played with the brightness on my Note 3, but wasn't happy with the washed out look it got. I ended up liking it better than the iPhone 5S pic I got in the end. That was with a ISO of 400 and a white balance of 'cloudy'. I'm just happy I found an acceptable low light setting for the Note 3. It's day time HDR pics on the other hand are fantastic.

EDIT:

'Noise' is probably the word I should have used.

That CD52 is itching for mods, not so great stock but v.good once rebuilt and modded, pick your poison with the analogue output stage be it rebuilt opamp filter circuit, omitted muting transistors or omit the whole opamps and straight feed into a SRPP stage with white cathode follower sch.
