It's over. All done. Portable and home. All done, for real now :). Not even Jude could convince me to upgrade. And in case you were wondering, the changes are the tubes. Went from the stock RCA 6080s and generic Chinese 6H9Cs to a matched quad of RCA 6AS7Gs (Black Plate) and a matched pair of Tung-Sol 6SL7GTs. Seriously though. I don't usually make claims this grandiose, but this is it for me.

 

 

I'll post more pics of absolutely everything soon, including my endgame portable setup.

Far too many "I started and will probably never finish" projects...

 

Somewhere in the back of the pile I had this ridiculous idea to build a 3-channel b22 but in a config similar to Jan Meier's active balanced config, using (of all things) a hacked M3 to create the necessary signals. I've got all the pieces... but they're just sitting there.

I've made a few tweaks, mainly moving things around my living.  Both pics are from the same room.

hodgjy,

 

Is that a WA6? How do you find the TEAC in comparison to the Woo?

That's a WA3.  They are in completely different leagues.  The WA3 is warm, tubey, romantic, and a little fuzzy.  The TEAC is clean, transparent, yet very musical.

Got DSD DAC for around two months. So I order all-in-one PC for playing song only.

After listen all files as DSD format (PCM to DSD on-the-fly) for two months, I can't switch back to listen 16/44.1 again. Reason is that, imho,  DSD format make PCM files more smooth and less digital. Very relax

After only recently getting into the headphone side of my listening habit (!) at Christmas, I have no settled on my 4th amplifier, and my second (and probably last!) set of headphones. Very happy with how this sounds at the moment.


Staying away from eBay for a LONG time! Except maybe to replace this incredibly old and manky desk!!!
