I'm talking about fire breathing, give me a ticket red!

I will admit, I have never pulled the trigger on the Jabens because of that bilious candy-apple red...

i've home anodized bike parts before and it came out well.  there are many sites on the net for the avid DIY'r to get started on home anodizing using nearly any color you could imagine

 

i was drooling over woodies but this has got me thinking now :)

I was thinking about going for those cups, however the cup takes the driver in the sleeve, not a liberated driver :|  Which means my 125i's would still be in plastic :( Plus there's a built-in spacer, then the bowls for it...  They should advertise them as "If you hate bass, these are the cups for you!" lol

I always think it would be nice to ditch the spacer and make wooden sleeves to slip into the outer cup. Some folks have advised using oven-cleaner to ditch the red as well...but that's a lot of effort just to get a pair of aluminum outer cups..

Hey guys, received the Ear+HD today. To my surprise when I turned it on (without a source at the input) I have a terrible popping/interference noise at 0 volume. Then I realized with the RS's plugged in either high/low-Z I had to turn the volume to the max to hear at a relatively mid level volume. Then I noticed the 1x12AX7 tube was not glowing at all.

Aout an hour later I returned home and turned the amp back on (12AX7 still not glowing), but through either the high/low-Z the volume was correct this time, but still have terrible noise at 0 volume, and no glowing from the 12AX7.

Has anyone experienced these problems before with this amp?

Can the 12AX7 be causing all of these problems? I also don't have another to swap out.

Any help/thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated being this is a brand new amp and I couldn't wait to receive it, its pretty upsetting, as of now. Thanks.

Great that you got your MAD Ear, but sorry about your problems.

 

Sure sounds like that tube is not working .

 

e-mail the good Dr. right away and explain your situation.

Sounds like the tube might be toast. Do you have any other 5751 or 12AX7 tubes to pop in?

Thank you, I e-mailed Lloyd and he also said it sounds like the tube, so he is sending me a new one. Do you have this constant popping/interference/distortion noise with no input at 0 volume?

BTW, with the volume turned up I can't hear the noises, and the amp sound very sweet after listening to it for only an hour. I can't wait for it to burn-in, I can just imagine how much more sweeter it will sound. Thanks.

I hop that is the problem, so I don't need to go through the shipping back and forth.

Unfortunately I don't have another tube to replace it with.

Its a constant crackling noise, popping/interference/distortion.

Is this what happens with a bad tube? Thanks.

no noise or interference here, what so ever. The amp is dead silent

Yeah, like I said this is even happening without an input source, so I hope its just the tube.

Blue or Purple xD label it with "PS1000 by Justin Bieber LE" sure you will get a lot of love as well as hate xD
