I usually do not say this, as you never know if someone will hear things the same way that you do because of all of the variables.....but trust me....you are really gonna dig this amp with your RS1i

 

I have only been listening to mine for about 5 days, and everyday I am so looking forward to the evening when I can sit down and listen to some rock & roll.

 

Last night I wanted to hear some female vocals on this combo, so I listened  Alanis Morrisette....Jagged Little Pill.....Good Lord, did she sound fantastic.

 

I have not even tried my AKG Q701 with this amp yet.....can't get myself to take my RS1i off with this combo.

 

Like I said before, the differences seem very subtle at first, but the more you listen the better it gets.....I am not sure that I even want to touch the stock tubes, to be honest....    :-)

 

ENJOY!....Please let us know your impressions

Thank you very much! I understand how you don't want to say that I will love the amp being that we all hear/like different sounds, so for you to say something like that only makes me want to hear it more.

I e-mailed Lloyd today because on the MAD website it states 1x 5751/12AX7/ECC83 tubes, so I'm wondering if it comes with these three different tubes so you can hear which one you prefer.  Which tube out of these three is in your amp?

Can anyone who purchased the Ear+HD from MAD tell me if it comes with all three (1x) tubes to try? 

I haven't received a reply from Lloyd about this question yet, this is why I'm asking. Thanks.

mine has the 5751

The 12AX7 & ECC83 are different names for the same tubes.

5751 is a less popular lower gain version (mostly JAN) that is interchangeable.

Lloyd seems to use the 5751 tubes, not sure why. Nonetheless his amps sure sound sweet!

You guys can back off discussing the RS1 (with buttons) now (from the FS).  I'll let you know how it sounds in a few days.  FInally back in the Grado fold again.

 

Just need to receive them and transfer the funds ;)

Thanks for the info, I didn't know the 12AX7/ECC83 were the same, thanks. 

Which one do you use? Also what model is yours, I notice it has 4 tubes? 

What does (JAN) mean?

That's a MAD Ear HD Super 2 - a little more powerful/versatile with a separate power supply.

It uses different output tubes (EL84/6BQ5) than the MAD Ear +.

AppleMark

 

JAN = Joint Army Navy = tubes made for military use...

Actually he just had them serviced (via Grado) and has a receipt for the service (which I'll be getting) - so I'm pretty sure these will be pristine.

How's this for excellent service.  He's shipping first (told me not to pay until they arrive), and also said that if I don't like them - to just return them (my shipping cost).

 

Confidence in the product!
