Congrats. Looking forward to your thoughts on them. Remember to get a y-splitter (RCA male-to-3.5/6.2 mm female) so you can hok up your HD600 directly to the TD-11's tube output (without needing the M-Stage (if you so desire). I recommend letting the 7DJ8 tube burn in for a good 20 hours or so, too, Nothing fancy to that process.. just install the tube in the TD-11 and leave the unit on for 20 or so hours. Of course, you can just listen to the unit and you'll be burning in the tube that way as well.
Thanks mate! I'll be sure to report back.
Already have the y-splitter from Monoprice ready to go! Nothing fancy, but cables are something that I'll get into later if at all...
It will be interesting to compare the stock tubes to the Zaerix 7DJ8 and the Genalex Gold Lion ECC88 I have coming in!
Any differences in burning in by simply having the unit on, vs. having music playing through it (headphone plugged in or not)?
