That reminds me of an old Saturday Night Live sketch.

You like the Globes, yes? The Globes are good! biggrin.gif. tongue.gif

Off topic. (As usual)

 

It's a big day.

It actually works.  Needs calibrating, but it works.

I've fallen in love with the Orange Globes too, they're my new favorite...

None of us are always right...except me...well, I thought I was wrong once...but, I was mistaken.wink_face.gif

 

The Orange globes now rate #3 on my favorites list...right after the Bugle Boy 1959 D-getters and the Lorenz 3-mica (of which, I listened to again this weekend and they are not leaving my Lyr until they die...or I do...). biggrin.gif

I always "saved" them because I was afraid I'd never come across another set, but what good is saving them?  Listening is the thing.  If/when they croak, I'll just move down my list or move on to another amp.

Looks pretty cool!  One question; does the fire extinguisher come standard with the amp? very_evil_smiley.gif

I have a pair 1959 d-getters and I like the globes better:)

post #6672 of 8735

I wonder on about 1959 d-getters there is almost no indentifiers on the tubes itself:(  I got them from from Mercedesman. The look like d-getters how to be sure? Only pair that i've gotten with no or little silkscreen.

Just a matter of personal preferences...wink_face.gif  I find the orange globes have a smaller soundstage, but have more resolution ('detail") than the D-getters.  Of course, it's IMHO and YMMV! biggrin.gif

I got three sets of the D-getters (and a set of orange globes) from him and have dealt with him in the past.  As far as I know and have heard, he's got a pretty solid reputation.  I'll take him at his word unless proven otherwise.

My 2 other dealings with him have been great in his defense, I guess I wanted to be blown away by them and I wasn't:(
