They use the same tubes as Schiit Lyr, correct?   e.g. 6DJ8, 6922, ECC88

I sold my 337 and my he500 in december..so last month and this month i am totally headfi'less..and trust me..thats hard!!
But in febr my bliss will start..the amp will be at my doorstep around second week of febr also..and then the burn in begins..as its totally opamp based and it has HUGE caps and powersupply i understand..so they need some time to burn in right..gilbert told me it takes around 2 months..non stop! Oh well..i cant switch it off anyway..i dont have a switch on it to do that..it will be powered on 24-7 as then the amp will sound on its best i have heard..so the builder decided not to include a on-off switch.. wink.gif

O ANOTHER NOTE: for all the US based fellow headfi'ers here..just got news about the extreme weathers there..hope u and ur family are okay my friends! Best of luck for u guys who live in the area where the extreme bad weather occurs..i heard that on certain places it reaches as low as -51 degrees celcius!!! OMG! eek.gif

I hope Fahrenheit and not Celcius :blink:

These guys didn't have to deice their wings to engage in aerial combat, during the snowfall. Although I think their headphones fell off.

Saw a video on BBC where they chucked boiling water into the air and it froze before it hit the ground! :eek: You folks have to take care with those temperatures! If anyone is running super cooled experiments, now might be a good time! :D

Thanks zoom25... Yeah i really hope it will be as stellar as i expect it to be.... As the rig i sold was extremely good already..i will keep the expressions that i had with that rig to compare it with my new rig... The bar is really high! But again reading about the guy who is buIlding my amp makes me believe it could be something special i will be getting..and in future i can easily transform it i to a battery powered/solar energy powered amp...i just have to sent it back to him and pay..is that green or what? biggrin.gif

And u guys all know the builder of my new headphone..LFF ..who also made the world happy with his excellent Paradox headphone..So u can say i am on a skyhigh slope ready to dive into a deeeeeeeeep unknown swimmingpool..but if my intuition is right (as it was with my 337 and he500..which i both bought without listening!) and if i did my homework right..then it will be a extremely satisfying and LOOOOOONg swim.. biggrin.gif

I better not kiss the headphone as its real wood..it could damage the protection..and even worse..the amp is stainless steel..and we all know if u kiss that it gives stains on the surface..so better only look at it and listen to it biggrin.gif

Just heard the powersupply case will also have a illluminated blue circle in front...for esthetics sake..so it paires well with the front of the amp..as they will be placed side by side. wink.gif
Now i think of it..need to make room for those two cases..AND the PLC thingee FX2 conditioner. Will be crowdy on my desk next to my lappie. biggrin.gif

My Macbook Air is only 11" and it's 11 inches of pure awesomeness. Kinda what I'm used too :rolleyes:

 

I use Flactunes to convert and it's really not that much work.
