I am using a Windows 7 system and play only flac files through a Schiit Gungnir feeding into a Little Dot MkIII ver. IV board.
Pure silver litz wire interconnect between DAC and Amp. and then in to HD-650's with Mobius 2 cable.
I have read almost every page of this forum and have acquired many different paris of EF95 tubes. They all have their strengths and weaknesses.
Many thanks to Dept_of_Alchemy
for his original guide. He got me started. I am currently using Sovtek 6H30EB Power Tubes
and have tried almost all of the EF95 tubes that he has listed. My favorites were Mullard 8100's and Voshkod 6ZH1P-EV's.
I recently got a pair of Tesla 6F32's put together in 1956 and I must say that they blow away the former. A box of 10 for $40. (Nice Find)
They have more extended,articulate bass, smoother,lusher mids and extended top end with No Sibilance.
They also seem to give better spatial cues, sound stage and height. Anyone else with the same thoughts?
What else can I do the further tweek this system? I can tweek a Big system in many subtle ways but need help with this stuff.
I have no intentions of changing anything, the sound is SO GOOD that I am at that point I was with my big system.
Huge money in for very small gains, I studied power cords and then bought a custom made cord from a guy in the States.
Put a 3 foot cord on the Little Dot only and Huge difference! Just thought I would throw this out to you guys and see what comes back?
Can we get the First page of this Forum brought up to date by Dept. of Alchemy? Is he still around and active?
Can we fill in the "Red" areas?
Waiting for some feedback.
