REVIEW AND COMPARISON: Eddie Current Balancing Act and SUPER 7 - Page 28

post #406 of 410

Glad you are enjoying it the S7. Craig comes from the pro audio world of UREI / JBL, so most of his stuff doesn't sound as colored as other tube amps. As you said, you can throw whatever music you have at it. You'll have plenty of fun rolling different 6SN7 or 7N7 tubes.

 

The Vintage Moth 2A3 is really nice. It's better in some ways to the current EC stuff.

my super 7 is coming in at the end of the week, pretty excited.

 

going to try to mate this with my hd800 and lcd x.    I think the lcdx is more similar to the hd800 than the either the lcd2 or lcd3. I have some 6sn7 lying around from my other amps that I can mix and match, but want to start the search for the ideal set.   It would be great to find one tube set that works optimally with both anyone have any suggestions to share?

Any word on whether the current S7 comes in the lower profile casework (that the 2A3 has) ?

I don't think so.  I think they have stopped making them.  At least for now.  I'm currently in the process of trying to repair mine and inquired about the possibility of just ordering a replacement board and Craig responded that they are not being made anymore so it would be disproportionately expensive to have a single board made.  So I continue to troubleshoot.  Not to mention, I don't think it could go any lower profile without changing to smaller transformers, or moving them to the outside of the chassis.

 

And just a note that my amps damage is due to my own negligence, not of any fault of craftsmanship.
