The Best of the Crusaders a 4CD rip.

 

I still have the Street Life vinyl from when it was first released, when I was a young lad................

 

Brimar goes well with female vocals as you already mentioned.

I inherited all my Jazz Crusaders/The Crusaders from my parents. They sound great whether I'm house cleaning, relaxing, reading or writing. Yes, Street Life is a monster!

I first met Glenn when I sourced a pair of 6SN7>6DE7 adapters to place in my Woo Audio WA 6 Special Edition amp. Shortly thereafter, he asked if I'd like to audition other tubes and adapters in return for feedback. This was the start of a very satisfying relationship with the designer. And I learned a lot as he continued to solve problems or suggest mods for head-fier's with a wide variety of amps.

After sourcing tubes and adapters from Glenn for a year and a half, last month I decided I would buy my first amp from him in August. But then he released a 6AS7 based OTL amp. When I saw examples purchased by Xcalibur255 and Clayton SF, it was too much, I had to have one!

A couple of weeks in now, sitting on about 80 hours, there's new adventure inside the listening room. Will post new pix Fri/Sat. 


Learning to listen and love... all over again,

I am currently using a different rectifier and drive tube than shown in the pix below. The amp accepts rectifiers 3DG4-5AU4-5V3. This morning I have the General Electric 3DG4 rectifier, Tung-Sol 5998 & Tung-Sol BGRP 6SN7GT installed. The amp is still working its wonder during break-in. Will report back with impressions soon.

I'm almost certain it's at its best with caps, upgrades right now. It's just my patient mindset I suppose, allowing for 750 hours just on general principle.

That's it, I'm done! Since I can't find two nickels to rub together, I refuse to spend another dime on this hobby!

Just to follow up, did you rediscover any interesting glass in this series?
