Currently, I'm in the mood. For tubes... and music. Any delivery system will do. From XIEMs to Full-size cans to Speakers. Complimented with French bubbly. These are post dinner thoughts swirling about my head.

If it doesn't develop a short or leakage it should be OK to use.

Which tester are you using, and how long do you keep the life test on?

 

 

Anything naughty in the fridge?

I own the Mighty Mite VII, Sencore TC28.

I keep the life test on until it stops moving south toward BAD. About 120 seconds.

 

Bad in the fridge--yes.

I got chocolates from Ultrainferno. They're called Ferrero Rocher chocolate balls.

I get those every Christmas in my stockings. Favorite candy:)

The Sencore TC28 has one of the best shorts/leakage tests at 100Khz.

120secs is fine, 60secs is minimum.

I have one as well and a TC162 in my tester collection.

 

I find the FR light actually I need at least 10 to get the needle move to the bad section.

Ooo....have your eye set on a particular unit?

 

Also: cookies, candy, chocolate, tubes. Just wanted to feel included!

 

I've been busy as of late and had little time to just enjoy music aside from some ABBA while mowing and random Pandora channels at work. I hope everyine is doing fine. smily_headphones1.gif

All my gear is in storage, save the iPod/HD650. Really missing the big rig right now. The G-22000 is still in the shop; ran out of money for its release. Things will improve shortly... I've still got my head up!

 

Also, may be forced to sell my new pair of USAF-596s w/matching adapters from WooAudio. If pushed, may have to list the my pair of VT-231/6SN7GT TS-BGRPs...

 

No particular unit in mind yet - will first talk to rosgr63; 2359glenn; Bob; Clayton SF and wotts. biggrin.gif

I'm sure you'll get the 22000 out of hock soon. When will the move be complete?

I'm currently coming to y'all live, from the comfort of my bed. Enjoying a bit of Squeezebox -> 2265B -> HE-6 action. I'm so glad I opted for the 3m headphone cables...

A "PM" to fill you in but still in transition; unexpected repairs set me back... a lot! Ah, the 2265B has got to be a Marantz! wink.gif

 

Maybe September, I'll finally get my own Zeus cabled - hardwired HE-6 from Robert.

post #3072 of 10714
The Marantz it is indeed! I'm still working to get the Glenn OTL installed bedside to use with my T1s. For now, the HE-6 will have to "suffice". ;-)

I'm thinking I'm might have to purse one of the fine 300B options I've seen here recently for the HiFi-Mans. I bet that combo will be excellent!

I bet the OTL sings with the T1 pairing... 600 Ohms? Does the Marantz drive the '6' well? I plan on getting in line for the 300B action during football season most likely.

The T1 is 600 ohm, and is just magical with OTL amps. I have the Valhalla and Crack as well - all are great, but Glenn's amp has something....more.

The 2265 is wonderful for the 6! I switch the SX-1250 and the Marantz back and forth for them. And the Mjolnir. And the Aleph. O_o

And while both big vintage units sing with the HE-6, the W3000ANV are still amazing out of either. Albeit with lower volume knob settings.
