Great news! Matt heard back from Ken Shindo on Wednesday. The Silver Interconnects should arrive by next week and will be bringing my kit home. :wink:

+1

 

Would make for an interesting and exciting first visit to CA, and LA no less. I really should travel more.

:blink: Wait... I only own 2 of the amps in that pix. Better visit Clayton SF.

Or a plane trip to visit Ultra-. He's got an impressive amp room himself (LP wall clock included).

Where did you get that image? - it does not look like a painting from the canon. Maybe a contemporary take or some clever photoshop?

Interesting enough, I came across these on the internet searching for classical Dutch paintings and these headphone studio photographs popped up. Google goes bonkers. Various girls with headphone props in various interpretations of Elizabethan, Dutch, and modern settings.

 

Here's more. :)

I think they're great. I'd love to have a few as wall hangings right above my amplifiers and headphones.

Do the C3g driving a 300B with Lundahl transformers This will be the best setup
Lundahl transformers are a little expensive but worth it. This setup will walk all over a WA5.
Not sure about 5U4 though might use two TV damper diodes instead. Higher power
and lower noise. The ones I plan on using have a cap on top for the cathode.
The number is 42EC4 if you want to look at them on E-Bay. These tubes can handle
1 amp 1000ma at 6500 volts. Electrically Two of these will make a 5U4 look silly.
Plus I can get the 42EC4 for $1.00 each a little more on E-Bay.

Well, the Vandersteen's are in the house! Bi-Wiring may sound better but it is a pain. Now for a couple hundred hours of breaking in.

 

I found 3 RK60's and ordered them I have Glenn adapters on order as well. I am curious how they do vs the 596.

Just use the low cost JJ300Bs they sound decent. With high quality transformers it will still sound better

with JJ300Bs then a amp with lessor transformers and expensive 300Bs.
