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

Road trip, from LA to 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.

The 596 is a better tube but they are now unobtainum so there is only the RK60 that looks like that

The RK60 is more like a 5U4G and a 596 is like a 5U4GB.

Regarding the USAF/JAN-596, we have a real hum-dinger! While our collective interest in the glass did shove it over in to unobtainium territory, decent surplus remains. The challenge for me as I see it is, how do we find and alert those who have them, without tipping-off dealers and speculators that want some of our action... and a body part?

:popcorn: 

 

We should be our own '596' Collective, to pursue and protect our interests.

With the seeming explosion in Tube interest it will be something to see what other tubes have a run on them. I wonder if some of the current production tubes will be able to provide the sonic benefits that are ascribed to the ever scarcer NOS?

plus 1 for that idea.
