House of Love

 

I have "House Of Love" on LP; Cassette; CD and another 2-CD set. Which reminds me, I may be pulling my music server outta storage this Saturday. I've some great music on its internal SSD. If I could entertain you through your fasting, I'd start by telling you I cannot remember my password to the Mac mini music server. :o

They are removing my head.

So I have to fast for 24 hours.

No food.

No wine.

No apple pie.

 

But lots of music until then.

 

I made this last night.

Steamed halibut over stir-fried vegetables.

 

Now I'm really torturing myself.

Sorry to hear this Clayton.

My head needs turning upside down too.

You are probably the only one that has them.

BTW some of the early models don't have the big transformers so if some owners think about using the 6336 best check with Glenn first.

This is fine it is just electrons that are missing the plate and hitting the glass

IF the amp is cranked up it will dance with the music sort of neat enjoy it.

 

The bad stuff is a pinkish blue that is inside the plate and sometimes the whole inside

of the tube will glow like this. Usually the tube draws lots of current when this happens.

The tube I said was bad most of the inside lit up and the cathode current meter pinned.


Thanks for the info Glenn.  I'm glad that tube didn't do that in my possession, probably would have spooked me.  Especially to see the current meter spike.

 

The Tung Sol gained a bit more pretty blue glow on the glass top as I ran it more last night.  It's pretty cool looking and I could indeed see it move around a bit with the music.

My 02 cents on rectifiers with the OTL:  I experimented with nearly every type that would work in the amp without blowing up (except for the 596 which is really a 5U4GB), and concluded in the end that the 3DG4 sounds the best in the amp.  Which is logical because it's the tube Glenn chose for the amp so the operating points are where they are supposed to be with that tube.  Anything else will, for the most part, introduce a slightly lower B+ and makes the amp sound a bit less transparent and more "romantic" sounding.  The 5U8C probably has the most drop of them all, it has a really slow lazy sound IMO.  The 5AU4 is the closest to the 3DG4 in sound but the character is a little different, worth trying especially the old ones with the really big plates.

Is a more preferable brand of 3DG4, not sure which brand Glenn will ship with the amp.

My head will be removed in 3 hours. Wish me luck in having it reattached. ;)
