the cossor gz37 seems like a nice upgrade. 

 

and the 422A was the most noticeable change in the tubes. like all the other really good tubes i've heard, its really hard to find any flaws in its sound, its like they're near perfect.

Did you gt your on ebay? - its kinda hard to find these, through google search anyway. 

 

You should take a pic of the Glenn and the GSX beside each other, they are both black with silver fronts i bet they look really good side by side.

This was my reaction to DG's unboxing... complete with giant foam noodles!

:wink_face: If I'm pulling out Long Playing records tonight, you know what that means?! That's right! I finally located the missing TT tonight! I was gonna wait till Fri/Sat, but with all the excitement in today's thread, I went for it. So time to shake it up with, well, The Cars and "Shake It Up", Funk Inc "Chicken Lickin' ", Side Effect "Goin' Bananas" and Astrud Gilberto "The Shadow of Your Smile." 

 

Been searching for two months - twice in the last four days. Turns out, it was the only audio piece NOT inside all the boxes labeled audio. Rather, "Kitchen Essentials"........... at the very bottom! Each time I looked through each and every box, with that one I'd dig just over half way then close it up and re-tape. :rolleyes:

 

Tonight, I emptied ALL of the contents with each box and found it on the bottom. So, we're in for a overnight test drive from 0100 hrs to 0400 hrs.

I'm relieved to hear the TT is safe! I'll give The Cars a listen as well to celebrate. beerchug.gif

Congrats DG! It looks really good. I PM'ed Glenn to check for an OTL myself next to my 300b amp.

Have you tried orthos with it?

post #6310 of 10619

Btw, I will be putting lots of stuff up for sale this weekend, it's that time of the year. Anyone interested in a Beyerdynamic T70 that's as good as new and has hardly been used? :rolleyes:

I wasn't at all trying to be punctual, but I did flip the switch @ 0100 hrs to warm things up a bit. It's common for me to book my own listening sessions. And since I have an idea when I'll be sitting-in, I'll warm up the rig some 2 to 4 hours ahead of time. If I get busy and a delayed start, then the sweeter the juice. 

 

I lack "Candy-O" on vinyl; CD only. If the new rig sounds okay with vinyl inside the room, I'll order it Friday... Mo-Fi or sumthin'. What I'm really looking forward to is hearing the limited edition 45rpm of Astrud Gilberto I got. Her sweet and delicate feather light vocals :wink:have a decay to die for on some tracks. Tubes & Astrud just go together... 'Clayton SF' knows what I'm talkin' 'bout! :wink_face:

:D Not the full rig but bits & pieces for testing the new toys only. Space is so tight, I'm processing records in the kitchen and then walk them over to the listening area. Right now though, I'm being challenged - an unexpected hum between Preamp and TT.

 

I will likely retire for the morning and sort it out after lunch. Didn't get too far with evals tonight.

Maybe the TT wants some of that coffee and food in the kitchen?
