OMG. A Viking Range and New OTL. Heaven.

Olives or pickled cocktail onions, and a twist.

I'm ready to replace my old 1930s stove with a Viking Range. A small Viking Range. But not yet.

Viking make a little 24" range that is sweet for small space..oven is really efficient too.

 

It would be good to hear the new and your old OTL and maybe my 6CL6 Spud, which is also a simple TV tube based thing...

I'd also be happy for you to try my Shigaraki amp in your system with your matching CD anytime.

Not sure if you have the Shigaraki DAC, but that combo with your Zu's might be special too...cheers!

I also have another Bendix tube that tested good in all conditions on my Sencore tube tester but will not auto adjust the bias correctly in the amp that I am using. Once one of the Bendix tube wear out in the amp I will switch out the remaing Bendix to something else I have in my collection. I am planning for the future where I will still have new tubes to explore.

P.S. I am going to explore something wonderful at PS Audio this weekend. :ksc75smile:

Clayton, my house in Bernal is small but the amp/sq.ft. density is much lower than your pad! 

I'm happy to host you and others to evaluate the New OTL.

I have a Viking range, sharp knives and a cocktail shaker so we should be ok!

I'd come just so I could:

 

- Meet you

- Hear the new OTL

- See the sharp knives glistening at an angle

- The Viking range working its wonder

- AND ABOVE ALL.... I wanna see the fog! :ksc75smile: Does it really look like it does on TV?

SO, your invitation is in the mail...almost...I still have to go to the letterpress to make something special for you!

 

This is from the dining room. That is the 'stick the night of the last 49's home game. If there is fog you will see it!

Sounds great! I am currently using a MHDT Lab Havana DAC with a wonderful curent production JJ 6386 buffer tube. It is very sweet sounding paired with the Shigaraki CD. The CD does not upsample. Very true to the sound.

 

Ah. And the view from my living room window.

You know the fog is in.

I like MHDT Lab...a bunch of smart music lovers...super passionate. Their stuff is musical for sure.

The Shigaraki DAC is NOS but OTT (non oversampling but over the top)!

 

I do love the amp...it's been powered up in my living room for 6-7 years.

 

Looks like it could make toast in the mornings...

AppleMark

 

 

Back in 2010, I tried to buy that amp but wasn't able to. For some reason when the guy offered it for sale I couldn't respond to his emails so I missed out. I wanted it so badly. I love it's looks. I only can dream of its sound.

Never feel left out. Maybe in left field, but never left out. You are the inspiration whenever there in none. Wha? :)

Never, we won't allow it...Shigaraki ware is a pottery produced in Shiga Prefecture in Japan.

It is used for everyday objects. I will find you a Shigaraki plate for your cookies so that you are never left out.

You have a Garber too! I thought you were kidding when you said 75 amps!

The 4707 is sublime. I don't understand it. It has $30 worth of parts and a nice PSU...epitome of KISS.

post #8636 of 10868

I am only familiar with Noritake, need to research a bit more about Shigaraki, excuse my ignorance.

When in Japan I never wonder anywhere far but the bars and restaurants, sorry........

 

Clayton you are my inspiration for audio gear and food, what more can I ask?

Yes the only problem with Tokyo is that when you wander out of one bar you end up in another until finally you end up in a Ramen shop...if you are lucky.

OH MY! Upon seeing these pix, I immediately reached for the Black Pearl Gaiwan - Ming Dynasty period design (1368-1644). Old reflexes... they die hard! :D

Am I allowed to listen to Dolly Parton Blue Smoke?
