Well i agree about that T-90 is not that far from T1 , in fact in trying to be objective i would rate things like this :

 

T1 => 100 %

 

T-90 => 90/95 %

 

DT 880 => 80/85 %

 

 

Only listened the T-90 in a shop with some A/V receiver as amp .

 

But for the T1 /DT 880 it was at home using a A-GD NFB-17.2 as DAC and SPL Auditor for the AMP part .

 Yep, it is headed my way. :)

 

I look forward to trying it with my T-90's.

What tubes have you tried, and which do you prefer with your T90's?

 

Sorry if this is OT.

Sorry, was reading on my phone and missed your tube posts on the previous page.  Please ignore.

Welcome :beerchug:to the Crack Club. I would recommend Tung Sol 5998 + Mullard Ecc82 (12AU7) with the T90's. For the 12AU7's I have tried only the Mullard & the stock tube & the Mullard is far better. On a Crack high I ordered 6 more types of 12AU7's couple of days back :o & should be getting them next week. Plus I have some 6SN7 tubes (from my DarkVoice 336) , so I also ordered a 6SN7 to 12AU7 adapter to use those tubes. Will post which one pairs best with T90's.

 

Did you get them with stock tubes ?

Thanks for the input on the tubes.  I will check those out, and I look forward to reading your thoughts when the others arrive.

 

The tubes coming with the unit are stock.   So the stock Crack tubes are pretty mediocre?

They are not bad with the HD600 ( which you have), but the treble may be bit edgy with the T90's, YMMV. I would suggest check out the stock tubes first before upgrading.

I'm wondering has any one compared the HE 4 with the T90 

 

I have the HE-4s too. Been thinking about side-grading to the T90, mainly for the soundstage, although imaging and resolution on the HE-4 is superb. I hope the T90 can match.

Yea I wonder honestly how the two compare, the T90 should be wider... but as you mentioned the HE 4 should be deeper and very clear... well at least you feel the T90 is a side grade! I had the DT 880, so I'm hoping the HE 4 is an upgrade. sounds like it should b

Wise advice. Learn the sound of the tubes included then begin your search based on what you want to hear.

Hi Punit:

Where are you ordering these tubes from? I am assuming there is no change in the circuitry required, just replace the stock tubes with these, right?

Definitely.  I won't be rolling any tubes in the crack in the near term.  Just curious.

Please see link in my post above for all compatible tubes. P.M me for any questions, glad to help. I order mostly from e-bay.
