Well..even if he would do that..i still wouldnt win..as i never ever won anything without doing something for it..as with my luck in games someone else with just 1 post more would win.

like the lucky lotteries frank did until now... With two of them i was the poster before or after the winning number of posting.. Oh well..i am very lucky in the health and love department wink.gif

Still doesn't change the fact that you have a wonderful BW that we would all love to have. And you will in due course have the copper venom. Not bad if you ask me. smily_headphones1.gif

Correction..no Venom yet..its on the 'to do' list for this year biggrin.gif
And i have been kind of low budgetty also not so long ago..having a mstage and a he300 when we just got a new house and unexpectly a beautiful baby girl was born.... My budget wasnt enough to buy more audio wise...i sold all my EXPENSIVE 2 channel stuff to help buy all the stuff we wanted in our new home..priorities at its best!!

but how i loved that little rig!!! So i know how it is to start small and humble..but eventhough i never ever got anything from anyone or won anything or never had relatives who passed away with money i have everything i have now...by studying my butts of and working hard, and be the best in what i do for a living...and am lucky it pays off now.. wink.gif

I bet it does....Top cable indeed.

Frank has offered a prize draw for existing customers last months and I am the lucky one who has won the BIG prize  :biggrin:

 

Today my prize has arrived. I have set them up for a quick test and I can confirm that they are all functioning well.

 

I am now running-in them for at least 100 hrs before I carry out a detailed review.

 

As to the HF-5 I did not use the stock 12AU7 from Full Music (made in China) instead I changed it to RCA Grey Plate 12AU7.  I also added two damping rings onto the 12AU7 (the red rings shown in the photo).  Later I will change the stock opamp to LM-49860NA and add a MKP filtering cap to the power supply of this opamp which should make the SQ more smooth.

 

As to the Gain of the HF-5 I pushed the L switch to its "ON" position which increases the output gain by +10dB and this is more than enough power to push the HE-500.  The volume is normally at 11 o'clock position for music listening.    

 

I have also tried this HF-5 with my HD-800 and LCD-X and they can drive both CANs like a charm.  I was surprised there is more than sufficient power to drive the low sensitivity HD-800 :wink_face:

 

I have uploaded a photo to show what Frank has given out: 

 

 

Lastly I have to thank Frank for offering the prize which I am a lucky one who had won it :biggrin:.
