New stock of NOS tubes from ALO? Interesting. Might get them and have them shipped here when my Hifi M8 is ready to go. Won't be for a while though. 

 

How are you getting along with your current tubes?

Please post impressions if ever you will be getting them because I am also interested in getting them. I only have mullards and siemens. So far, I like mullards on almost any kind of song and siemens if I feel I like to have a better sense of space and richness although lacking in bass so I think mullards is better all arounder tube than siemens. :)

Will do mate. 

 

Yeah, for the Siemens, I think we share the same impressions. I use the Siemens tubes when running the TH900 on the PanAm. No lack of bass as the headphone is naturally gifted in that area, but the sense of space and detail matches well. The Russian tubes I like on the T1 and Alpha Dog.

Wish I would experience pan am with those gears too... Between T1 and Th900 which do you think has better synergy with the pan am? :)

Right now, the T1 and the AD. The TH900 is good, but trumped by the T1 in terms of pure enjoyment for me. :) 

 

I might come home to Manila in a year's time. I'll bring some cans.

I think I have the britain ver(white box) and the review on headfonia has the white box also so I think you should get the one with the white box...

Just received a new Pan Am and LCD-XC combo (~100 hours time on each so far), and was wondering if anyone else hears differences playing with the gain switch in terms of sonic signature?

 

I tried it just now and it seemed like there were some subtle differences. The high-gain position seems to have relatively more bass/treble and recessed mids in comparison to the low-gain position, but all of this gear is so new to me that I'm not sure if it's just psychoacoustics.

 

With the switch in low-gain, normal listening levels are around 9-10 o'clock. With the switch in high-gain, normal listening levels in the 8-9 o'clock range. So level matching is almost impossible to do for relevant A/B testing.

 

For reference, the LCD-XC is supposed to be a 22 ohm resistive load.

I didn't notice any difference. I actually tried to, but couldn't find anything. Used a few IEMs and a few full size cans.
