I can maybe bring you some 2399/5998 tubes, one of the best there are. I still have 3 pairs for sale ;-) (pm me if you're interested)

 

Now about the power lines. Don't overestimate this. If you live in the Us with a bad powergrid in a city with 10.000.000 people in an apartment block with 20 floors and 500 apartments, you might indeed not get good power.

In europe quality is much higher and you can easily use an extension cord in stead of the wall socket (unless you have a really bad grid or an oooooold house). I'm not saying a good power cable doesn't do anything (Mine are being hand made as we speak) but the effects are minimal around here imho

Like all tube amps it sounds best when warmed up, starting from 30 minutes it improves

Maybe you should build a sauna just for your tubies to see if the sound improves.

If it wasn't for the fact that it's quite a bit of work to make them, I would be crazy enough to do that. normal_smile%20.gif

 

But you don't need brownies, of course. You need vlaai!

Beer and vlaai go really well together, My girlfriend brought me some Tripel Karmeliet from Brussels and it was pretty good with some mighty Dutch appelvlaai. :) 

 

Just a reminder, there is still room for some more participants!

Yay! My B2's and Fiio E6 arrived at my uncle. Picking them up tomorrow evening, and then giving the B2's around 40+ hours burn-in (with the Jlab burn-in page), so.. I'll be able to enjoy them starting Sunday.

 

Btw, would any actually want that 3ft Monster iCable 800? Or should I find a use for the cable myself?

You don't have to worry about burning in IEMs. Large speakers and tube gear MAYBE. IF they'd change after 40 hours of use the manufacturers would have a huge problem with inconsistant products. Think about it. :) In my opinion, it's purely your own ears and brain you're burning in. ;)

Still the meet will be held close to where my family lives so still interested. Wonder if some people from my last meet will be able to make it. Greetings, Anouk,

Hey girl, how are you?! Long time no see ;-) Not much around on the boards either. So, are you going? Unfortunately nobody dropped a bomb on Weert so so far I won't be making it. Too bad as I could've picked you up and on top of that I just received my Cardas balanced cable for the HD600 which works wonders so far.

 

Have fun people and drink LOTS of that Belgian beer evil_smiley.gif
