df96 tube compatibility:

 

ok, i

- compared pin layout of df91 and df96 as posted on radiomuseum.org

- did some basic measurements

- had a look at some schematics where df91 / df96 were used

 

to answer the obvious question in a very specific way, here are my first listening impressions with the

 

lorenz df96 - philips dl92 combo:

 

another excellent sounding lorenz tube and a nice match with the philips. what comes me in mind to descibe the sound is not only sweet and relaxing, but also great clarity, great highs and detail, and how to say,  speed and dynamics!

 

the ability to react to changes in volume or dynamics is like a cat or tiger lying around and than ... suddenly with unbelievable speed getting fast, run, catch .. then it's quite, slow again, relaxing, as nothing had happened.

 

so let's give them some burn in time, amp is working, no problems, no adapter needed, but to find lorenz df96 .....

where: here and everywhere:


the opening session was here on my desk,

- df96 doping and will work instead of df91 check passed

- the df96 herewith gets the 'GG proved and permit (no guarantee)' label to take part in the tu-05 neverending tube dream set contest

 

how:

 

first discipline starting now:

 

- world wide df96 tube hunting contest (no weapons allowed, take care of environment, safe wildlife, protect animals)

 

second discipline starting asap:

 

tube rolling (virtual, not off table, tu-05 mandatory)

GG!!!!!! Thank you for taking one for the team! It is so wonderful that we now have DF96's to add to the stable. This is something that I am going to be very interested in hearing about over the coming days. Please try to update about how it works with the amp as soon as you can! (no funny smells or shorts or stuff like that!)

This is wonderful though, thank you!

I sincerely doubt that this was an allusion to your personal hygiene and Lederhosen. wink_face.gif

 

More likely it's referring to electrical shorts and that pungent aroma given off when an electronic component starts to melt itself.

Just a cursory glance on ebay produced this lovely lot of DF96's, fill yer boots!
http://www.ebay.ca/sch/i.html?_trksid=p2047675.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.XDF96+TUBE&_nkw=DF96+TUBE&_sacat=0&_from=R40

BTW... Ediswan are a Britsh brand who also went under the name "Mazda" meant to sound very good. I know there are five DF96's left as I asked the seller. I have some Mazda arriving any day now so I won't be going for these.

Also Two Diamond base Telefunkens are left, they look immaculate!

But the real sleeper is the Box of Phillips tubes in one of the listings! They are in fact Valvo, made in Germany and with a phillips label, looks like Military use by the packaging and a steal at the price! Looks like he has quite a few for sale!

Happy hunting, I will pass at the moment as i have one set of Mazda's and one set of Telefunken's on their way to me so I don't want to be greedy! biggrin.gif

Oh and Andy... How did you get that picture of me?????????????????? blink.gif and spot on about the smells Andy!
