So, for those who are lived in my region and interested in the tube cleaning kits, you can buzz me now.

 


great that you finally got them. so everybody has received the cleaning kits now but nobody is cleaning tube pins. i would be so happy to get a feedback that, sorry, if the cleaning kit works as good for you as i have tested and promised you, no chance to relax before!

 

EDIT:

 

btw, great picture, excellent light and exposure. Did you one of these white mini studio photo boxes with lights??

at the moment i am listening to sarah k. - no cover - chesky records - 24bit 96khz with the rft df97 - philips dl92 combo.

 

the rft df97 has nicely settled - the harshness has gone - so the spacious, 3d like, highly detailed presentation together with the philips dl92 bass and bass texture is near to perfection.

 

but .. it's (nearly) the first time but the first time with this tube combo that i listen to a hd recording. the effortless, spacious and detailed presentation is remarkable, no headphone to hear, no amp, no player, just a sphere of unbelievable realistic music in front of and around you, no 'wish you were here' but a 'sounds like i were there'.

 

just switched to rickie jones - pirates - 24bit 88.2khz - the voice, the bass impact, the feeling for the space .., wow, never heard it that good.

 

so now after, no, better in parallel to tube hunting, hd recordings are needed. ianmedium, could you repost the link of the company where you buy and download your recordings?

thanks a lot!

just downloading - chicago symphony orchestra - fritz reiner - rimsky korsakow - scheherazade - living stereo - from hdtracks.com

 

edit:

 

using the rft df97 - philco 1s4 combo to listen:

 

i always loved this piece of music, but now listening to this recording - so sweet and beautiful, but nevertheless full of dynamic - great interpretation - pure magic.

 

and the quality of the recording itsef is absolutely gorgeous! the dynamic range is unbelievable, you have the feeling that the whole sound chain plays in another leaque, separation, soundstage, imaging, finest details and the smallest differences in sound level of the different instruments can be heard.

 

the only thing i have to do is to remove all meta information and tags from the wav files as the colorfly c4 'plays' this meta information like a two second burst of white noise, and that at high level at the start of each track.

 

the other only thing i have to do is to buy hd versions of all the recordings i already bought!

Four Mullard DL92 just arrived!

post #1974 of 3473

Received today 3 RTF DF97 :wink_face: and 3 Mullard DF96 :wink_face:, but... also some Mullard DAF91 instead of the Mullard DF91 ordered (mistake from the eBay shipper). :mad: 

 

--> Can I use the Mullard DAF91 ??  

post #1975 of 3473
Well, I am not a technical person but looking at the specs of both they look very very different. Personally I would not use them.

GG, I promise as well to reply to your PM. I have been on the road a lot this past month so just dip into headfi but that finished on Monday so I will have time to respond. Sorry for the delay!

The TU-05 is sounding so good that it has made me totally reevaluate my desktop rig over the weekend...........

 

So I went and ordered the Cavalli LAu this morning. Hopefully I will now have one of the best amps for my (C)IEMs and one for my Cans.....:bigsmile_face:

post #1978 of 3473
Wowzers Gavin. I had to look that one up. I see they use some design principals from Nelson Pass's work. Every Pass amp I have heard sounds magnificent so I can't wait to hear your thoughts on this one!

Thanks Ian

 

I was fortunate that there was a canceled order on the first batch run...I jumped on it when informed, and see that orders are now closed on the LAu run, until the next batch in November.

 

But honestly, the TU-05 is really quite sensational sounding with (C)IEMs as sent out by Shikada-san. 

 

I applaud what GG is doing with his, and wished I had such technical ability. 

post #1980 of 3473
Wow, right time, right place Gavin, well done! And I agree I think GG's work is amazing and I am in total awe of his capabilities. For people like me though who are as technically minded as thick soup caution is a must!
