things i forgot:
i have forgotten, that by now it's just the 9th day i have my tu-05 here. what may i have missed before? i am worried and nervous. what will happen when listening to my other amps? will i throw them out of the window? don't know, don't want to try, don't want to listen to!
i nearly have forgotten that there was a time using the amp without my felt protective pocket. it's soft, stable, so usefull, and gives me the feeling the amp is well protected.
i have also nearly forgotten but now remembered that i bought this military spec telefunken df904 i.e. 1u4.
i plugged them into the amp, firstly with the tung-sol ken rad dl92 but then switching to the philips dl92.
wow! oh wow! oh wow!
very good with the tung-sol ken rad but outstanding with the philips dl92, so now we speak about the telefunken df904 mil spec - philips dl 92 combo:
this df904 tube is very detailed sounding, you don't miss anything, but the bass presentation ... bass goes deaper, deaper , deaper, it's the best tube for the df91 stage in this respect i own, and together with the philips even more than with the tung-sol ken rad echoes, reflections are more detailed, seem to last longer as the decay does.
beautiful and magical sounding, this combo has this relax and immediatly get sleepy factor, pure enjoyment, while i have the feeling that there are more details and a clearer presentation of the highs as with the lorenz df91, but wonderfully soft never harsh, overall sound is slightly on the warmer side, definetely not on the pin point imaging and analytical side.
listening to bach, toccata and fuge d minor, it is the first time that i can hear the subsonic rumble caused by some cars driving outside. and the organs bass pipes, it's not just bass, it's like the grumble of an electric storm that comes nearer and nearer!
so i will give this set some burn in time and then report again:
two sources selling them at the moment but don't know if these are the mil spec ones.
listening to pink floyd - the wall - with this combo is an overwhelming new experience!
