Nice find on the video. They actually caught me whizzing by right to left 19-22 sec into the video with my camera around my neck :p.

my next project will be DIY tube rings!

post #1298 of 3704

DIY tube rings:

 

it's so hot here, no chance to sleep, so i decided to make some prototypes after my last post.

 

i did some research, the tube rings offered on the tubedepot website are made out of teflon because of the heat resistance (not a design problem here) and have titanium rings to fix the ring on the tube, titanium because it would be resistant to the magnetic induction of current. i decided to use plastic instead.

 

i had some plastic tubes 'on stock', they were originally made for electrical installations as endpoint for cables to connect the cable for example to a switch for in the wall installations. in addition i used foamrubber as damper / material to absorb vibrations:

 

 

a benefit of the plastic tubes is that they have inner rings so the foamrubber will be kept in place when pressing the ring over the tube:

 

 

i cutted four of this parts out of four plastic tubes and four pieces of foam rubber to be used as inner sleeves:

 

 

here you can see one of these plastic rings, a piece of foamrubber, and the top and bottom side of such a ring with foamrubber as sleeve.

 

 

here you can see a tube with ring.

 

 

and here all parts together.

 

 

this is the tu-05, all tubes with tube ring.

first listening impressions - tu-05 - lorenz df96 / tung-sol ken rad dl92 - with tube rings:

 

listening to angelo branduardi and j. s. bach, toccata and fuge d-minor, i have the feeling, that bass quality and texture is further improved, the whole sound seems more stable, everything seems to sound even more natural and effortless and even more real as before.

 

i would not a/b this in a double blind test, some more listening needed, i am very interested in the results when listening to some tracks i really know and used to listen to.

right now listening to paul simon - songs for the capeman - i couldn't name any point that needs to be further improved, the sound, the level of detail and micro detail retrieval is amazing!

GG,

Firstly I have sent you an email, thank you !

Secondly, those are some serious tube rings! I tried with just silicone rubber rings but had mixed results. Whilst they gave for me a darker background I felt they took a little energy away from the music, I am going to try your method though and see how that goes!

I really love your ingenuity !

this could really be the case, a very good description, just a little, little bit less engaging sound, thought about this while listening to paul simon - graceland.

 

hmmm?

 

p.s. thanks for your statement about the tube rings, at least i will work on that orange colour, maybe black shrink-on tube will help.
