yes! only one tube type left - the Tesla 1L33 - i hope they sound exceptional because they need half the power of the dl92's, but then ...

 

enough tube rolling, the result (even with my base and door stoppers without good cones) is so great sounding, time to listen to music until i find a point i really want to be improved.

Wow, I love it that when I wake up there are so many un-read posts to read, such a change from even a few weeks ago where there was so little activity.

I am loving the way this thread is developing and progressing. I can see why the tube rolling is now becoming more of an historical and reference part of this thread. I wish there was a way to add at the top a sticky that we can use simply for tube impressions so that anyone can easily find it rather than us having to update it as GG is kindly doing for it only to get lost in a sea of posts once more...

Ah, jus thought. My first post was #3 which is pretty much near the top so I will cut and paste to start with all your tube rolling links GG and add them. Anyone else's if you post them once more I will add them immediately, it will save me wading through all the posts!, lets see if this works..

this is a great idea as my link list obviously is only showing my posts and i always had a slightly bad feeling skipping all the other great articles! (but nevertheless found it usefull to renew the list after ten pages of new posts).

post #1447 of 3704
Okedoke.

So below is a link to post #3 now amended with the title.. TUBE ROLLING SECTION FOR BOTHTU-05 AND TU-06 AMPS

I have started with GG's tube rolling thoughts, will add my lists as the days go on and also anyone else's.

If this works for you guys instead of posting your list on this thread pm me it as GG has done it with a title and link and I will simply then head it with your forum name and cut and paste your links under that name as I have done with GG's!

Anyway, I have the impression that they booth improve a little the sound (V/S a plain & long cable), especially in the low frequency.  Effet placebo ?

And...as for what is the next step for customisation of our TU-05, I am preparing a surprise for you tongue.gif
...  Be patient.
















I am very much looking for the surprise, I wonder what it is! The big cable looks like a fire hose, how does it sound?
post #1451 of 3704

Thanks andy. I used your link and bought 4 of them in case they are exceptionnal...

 

Now... the only tube I am missing is a pair of lorenz df96 : the 2 I have are mismatched type :-(

Booth cable sound relatively better than a simple and looong cable. They are booth Copper. I did not dare trying silver cable, I was afraid to have a "too bright sound".  

I prefer the look of the very short one, but the 10" long is easier to use with the RWAK100 fitting in the hand.

post #1453 of 3704

Gentlemen, I have to confess: Initially I did not really liked the sound of this Amp, I thought it was missing some bass impact, but... with some break-in, I start to really enjoy it to the point that I use it now even for "in the house" instead of my $3000 DAC/AMP.   Funny thing is that after some tube rolling, I finally came back to my stock tubes : Raytheon + RCA 1U4.

 

And... there are still room for improvement : I have not tested GG's"lorenz df96 -  tung-sol" dream combo" or any damping/cones.... or even upgraded my RWAK100 to a RWAK120-S to have "dual DAC chip" and a "Real" line out ! 

 

And... I am anxious to hear comments about the TUR-06: May be it will suit my taste even more... if it is also "dead silent" like the TU-05, which is a mandatory point for me.  I HATE HISSSSS.

 

So, thanks IAN for bringing this little gem to our attention popcorn.gif

bmichels,

 

This company is showing a LORENZ DF96 as in stock for 4 Euros plus shipping - http://electols.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=63017 - though I would check with them before ordering to ascertain availability.
