I don't actually think that is possible....when I chose my preferred number, it was available and as it was only 4-5 units away from the current build and I was more than happy to wait until he got to the number. I am very pleased that it has been built but on the other hand I had no qualms waiting til later in the year. I take this opportunity to thank Shikada-san for building mine.

Wow... GG, once again thank you  for all the kind efforts that you've given to make this really happens.

Much appreciated...! beerchug.gif

GG, Thank you so much once again for your generosity in all its forms, what a great member you are. Now, how are those cones doing?? biggrin.gif
post #1491 of 3704

the cones are doing their job but nothing special, but together with the door stoppers, the other feet, the wooden plate, the concrete plates and the brick, so much different configurations possible, i think there is a difference, but maybe i am really saturated with different very small changes, so i have decided to 'recalibrate' my ears by starting from scratch listening to my different players alone, then with the vorzüge and the continental v2 .... 

 

i have the feeling that wooden plates sound better than concrete plates, but at first i will listen to old setups to get a better feeling again for the sonic benefits of the tu-05.

my tu-05 begins to have a loose contact problem with the headphone out. i think i will open the amp and replace it with a 6.3 mm one.

I can't remember GG, do you have the combined Headphone/on/off jack or the separate one? If it is the new one then I am sorry to hear this. You know, this is the only weakness in this amp so far as I am aware. I think Shikada San just needs to put a better quality 6.3mm jack in and be done with it!

I think when I send mine back for modification of the HP jack and switch I will ask him to put a good quality 6.3mm jack in.

Thank you again for the cleaning kits, it is so kind of you.

As for isolation, well, I have been thinking and as soon as my local lumber yard opens tomorrow (its a holiday here today) I am going to get a piece of oak cut just a little bigger than the amp. Then I am going to rest the wood on the four Oak cones and then glue three Oak cones to the wood for the amp to rest on. I think I know what this will do and I think I will like what it does!

I am very intrigued to hear how Andy feels about the magnetic isolation things he has ordered.

Also, tomorrow my multimeter should arrive so I can at last check the bias of the tubes. I have purchased three spare batteries just in case the voltage has dropped below 1.4v.

Also in the mail over the next week or so are the Raytheon tubes and the Nordost Odin interconnect. I have been reading a great deal of positive thoughts about this interconnect so am very much looking forward to hearing it. The chap has fitted Pailiccs jacks, not heard of those before.

Pailiccs connectors are quite common here in China. They are no Neutriks, but they are of decent quality.

Thanks so much!

my amp has a seperate power on/off switch!

post #1499 of 3704
Hmm, that is disturbing then as that was meant to take care of the weak jack. I would really love you to report this problem to Shikada san. Hopefully he will adopt a much stronger jack. The one downside to my amp is that I am always in trepidation of plugging in the headphone and that should not be so.
post #1500 of 3704
Having said that for the first time since it bent the internal part of the socket I carefully plugged in my T5P's Neutrik jack and all is well so I can stop using the adaptor cable now!
I have always thought the adaptor cable pretty transparent but am glad now I can plug in my headphones directly!

I guess the rubber parts on the jack have worn just enough for them not to bend the inside of the socket, least that is the only explanation I can think of as when I first plugged the headphones it was like they were on a spring and pushed back out!
