 GREAT JOB GG ! 

 

- What in your opinion is the most responsible for the improved sound ?  The new lay out or just the better cables used to replace the stock cables ? 

 

telefunken 1u4 + lorenz dl92 combo  is your 2nd best combo.   But... what about the telefunken 1u4 + Tesla 1L33 ?  Did you abandoned this combo ?

it's hard to say as so much parameters changed. but i am sure that the better contact and contact area of the 6.3 mm jack and also the internal cableling with a high quality and thicker cable improves the sound, also my headphone is directly connected without adapter cable, and not to forget the before weak contact caused by the 3.5 mm jack that may have result in some sound degradation..

 

in addition to the improvements i posted before, there is something new with the sound, don't know why, but everything sounds so homogenous, real, there is even not the idea left that i wear and use a headphone, it's like my loudspeaker amp combo where you can stand in front of one of the loudspeakers but you could not recognize the loudspeaker as the source of the music, the music is there and you hear the music, but the loudspeaker seams to be dead silent as not beeing there.

 

the level of micro detail is amazing, everything has body and can be separated, you could decide if a singer has a wet or dry mouth, listening to rickie lee jones, pop pop, dat dat dere, the texture of the contra bass, the imaging, everything can clearly be separated, but in the same time presented as a whole, and the localisation of her child playing and walking around, the understandability of what the child says, it's just unbelievable, never heard it that good and clear, everything is swinging, full of detail.

 

the telefunken 1u4 - lorenz dl92 combo has the beautiful and relaxing sound of the lorenz df91 - philips dl92 combo but also the clarity, impact, speed and texture of the lorenz df96 - tung-sol 3s4 combo.

 

? best of all combination ?

 

the telefunken 1u4 - tesla 1L33 combo is great sounding (at the moment i am more on the relaxing and homogenous sound trip), but more analytical near to but not harsh in the highs, has more attack, at the moment i listen to paul simon, but for example to listen to pink floyd - the wall - i would prefer the telefunken 1u4 - tesla 1L33 combo - much more bite.

Shoot! The amp is in Japan and the post office tried to deliver it but no one was in. Does anyone know the protocol for missed deliveries in Japan, are post offices open on Saturdays?
