It's Obon, so a lot of Japanese businesses are on holidays (as such me on holiday too in Oz!). Sadly I forgot my charger in Tokyo so when I drained my TUR-06, I couldn't use it for the rest of the trip.

Just come back from climbing to the top of Mt. Fuji. Too bad that I didn't bring anything with me for this trip.

AnakChan, any update on your listening impression of the TUR-06  v/s  the TU-05 ? 

 

Have you started "tube rolling" with the TUR-06 ? wink.gif

Sadly not much update. I did listen to it for one battery run's worth during my holidays (and am still on holidays!) and comparatively from the Fostex HP-P1 headphone out vs lineout to TUR-06, the the TUR-06 had more depth and staging perception. I also used it with my AK120 -> TUR-06 and kinda spent more time enjoying rather than critiquing it. Then my battery ran out and I realised I left the cigarette car charger back in Tokyo. How I have a flat TUR-06 :P.

you could write something about your expectations about the ak120, then we all can share the feeling to miss sonething! smile.gif

ianmedium - what did you do smile.gif . i wanted to focus on european tubes no uk no us tubes not to buy the whole world production but then i followed your recommendation and bought the mullards df 91's.

 

they sound absolutely exceptional!

 

i gave them two hours of burn-in time, combined them with the tung-sol mil spec dl92 and must say that the spacious presentation, the width and especially depth of the soundstage is amazing, also the bass presentation, texture and decay plays in its own leaque.

 

i would call me a soundstage freak, for me it is one of the most important properties for great sound, and here the mullards just deliver!

 

i love tube rolling.

 

the next modification of the tu-05 should be implementing four auto loading six tube revolver magazines with pre heating and front panel tube selecting switches!

GG,

Mullard valves (made in the UK) are unbeatable in my opinion for their sonic attributes. Moreover, NOS examples are relatively inexpensive and plentiful in comparison to the virtually unobtainable LORENZ tubes. Mullard valves are noted for being expansive, with great holography and a noted bass presence.

So glad that you're enjoying your British valves.

Cheers,
Andy.
