 And... this is only from the headphone out of my RWAK100.  I can't imagine how the TU-05 could compeat agains my RWA when driven from the "real line out" of a RWAK-120-S

don't know, have to combine the mullards with other dl92's, at the moment i slightly miss attack, bite, clarity, speed.

Funny thing about the Mullard FD91: I found 2 very different type, one having small holes in the metal plate !!

 

.   Which one do you use GG ?

post #1699 of 3704
GG, Glad your enjoying the Mullards, they do not have the last ounce of bite or sharpness it is true but they are very musical and in fact I feel these are fit, forget and just enjoy the music tubes. I found the best tubes to go along with them were my Marconi's, Phillips or Mil spec Sylvanias, the later being my favourite to go with them

Bmichels. You know, I lusted after that mullard with holes but I have not seen another like it!

I am itching to try the Raytheons that cam just as my amp broke

Just had a note from Shikada san saying he has the amp and hopes to have the work done by the end of this month which is wonderful. Sadly my AK120 did not get here today so it will be sometime next week as we do not have postal deliveries at the weekend here.

need some advice about japanese email politeness and naming conventions:

 

when writing an email:

 

shikada kageyuki

 

- i assume shikada is the forename, kageyuki is the last name

 

what are the percieved differences when starting with

 

- dear mr. kageyuki

- dear shikada kageyuki

- dear shikada

 

what means 'san'

Shikada is his last name. For Japanese, last name fisrt then followed by first name.

"San" is equivalent to Mr./Mrs./Ms.

listened to some tube combos yesterday focussing on the mullards and my top combos:

 

mullard df91 combined with

 

tung-sol mil spec dl92:

- you get all the benefits of the mullards, great bass texture, quality and decay, miss some bite, attack, speed, sparkle, clarity

- would be my top 'sweet and relaxing'  combo dream set, so call it dream set (no.3)

 

lorenz dl92:

- good compromise, less bass quality, but more clarity, sparkle, .. 

 

tesla 1L33:

- good sounding in its own way, hides the mullard bass enhancements, but how to say moving all this properties more to the mids, highs

 

 

lorenz df96 - tung-sol mil spec dl92:

 

- won the contest again to be my dream set (no.1), nearly the bass quality of the mullards, but more clarity, detail, great allrounder

 

telefunken 1u4 - lorenz dl92:

 

- fights to be my dream set (no.2), and it is, the clarity is amazing, if you directly compare it to dreamset ds no.1, ds no.1 sounds somewhat unprecise, boomy, bassy (but only in direct a/b comparison, differences are so small), great allrounder, very neutral

 

telefunken 1u4 mil spec - tesla 1L33 (pin 1 removed):

 

- a special recommendation for this combo, fast, hard attack, ultra precise, speed, speed, agressive, slighty brighter sounding, no allrounder, but listen to some pink floyd or for example stratovarius - vision - black diamond - and you hear what i mean. my dream set (no.4) (for this kind of music) - how to say it's more like a techno party, not the relaxing armchair.

 

to explain, there is no absolute rating when calling the sets no.1, no.2,.., my decision to select and to listen to one of this sets is also based on the music i want to listen to and my general mood.
