OK, the ultimate tube rollers wristwatch! I was watching an interview with Steve Wozniak and have always wondered what watch he wears as it is huge! A little research and I find out it is a "Nixie watch" which uses two nixie tubes which displays the time!!

Its pretty cheap as well, around $500.. The ultimate tube rollers watch!

Steve from Mullard Magic wears one of these and it is very cool, but due to it's propensity for devouring batteries and humongous size, is only really suited for those with large wrists and access to an inexpensive supply of lithium cells.

Cheers,
Andy.

It's back!!! biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif

Here is a quick shot. I will try to take a shot of the LED tonight as the picture I just took makes it look white and it is not. just a beautiful Kermit green. I am so glad I went for green!

On initial listening I can report that the line out on the AK120 is very transparent to my ears. I was easily able to discern the differences between my three interconnect cables which to me tells me the line out is clean and transparent. Easily the equal of the 801's dedicated line out!

Also, on brief listening (am going to charge the amp fully now) this is a really great match, wonderful synergy and very very musical. The amp really shows how the 120 raises its game with good amplification. This is more like a high quality home rig than a portable!

relabeling tubes:

 

due to all the tube rolling not using my white gloves i have some tubes with no label left or nearly unreadable label.

 

i used this brother label printer

 

 

and a cartridge with 9mm adhesive transparent label foil to print new ones:

 


i cut a label to be as small as possible (here with tube)

 


and here the label alone:

 


and finally the tube with new label:

 

 

it's not looking that niece but until i have a better idea at least it is now again possible to identify the tube.

Well, I have established all is well and the synergy between the 120 and amp is wonderful so I am itching to try the Raytheons so will put them in once the amp is charge. I think I will combine them with the Sylvania's as well!

Loving the the separate on/off switch and not having to worry about inserting the headphone jack!

This is the best I can get yet with the green though it still does not show it off to it's best! BTW. I am loving the Raytheon's! Too early to be definitive but so far very very positive about them!

Ok, last shot of the night. It has been so wonderful having this amp back. Not only do I appreciate it more but it has given me an even greater regard for the AK120's abilities.

A night shot to end the night with!

I know you've already bought it, but there are alternatives which offer 192KHz capability (e.g. iBasso D7)...
post #2085 of 3704
Personally I would have the HRT over any iBasso product any day! They have an excellent reputation for making really great sound and are not full of bugs unlike iBasso!

GG, thanks for the pictures ! wink.gif I am very much looking forward to your thoughts on this compared to your colourfly.
