for estimation time you may check it here:

It is a long wait but totally worth it..

the tur06 can make magical things even with my hippo biscuit.. my trusty little backup dap while the ak100 get charged.. ak100 battery runs out pretty fast as i play my 24 bit source.

These are the color sprays i already had "on stock" (can't find the red one at the moment):

 

 

but heavily inspired and more and more influenced by the "Marantz chamagne look" discussion and pictures i bought this metallic color sprays:

 

 

from left to right:

- zinc primer

- silver metallic

- champagne metallic

- slightly darker champagne metallic

- gold metallic

- clear coat

 

 

i think i will use the time until christmas also to build some front panel design studies with the components i have, i have several designs in mind:

 

- for example i found mini toggle switches with integrated LEDs and transparent toggle, so the hole toggle as power switch  could glow green when the amp is switched on in the charging position of the power switch, no glow when amp is switched off, and red glowing when amp is switches on in battery mode.

 

- one front panel design i have in mind would be very tu-05 like, but all switches and maybe other front panel parts would have an illuminated ring around like the tu-05 potentiometer already has

 

- found interesting and small RGB color LED controller boards (but somewhat power consuming) so it would even be possible to adjust the color of all rings just on the fly

 

- one general design i have in mind and posted a sketch of would have a rather convertional looking as for example the little dot amps

 

- another design would have the switches and knobs more integrated into the front panel like the nagra preamp ianmedium mentioned.

 

-one design would be to use the metallic color sprays above for a champagne colored housing, silver metallic painted transformers, so the Marantz way

 

- and there is a fancy design i am thinking about inspired by car tuning equipment, something like that:

 

 

any suggestions?

congratulations, i am sure you will never regret having ordered one!

 

P.S. everybody here already owning an amp knows that this will be a hard waiting time but worth waiting and with a good end :smile:

She's a beauty.

 

Not surprisingly, I can confirm that the tu-05 pairs very well with the AKG k3003i. The 4 to 3 conductor adapter is necessary though. This amp really adds warmth and life to the music. It has been too long since I listened. Makes one of my new favourite albums sound closer to the live version I have heard. Brings a smile to face. 

 

Edit: gmahler2u, you are in for a long wait, but I am certain you will find it worth it. Congrats!

Shikada san ships the amps with what looks to be an car cigarette lighter power adaptor wired with the mains electric plug for the country he sends the unit to.

Hey guys, as the post count increases, can everyone post their current favourite tube combos? I'm getting persistent 'clinking' during silence with some tubes and with limited listening time and limited tube rolling time, could use some guidance towards a quiet, good sounding combo.

 

The Siemens dl92/Sylvania IT4 combo is doing a great job for me tonight. Just a bit of paper crackling in between songs, hopefully it will resolve with some burn in.

 is the noise to hear if ( headphone connected):

- amp volume set to minimum, no cable, no player
- the same with cable
- the same, but with cable and player (player on)

- the same as above, but amp set to higher volume

- any other electronic devices near by, especially mobile phones?

if you hear something like a

'bbbssssssssss beep beep kgr kgr bsssssss gr zzz brrrrrrrrrrrrr'

it is the electronic activity of the player or RF interferences from another device.

try to exclude anything else beside ? e tubes testing the configs and steps above.

? Sounding like this ?

I never heard such an an effect with any of my tubes but also found that my grados are much less sensitive than ianmediums t5p.

I have been really enjoying the Mullard 3S4/Brimar 1T4 combo but just today changed to Marconi 3S4/Lorenz 1T4 combo. Both are equally enjoyable combo's, the Marconi/Lorenz having a touch more air and detail with only a tiny bit less depth to the bass.
