Just a heads up.

A seller on eBay has a bunch of DF96 Phillips for sale. All NOS. They are bulk so won't come in individual marked boxes. These ones are actually Valvo's made in Hamburg and apparently are meant to sound really good.

I think GG has a pair, great price as well!

GG has tested these and they are a drop in replacement for the DF91, no alterations are needed if I recollect.

ianmedium - do you know the german saba greencone loudspeakers / drivers made in the 50ties?

 

http://www.troelsgravesen.dk/greencones.htm:

 

 

they have reached legendary status, are available for example on ebay, rather cheap, and you can build high efficiency dipole loudspeakers  with this drivers, one of the owners is using a 2x 0.6 watt tube amp!!!!!

 

if you look at the pictures, this is the so called saba cello, because the housing is made like a cello, the hole housing resonates like a musical instrument:

 

 

i asked the carpenter working for our company, he can make such a pair of housings for about 300 to 400 euros.

 

see also http://www.methe-family.de/sabacello.htm:

 

this is another construction that also could be used for the saba drivers:

if you use also the tweeter you need only a capacitor as crossover. when i saw this picture the picture of your dream loudspeaker set came in my mind.

 

to test the potential of the saba greencones i bought a complete set of drivers so i will not only modify my tu-05 during christmas holiday but then have two high efficiency loadspeakers available to test the tu-05 with!

I had not heard of these GG, thanks so much for the link. I will explore them!

I just found another seller with a couple of the exact same phillips Valvo Hamburg DF96's but very close to me here in BC so ordered a pair from him. Very much looking forward to hearing the Valvo sound.

I know you got a pair of phillips Valvo's GG but could not find your thoughts, what did you think of them?

Just completed the purchase of these Valvo Made DF96's with my local Canadian seller and thought I would post his details to add to sellers we have.

His eBay store is:
http://stores.ebay.ca/Vacuum-Tube-Supply?_trksid=p2047675.l2563

And his Website is:
http://pacifictv.ca/index.htm

His name is John and is to deal with! He is located on Vancouver island in our provincial capitol, Victoria.

I did notice he has some 1T4's and I have asked him what brands he has in stock.


Hope that helps!

i gave the Philips DF96 just one hour of burn in and listening some time ago, so it would not be fair to give any statement about how they sound. at the moment i focus more and more on one manufacturer sets (just for fun)

 

so last week i used the Tesla 1F33 - Tesla 1L33 combo (1F33 = DF96, but 1L33 = 1S4 = only with modification)

 

this week i started to listen to the Philips DF97 - Philips DL92 combo (but DF97 = only with modification)

 

- very nice sounding, very spacious, in general the DF97 tubes seem to have more Sparkle and Bite than the DF91 ..., but also a tendancy to have very slightly harsh highs.

 

btw, today i got 2x PHILCO 3S4, will be very interesting if i like them as much as the PHILCO 1S4.
