Congrats man!!  mine comes next year, long, long wait for me.  :wink:

Boringer! Congratulations, it has been a long wait but i know it will have been worthwhile!

I have those exact tubes and they sound really wonderful together! I find my US Mil-Spec tubes have a "meaty" quality to them. By that I mean they are robust sounding, giving everything an extra layer of texture I found.

I also found they benefit the most from extended burn in, around thirty hours really opens them up and deepens the bass a little whilst also adding air to the top end so persevere with them.

I put these tubes in the A class of all the tubes I own. Same quality as the Marconi/Lorenz/Phillips/Mazda tubes but different sounding to those tubes as I mentioned.

Shikada San has really upped the tube quality. Anyone buying now, though I would encourage to still roll tubes to fine tune, in all honesty would never need to do that with the tubes he is supplying as I feel they are leaps and bounds better quality than the stock tubes he used to supply!

OK Boringer, where are more pictures!!!!

Can't wait for your listening impressions!

Thanks to all of you guys.

The amp really worth the waiting time.

Yeah, it's all me that caused the delay, asking for the golden color, the additional 1/4 and XLR jacks, etc.  

Five months indeed.

So gmahler2u, next year is just about 2 months away. It will come soon... :D

 

xplosive, you're in Bandung mate?

Just give me a buzz, we might try to arrange a meet up.

I would like to listen to your TUR-06.

And please let me know if you would like to have GG's tube cleaning kit.

Anyone else who would like to have it, please buzz me too... :D

Thanks Ian. 

First impression, amazed and fall in love.

I believe the tubes are still evolving before they settled down.

But the amp really impresses me a lot already.

I really do find the tubes benefit from at least 10 hours on them before passing judgement as they can be a little noisy to start with. If there is rustling noise after 20 hours then chances are the tube is not good or that the pins are not clean enough.

Light tinging noise though is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. My tingiest tubes are also the best sounding, the Marconi's!

just used my cleaning kit to clean the pins of the two philco 3s4 arrived today. they are really old vintage nos ones, the cardboxes are the oldest looking ones i ever have seen.

started to listen to the rft df97 - philco 3s4 combo, let' s give them some time for burn-in.

Who made the Philco's GG, the name is a very familiar one to us Brits but more for electrical appliances.
