post #346 of 3704
Happy to hear that mr. Künzig has responded to you as i got a response from him.

Good luck i found two but only two pairs on ebay.fr lorenz 2x df91 and 2x dl92 and of cource ordered them so i will have a complete lorenz set for my tu-05 (but no amp at the moment), as result there are at least 2 set of df91 in the world.

I also ordered a pair of both df91 and dl92 from the manufacturers mr. Künzig has got, so sure having
a lot of time to spend for tube rolling.

Nevertheless i am constantly looking for lorenz tubes and also philips, even asked my local radio dealer.

As i have seen there are a lot of valvo's and other brands we have not listened to, so with good luck we may find another dream set.

I think the great thing about these tubes is that they are so cheap that one cannot really lose by buying them, for the price of a couple of coffees one has a set of tubes to experiment with.

All of the ones I have purchased to date (almost 40) have come to less than one of the good quality tubes one would put in normal amps and I have had so much fun in experimenting.

I do think Brent Jesse audio has his descriptions of the different sonic qualities of brands pretty spot on in my experience and in all honesty there has only been one set of tubes I have not liked, the Telefunkens. Of all the rest if I had any of them I would be perfectly happy. Going to the degree I have is not really necessary and part of the reason I did is so that future owners would not have to experiment so much.

Heck, even the stock tubes are nice sounding, just very noisy in terms of ting ting sounds and a sound a little. Like tissue paper being scrunched but the sound quality was fine.

Having said all that I am glad I did try other tubes as there are sonic differences and considering the amp is of such high quali why not give it the best tubes possible.
German Guy, I am so impressed you have a full set of Lorenz's, it will be interesting to see how a full set sounds.

One of the reason I combine different types is that I can fine tune the sound to my exact liking which is more towards air, detail and tight bass . I am happy to forego depth of bass for quality and tightness any day but that is just mee.

The Lorenz's really tread a wonderful line between detail and lightness and good quality bass which is why I keep going back to them!

Just curious.  Are you guys using this thread to talk about both the TU-05 and the upcoming TUR-06?

post #350 of 3704
I think that is a good idea seeing as ASP has only two amps, it makes sense to keep it all in the family and the tube discussions are as relevant for the 06 as they are for the 05 I feel.

I am looking forward to the first 06 owner showing up!

Wonderful.  I have a feeling the hybrid will be in my future...

Welcome mate!

Have you seen AnakChan's great (and the very first in the world!) review of the 06'?

post #353 of 3704

Thank you and I did read that review.  Between your praises and AnakChan's review, I've become more and more interested.  I won't be the first owner, but I see myself on board with an ASP amp.  Not sure exactly when, but I'll be glad to read others experiences first....

I'm trying to place an order for the TUR-06 but seems it's still being sorted in terms of pricing, etc. (as such the web page has no order sheet). For myself I think I opted for the smaller of the two 'cos despite my desire for the TU-05b, I already have a Zana Deux at home and I don't see myself taking the TU-05b out as much as I would for the TUR-06.

You might want to follow him on Facebook.  He has mentioned delays in the release of the TUR-06.   That's fine by me as I'm still recovering from recent purchases.....redface.gif

I do. But I also reach out to him directly since I'm somewhat a more "local" customer.

Just thought that maybe i have a "search problem" because "LORENZ" in Germany in fact was "SCHAUB LORENZ" bought by "ITT" in the late 50s so "ITT Schaub Lorenz" ..., anyone here tested or have listened to ITT tubes ?

 

By the way, do you know this site http://wegavision.pytalhost.com/. It is full of downloadable scans of vintage radio, tv, hifi equipment and schematics for really a lot of different manufactures / brands.

I believe the TU-05b is a transformer coupled output, the Zana Deux is OTL? Anyone know what difference in audio to expect from these designs?

I'm not certain about the design but I did have the TH-05b side-by-side with my Zana Deux and from what I remember, the ZD did present a bigger staging and richer sound across the FR. Not that price should matter however I just happened to be lucky to pick up my 2nd hand ZD for $1600 shipping incl., otherwise a new ZDSE is almost twice the price of a new TH-05b.
