I love Germany, I know this is off topic but this is a friendly thread so we can get away with it!

I am British but have been living in Canada for 13 years, heading back this year though and am looking forward to it. My Great Grandparents were German and my girlfriends mother and father are German. I am thinking of calling Vienna home when I go back as she lives there.

I was in Berlin when everything broke and was one of the folks with ice picks hacking away at the wall, will always remember that day. I was there quite by chance, only the week before deciding to book a shorty holiday there!

So why not visiting the next high end in munich? For me it's just 20 minutes by bus.

Now that sounds like a plan! My friend Peter who runs Avshowrooms.com just came back from there with a whole bunch of video reviews, it looked wonderful!

A minor correction - posted a wrong email address - the correct email address of the tube dealer mentioned is tubefix@arcor.de.

Guys,

I'd be up for a trip to Munich for the show. We could all meet up with our amps! L3000.gif

 

Cheers,

Andy.

So fellow ASP chums a bit of good information!

I just sent Shikada San a message about using 1T4T tubes. The heater power consumption is half that of the 1T4. I have seen some Tungsrams for sale that are 1T4T and have been wanting to try Tungsrams as they are meant to sound really good. They were made in Hungary.

So I am going to take one for the team and order a pair and report back as to what happens. Seeing as they are in the voltage driver stage I am guessing the volume will have to increase a couple of notches but the benefit of them is longer battery life!

Also, Shikada San apologizes, he would love to join in here but he is so busy building amps he does not have the time!

Just found this link on the net showing suitable replacements for tube types though I very much encourage you to contact Shikada san with the details of a tube your querying before using so he can give the OK.

Turns out someone else is using the 1T4T tube with no ill effects. Sound quality is apparently no different but battery life is longer!

Thanks Ian.

This is so exciting, to have better battery life without any expense on the sound quality.

 

Just wondering then, does the 3S4T will do the same thing. rolleyes.gif

post #432 of 3525
Thats great!
I have just sent him a message with a link to the specs of the 3S4T and will let you know as soon as I know!
post #433 of 3525

Exciting. Thanks Ian.

 

Though he's so busy, I think it's better for Shikada san if he can join this community.

 

Btw, found these links for the tube replacements:

Just out of interest whom among us purchased the RCA's Andy found? I see he has sold out and it would be nice to compare notes between us I think.

Mine are now on the other side of Canada so they will be trucked the rest of the way.. God love Canada Post! rolleyes.gif So mine will probably be here next Monday (If CP decide that is to break the habit of a lifetime and be efficient!)

Regarding the 3S4T tube.

Just had a response from Shikada San saying it would work but seeing as that tube is the driver tube there would be an issue with less power , and looking at the numbers,quite a bit less power so I would not go with that one I think.
