at least it would highly increase the long term quality of the contact,  no corrosion.

 

after having added a short  time calculation to my last post i think of outsourcing the whole cleaning process :-)

 

how long did it take you to clean the pins of one tube?

Each tube takes about 6 minutes. I actually find it a therapeutic thing to do!

GG, I'm with Ian. You explanation is plain clear and well understood.

Btw, regarding the LED, I for once has asked Shikada san whether there's an option to switch it ON and OFF.
And following was the answer:

hmm, It can not.

Illumination brightness can be change by Internal switches. 


(If you want change this, you have to open the panel.)

I asked, because this beauty is a portable/transportable device and sometimes we might use it in a dimmed or low light places where the LED light could be too distracting.
Well, I came to that with the assumption that the LED's brightness is more intensive compared to the tubes glows. I could be just wrong.



Ian, just wondering why the question? biggrin.gif

Actually I was in a dilemma in choosing the color, I prefer black but then I go for silver.
My concern that black might easily get scratches and prone to dust/micro-particles.
Please correct me if I'm wrong here, since I would like to change it to black... biggrin.gif


And thanks for the reminder... beerchug.gif


Thanks Andy. This one might suite me well.

That is great info mate. I think this is why I went with orange LED's, I listen a lot in the dark and the orange I find very soothing, almost like being in an old photo dark room. Though the glow looks bright it actually does not stray far from the amp.

As to Black, ask Andy how his is holding up, he has had it a few months now. I must admit I love the cleanliness of the bare metal and the glow from the tubes reflects nicely off the tube guard!

Whatever you want to know about german tubes and history, german vintage radios technical design... it's all on this great site

http://www.oldradioworld.de/

There is also a newer version but only in german language

http://www.welt-der-alten-radios.de/

I also have sent a message to the site owner, why the lorenz tubes we are looking for are so rare and where to get them.

Black is uber sexy and so slimming... smily_headphones1.gif

My black amp is very scratch resistant and is far less garish than Ian's 'bling bling' silver version. I think of mine as a refined sports car, akin to a Morgan or Bristol speedster, whereas the silver variant is more ostentatious nouveau rich. So comparable with a vulgar Ferrari or Bentley Continental GT - so beloved of Premiership footballers.

Hey, just kidding! As either colour looks refined and very tasteful. Actually, the colour is almost irrelevant when you start listening, as this is when the real magic begins!

Cheers,
Andy.

Excellent choice! I went with orange as well.

post #504 of 3525
Yay! I wonder how many other have gone for it?

you know I am just waiting for pictures from you with the PF's and the orange glow from the tubes!
post #505 of 3525

Thanks guys.

In that case, I will re-look on the TU5 pictures - especially yours - and will consider either to change it or not.

 

I might go for the orange color for the LED, though I might still considering the red and "sakura"/pink color... blink.gif

That is beautiful!! Your photo??

Sadly, no, Though I have heard this amp a few times and it is very nice.

I must admit though, money no object I would be heading either Nagra or Kondo Audio Note's way for home amplification, that and a pair of Voxative Ampeggio Due speakers, still have not decided on my fantasy front end yet biggrin.gif

Stop it! Kondo...Voxative.... please!

 

The green glow of the tubes in that photo seems unreal....

Ahh, I know mate, stuff of dreams.

I thought I would take a moment out of this evenings listening session to take a "night" shot of the amp and all it's glowing glory, see what you think of the orange in total darkness..
