Oh boy, then leave it be as this amp is perfect for those genre's!

I was listening to HDTracks Bill Evans waltz for Debby last night. A great deal of care has been taken making the 24/96 version of this album and it shows. The 05' really makes the bass seem like Scott La Faro is playing right to the left of you. You will love what this amp does with jazz and vocal.

Another love of mine is early choral music. I hope Andy chimes in here as I know he likes this as well but the voices I promise will have the hair on the back of your neck standing on end so palpable are they!

I am really rooting that your amp gets this gold treatment, I just have a feeling it will look stunning and so interesting that he thought about this also!

Oh, for Jazz, one last recommendation.

I purchased today from HDTracks Horace Silver's album Songs for my Father, oh boy, they have done a wonderful job on mastering this for high resolution, it sounds wonderful!

Yup, I believe so too when he said the tuning will affect to lower volume.

In that case I've decided to leave it as it is.

 

Thanks for sharing those amazing musics.

But unfortunately, the HDTracks are not available for non US resident.

I'll try to find that album on other sources then.

Ah, yes there is a way around HDTracks US only policy, I live in Canada, just use paypal!
post #664 of 3525
Oh yes, don't forget to share that wonderful picture you did of my set up biggrin.gif
post #665 of 3525

Yup, I've contacted the HDTracks few months ago and they said at this moment they're not available for non US resident.

But, they said they have a plan to make it international soon, but did not give any specific time line.

 

Guys, I have few discussions with Ian and Shikada san about the gold color of TU-05, and then decided to get my unit to be painted in that color.

We do not know how it's going to look like, so I'm using Ian's picture of his wonderful set-up as our own illustration how the TU-05 looks like in champagne-gold color.

Please don't take it as granted, since it's just my own rendering using the Photoshop and not an official finished product from Shikada san.

So please don't get misled, because the finished product may or will differ.

 

Champagne anyone...?

I think that looks stunning! Simply stunning! I was thinking about the screws, I bet a local anodizer could do them if Shikada San can't! Or even cheaper, some champagne gold paint sprayed over the screw tops would do just as well!

I second that... biggrin.gif

As I recall, Shikada san told me that he will only assemble 3 units of TU per month.

 

Come to July, I believe three of our lucky friends will get their units respectively.

If my record is correct, then they could be GermanGuy, bmichels and woodcans.

Any news for you unit guys?

Hardly await for your impression... beerchug.gif
