Project Sunrise/PS2 Tube Rolling Thread (and maybe even Project Horizon and Project Ember) - Page 27

post #391 of 398
Have a Horizon on the way to do a round-up review of the Ember, Horizon, and Sunrise.

I love the Voskhod 6H6Pi/6N6P tube in my Sunrise III. Electro-Harmonix 12BH7 Gold Pin if I want more detail.

I also have an Electro-Harmonix 6H30Pi Gold Pin now (only tried in Ember) and a couple RCA 6SN7 Smoked glass.

Gonna a fun comparison!

Three amps enter, one amp leaves (and goes back to Jeremy).

I also plan to get a pair of the Garage1217 linear power supplies when those become available.

really looking forward to that !  

i'd wondered if it would be worth moving up to the ember SQ wise, i don't really need a lot of power, but the "auto" features would be nice

 

i posted my frankenrise pic over in the ember, i'd forgotten about the sunrise thread

So far I'd say the Ember is more dynamic, powerful, accurate, and detailed than the Sunrise. And objectively more versatile.

But the Sunrise is romantic if a little soft in sound comparatively.

If the Horizon is like a better Sunrise for my HD650s, the Ember is going to be sold or sent back with the restocking fee.

i have grado cans, and a he500, and the sunrise is great with the grados, and does a real good job with the he500, though not quite as nice as 

the gustard i have, so for what i have right now, i'm probably set up pretty good, and that's basically what jeremy said. 

jeremy has gone out of his way to be a help with my hum issue, and all i bought from him was the adapter and the newer cover plates.

i bought the sunrise from soundsgoodtome, got a pretty good deal, a few tubes and a jay's audio LPS,

Oh nice! I'm waiting on Jeremy's LPS to add that to my setup. I have heard good things about using an LPS with the Sunrise.

music seems a little more fleshed out punchier, of course, could be some of the old placebo effect, but nothing wrong with that, lol

Tried the EH 6H30PI and a Novosibirsk 6N6P-IR (replacing the cleartop RCA 12AU7) in the Sunrise III and the 6N6P-IR had more detail and impact with solid bass.  It is my favorite so far.  I have a Sylvania chrometop 6NS7 waiting in the wings.  

 

Have you tried the 6SN7 in the Sunrise?

 

Reproduction Chain: Winyl ASIO -> Schiit Wyrd -> Singxer F-1 -> MHDT Atlantis -> Sunrise III -> HD800

Yep. I ultimately preferred the 6N6P (or IR or 6H30PI--all sound almost exactly the same to me) after rolling dozens of tubes.
