Which is where mine are. I think the greatest thing about tube amps is the ability to tune them to what you're using, and the sound you're looking for. Like everything else in audio it's an ongoing learning experience. And a new way to cause my wallet pain.
Are there customs charges for items that insured for value but aren't actually being sold? I've never done anything like that before.
I could agree with this, though I'd go more with warm than woolly. I still hear great sound stage, detail, and imaging. Ultimately it's not so much about a theoretical best sound. as about finding your own ideal sound. In addition to the opportunity to audition some great tubes w/o having to buy them, what I'm also looking forward to is hearing other's impressions, and factoring their thoughts over mine. A great opportunity to increase my listening skills and knowledge. Can't wait.
Oh, and though they don't get daily use, my HD800s are going nowhere, I love them.
Regrettably, due to lack of interest and the fact that rectifier tubes are now plentiful and cheap (and collected obsessively by Decware-ians the world over), I'm withdrawing the TDSP idear. BUT there's no reason why we can't "roll local", Landman. I've got way more than six of 'em here. :)
I'm disappointed as well, since it would have been a fantastic opportunity. And I know it's just a matter of time before I buy an EML because it's another I'm really interested in hearing. However I also have a big grin on my face. :)
ND thanks for making the effort even if it didn't come to fruition. As you three locals sample the tubes I'd be interested in hearing each of your thoughts on them.
