I think having sex on the tube amps is till a bad idea though... but hey, your house your rules :ph34r:

Yey, my Crack has come back in focus and is sounding glorious, I was a little worried it might take a long old while to do so.

 

And man I just noticed the scream of a trumpet is now seriously, blow your socks off good.

Right now we have S.E.X. on the table in the home theater, twice. Stereomour runs the mains, one S.E.X. runs the surrounds and one runs the center channel .

Just a follow up from the last post on burn in progress with the RTI Teflons. The glorious sound I last reported didn't last long and the sound quality continues to be very inconsistent, occasionally when I check I get a fleeting glimpse of what's to come, however it has never lasted more than a couple of tracks then its back to just plain muddy and generally dreadful.  

 

Good things come to those who wait.

 

Tick Tock.

Ha! Very similar experience here. To hasten it along, I've keep up a long playlist even when I've stepped away. Pretty amazing really; I'd be concerned if this wasn't generally known/understood as normal for large teflon caps.

Starting to settle down now. I estimate I'm > 100 Hrs. The bass has focused and tightened; though I believe it has more to give deeper into burn-in/optimizing.

My custom Mainline enclosure arrived from the craftsman today. Couldn't be happier with how it turned out. I tracked down a slab of Amboyna Burl Veneer that had the desired figuring and had these made for Mainline and my Crack. A picture's worth a thousand words

Beautful work there misterrogers.  Will have to tuck that veneer idea away.

 

Well, I am sick again and am selling all my gear.  Will downgrade to the best bang for buck combo I  know - T90 + Crack.  Bring it on!

 

Cheers

Sorry to hear, Nathan, but at least you'll have a great setup to enjoy!

Misterrodgers yours is the first picture I can remember seeing that shows the control overlay nicely, on a lot of the pics it kinds looks like a thinner plastic affair. However with your pic its clear to see its actually more substantial than I first thought. Its still hard to tell but is the writing for the controls engraved into the overlay sheet? I see the black overlay has a white layer underneath and have seen similar products done this way before?
