Running a pair of TFK EL11 with a pair of Valvo EL12. The imbalance is less today. Found a brilliant solution - instead of moving my listening chair (it is a high back office chair with wheels) I moved my balance control slightly to the right.
Here is my problem: I cannot decide what I like better - TFK EL11 with EL12N or with Valvo EL12.
Strawberry or cherry vanilla?
Can somebody tell me how to post a short video using my iPhone with sound to show how the hum magically disappears by pinching the aluminum foil tightly around the tube and extending a piece to touch the chassis?
I made the video but a screen pops up that I have to set the associations and I am not familiar with this.
I just re-read your post. Are you using Elise as a pre-amp to another amplifier and external speakers? Apologies if you have already told us this.
If so, it would be interesting to know if the same imbalance/distortion occurs when listening with headphones.
