    tube rolling suggestions

    Regarding the tube adapters, where can you buy those? Also, who or where is a good source for either the 6sn7 and/or 5687's or 6bl7gt/6bx7gt's output tubes? Thanks, Greg

    Wireless Headphone Recommendations

    I currently have a pair of Senn's hdr40's. Unfortunately, they have no range whatsoever, Even when I'm within a few feet I stll have interference. Forget walking out of the room or even out of eyesight. Very disappointed with these. Does anyone have alternative suggestions? I'm not worried too...

    If anyone doubts break-in, then you're....

    If you go back to my original post and re-read it, I made a point of stating that I didn't listen to the headphones after my initial listening out of the box for a couple of hours until they had over 200 hours on them. So, I did not get "used to the sound of them". I did that intentionally just...

    Curse you "SACD Lover"!!!

    Thanks for that great explanation! BTW, I also went with the 6sn7 tube option. Guess I forgot to mention that in my initial post. So, based on your expalantion, it appears it is something I may want to consider, no? If I understand correctly, the money I save in tubes by buying 12sn7 tubes...

    SR-71 Not Driving DT 990 Pro's Well Enough.

    Ray, Is the gain on your SR-71 amps fixed at 6 or can we "flick" an internal switch to vary it? I realize you can make whatever gain you want when you design and build it but I'm just wondering if it can be varied by the user as some other amps can be. Thanks, Greg

    Upgrade Advice Please

    Thanks for the info. Keep in mind, mine are from 1987. I'd be willing to bet there have been a few changes over the years. In it's day, these were really good cans. However, progress marches on so the SR60's surpass these older generation. That was the reasoning for the question. What would I...

    Archos 200 vs. 202 & 400 vs. 402-differnces?

    I've been researching the 200 & 400 players. When checking amazon, it also lists a 202 and 402. For the life of me, I can't figure out the difference. Does anybody know? Must admit, I'm leaning towards the x5 but just want to explore my options. TIA, Greg
