    Hi, DecentLevi is correct, those are the adapters Im using. I bought a variable power supply at that auction site. Link is here. You will also need a copper wire to ground the power supply to the ground on the rca inputs. I also bought some thicker power cables for it since the ones that came...

    "Budget" Tube Amp

    Output impedance is very important. I notice that when I shift between the various settings on the ember the sound changes remarkabely. I usually go with the 0.1 ohm output impedance which pairs very well with my low impedance headphones. The vali and the little dot 1+ that you mentioned seem...

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    I would like to know the result of that. If someone could drop a link to where the drivers can be purchased I might be interested in giving it a try.

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    I use the equalizer to increase the midrange a bit and decrease the bass by about a decibel. That tightens up the bass and makes them sound much better imo.

    I just noticed that the Fivre 6c5g has an extensive soundstage. Sounds quite remarkable listening to classical music. If thats your kind of music I can recommend it.

    They don't have a lot of distortion, just a bit when compared to the Visseaux. Everything is relative. The Fivres will help you with the bass for sure but I don't think they will do much for the treble. Anyhow its a fine tube so I don't think you will be dissapointed.   In that video I linked...

    Im actually trying to be the good cop and save your wallets . But don't get me wrong here, the Fivre is a very enjoyable tube and I can listen to it for hours .It's just that it is competing with "creme de la creme" of tubes.   I was just listening to the Visseaux's and admiring how accurate...

    I have both the Visseaux and the Fivres. The Fivres win in bass and sub-bass extension but the Visseaux wins in the other areas, it just sounds more correct while the Fivres sound a bit distorted in comparison. My advice is to save your money if you already have the Visseaux.

    Some tubes have arrived:   Visseaux 6j5g: Impressive sound, unfortunately one tube had some piece of the getter missing and it had a terrible humming sound. There was definitely something fishy with that tube but the seller agreed to issue a refund so I am happy with that.   Mazda 76: This...

    Ok, I will post my impressions with the Ember next week and we will see. I think that those clipping problems shouldn't be present with the ember, I have tried various tube types including 76 and haven't experienced any such problems.

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

      Definitely something fishy with those headphones. Looks like one cup is moving too much and the other one too little.    Maybe he got the dj-version? (Joke)

      The 76 have 0.3 A heater current so they should work fine in the Starligt. I couldn't restrain myself and also bought a pair, I live in Europe so it will probably take 2-3 weeks. I hope we will be pleasantly surprised with the sound

    I like the L63, really nice, delicate sound. I don't think you can go wrong with it.    http://www.ebay.com/itm/L63-CV1067-GEC-VALVE-TUBE-/201331302145?hash=item2ee047df01:m:mGTrLL5h5Lex_05Edtz-OSQ

      The 7193's are more bass oriented than the 6j5g's but they don't neccesarily go deeper. The 7193's makes my yamaha mt220's sound wonderful. It's a can that I found a bit on the bright side.   On the other hand I also have the fostex th-x00, with the 7193's they sound like crap basically...
