    Help needed: Virtual Grounding, Hum, Distortion, and me throwing something out a window.

    Tubeheads - what's up with these tubes?

    SQ difference from wire gauge???

    Yep, there shouldn't be a difference unless you use a wire that is too thin for the current going through it. But for headphone purposes, you'll be fine with whatever kind of wire you choose.

    help me spend my money! (Amp and DAC for K701s)

    The gamma-1 has a good reputation as a not-too-expensive, awesome-bang-for-the-buck DIY DAC. It should make a great source.

    create LED warmup time with Capacitor

    Well, for most small signal tubes, the operational point is about 10 seconds. I actually inadvertently did this when I made a small CCS to drive the LED in my amp (see my sig) for the fun of it. I had a spare CCS chip, a capacitor, and a couple resistors, so I threw it together. A side effect...
