    Some news on the EL38 tube problem: I gave them some extra amp hours and the distortion is gone. It seems that the tubes needed to "settle". I find this effect very strange, never in my life had a similar behaviour with any 6SN7, 6080 or 6AS7G tube. Perhaps...the EL38 were brand new/ never used?

    Tack så mycket! ;-) Totally agree about the synergy factor. I have some of those Foton tubes, they are very transparent too!!

    While waiting for the Swedish toll authorities to process my EL38 adapters, I have been playing with some old tubes that were collecting dust in a drawer. After trying different combinations of power tubes (Bendix 6080WB, GEC 6080, Tung-Sol 6AS7G, Tung-Sol 6080) with drivers (Sylvania 6SN7...

    BTW, does the EL39 require special adapters or the adapter for EL38 works?

    Hello! my apologies for taking so long to answer, I have been abroad 2 weeks for work. Thank you very much for the advise! I investigated a bit more the issue. It turns out that things got a lot better 1h after I turned the amp on. So it must have been a warm up effect. The weird part is that I...

    I have a Polaris and the He400i. The latter are not very different in bass character compared to the 560s to my understanding. I use Polaris with the lowest output resistance and full-bandwidth. That way the bass hits a beet deeper in my opinion. The problem of the He400i is that they have a...

    What a luxury! I could only afford one pair :-)

    @mordy, I finally got those "ribbon" Foton's that you have recommended. They are very good! I don't have a pair of RCA 6AS7G to test your combo, but with a pair of Tung Sol 6AS7G the sound is quite good. The extension on both ends of the spectrum is remarkable, and it makes the sound very...

    Nice review. I partly disagree about the bass assessment though :-)

    Thank you Mordy. I am looking forward to getting them at home! We just bought a house in Stockholm so I think I will leave the ones with metal base and holes in the plates for another life ;-)

    Here you have the effect of 0.1 ohm (green) and 120 ohm (purple) with HD650, measured by the designer of Polaris. This effect of course depends on the impedance of the headphones. The HE400i react differently. I normally have my HD650 in the mid-setting, but I also use a Chameleon filter, which...

    I could imagine. I just could not find it, only got power adapters when I looked for it.

    Interesting. Where did you source your 12V adapter (+power supply?)

    The funny thing is that my father got "The mask and the mirror" when I was a teenager, but somehow her music made into me even at that early age.
