    Take as much time as you need! I have zero problem waiting a bit more.

    Woo Audio WA22 Amp Owner Unite

    I'll second the RCA Gray Glass 6SN7 recommendation. They are excellent. Honestly, for that budget I'd go with an all-RCA set of tubes. Look for some NOS RCA 6AS7G's (late 1940's to early 1950's) and an RCA 5V4G or RCA JAN 5R4GY rectifier. Yes, there are better tubes out there but you'll get...

    The end of the month is always a fun time to revisit this thread, I love seeing the new builds from Tomas. Just a few more before my Odyssey gets going!

    The (Un)Official Amp Thread For ZMF Headphones

    I got some great direction and suggestions from @UntilThen and fortunately my tube supplier had some premium tubes in stock. I also have some RFT EL34's and La Radiotechnique EL39's. The Odyssey takes a 5U4 rectifier and 6SN7/6SL7 preamps tubes, of which I have TONS from years of owning the...

    The (Un)Official Amp Thread For ZMF Headphones

    Currently using the WA22 and GSX-Mk2 with my Koa VC's and Cocobolo Atrium's. I much prefer the WA22 with both headphones, it adds just a bit of heft that I don't get with the GSX-Mk2. However, it's hard to not appreciate the dead silent background of the GSX-Mk2. I use that with the VC's when...

    How are you liking your Odyssey so far? I'm getting closer and closer to my build month and love seeing pictures of yours.

    The Reference 6SN7 Thread

    I have a few different pairs of RCA Gray Glass 6SN7/VT-231's and a pair of Sylvania VT-231's as well. They're among my favorite tubes.

    Nothing super special besides the high quality parts Tomas always uses, and it will have single 5U4 rectification with dual 6550/EL34 power and 6SN7 preamp tubes. It should be a real looker with the VU meters and black chassis :)

    Great communication and super fast payment!
  10. Dan Clark Audio Aeon 2 Noire

    Up for sale are my very lightly used DCA Aeon 2 Noire's. They have at most 25 hours on them. I am the original owner and these will include all original accessories. The stock cable is 1/8th with a 1/4th adapter and I will also include a 10ft. balanced cable from Corpse Cable. These are in...

    Up for sale are these ZMF Aeolus LTD's in Camphor Burl. This set was released in 2020 and I am the original owner. They have been kept in a pet and smoke free home, and have been taken care of very carefully over the years. I will be including all original ZMF accessories plus a few extras...

    Just a heads up, but I'm probably going to be putting my LTD Camphor Burl's up for sale with the stock perforated and suede universe perforated pads.

    Those RCA 5R4GY's are some of my favorite "budget" rectifiers. I think I paid $35 USD for my single bottom getter and $60 USD for my dual-bottom getter. Hope you like them!

    @UntilThen are you planning on getting the new ZMF Caldera? Very curious to hear how they'll sound with Odyssey.

    Exactly what I was thinking when considering my Odyssey build options!

    I believe the blue glow on the KT66's is due to the electrons interacting with the glass walls of the tube. It's not a bad thing by any means.

    Oblivion | UltraSonic Studios

    Congrats, I saw the pictures on the website but haven't noticed it in this thread. Mine will have single 5U4G rectification and some cosmetic changes, but the design will be very similar. I think yours actually has some nice custom Sowter output transformers? Do you have any NOS tubes for the...

    That looks like the custom Odyssey with dual rectifiers! Mine is based off of that design, but will have some differences. Are you the new owner? How do you like it?

    Honestly, you're probably over-analyzing the differences between Gen 1 and Gen 2. Buy whatever you can find that's in your budget. You probably won't find anyone that has compared a Gen 1 directly to a Gen 2. Even then, you'd need to compare the amps using the same tubes. And please bookmark...

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    This is a fantastic song that really shows off the soundstage and imaging of the Atrium's: You don't even need to watch the video to visualize where the drum kit and high hat is situated. The imaging of these headphones is incredible.

    The Reference 6SN7 Thread

    This is good advice for purchasing those harder-to-get tubes. My few pairs of 5998's and other rare tubes have come from a very trusted person who I've purchased from many many times. More common tubes like RCA gray glass 6SN7's I'll get from eBay.

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    I also got a pair with the blonde streak, it looks excellent. It’s taken me about the same amount of time to start understanding their sound signature a bit more. Then again, I’m coming from the VC’s which are a bit more resolving. Atriums have incredible sound stage and are an excellent...

    ZMF Verite Closed-New Closed Back ZMF Flagship.

    I find the VC's to be a jack of all trades, master of none. They do take some time to really appreciate, and sound best with tubes.

    ZMF Atrium - new open-back co-flagship

    I can't speak for others and their aesthetic preferences and choices, however in my case I knew cocobolo has quite a bit of variability in color. There are some chassis colors that look better with the brick red cocobolo, and others that look nicer with the chocolate/blonde color. I felt like...
