    The all new Continental Dual Mono

    I bought a continental duo-mono a couple months ago, and the line out wasn’t working so I sent it back for a refund. The trouble is that I really like the continental, I just wish it was reliable. Have any of you had any trouble with its functioning or needing repairs? Thx

    So I’m visiting LA this weekend and decided to check out the Upscale Audio brick n mortar store n the burbs. I think I’ve spent hours n hours on their site over the years. 2 showrooms and a high end HP area with 2 chairs. Lots of cool vintage paraphernalia. From Marantz 7s to the original...

    Tube quality was at its height at that time due to the West being locked into a Cold War power struggle while simultaneously fighting a proxy war in North Korea, while ppl back home were building underground bomb shelters. Preparedness was the name of the game whether it was tubes or shelters.

    oh, ok, thanks for toning that down. The Melvins sound good with tubes on the Lyr 2! Without the Melvins, there would be no Nirvana, no Soundgarden, no Mudhoney, no Pearl Jam, no Alice and Chains, yada yada yada . I agree about the tolerances. The industrial/military tubes are presumed to be...

    I mean, those rare earth metals that they put in the tubes in the 50s .... that schist is expensive these days. As we know, they just don't make the tube internals like they used to. Smoking' rare earth metals, that's the the best high! :bulb:

    I did a google search for best vacuum tube 6922. It took me to a couple places, https://www.head-fi.org/threads/6922-tube-review-17-top-6922-6n23p-e88cc-cca-7308-e188cc-tubes.761078/ and http://hktubeaudio.homestead.com/files/6DJ8.html The Hong Kong Audio Club did a tube shootout. I don't...

    Some Lyr/Mh2 related equipment updates. I swear, the more I put into my front end, the better the Lyr, and it’s tubes sound. I will be replacing my PS Audio AV outlets with some used Shunyata SR-Z1 outlets @ 1/2 price. On USAudioMart. The guy has more of these for sale if interested. SPDIF...

    Balanced cables alone (even without a balanced termination) easily improved SQ by 2-4x. Adding balanced termination improved my SQ by ANOTHER 2-4x. Balanced Is the only way to go the 6922 Tele’s still sound too clinical in the Lyr? The Lyr is pretty warm, it trades some resolution for...

    During he Cold War, Russians would steal X-rays from hospitals and run then under a press to make "records". Like the ingenuity of the SE Asian Indians and Cubans. (Just a friendly reminder of how freakin lucky we are) That is correct. No, just good old Mary Jane :cartwheel::laughing: I'm...
