    Idenitifying tubes, testing tubes

    I just got some used 6680 and was quite excited only to realize there is nothing on them or the box that says 6680 (though it could be faded). Only thing I see is GE symbol, and 12 AU7. Also, is there a general way to test how "matched" these tubes are? Thanks!

    Why I can't hear 20Khz anymore

    So I kinda confirmed my suspicions as to why I can't hear way up there anymore (I can still hear around 18Khz) and why I have a bit of tinnitus. Years ago before I got into this hobby, I would drive several hours to go to european band concerts. I had just gotten my new toy, a little turbo'd...

    EMU0404 winamp asio - no sound unless resample

    using winamp and that japanese ASIO plugin, half of the songs do not work unless I resample to something other than 44100. I can't find a difference between songs that do and don't work - both have 44100 Hz sample rates, similar bitrates, joint stereo, etc. ASIO4ALL instead of the emu driver...

    my opinions on the e2c and er6i (mostly on fit/comfort)

    a lot of people badmouth the e2c atleast from a fitment point of view. we've all heard the arguments between the two from a sonic standpoint, but i will go over my relatively unaudophile opinions real quick with a kramer modded e2c: bass is a little less tight with the e2c but deeper and not...
