    MHDT Labs: R-2R NOS Tube DACs

    And that's the review that prompted me to jump the fence and buy the Canary. So that was you. Thanks for that thorough review. Good job. :-)

    Little Dot Tube Amps: Vacuum Tube Rolling Guide

    Thanks, Mordy for this lightning fast reply. The seller also responded to my query. I've been concerned because the measurements were so "out of tune" (although they were not listed as a matched pair). He says he used an AVO vcm 163 tester and both tubes tested NOS and that book values for new...

    Little Dot Tube Amps: Vacuum Tube Rolling Guide

    I have just received an order of 2pcs TUNG SOL 5654 tubes listed as NOS on ebay. The measurements were not listed in the description but the boxes they came in have them: one is 13.7/5.1 but the other one says 6.5/4.5 Annoyingly different. Does anyone around here know anything about test...

    Beyerdynamic DT 1990 PRO - Beyer's open-back mastering headphone

    Can't help you with that. I'm still on the fence to get the 1990. I use an OTL tube amp (with my DT990 pro).

    Looking for "warmish" DAC for around $1,000

    Canary DAC by MHDT LAB Non-oversampling (Philips TDA1545A chips), tube buffer, BNC, USB, Coax and Optical inputs Very nice warm sound, no trace of any listening fatigue (when I turn it on, I listen to it all day long)

    AKG K812 Pro, underrated?

    I can see now that it is a new version of the UD-301 (perhaps smaller in size).

    AKG K812 Pro, underrated?

    Where did you get a TEAC UD-301 with 2 years warranty? AFAIK it is a discontinued model from wayyy back.

    MHDT Labs: R-2R NOS Tube DACs

    I have got a Canary DAC. I started tube rolling but I have a question. It was very difficult to get the factory installed tube out. When I pushed the replacement tube (by Tesla) into place, it did not go all the way down. I was afraid that I would brake the circuit board. When switched on, the...

    AFAIK the -ev extension means military grade i.e. manufactured to stricter specs and made to last longer.

    New Beyerdynamic T1 (2nd Generation)

    Has anyone gone the path from DT990 Pro to T1.2? I am using the DT990Pro (250 Ohm) thru a Little Dot MKIII and and the sound is amazing. I mainly listen to classic rock, prog rock, fusion, acoustic, some classical. The sound is powerful but airy (every instrument has lots of space around it)...

    Little Dot Tube Amps: Vacuum Tube Rolling Guide

    Thanks, Mordy. In the meantime I took the Sylvania out just to be safe. I didn't want it to explode or something. I inserted a pair of Russian tubes 6zh1p-EV but I am not so fond of their sound. I loved the Mullards the most. They were wonderful. The Sylvania pair was very good too. I remember...

    Little Dot Tube Amps: Vacuum Tube Rolling Guide

    Hi fellow forum members, I have recently replaced the driver tubes (for Sylvania) in my MK III and just now I noticed that one of the tubes has a black spot (ca. 1cm) on the top, where there is the silvery coating. I don't think it has been there when I inserted the tubes. The sound seems to be...
