    I use a Norne Silvergarde S3 and agree that silver hp cable is a great pairing with the susvara.

    My RFT have been sitting in NY for the past 9 days. I guess the new even lower level of USPS 'service' is for real! :confused:

    T+A Solitaire P planar magnetostatic

    I should have a shorter 1.5 meter WyWires platinum cable later this week for the P. The 3 meter T+A OEM cables are way too long for my listening location.

    The Tung Sol you bought is current production and may be fine and may just have gold pins compared to the TS you received with your BB. The TS I have is a smoked glass version from the 1943. https://www.ebay.com/itm/123793807709?hash=item1cd2af995d:g:TcQAAOSwyJVc-IU...

    ampsandsound (aka Amps & Sound)

    I got a TON of help and valuable guidance from @me2621a when I bought my BB and all the suggestions he made were very good and accurate. One of the best decisions I made, with @me2621a's help, was buying the GEC A-2900 input tube. Much better all around and with nice extension in the detail and...

    ampsandsound (aka Amps & Sound)

    Trying various input tubes, in place of the stock 6SLN, should make the single biggest difference for the BB. Most folks feel power tubes next and then the rectifier. There are some nice vintage or perhaps real NOS Tung Sol 6SU7 or Mullard ECC35 both drop in replacements w/o the need for an...

    The susvara thread has become more of a 'WHAT amp do I need to optimize the susvara?' for many months. I am a big fan of the susvara and knew it was special from the first day. I am happy with the TT2 and BB tube amp and I am not looking for a speaker amp. I can understand those looking for...

    HiFiMan Susvara

    Glad you like the susvara and DHC cable! We all have our priorities and where we chose to spend our money. Somehow I am fine with 2 hp @ $4-6K, TT2 / mscaler as well as a decent tube amp. I don't hesitate to spend real $$$ on NOS tubes but for some strange reason I have a hard time spending...

    T+A Solitaire P planar magnetostatic

    Thanks, @Ciggavelli ! I will not buy the Elites since I enjoy the resolution, detail and clarity I find with the susvara and P. The day I heard the susvara was also the day I knew I the (original) Empy's would not be with me much longer.

  22. ROOMS FS Pro headphone stand

    FS: ROOMS FS Pro adjustable height headphone stand. I listed it in 'good' and not 'excellent / as new' since it has a few very small minor nicks on the base as shown in the pictures. These sell new for $135 and with shipping are over $175 I will include USPS Priority Mail shipping to the US and...
