    Got my ES3 and star tips yesterday. First impressions after several hours of use:   Stock tips are decent. I got the best fit and sound with small silicone and comply tips, the silicone being the best. With good fit the isolation and sound obviously improves significantly. Box content and the...

    Good conversation I like it. And thanks for the input guys, appreciated!   Quote:   I have tested 812 few times in different expos. I think they are great headphones, but for me the treble/upper mids were a bit too harsh. Tested them with solid state so I guess tube amp would have better...

    Finland, but it seems i posted this too hastily. Tried different tubes and E17 and they all had the same rattling sound. I located the problem to be my usb port not the T1. It seems that I cant have anything in the port next to amp usb port or there will be rattling distorted sound. Don't really...

      Tubes have grading system depending on the noise they make and I believe phono grade is the quietest one. Many members here have bought driver grade tubes and are happy with the performance. My opinion is you don't need phono grade tubes in T1.     Check these links out if you are...

    Seems like the useful links are not yet linked to the first post. As it would be stupid to not have this info readily available, I have restored the links for the time being. If some more active member wants to take it over just ask joeq to change the link. The info is pretty comprehensive as...

    Well I tried to offer the post for someone to take it over. I knew this way someone would definitely do so. There's been so much negativity going on here lately that I'll be stepping back from the forums. It's not only the thread but I get accusations via PM too. Take care of the thread and try...

    With all the fakes and relabels I'd be very interested of those codes. I wouldn't buy any of those expensive tubes without proper etching.

    Amperex, Mullard, Philips, and Valvo Tube Codes   Most Amperex, Mullard, Philips and Valvo tubes are marked with a group of symbols which contain coded information relating to the type, place of manufacture or country of origin, and the date of manufacture. Apart from the interest of knowing...

      I'm more interested about those beer bottles in the background. Any Great Divide brews there :D

      Tempting, but I promised myself not to buy tubes anymore. I have too many already ;)     Sounds awesome. I won't even consider doing anything to my T1 before such guides. Thanks in advance.

    Like I said I'll be waiting for more impressions. I'm not too concerned about the actual parts inside since my T1 sounds very good. It's just that we don't know what caps we have and if they really have noticeable effect to the sound it could really mess this tube rolling thing we've been having...

    I mean s**t. If these caps really affect the sound quality significantly, and we all have different cap combos, it sure as hell affects the tube reviews/synergies we've been working on here. I probably won't be DIYing my T1. If all of you guys come to the conclusion that changing the parts...

    I just turn the power off because I don't want to mess with my volume settings. This being said, I'm relatively low volume listener.

      Interesting. I think 7308 is perfect for jazz.     I like his style. Discard the bad tubes and save the clearly better ones for more detailed review. Hasty impressions are one thing, but we're still waiting for you to do that summary review of your tubes. That would, no doubt, be the...

      Very nice post. I added this to the info page. If you ever review more tubes remember to update this post also.
