      i thought about the oled ... but $7k cdn for the 65" e6 ... that was way too much shuck to swallow.  so i'm very happy with the 8500 ... blacks are very black, way super contrast, literally no light bleed at the edges and only minimal bloom with white text on black background.  a momentary &...

          is it real or is it memorex ---- is it real or is it g.e.c.?   if it's fake, then it is bloody good job.  but there is something about the printing on the box end flaps ... need to check with a known, real box.

    good question ... i could have sworn this is what i remember from my readings of tube history ... oh well, as roseanne roseannadanna used to say ... nevermind ...   but i do like my raytheon 5751 ... a lot.

        i saw that ... thought about bidding ... but the pix didn't show the slots ... so i demurred. mine is more used but still quite good (i think -- my tester has faulty 6v operation so i can't get any useful readings) ... & like you, i have a single.  double halo getters     maybe we...

    i haven't listened as much as i should but i am reasonably satisfied with its performance ... rather, i'm more than satisfied with performance of elise - the issues i had wrt front  panel i have resolved.*   the t1 i consider to be okay wrt hype (maybe, as lr says, my sn is too low; gotta be >...

    yes, right on all counts!   only thing i'm missing are those xtenders that dl was talkin' bout.  but then, my order was placed much earlier.   so much to look forward to in the next couple weeks  --- new tv, new theatre seats, boatload of el3ns ... is there a new hp amongst this lot??

      less my comment(s) be mistaken - many different types of tube dampers ... whether there is one that supersedes all others, i do not know.   but i happen to have these.     (sorry about the crappy photo).   i also have some diy from nuclear industry -- rings created from special hoses...

      yeah ... that's the ticket ... great job.  did you document this someplace? what, where, when, how?  but i'm probably too lazy to tackle this; i'll just close my eyes & listen to feist & agnes obel.

          no ... you guys are right on the money ... this tube is effin' great.  great enough to pull me away from my new 55" vizio p-series for a while.   but i'm not a fan of the boat anchors  -- the blk screw-hole portion just mucks up the aesthetics for me.

    anyone here try the audio zenith pmx2 with elise?   still early days but the el3n & chatham 6as7g is a great combo -- just kills the jan philips 6sn7wgta & rca 6as7g, but i'll revisit this philips driver later on.
