    This is a thread for owners of Feliks Audio headphone tube amps to give their impressions, discuss tubes, share their head-fi gear around which their Euforia, Elise and Expressivo revolves.

    It is a place where like minded folks are encouraged to participate and share their passion in this most satisfying head-fi hobby.

    This will be a fresh start. It has no links to previous Feliks Audio threads even though you will find heaps of my posts there.

    The only link you will find is the Feliks Audio website - http://feliksaudio.pl/

    So without further ado, welcome !

    Some useful links for your reading in case you can't sleep....

    This is Elise. This amp arrived on the 27th Oct 2015. I had almost 1.5 years of audio bliss with it. It only cost me $649 back then. It has since been renewed. Everything has been changed except for the transformer and chassis. It has been upgraded to 2017 Elise specs. I have since sold it to Ross because I also have Euforia.

    Here I am running a strange tube combination. One Raytheon 6sn7gt vt231 black glass and RCA 6sn7gtb with a pair of GEC 6as7g power tubes. :wink:

    Sounds really good though.

    This is Euforia. It's almost identical to Elise... almost. I'll post pictures later of them side by side, so you can see the subtle difference.

    I got Euforia sometime in late March 2017. Can't remember the date now.

    Here, Euforia is shod with some of my best tubes. Sylvania 6sn7wgt and Gec 6as7g. Euforia sounded simply gorgeous. I'll be giving impressions of Elise and Euforia in subsequent postings.

    This is Expressivo. It is rather large and mythical ..... but you should hear it. It's jaw droppingly good. I don't have it yet.

    @canthearyou, i believe you're right. It's most probably this one:

    That, or, UT's just messing with his newfound audience...

    You have a sharp eye. :smile_phones:

    I don't have an Expressivo so I am waiting for someone who has, to come along and post it.

    These are my latest tubes - Chatham 6080wb solid graphite plates. Bought from none other then @oshipao .

    I love the tone of these tubes. Strong bass, muscular and he-man. These tubes work out in the gym and it shows.

    This is what I use on a daily basis. Photo taken when I first brought Yggdrasil and HD800 home. Euforia sits proudly with them. She has Sylvania 6sn7w and Bendix 6080wb slotted graphite plates. The sound from this system is a knockout.... literally.

    UT, why no links to all the earlier Feliks threads in the first post? I think it would be a good idea.

    P.S. It's Espressivo.

    I can sell it to you after I buy it from Oshipao.... at a premium of course. I would have tested it.

    Good idea about the links.

    You sure it's Espressivo? I was thinking....
