Separate names with a comma.
Flowers sooth the soul.
Much like some music can!
I upgraded from the Audioengine N22 integrated amp used as a power amp. The Saga has remained in the system with a new production Psvane tube.
The improvements that the Aegir brought were a smoother treble and more open and resolving midrange without getting analytical.
Every day is a school day!
Bummer the Vidar got pushed back again on backorder
Only silver is on backorder. We have plenty of black.
And they sound good too. Or don't sound, whatever. And I even have silver ones, which probably don't sound as good as purple.
Mr. Cowen gifted me a complete set of tubes for a Cary amp, if he wanted paisley cables I would try to make them for him.
Seems that only appeals to Apple folk
@Paladin79 cross quoting this...I’m sure you have seen these before.... if not, I thought you would particularly like the bottle topper!
I have seen the bottom photo before but not the bottle stopper.
In the top photo, they appear to be using the springs from watch band retainers. I have a fairly large kit of those, I may have to try it out. I have plenty of tubes.
Some of my work with dud tubes on the right, a headphone rack, all wiring is internal. Both tubes are light but it may not show well in the photo.
What is the tube amp to the left? Is it a Glenn amp? Also the spider tubes remind me of Ghost in the Shell robots...they look pretty cool! I like the bottle topper also pretty unique!
Cary SLA 70 Mark II, I also have a Cary phono preamp I am borrowing and may luck into another piece in the near future. They lend themselves well to upgrades and general maintenance, this style amp is probably 20 years old so I have replaced many capacitors.
This one is class A push-pull and produces about 35 watts per channel, plenty of power for the speakers I use. I like class A but it is not for everyone, especially when using tubes. My downstairs stays cool year round so that helps.
Because I know nothing about tubes, especially when used for structural purposes, I wonder how many cycles that tube will endure as a hp holder.
I always loved that name...
