Been toying with the idea of using the MJ2 as a preamp for the Liquid Platinum. Tried it but couldn't get it to work. Don't think I had them connected right. Never used an amp as a pre amp.
Gotcha. Was there anything plugged into the headphone jack of the MJ2 (including something like a 3.5 to 6.3mm adaptor)? If anything is plugged into any of the hp jacks on the MJ2 it will automatically send the signal to the headphone jack and not the pre-outs in the back of the MJ2. Very few commercial hp amps pass the signal to the headphone jack(s) and pre-outs simultaneously. Other than that just run the pre-out on the MJ2 to the input of the LP and you should be good to go. Run your source to the input of the MJ2. Hope this helps.

Don't remember exactly what I did as I was on Percocets after I got out of the hospital and forgot about it until your posts about preamp..

There's a big difference between the non gold, and gold to my ears. I have a pair of non gold you could have had for cheap, but I don't honestly recommend them.
So far the Telefunken 6211 non gold pins have great synergy with the Feliks espressivo and HD600 (the sweetness dips down a bit lower in the frequency range than the gold pins). I'll check them in the Lyr when I'm back at work on Monday. Not expecting too much from these tubes was a bonus when they turned out to sound quite good so far. Lol.

Oh cool, glad you found a good synergy for them.

ROFL! Twice.

Percocets are good. Until you run out. At least that's what I've read on the internet, so it must be true. :slight_smile:

I put the blame square on you. You should of bought all of them first time out. Guy got 11 negatives just in the last few weeks. He's ruining his reputation. From memory he has 11 negative, 2 neutral and 89 positive this month. I think most buyers look at the feedback before buying. I'd recommend everyone stay away from him.
Appreciate the heads-up!

@jb77 walked me though 5 pages of diagrams to get the MJ2 to work as a pre amp for the LP, no percocets though. Warming up some 59 Valvo PW 6201 in the MJ2 and burning in those 7316 Heerlen D getters, I could of been burning in 2 pairs at the same time, freaking idiot I am. Feel free to disagree with the sentence previous to this 1.

LOL! I have nothing to disagree with. Maybe if I knew what an MJ2 was... :smile:

Picked up some Brimar 6060 Yellow T tubes.


12AT7 variant? How do they compare to the Brimar ECC81 square getter I sent you?

Yes they are a 12at7 variant, haven’t really listened to them yet, just a really quick part of one song listen, as I wanted to check for noise etc. which they are good on that. From just the part of one song I listened too they were an instant like, will update more after my second pair of GEC finish there burn in.

Hey, folks. What was the final determination on the Indian eBay seller 'totempole_999'? I thought there was some questions as it relates to the authenticity of some tubes purchased by folks in this thread. This seller seems to have eerily pristine hard-to-find Brimar, Mullard and Telefunken tubes -- so much so that I'm leery. Any counterfeit tubes acquired from this seller??
