Tube amp aren't hot enough to melt lead! I did the soldering myself and I did it well. It's more than solid and perfect in every connection. But you got me worried that I might add teflon tubing on B+ wiring...

It is dangerous in all point to point wired tube amp then. Advantages with hard wiring is the wire stay where I put it.

So i have shown my higher end headphone stuff but never my mid-fi listening area.  This is actually listening to sat provider streaming sirius.  Instead of going thru the shown dac/tube buffer set up it is going from the sat receiver to a dacmagic that is out of site behind tv and to the integrated amp that way.

I love it, it's insane, I did "some" mods but in the end the stock 339 was already pretty good. I rewired the tube socket and changed the power supply to use 6C5 tubes. My favorites combo is smoked glass english CV1932 drivers with Chatham 6AS7G. But GEC 6080 is very sweet in itself and I love it with Osram L63. Bendix 6080WB are so nice with classical music and nuovo metal too...
Here's my mods



These are some awesome pictures btw

Sure, this is not a camera forum though! Sony Nex3 with adapter. First shot is SMC takumar 24mm f3.5@5.6 maybe. Second and third I presume are from Pentax-A 50mm f1.2 @2 or 2.8. Processed with Lightroom.

I know and I also know a good camera doesn't necessarily make good photos :wink:
Thanks!

Snap some of the VPI Traveler, and yes, I'd be interested.

Yo,
 
Sure guys I'll snap pictures of those tomorrow for you!
 
I'm going to meet Bes when I go in tomorrow, that is if he is still there. He's helped me the past 4 times there and is an awesome guy to deal with!

Heres My Rig as it sits now.
The only other thing i want to add any time soon is a nice balanced amp to match all my balanced cans and balanced W4S DAC1. Thinking Schiit Mjolnir if it gets good reviews.
Just got my custom Thunderpants Last week and have been loving them so far. such fat bass!.
 
Sorry i suck at taking pictures. enjoy.
