  4. I know you guys will appreciate this a fly landed on the rim of my coffee cup "Oh, you are soooo dead!" =================== making lasagna today. I normally make it vegetarian, but, time of the year, a lot of stuff is out of season. Thinking about putting something "meat" in.... Trying to decide whether to use bird or burger. I will happily be eating it 3 times a day for a couple days. The leftovers are better than the firsts

  5. https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/doc/ele/7554601539.html This amp designer/builder created an excellent KT-150 amplifier for me, and he still does custom work. The amps in this ad are not the prettiest, but their sound is excellent. I've listened to two of the amps in this ad at his home, and they remind me of a well seasoned steak with high end peach brandy. Good stuff. Everything you'd expect from a good SET amp. You can read about his amps at Glow In the Dark Audio - http://www.glowinthedarkaudio.com/nikolov-se6cu6.html

  9. I sold my Hegel h590 and now looking to get some tubes for the cornwalls. I have a wilsenton r8 with a pair of heresys in my other listening area and love it I did a comparison of the hegel h590 vs the r8 with heresys and I have to tell you….. what a night and day comparison. The Hegel is a lot more reserved and laid back vs the r8. With the tubes the heresys came to life. The Hegel really seemed to play it safe while the r8 seemed alive and fun. I can’t believe I enjoy a 2k tube to a 14k solid state. my question is does anyone have experience With the wilsenton r800i? Seems like it will be an upgrade from the r8 im currently running a bluesound node to the r8 but looking to get something for the cornwall system. I’m Thinking about a denafrips Aries 2 or Pontus 2 paired with a streamer. does the streamer have much to do with audio quality or is it the dac that determines that? any feedback is appreciated thank you

  11. I think both streamer and dac are important. I went from a Node to a Lumin and it was a noticeable improvement. As @Fido mentioned, the dac in the node is decent, but a Pontus II will be much better and worth the $$.

  12. It's said that we die twice: once when our body stops, and a second time when our name is mentioned for the last time. With that in mind, say his name often, if only in your mind. He seems to have been a big part of your life, so keep him in your life by thinking of him often.

  13. @henry4841 have you tried the 6AV5GA strapped as a triode yet? I know you like the 6Y6 a lot and it is a nice tube I found the 6AV5GA to sound better. Another tube that is better than the 6AV5GA and probably the best sounding tube I have ever heard in my life is the 4P1L. It's a Russian directly heated pentode but of course wire it as a triode. I thought something was wrong the first time I was taking distortion measurements it's that linear. It was a tough fight between the 45 and the 4P1L in my book for best no feedback sound and I have concluded the 4P1L is better sounding. I really think you would like both. I sent curiousgeorge some 4P1L's but not I don't think he has had the time to mess around with them yet. The 4P1L being directly heated filament is a little tougher to setup in that it works best with DC filaments like all directly heated triodes do. The 6AV5GA is much simpler to build with due to it being indirectly heated 6.3v heaters.

  14. The dacs in the node 2 are good but I think the music sounds better using my Pontus DAC.. the Node is a very nice sounding streamer

  15. I made these with: Belden 5T00P 10awg (from BlueJeans Cable), the BFA's from Compass Audio (MicroMara linked), gold plated copper spades from HiFi Collective. I wanted soldered connections w/ gold over copper. Most are over brass. The blue heat shrink is so I know my left from my right behind the amp.

  17. This is the video for the first song by my friend, the Hi-Fi Fairy. The Hi-Fi Fairy, dusting the K402 tweeter horn of my left speaker, is my avatar. She moved to Germany and her band is called SOSOSO. I recommend full screen and subtitles, because half the lyrics are in Japanese, and the English parts can be hard to make out. She speaks English, French, German, and of course Japanese, so I can forgive her accent in English. I don't know how her German sounds to a German speaker. The song is called Do Demo lijian. SOSOSO -- Do Demo lijian:

  24. The subwoofer driver will have a speaker surround that permits greater excursion (say, 3/4" for a subwoofer vs. 1/2" for a typical driver although those are not real numbers). The greater travel is needed to move sufficient air at low frequencies.

  25. Always been interested in this guy's amps. I'm in the DC area so may have to drive up and hear them some day. Have a set of Cornwalls ('84 I think) and I'm about to finish a DIY pair of OB speakers using the Lii Audio 15" full range drivers, so I might be in need of some tube goodness. I run everything with a Marantz 2215b right now (which I love), but might be time to switch things up.

  27. I learned something today... it was almost painful since I heard The Rapper the other day, I decided to search it up on spotify and saw Donnie Iris ["Ah Leah"] had a live version of the song. I bit and gave it a few seconds... in the intro, he says something about him being in The Jaggerz

  36. Procedure complete. Went well but they sent me home with a catheter. I took it out at 6:30 this morning. Burns like hell when I pee and that will last a while. Just glad it's over. Growing old is not for sissies..........

  38. Well... took the wife to a Dr appt today. I did a little grocery shopping. Coming home, I had a local radio station on... not a syndicated one. I kinda think this station is one man's dream.... KTBX Nice mix of old and older rock. No commercials, no jabbering DJ.. Just continuous music....they played these back to back and then Oh... still no phone

  39. The prostrate grows as we get older pushing on the uretha until you only dribble rather than a full flow. The urilift puts a solid tube through to the bladder and staples each side of the prostrate back. Hopefully you will then be able to put out house fires with the increased force of the stream....kinda like a fire hose🙂

  41. Here is how I spent my Sunday morning. A big shout out to Dean for the parts. The cedar boards I cut from a log I have had in my shop for over 10 years. I knew it would come in handy one day. Anyway, I would change a couple things, if I were ever to do this again, but over all not bad for something that gets hidden away inside a pair of Heresy's.

  43. A good friend of mine passed away today from complications of Parkinson's disease. He was diagnosed with it over 10 years ago and degraded rapidly. The past couple years he was just a shell of his former self. Couldn't speak, basically catatonic. He bought a pair of RF-7s when they first came out. They were maple. He and his wife had us over and I remember listening to tons of music on them. It was the first time I had ever heard or seen them. I was in love with the cerametallic cones and the maple finish was gorgeous. They sounded incredible and he was only using a mid-level Denon receiver. I was hooked from that point on. Shortly after that I bought a pair of RF-25s and eventually made my way up to RF-7s. Then the Heritage bug bit and that's where I'm at now. Brent's favorite songs to play on his RF-7s were Hotel California and Take Me Home (Phil Collins). I'll always think of him when I hear those songs.
