    I have quite a few multichannel classical and jazz SACDs that I really enjoy.

     

    I feeel like a hypocrit as I sit in my living room with Belle's and Klipschorns in the corners lol... I just wonder how even other heritage will keep up with Jubilee's.... I hope it works.

    Here's a curve from 2007. Clearly shows 60 Hz. rolloff on a now obsolete product.

    There is a good reason here but I'll let ya think about it some more. If you do a search for Jubilee bass horn performance or curves you will find the rest of the story. Even though I just have jub clones I can assure you 50hz ain't it... Not sure why this is even up for debate this late in the game.

     

    As for the new Jubilee I don't even have to see the curves listening is the proof and such an exciting creation. I can't wait to hear it again.

    I love these amplifiers. I just scored a massive amount of transmitter tubes in the lot are like 20 816's. These are my faves. I also have a early 866 with out the cover over the filament. Never had a 866 Jr... Very cool....

  4. For vintage amplifiers I sometimes just use variacs but the ability to dial voltage to 115v is help. In my house I see higher voltages at night routinely 125v. Before this voltage to my house was unsteady. They put up a brand new transformer for me and everything leveled out although still a bit high.

    Russian surplus military caps , your kidding right? That’s a good way to blow up your speakers , maybe even your house.

     

    They build quality is insane. I've been collecting them for years. k75/k42 Metal cans with glass seal end caps. Also their k71 polystyrenes are incredible. I wish I had bought more.

    My experience as well Marvel

    I was looking at my modern 2a3 tubes and not sure why I only just noticed they are all monoplates. The EH and sovteks are quite nice. I haven't compared to any RCA tubes. Not sure I've met a 2a3 I didn't like... I lie I have a fake Mullard labeled 2a3.

    Well  mzkitty already raved about the new WE 300b tubes. Someone with that many jubilees and Roy's sub designs is pretty discerning in my book. 😉

     

    The plant has a great facility here. They have a five year warranty on them. Going to be interesting to see what they do first.

     

    I'd rather wait

     

    Some of the antics of the owners at Munich Audio Show was just rediculous. I'll stick with the EML.

    Any opinions on whether the new Western Electric 300B tubes are worth the money?

     

     

     

    I would wait until the new WE guys have been out for a while and prove themselves. I'm skeptical. but There are some great 300B tubes out there that have been produced for years and have proven track records. If I were to drop a bundle of cash I'd rather go EML as their quality is staggering and beyond a WE 300b repro attempt. If I had to go with the JJ 300B I could also be very happy. They also don't break the bank.

    no one really knows what a Heritage  Jubilee looks like on the inside...............keep em  guessing

     

     

    This video actually shows the internals before they added the second woofer but it gives you an idea. Not your average bass horn.
