  1. I would hold out for originals.
  2. That is a tough one to find be sure to make an ebay saved search.
  3. Not at all I came home and fired up my system and it still sounds great. BUT the Jubilee is on a level I did not think was possible. You absolutely have to hear it to believe it.
  4. Hard for me to english what something sounds like. Can't wait for you to hear them. The imaging and soundstage was as good as it gets. The two way was cohesive. The bass was full and detailed. Roy took down the distortion a few notches so with that all the benefits. Gotta hear it to believe. Like describing a sunset to a blind person.
  5. The only change I would make would have made about the weekend was comments about the Jubilee would have been after the stereo demonstration. I believe opinions shaped up after the stereo demo. I would say this must be what they felt like when the Klipschorn first came out. The Jubilee is indeed state of the art in horn design. The range, cohesion, extension, and clarity was amazing. PWK is smiling. The tracks I played I knew by heart and I heard things new.
  6. Yup fully horn loaded. I have a pair in my living room. Love em. My second pair. Won' let it go again.
  7. The money is in the Western Electric driver the history is in the cabinet. Please don't trash the cabinet. The museum would love to have it!!!
  8. Don't listen to them the coin base are perfectly fine. The base makes no difference. I tried those when I first got into tubes because they were a bargain.. Buy them at a discount while you can...
  9. WOW! An amazing piece of history. Maybe Jim can chime in on this one. A survivor... @JRH
  10. Maron was kind enough to sell me his K403 prototypes. I will be forever greatful to him..
  11. One electron UBT-2 4800 - 8 ohm. The power transformers and chokes are potted paeco from some HP test gear. I wish I had more of it..
  12. Two 816s two 1625s two 6j5s. I hadn't heard of 2c22's before this thread. Interesting.
  13. Yes as drivers for my 1625 set amp with led bias for the 6j5gts. They are basically half a section of a 6sn7. Not as expensive. They are great. It doesn't get much better than 6sn7 6j5 for preamps. Love em... Not familiar with 7193 but will check it out.
  14. You can't go wrong with Slagle aka Intact Audio iron... I used 816's in a 1625 amplifier and will use them in a 112a preamp..

    New Amp

    I dig the look... Awesome...
  16. Oh I have all the Sound Practice magazines. Good stuff. I have a couple SET 2a3/45 amplifiers and a psuh pull. Going to scrap the PP and rebuild it better.
  17. I know some that claim a 211 never sounds as good a s a proper 2a3 amplifier. With 107db1w speakers I got headroom with all of it in my room.
  18. What do you think about 211 vs 2a3 ?
  19. Interesting I'll have to try those sovtek and EH 2a3s. A friend left a dozen RCA or GE 211 tubes at my house but we haven't done anything with them...
  20. I saw your comment in another thread about 2A3 amp. What 2a3s are you using? I have a bunch of 2a3s like vintage biplate RCA 2a3 and modern single plate sovtek, eh, and even a fake mullard... I didn't even notice they were monoplates. The EH are pretty nice porcelain base and gold pins. Now I gotta compare...
  21. You guessed it.. Actually I have some 6SL7s in military boxes or VT229's. They don't appear to ever have been opened.
  22. This thread got weird quick.... Probably not going to do a SETH. I've seen it. Power supply will be beefier than the JFL. Input will be alot different as well.. I was also looking at Feral Eye but likely won't do that either. I have lots of parts on hands and will likely use what we have available.
  23. I had the toaster mac and wish I had kept it. I've always wanted to have a Next system as well...
