    Wyred 4 Sound Dac2 DAC $525 SHIPPED

    That Parasound P-6 is a nice pre. I think it's the same one my buddy has (or is it a P-5?) and he has the matching amp. He let me borrow it once. I was digging the bass management it had. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    I'm lucky, when I buy from him I just go pick them up. He's just under an hour away. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    What I Got Today!

    I've learned one thing lately.....stick with NOS. The cheap new production tubes I've tried blow. Except for the ones made in China at the Shugyang plant.....the Psvane Treasure Series. Those tubes have really proven themselves as far as sound quality goes. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Hi my 2 channel home audio

    I've had EQ's that added noise and pretty much gave up on them until I went to EQ in the digital domain and haven't looked back. I honestly would not want to go without it. Dead silent. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  9. Yeah, even if I had a case I'd probably sell it. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Shingles vaccine...

    Sounds to me like you should really go out and buy another pair of speakers or an amp to take your mind off the pain. That's what I would do.[emoji106] Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  11. I am thoroughly impressed so far with the Preferred Series 5AR4 rectifier tube I got from The Tube Store. I've got about 20 hours on it so far and comparing it to my NOS Amperex Bugle Boy GZ34 the difference is there but I could go either way. Of course different results in different amps but in this case I could swap these tubes depending on my mood/ears on a given day. The Amperex has a slightly richer sound while the Preferred Series 5AR4 has a more open transparent quality to it. Of course it only has 20 hours on it but it's very promising......unlike those cheap 12AX7's I tried. Speaking of 12AX7's.......these Psvane/Treasure tubes are absolutely impressive. Same 20 hours run through them as well. Anxious to hear how they develop after 75-100 hours on them. I've got this whole week off from work so I'll be doing some jammin.

  12. Yeah, anytime I would put a bass trap in the front right corner of my room it would degrade the sound. Easy solution.....I removed it. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

    Inexpensive DAC Recommendations

    I'm still rockin my Maverick Audio TubeMagic D2. $250 bucks, upgrade to discrete opamps and a NOS 5670 tube and two years later this thing still impresses the hell out of me for a total of just over $500 bucks. In fact, I just scored a couple more NIB/NOS GE 5670 5 Star white lettered tubes and should get them in a few days.[emoji106][emoji106] Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  14. Man I am really digging these tubes. Schu, thanks for the recommendation. [emoji106] Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
