  1. Welcome to the forum! I asume "broken" as not working anymore. Have You checked eBay? Often parts turn up there. If You are handy with electronic repairs, just try to bridge broken conductor traces on your board.

    You can also look at the sales section of this forum, maybe a member is selling the part You need.

  2. I' not sure how much soldering you have to do on the Nixie as all resistors are SMD, as an amateur these are hard to solder. You probably just assemble greater components.

  3. The vita says that the owner of the page designed this amp and other gear himself. He´s an engineer and musician. He dosen´t reveal where he has his kit-parts produced. So you could say it´s "Made in Germany".

  4. I was about to pull the trigger as well, but then thought it through once more and customs charges could be quite painful here in Germany. I will finish refurbishing my Heresies first and then maybe go down tube alley.

    Had a look at the DIY kits on Cube Depot, one can get those in Europe as well, also worth pondering.

    @Shiva  is our devin townsend expert here , he recommended this concert dvd as well . Here is another double cd / dvd album from devin. I bought both ..thanx again @Shiva




    Had the CD-box in the mail today, used – the case is a bit battered but the discs themselves are fine. Great music, recording sounds even better on my big system. Thanks for another great suggestion George! @MicroMara and @Shiva for first posting.

    Next week i´ll order the live-recording of the concert in Royal Albert Hall.

    up against the back wall... sadface




    since 'new' prices on the old style Jubilees have more than doubled over the last year, I really don't need them anymore.... so



    Watches, like so many other things, are a matter of taste.... I never liked the looks of Rolex very much, if i had the money to spend, i´d go for a Breitling, the Old Navitimer in particular. Still, it´s a good investment, always a "penny for lean times".

    Update to my previous post.

    I set up two 140mm fans & thermo-switch on my Marantz AVR. Each fan has a switch with four settings off/low/medium/high, a USB plug with some length of cabe and a usb receptacle. Fans are connected to one another and then to the thermal switch. The switch has thermo-lead for temperature measuring wich goes onto your receiver, into your rack, ect., i opened the casing of my AVR and put it in above the heatsink. Power is supplied to the thermal; as my receiver has no USB on the back, i feed power from an external USB-charger.

    The thermal switch has no speed-stepping, it´s on or off. You set the fan-speed with their individual switches, so the thermal saves you the hassle of switching on and off, wich i find convinient. I have my fans on the medium setting, sitting approx. 3 meters from my AVR spinning noise almost non existent.


    I hope this helps people who think about a similar purchase.

    As for the Tubecube, be warned that it gets pretty warm so it needs some ventilation space as well.

    No problem, it´s an open shelves rack, lots of air. ;)

    Compared to my Leben CS300

    Oh, i´m sure Your Leben sounds better, but then it also cost more – a lot. On the plus side, some "tuning " can be done by buying other tubes, wich con conviniently be bought on the same site. I always thought about pairing my Heresys to a small tube-amp and i´ve seen this one mentioned somewhere before. Good to read that it´s usable, even though it doesn´t cost a fortune. So Cube 7 reallly might be a good way to start with tubes.

    By the way, what height is the amp?

    Yamaha A-S701, Marantz PM8006

    At my workdesk, my KG1.5 play very well with a A S 201, in my living room a Marantz SR6008 powers my Heresy 1 and RF3, also a good combo, i think. At some point i might get a A S 1000 just for stereo.
