NOSValves NBS preamp in the house!!

Recommended Posts

Dean,

I'm curious what did you find funny?

I think it was the "and of course your Cca" part Craig. I laughed too as

it sounded like you wanted to swipe a nice tube for yourself. [;)]

When the time comes I'll ship you my proto type to use while you send me your prototype back for me to remove the SUT and of course your Cca.

I think Dean was laughing at the whole sentence, but then again I could be wrong too. [:)]

Getting back on toopic, I received the case from TK and installed it a few hours ago. I gotta say, this thing is beautiful, and it fits like a glove over the NBS. The pictures don't do it justice...

Have I said how much I am enjoying this preamp? [:D]

I am just blown away by the level of detail this thing produces, and to listen at the levels I do without fatigue is an added bonus. It is just a joy to listen to music again.

Mike,

Who cares how it sounds, visually it's a work of art.

Seriously, that preamp is nice and I am sure it sounds even better that it looks.[8][8]

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy.

Looking good Mike. It really is an amazing preamp. Craig's hit a home run with this one. Just an amazing sounding piece of equipment.

One quibble, It cannot possibly take "hundreds of hours to properly break in". Mayhaps Craig was hanging around with the magic pebble crowd of audio purveyors and accidentally picked up some of their nonsensical lingo.

Oh, for those seeking further information on the NBS, here's a link to the Gary, Larry and I'ss opriginal post:

Congratulations on your new baby, Mike. Craig's done an awesome job on his new preamp.

I did ask him, and he said it wouldn't be much work to mod it -- but it's not at the forefront of his thinking right now. He has a lot of his plate right now, and for those who don't know, his wife Becky is fighting Cancer. The family is under an absurd amount of stress right now.

Craig, I hope your wife's situation is not dire; Hang in there, and take care of yourself.

Congrat's again on your Pre, I wish you much success.

Mike,

Why you covering up all that beautiful, high quality sheet metal with that clumsy old-fashioned looking wood box ;)

Hi Gary,

Been busy with lots of things outside of Audio for the last few years, work, keeping my teens in line, learning to play golf. I still have some NOSValves rebuilt Dynaco relics, my TD124 and a pair of Klipsch Image speakers set up in a nice little listening room. Craig has bought a few parts from me over the years so I had to log on and see whats what with his new preamp. Good to see so many familiar names here.

Hey Scott! So good to see your post! Yeah, I knew you were the one responsible for the face (which is beautiful btw!) and chassis, and agree it looks great all on its own, but lets face it, that wood case looks pretty good wrapped around it as well! [:P]

Glad to see you are doing well! I will say this place misses you though. I hope you get the time to hang out with us here...

Mike

I miss you too Scott. How about lending me a hand with my power board problems on my newly acquired TD 125?

Time to roll the sleeves up and get back to work.

Ordered my NBS with the premium Lundahl transformers on Wednesday. It will contain Duelund Cast Copper Coupling caps. I am going to go with the 6H30 instead of the 6DJ8. I can always pop in a 6DJ8 in the 6H30 socket if I want to try it. Cannot just pop in a 6H30 into the 6DJ8 socket if I ordered it that way.

Really looking forward to it. It is replacing a two box solution so I will be cleaning my system up a touch as well.

Congratulations, I am sure it will be pleased, when you get it, I might have to come check it out when I am in Sac.
