Pictures of your Tube Amplifiers

Two very tongue-in-cheek shots of both my tube setups.

What difference did those make to your sound?

I'm using Stock.

If I change anything It probably would be the 2 small tubes in the middle.

Is that small box a Schitt EQ and if so do you like it?

IMHO in my system they radically changed the sound in a positive way. I had previously changed out the 2 small center preamp tubes to Brimars and enjoyed that change. The kt150s made the midrange punch and lower bass much more pronounced and full and powerful while the top end sounds perfect. I do not think I will ever go back to the original el 34s. After that change I replaced the rest of the preamp tubes with more of the Brimars. I think the changes are all massively positive. The evo 400 sounded wow stock but now to my ears it sounds wow wow wow. Highly recommended.

 

the Schiit Loki plugs in line to my vinyl setup and allows me to tweak it a little depending on albums that are a tad thin down low or run a little hot. I like it but now that I have a Puffin phono preamp I can equalizewth that instead although I have not used it for that since the Loki works so well

Here is my rendition of Maynard’s “Ultimate Gem”.  1.7 watt SEP.

 

Maynard, thanks again for sharing your design!

5 days ago I picked up my two Cayin tube mono amplifiers from the revision. For this I drove over 700 miles. Both power amps had new transformers and all 6 filter capacitors replaced. In addition, all tubes were checked and the circuit with additional fuses in front of the output stage transformers modified. The power test resulted in the following 49.7 WpC / 8 Ohm with a distortion of less 0,45 %.

 I did. What you have done with those RF7s is quite a feat. I can only imagine that they must sound amazing with those Cayin amps.

We’re you able to take advantage of the 11% rebate? Might defray the price of the Menards Ultra Definition power cord - they ain’t cheap.
