I've been to Singapore on multiple occasions, a really beautiful country. I hope to visit again soon.

 

Sorry about the mess, I'm in the process of moving.

Better? :grin:

 

Hello my friend

 

Looks like you have the best of both worlds. :drool:

 

I am getting a new toy which I think may interest you - let you know when it arrives.

Varies depending on location.

 

University flat on desk (Cambridge Audio 740c TOSLink input or CD - Stax SRM-006t - Sennheiser HE60:

Back at home in living room (dad's Esoteric X03SE or Sony DVP-NS9100ES - Stax SRM-006t - Sennheiser HE60):

Back at home in bedroom side-table (Onkyo FRV-5 - dad's HD650):

I do prefer to listen to speakers at home since I value soundstage a lot. The speakers also have better bass than HE60 or HD650. (of course not the mini-hifi speakers!)

Nice!

 

Let us know how it sounds.

 

We should try to arrange a tube amplification shoot out one day.

 

 

Hi,

 

Due to my other commitments, it's going to take very long before it can reach at least 300 hours, :-(

 

Just 2 hours burn-in it sounds more or less the same as my already burn-in GCHA which I like a lot. Right now it's reaching 50 hours of burn-in time, the first impression was the wider and deeper soundstage. All the details seems to be much more coherent and came through easily (more holographic presentation like I can "see" the instruments played behind my head). RS-1 with ZD has even more soundstage depth and air, W5000 + ZD also is the most natural sounding combo I'd heard, PS-1 + ZD, everything seems well-controlled with authority and liquidness. Haven't tried other headphones yet.

 

I am using NOS Brimar 6SL7GT CV1985 (brown based) and Mullard ECC35. Summary for the early 50 hours burn-in time: musical, fast and dynamic, warm, detailed, not laidback presentation, no fatigue for prolong listening (I have to force myself to stop listening), very nice looking in person but the two 6c33c-B very hot (can feel the heat even two steps away, so air-con on at all time if only Singapore has Winter), it's dead quiet and no hum yet (fingers crossed).

 

A tube amplification shoot out sound interesting, :grin:
