    Differences Between Chinese and Russia 6AS7 Tubes

    Just make sure to correctly identify which are the input tubes. My MA-1 came with long chassis and before I started playing them, our local tech marked the position of these input tubes properly. I sent these pair to factory for an upgrade to mk3.3 version. I then replaced the stock input...

    And now it's the MA-1s in the system and with fewer output tubes

    Is there any quality degradation?

    MA-1 Lumen Reduction for the Red/Yellow Lamps

    Two weeks ago I have my MA-1 checked by a reliable local tech. The issue were: 1. R channel red light is dimmer than the L. 2. R channel hummed and I had to tap the 1st and 2nd driver tubes to silence it. I consulted with Ralph and he is again, correct. The tube socket were too loose. As for the...

    LDMS Server

    Hi Goran..glad that you made that decision. I have mine since November last year..I should say, Lucas provides the best customer service. He stands firm on his product and shares everything he knows without hesitation. He is a genius in this field. I replaced the stock fuse with SR Blue and...

    Lampizator DSD DAC

    Hi Adamaley, the Tak 247b give more airy top but the KR 5U4G has more grip and fuller sound. It's systems dependent. One day, I really would like to try Tak 300b. Mine is Balance version without VC..so need to sell my kidney to obtain quad matched Tak 300b. :p

    USB cable suggestions

    Time to review my FTA AES/EBU after running it for almost 150 hours. This AES/EBU version has exactly the same character of its USB cable sibling. I use this between Forsell Air Reference CDT and Lampizator Pacific. It gives the same result like USB..very expansive sound stage, deeper bass, pin...

    FTA (Final Touch Audio) Callisto USB cable

    I am not keen to share this kind of stuff as people usually considered it a subjective topic. Upon knowing about this cable, I was like murmuring, just like another bombastic stuff out there. But when more people were making noise about the positive result of this cable, I couldn't hold myself...

    Pacific dac: Lampizator's new top of the line dac

    I kept my GG for almost 2 full years..I was so familiar with what it could and could not do. When Pac arrived, I still had the chance to compare it head to head, I even replaced the GG tubes with Pac..including the recti. Out of the box..Pac was cold and shy..except for the bass which was...
