    Lampizator Valve / Tube Rolling Review Thread

    Correct, Low setting on GG1 is 4.5w, ie VxC. Even based on official spec, the AD1n is 8W. High even for high setting which maxes at about 7w.

    iFi audio ZEN Phono - The Official Thread

    Its 6X cheaper at $159, so that tells the tale there. Specs are not equivalent, so hard to compare and finally, its 5VDC input going to 12vdc internally, vs 15vdc going to 30vdc internally in the iPh3. This baby is feature rich, ie balanced, bigger chassis, and a few auto features. IPh3 has...

    One more pic... Part of Trident Hotel. Architect was a German Baroness. Built in the early 1980s. She also built and owned the Jamaica Palace Hotel.

    Yes, a cheap $10 SS recti is good for burning in new output tubes. Those output tubes should start showing their colours from 50 hrs already.

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

    Haven't spent much time with it. Just checked that it worked and it seemed similar to AD1n. Spent more time with a TRP demo with EL51. Very nice! Also playing with vinyl.

    for GG2 I would stick with the label until confirmed by Yoda. We only discussed Pac...though I suspect the same applies to GG2 as well. Most important is to make sure you insert tubes AFTER verifying what position is selected. 300b setting on a 45 tube could be detrimental.

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

    that is the label...not the exact spec. Mine does not say px25 or T100. Those are added as they are within tolerance of 101d and 390b setting and people want to use those tubes.

    5v is the max heater voltage used. 45 is the lowest 2.5v iirc, and 300b is highest at 5v. Total wattage of tubes allowed is about 8w or so.

    Pac has no PX25 setting, so use 101d setting for PX25, AD1n & RD too. AD1 should also use PX4 setting.

    Big7 old is autobalancing like GG1. All fine with 6a3. Pac and GG2 are discrete 5 position settings...very different operating principles.

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

    AD1 is 4v0.95amp AD1n is 4v2.0amp 6a3 is a no go in Pac.

    its a 5V recti with 1.6amp spec. Perfectly fine to use.

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

    Pac setting for 101D is 4.5v/1amp. That is the official 101d spec and used by PSvane, etc.

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

    I had no problem with AD1n on 101d setting and I confirm that PX4 is good for 4683 and AD1. Goran runs his RD27 beautifully on 101d setting.

    Yes, I think that was stock on basic Atlantic Dac.

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

    Yoda told me what to do. He went deep in explaining that 101d is 4.5v heater and there is a 10% tolerance and what is not used in voltage gets added to current.A mini auto-balancing function, not like the GG but with snuff "play" to compensate significantly. At least that is what I recall, it...

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

    Pac has no EXACT PX25 setting, so use 101d setting for PX25, AD1n & RD too. AD1 should also use PX4 setting.
