Loving the tease… very nice. Any more info or listening thoughts Goran or feedback out there on these, would love to know more… and also do they come in black :)
Thanks :cool:. Will definitely write about this one in terms of performance as soon as it gets more hours under the hood...but as I said already now is pure magic...
And yes, they do come in black :D

I am liking the ‘Old school’ no frills necessary look of these electronics... The mono blocks in post No2 remind me of my pair of PYE HF25’s circa 1958...

Beautiful looking gear. Could you give an idea about pricing? Amps, preamps and speakers, please?

Congrats on what I am sure is an amazing preamp. Gunther most certainly knows what he is doing! Superb products.

I can firmly recommend the Tobian 12 FH speakers, crazy good!

Enjoy your system.

You are absolutely spot on in this assessment, JP. I am presently burning in my demo pair of 12FH's and with only a week logged on them, it's mind blowing what they're bringing to the table. I'm expecting to take delivery of a Tobian VR-40 300B integrated next week, but in the meantime with a lowly LampizatOr AmberAmp, the sound I'm already getting from the 12FH represents true high end.

How long did it take your pair to fully settle in?

I googled Tobian Soundsystem and came across a used SC1 for Euro 7600, is this a good price and worth getting?

Nice Goran.

Might buy a pair of VT-62 for the Lampi as I can run at 7.5V 1.2A no problem. Plus they aren't expensive;)

I would imagine even more triodes will be added to your collection, if you can't fight the disease, LOL:);)

Just checked - seller “Ouir” is known and very reliable here in CH. Unit he’s selling is quite old I would say, so i have no idea which tubes are inside and does not say in the add as well. Sorry I could not help more.

Tobian pricing might be the best kept secret in audio....please forgive the impertinent, vulgar request but might you be willing to give a hint on the 12 FH's price?
I can find nothing on t'internet

I traded my pair of Verity Amadis S against the 12 FH and that`s it. No money added on my part.

I have downsized substantially and have no longer the Tobian speakers or very expensive electronics. Very happy with more affordable gear and feel that I do not miss expensive high end devices at all. This after app 40 years as an "audiophile".
