Near perfect Synergy in new CSP2 and Taboo combo
01/05/09 at 02:14:02
 
I have owned both units for several months now and they are fully burned in.

Most recently in the CSP2 I was using a Sylvania black plate 5U4 rectifier, with 3 6N1P's. In the taboo I had a Bendix 6101 rectifier, 2 Sylvania black plate 6BQ5's with an old Sylvania black plate 12AU7 out front.

I decided to change the inputs and rectifiers, and what a difference. I am using RCA 5AS4 (5U4 equivalent) rectifiers in both. In the CSP2 I put a Mullard PCC88 (7DJ8) up front.  In the Taboo, I put a Mullard CV4024 (12AT7), a medium gain tube for this unit.

The music is much more detailed and involving. The grain I heard in some recordings has vanished. I am content with the tube complement I have in this equipment for now.

My Taboo and CSP2 should arrive Monday with ZP3 and ERR Radials following shortly.

I planned to try the Taboo with Mazda 5Y3GB, Everything else Mullard. In the CSP2 I have laid out 5U4G SED big bottle, Amperex Bugle Boy 6DJ8 and some Russian stuff to roll in.

Any other recommendations?

Consider 6N2Ps when you get your Radials, which I think will be higher efficiency than your current speakers (?) and the reduction in output using 6N2Ps will be less obvious.

I really like 6N2Ps especially in the CSP2.
