Well, Dave got me in the mood to buy so this is my next Dusty Groove order. I've also been buying a lot of Pop Markets Daily Deals.  Mark.

PS...Dave or Lon,  when ordering from Japan, does the currency conversion make the CDs less or more expensive than ordering them from the United States?

PSS...by the way, yesterday I bought a vinyl copy of Bob Dylan's "Biography" for cheap on ebay...$35 for 5 unplayed LPs.

Item      Quantity/Format      Each      Total
Buddy DeFranco — In A Mellow Mood       1 / CD       $13.99       $13.99
Buddy DeFranco — Cooking The Blues       1 / CD       $13.99       $13.99
Charlie Rouse — Moment's Notice       1 / LP       $9.99       $9.99
Jaki Byard — On The Spot!       1 / CD       $3.99       $3.99

Mark, if you're getting Japanese cds and you order enough and get the postage manageable, it's always cheaper than getting them from an American source, because they're basically doing the same thing and adding a bump for themselves. . . .

These Live recordings of Monk's first trip to Japan in 1963 are just brilliant. Monk was at a peak in his playing...

I posted this in the ZP3 thread but here is where I live, so I have also posted it here...  Mark.

Four Triple Mica GE 5751 / 12AX7 Black Plate Tubes

I just bought the above tubes to try in my ZP3 and Jolida CD player.  Currently I have Raytheon 12AX7's in both...bought from Mike here, which are very nice.  I just wanted to try something different.  Looking at the codes, I think these are from 1955.  I'm not sure why but I was the only bidder so I got them for $125 plus $8.90 S&H. I've given the link to the auction on ebay.  Take a look at the pictures and listing and tell me if I'm missing something...these should have gone for much more in my opinion. They are highly rated by Joe of "Joe's Tube Lore".  Has anyone else tried these in the ZP3?  Mark.

The auction write up..."Four 5751 / 12AX7 GE Black Plate tubes.   As seen in the pictures, matching date codes are on each set, meaning that the first two match, and the second two match.  These tubes read extremely strong.  The readings are as follows: 1725/1725, 1700/1700, 1650/1650, and, 1700/1725, and are therefore, very well balanced."

What Joe said..."GE 5751-WA Black Plate - This is a '50s production tube. Many tube freaks say its simply a relabeled RCA, but I own RCAs and there are subtle internal differences and rather dramatic sonic differences compared to that brand. This tube is often found as a military boxed government contract tube (ex.:JG-5751) and is always in my experience boxed in a white date coded box. They invariably have production dates in the 1956-1959, or so, range. Its got shiny black plates which are shaped differently from the later GE grey plate versions of this tube. OK, enough physical description, how does it sound? Well to my ears its a more refined and yet more lively tube than those in group one. It has a good linear frequency response with fairly good HF extension, if not quite as palpable in the mids as a few others in group 2, but not by much. It measures like a dream too. Like all early 5751s I've ever tested (1955-1965, or so) these guys are unbelievable tight in terms of gain, low noise levels and vanishingly low microphonics."

Those tubes are probably going to sound really good.

Right now, back to this, it sounds so so good with the Torii Mk II now in Dad's system! I love this music, and these recordings.
