Rivieraranch, I might be the person that appointed the Shuguand Co. the Holy Grail. I got behind in my paperwork and just signed everything thrust in front of me with out reading everything over. Sorry, next time I will do my due dilligence. You don't want to ask how the "Great Recession" really started, lets just say I won't ever dump a Pepsi on my desk again.

Bob: that is outstanding news. Thanks much. I can only imagine how many extra hours you had to pump into your schedule. Much, much appreciated.

RR: I don't know that anyone appointed Shuguang the holy grail, but I do know that, if you read those reviews, it is very clear that some people think the Treasures give the best NOS a run for their money. The specific bet you are making has been called by some. And as noted before, Decware itself offers them as the tube kit upgrade for the Toriis. For me, that made it worth the try.

Donnie, at last I know the truth. Knowing who to blame is huge. Wink

PR, looks like you'll be enjoying your new amps by this time next week.

Heard today that mine is being built. Cool

Congrats kana. Am keeping my fingers crossed about delivery. Not sure they will be here before the holiday, but it's still all good, because I did not expect anything before mid-July. Lets see, three months ago, I owned zero Decware amps. Next month, four.

Hey . . . you're almost caught up with me. I own five. Though the first, the 27th Zen amp built, I might never get back from a friend who has "borrowed" it six years or so ago. . .:)

Six years of borrowing is illegal in some places!

PR,

I saw your amp was packed on amp waiting list Steve sent out yesterday.

Your other TORII shows "waiting on part."

Mine shows "on bench."

Interesting, thanks kana. I saw Steve's note that said my amp status had been updated, but I received no list attached to it, and I could see no way to determine what that status change was.

I suspect the "waiting on part" is a reference to a transformer.

Thanks much Steve. Odd how it didn't come through with your emails. An awful lot of nice Decware on that list. Good stuff.

Happy 4th!

The first of my Toriis shipped today, along with three new Decware power cords.

Separately, I did my first tests of the two groups of Shuguang tubes I bought. The tubes tested almost identically, or at least, in the first two tests I ran, before I managed to idiotically break off a center guide pin on one of the tubes in the test socket. Sigh. Fortunately, it was one of the cheaper tubes, though that distinction may not matter a lot. OTOH, maybe it broke off because it was a cheaper tube. Dunno.

Congrats on the amp finally shipping!

Sorry about the tube. It could still work?

Actually, I think the tube still could work just fine. It tests fine. I could try to repair it, or simply mark the base with the center pin key location.
