SE34I.3 On Waiting List
05/12/12 at 13:21:13
 
My order for the new Integrated, "Rachel" is seventh on the Q. I note that today according to the Official Decware Amplifier Waiting List the first one in Q is in "testing" status right now. The second one in Q is "on the bench" and I don't mean that in a sports play context. They are assembling it with loving care.

I am now 9 weeks out. I even forgot which base I chose. Luckily the Q lists the base that is ordered. I had ordered the black figured; this is the nicest one for me. I have my pair of Mullard reissue EL34's ready to go into this thing. I just have to keep waiting.

As Big Audio Dynamite has said on one of their releases:

"Sit tight and listen keenly."

How are those Mullard's RR? Been thinking of getting a quad for Torii.

Sam, I haven't tried a quad in the Torii, but I very much enjoyed a pair in the Integrated.

Thanks Lon. Good to know. Liking the EH 6CA7's in the Torii whether or not they engage the Hazen mod(haven't heard back from Steve yet) and liked the JJ 6CA7's as well but have heard pretty good things on the "Mullards" so maybe will give them a try. At least I know they're real pentode.

The bottom line is if they sound great to you, then they're great, engaging the mod or no. My own set will be in this next week, eager to hear them.  If not trouncing the JJs, I bet they will sound really good in my second system with the Mk II.

I'm back and forth between the EH and JJ's. Nothing wrong with the JJ's at all. A really great tube. Hard to say at this point what I like better. And then the "Mullards" will be here shortly to play with.

I'll be interested in your take, and any difference that you hear with the EH's in Torii's 2 & 3.

I'll like the one that has the cleanest, sweetest treble. Smiley Previous experience makes me think it will take some time to break in the cryo'd versions.

Well, Ron sent me cryo'd JJs by mistake, so I'm a few days away again from trying the EHs.

I'm not positive, but I think that's mine on the bench according to Bob.

We'll see. I have some Genalex re-issue KT77, Cryo Mullard EL34, and possibly some black bottle EL34 in the pipeline to try.

Amp has upgraded caps, no volume, and will be run direct by an Antelope Gold DAC.

really excited as I have been w/o hifi for some time due to a move and selling off my old system....

How long does it take to wind transformers! Mine is being wound with several others.  It seems that some of the new SE34I.3 units have already hit the street.

Mine is in route as I write this. I ordered it with Vcaps so it will be a while before I can say how it really sounds.

Looks like (2) are ahead of me, with one SE34I.31 in QC.

I'll be running mine direct from DAC, with plenty of burn-in for the Vcaps - on some Hoyt Bedford 1.5.

What are other folks planning for their .31? Anyone using a capable DAC, or going with pre?

Cryo'd Mullard re-issues EL34 arrived yesterday with some Pope 7DJ8.

Would still like to hear if the output terminals are reversed as they are on the Mini-Torii...

Mine shows as "PARTS PULLED" which means that it is being assembled.

However, I am going to receive a TORII MK III this week. This amp might elbow the others out of the way.
