I talked to Sarah today, and it looks like my Torii Mark  III/IV conversion will be shipped next Monday.  It's already finished, but there's no more shipping this week due to Decfest.

Does anyone else have a Mark III currently in the shop, being converted to a Mark IV?

We need to make sure it is run in before it gets to Seattle Wink

Hey Lin,

Actually, yesterday I gave Sarah the go ahead to use my Torii Mk III/Mk IV conversion, as a demo unit at Decfest.  

With at least 5000 hours on it already (well-seasoned transformers!), I'm hoping they run it day and night to put some mileage on all those big new caps.

Less breakin  for me, and the hours won't be on my tubes!  Hope they go for it:)

Mike,
I live 80 miles from Decware and would be willing to bring it home for a week or so to make sure there are no problems with it. Grin

 No, mine's headed home after Decfest. By the time I get it, I'll have already waited six very long weeks!  

Lin,  I see you have one of those original blue Torii's.  I bought one of those new from Decware.  With good tubes, it was pretty amazing.

I'm not so sure the Mk IV would be much of an upgrade (if any) over the original Blue Torii.

You should bring your's to Decfest and have a shoot-out!

It would be interesting.

Mike

Sounds like a great idea to have an amp shoot-out!

That blue Torii sure sounds like a dark horse which might give the newer models a run for their money.

Would be a great experience, for example, to line up the CSP from the very 1st model to the latest CSP3.
In that way, one can literally hear the sonic improvements made over the years.

I'm in the vicinity of Decware already this morning, and headed to the fest later this afternoon... and I have my Torii III with me!  So I can hear III .vs. IV real time... and leave my III behind for upgrade if I like what I hear.... or..... sell my III and get a whole new IV... decisions, decisions.

Brianne (my fiance) and I area heading down that way and should be in town around 5pm or so. We're going to walk around the city for a bit, then be at Steve's around 8pm-9pm.

I'll have my SE83A with me...but it's the one that was recently tweaked by Steve, with about 100 hours on it since then. I'd like to hear the jump from SE83A to Torii MKIII and Torii MKIV!

I hope all you guys have a good time at Decfest.  Sounds like it'll be great fun!

I'm very curious to hear what people attending, feel about the new Mk IV running EL34's versus the "voiced" KT66's.  Should be interesting.

Since I'm putting my order in this weekend, I'm curious as well!  ;D

Offhand, I'm probably going for the KT-66, but I'll defer to what Steve suggests. When I describe what I'm looking for in my sound, he always cuts to the chase and gets me there more quickly - sometimes not always explaining why, but he's not been wrong yet.   Grin
