3  AUDIO FORUMS / Music / Kirsten Edkins - Shapes & Sound (180g Vinyl LP)

Not a very impressive musical piece. Kind of a letdown. Kind of Blue imitator. Mastering and sound is topnotch. Music flow a bit drab.

This all after one spin. Will try again in a few months.

That is what happened to me. My son-in-law showed up one day with two boxes of a 100 or so albums. He use to attend library sales and had many duplicates. Lot of old rock that are many of my favorites. Some were abused but most just needed a good cleaning.

Enjoy!

It is hard to tell what is going on here. Don't like the PT and OP tranny laminations being parallel oriented to one another. Solid state rectification limits tube rolling. Will the seller send inside pics?

I do have one of each soild state and tube rectification with PCB and hard wire of Steve's kits. When time permits there is a plan of doing an A/B comparison.

I had the time to pull the bottom off the amp yesterday. You can see on pins of the sockets for the input and power tubes from the inside, but the rectifier tube socket is obfuscated by a PCB that holds the fuses between it and the power transformer. Unfortunately, that leaves me no closer to enjoying my amp again.

Well that's great news, you're right, I could get these in the mail Priority tomorrow but those should reach you earlier or the same time. Glad they are on the way.

You're welcome. I always try to have tubes on hand for my own backup or to help others. Picking them up over the years I have boxes of them.

I'm eager to hear your impressions when the SEWE300B is up and running! I suspect it will sound fantastic.

Lon,
The offer is exceptionally gracious of you, thank you. I just received a shipping notice from the vendor in AZ. The OC2ís I ordered today are scheduled to arrive Saturday. Thatís probably sooner than we could get anything arranged Iím thinking. I really appreciate you checking your inventory and the offer to send them my way. I should probably wait and see if the tubes scheduled for Saturday pan out. Please know I really appreciate your offer and especially all the wisdom youíve shared on the forum over the years, I Ďve learned a lot from your posts.
Thanks
Malcolm

You all might be unaware of this but the owner of a reputable vacuum tube dealer in Orlando Florida is a gentleman by the name of James Cross. So when I received an email from a james Cross about my want to buy ad for some ĎLil Audio fast 15ís he told me to email somebody. The person I emailed said theyíre no longer available so I donít understand what happened.
