    And now what did you do TODAY?

    Where I live there are quite a few owls ... bad place for small animals and even cats.

    The album is simply spectacular. I really liked "September Second"

    Am I the only one who uses 450Vdc output?

    Megatron Electrostatic Headphone Amplifier

    I have been focusing on gain tubes. I've been alternating the E80CC, E180CC, 6189 ... and I think the E180CC (Mullard/Philips) is the one with the best balance (quality vs. gain level). I liked the E80CC a lot but the gain increase was minimal compared to 12AU7. For the driver's tubes, I've been using ECC803S and several "esoteric" 12AX7 for a while, but I opted for the modest ECC83 Svetlana "Winged C" and a pair of Mullard CV4004 with unknown mileage too. IMO the most critical here are the gain tubes so I have not wasted much time here. As for the "Jiml/Gilmore" modification to raise the current to the plate of the driver tube, I think it was a good upgrade (thanks to both of you and Mwl for sharing it). If I'm not wrong, only Michael and I did the mod?

    Has anyone continued to investigate something about preamp tubes? I still use the E180CC instead of the 12AU7.

    Behringer clone DT770

    I forgot to comment that the German-Maestro also have identical Beyer housings and I would swear they also use the same drivers. I have several German_Maestro at home and they are very similar to their Beyer counterparts. German-Maestro webside

    KT77 application in Stax amps

    I think that Michael and I talked about that project at that time and decided to put our attention to the T2 mini. I don't remember how the two Sandwich prototypes ended. Maybe Congo or Matt can tell us something.
