    Brimar is cheap so get it - you should have it in the stash anyhow;)

    LampizatOr Golden Atlantic + TRP

    All of them (rectifiers) which work in GG/GG2/Pac will work in TRP. Volume wise - play with volume on your preamp and volume on TRP and try to achieve bingo option as yes it makes difference (you’re not wrong)

    LampizatOr Amber 2 - heavily underestimated gem

    I believe that the one which was at my place had it at close to 3V but I might be wrong. Will try to check...

    Lampizator Valve / Tube Rolling Review Thread

    Thanks for the posts and info @adamaley ! I'm really wondering what will be your verdict about cheapish Brimar vs the really nice stash you have. And yes - I also have a feeling that if some tube type pops up here as an interesting one, price starts to increase quite a lot (like for GEC KT66)...

    LampizatOr Golden Atlantic + TRP

    Just spoke with Ked and i don’t have an answer to your question at the moment nor will have it till mid Oct. as the house is full non stop and all the listening is done purely to enjoy some music with the kids. But yeah even like this i would say they are exceptional all of them and maybe we...

    Lampizator Valve / Tube Rolling Review Thread

    I don't want to BS, no idea, as they missed themselves ie Brimar already departed when 596 landed. But get yourself one for try out, you won't be disappointed if you don't expect miracles (those are reserved for those big guns):p

    BTW - if all goes well next week and Chinese don’t arrest me for dragging bunch of tubes around, there will be one more 274b for comparison - PSvane ACME 274b

    LampizatOr Golden Atlantic + TRP

    Maybe it’s related to voltage as Lampi should use 5V rectifiers If you mean this one than i did :cool:. I’ve been listening yesterday, but with two kids around it was just a casual listening so there were no conclusions above the fact that it works and looks/glows amazing.

    Lampizator Valve / Tube Rolling Review Thread

    I’ve had that exact Brimar and i loved that recti. Compared it with a quite extensive stash of rectifiers i have and it just delivers. Maybe not the top notch one, but for the price it’s the bingo one. And btw i said had it as i gifted it to a friend who got himself a TRP and he is super happy...

    LampizatOr Golden Atlantic + TRP

    Whoops - strong start with the rectifiers:eek:... 596 adapter wise - i have the crapy Chinese one and friend of mine who had the same one, few weeks ago got himself the Woo audio one (not cheap) and he told me that for him improvement was massive - not certain why so much but still...at least it...

    Lampizator Valve / Tube Rolling Review Thread

    PX4 I have I would not say it goes into this direction while 45 (at least NOS) might do the trick to some extent. But room you can't play around with tube tricks I would say so rather try room treatments. U boat 211 just said the same :p

    Did you try any 45s? NOS ones are not that expensive and they might go into direction you need...

    Lampizator Valve / Tube Rolling Review Thread

    Advice from LF was if you have rotary switch at the back (5 position) to use 101d setting as the closest approximate for PX25. I would say same goes for the 2 position one..

    Lampizator Big7 MK2 Upgrade

    I'm interested how did you extrapolate that in the entire chain it was exactly Pacific that sounded bad?

    Lampizator Big7 MK2 Upgrade

    I'll just add on to your question - would it be a massive $ diff if you would ask to be upgraded to gg2 spec as it's anyhow same chassis (diff color)?

    Lampizator Big7 MK2 Upgrade

    Ked I know your preference towards R2R in Lampi so I won't raise the discussion towards that direction, especially as unfortunately you still did not have a chance to hear e53 (which I hope you will do in the near future)..BTW pity you did not manage to visit Al few weeks ago. In general both of...

    If I understand you correctly - you're asking if they can cohabitate in one DAC? Don't think so..it's either e53 or R2R...

    Lampizator Big7 MK2 Upgrade

    Maybe I'm not to relevant to answer your question directly as I did not hear Big7 or Big7 mk2 as such (maybe DerSiebener with tube rectification can be considered as Big7 which I had at home for several weeks) but I've heard Pac, GG2, GA TRP, Amber 3 all with Engine53 and all of those dacs were...
