I buy my KR tubes from best300b.com. It is run by Lukasz’s son Frank in Poland. Believe they are the only source for the higher cost RK versions. I’m in the US. Sometimes there is a small import fee. less than $50.Dumb question: i was curious how much these tubes cost so i turned to google. I can’t seem to find the KR 242 that is so highly thought of. Where do you guys buy this tube in the US?
First time poster - long time reader here. I bought the SuperKomputer and the Pacific that were on show at Tampa a couple of weeks ago. Needless to say, it’s been a couple of good audio weeks. I hooked up the SuperKomputer first and that made a big improvement. Over the last couple of days, I brought the Pacific online and ... shall we say - I’m impressed. Just awesome - so I’ll be reading everything and asking lots of dumb questions and enjoying the music all the way. Thanks in advance for your indulgence.
I just wanted to let you know I was having a bit of a 'blah' day, but your excited text messages along with this post were a real pick me up! I'm so glad that you are the one that took the digital front end from Florida and it's awesome that you got to hear it in action at the show before you brought it home.
As I was mentioning, that Pacific has some hours on it, but will probably continue to improve even more over the course of the next month or so. As great as it is, it will only get better!
Pac circuits has never been changed from start till today. All other Dacs have been standardized, but I think special customizations were permitted till recently. R2R chipset, chipless DSD, tuning for certain tubes, gain switches, etcMost forum topics have been beat to death. But yeah, the technical thang is a bore but it is still curious.
The real point was the misuse of triodes and the consequences of such misuse.
Another point is which of the 53 million circuit variations Lucasz has tried are you actually listening to? What you experience will be very dependent on which variant he felt cool at the time.
Hi Adam,Have you posted impressions of the Teslas yet? I must have missed it.
I'm assuming the Teslas are a variant of the AD1
