Zu Druid & Definition Roundup
Hi Mark,I just replied to your email and then came over here to read the discussion.  My M60's worked great with the Zu Definitions (8ohm speaker) and they were equally outstanding with the Zu Druid V (16ohm speaker).  If you are concerned about i... 
Elrog 300B vs Takatsuki 300B tubes
Charles, I was using the Luxman DA-06, along with the Melody P2688 line stage. Both are fantastic for the price, but going direct with the Big7 to the Audions gives even greater transparency, intimacy, ambient cues, and mellifluous midrange and tr... 
Elrog 300B vs Takatsuki 300B tubes
I've been using my Elrogs in my Lampy Big7 for about a month without problem. After George replaced the set that was about to fail (anode was glowing red in one spot) in my Audion Golden Dreams, I didn't want to risk it going forward. George thoug... 
Elrog 300B vs Takatsuki 300B tubes
Mathias, what about the Audion Golden Dreams? They are parallel single ended triode (PSET) amps. Thanks...and your help is very much apreciated 
Elrog 300B vs Takatsuki 300B tubes
Charles,Answered on your system page. And thanks for the "Parkers Mood" tip...I'll check it out. 
Elrog 300B vs Takatsuki 300B tubes
Hey Charles. Yes, emotion is the key word from an experiential standpoint. It's what music is all about (IMO) and any change in the equipment or software that elicits more of it is a good thing in my view. BTW...I listened to "Fingerpainting: the ... 
Elrog 300B vs Takatsuki 300B tubes
I bought two pair of Elrogs from George at tubesusa as well. I might have around 20 hours on them at this time in my Golden Dreams PSET's. They replaced KR Audio balloons and I have to say they were an immediately noticeable upgrade. It'll be a li...

Great to hear, Spirit! Would you say the Nats are well-made and reliable? How about sound staging and "3D imaging"?

Spirit - bump this thread in hopes you can comment further on how you're digging your NAT's? 
Zu Druid & Definition Roundup
Hey Spirit, just noticed your post. Congrats on finding an even better match for your Def4's! Are you able to separate out the individual contributions to the improvement from amp and preamp? Also, the NAT SE2SE shows up as a GM70 based tube? Did ...

Charles - you are so very right. There are many fine components available today, but finding a synergy among room, ears/brain, and system is a trial process. Still, what may have been one preference in one room could very well be reversed in anoth... 
Zu Druid & Definition Roundup
Charles - my brother is, indeed, quite happy with the Black Shadows and the Zu Definitions Mk4. It was good to have he and his wife experience the qualities of this system at my house and then be able to enjoy essentially the same system in his ho... 
Zu Druid & Definition Roundup
Charles - yes, my brother talked me into selling him my Black Shadows. I was going to purchase a new pair with options that interested me, but that ran into some issues. I then jumped on a used pair of Golden Dreams and Robert Hovland re-capped th... 
Zu Druid & Definition Roundup
Hey Charles, yeah, still around, but very busy with my new role in the company and, of course, no audio other than from an iMac and car until the house is built. Yes, I'm building a dedicated room. I will use my Druid V's / Valvet amp system in th... 
Zu Druid & Definition Roundup
Spirit - I have the Lundahl's in my Hypex modules as well. The difference is noticeable. I would imagine with your custom grounding scheme, the noise floor should drop further.I'm in audio purgatory right now...I've been in an apartment without my...
