Supratek Owners Thread
Hi¬†@reimarc¬† The reason I asked about the Linlai's is that these are supposed to be good tubes but the stock you received could have been different. There is a thread about these, the ones with the E are supposed to the best and the Linlai letter...

@reimarc¬†thanks for posting Could you share a picture of the Linlai that came with the preamp? For 45 try the EML 45B, I personally like it¬† ¬† ¬†  
Linlai E 6sn7 tubes
@arcfan¬† I recently purchased 4 of the horizontal lettering tubes for my Atmasphere MP-1 Did you use socket savers? no chance you could fit all 6 tubes right?

@klh007¬†yeah I know, I was just confirming I was after that :) I know it does support it ¬†  
Best DACs under $7,000.00
@gregjacob¬† I have been eyeing the TA200, had the Terminator and May before. I use hqplayer and that allows you through the use of filters and modulators to alter the sound signature of a no tube dac if you like to experiment, now you need a com... 
HELP!!!! Newbie looking for a decent 2 channel power amp in the $1,000 range
@balooo2¬† I know no one has mentioned this before on this thread, I purchased a refurbished Adcom GFA 545? With Bob Hoppe circuits It was built by Jon Morris, for a little more over $1000, dual mono and 200w plus If you're curious I can ... 
IIR vs FIR filters. Is the sacrifice in fidelity worth the better DSP of FIR?
@hifidream¬† I would say give HQPlayer a try, best pre processing digital option, this is software, you will need a computer to run the filters, conversions, modulators etc. it does have DSP in the digital domain at any resolution and it includes ... 
Speakers that are good with tubes
@lewl28¬† Tubes do not like big swings in impedance What @hilde45¬†said, sensitivity yes it is important but the speakers with tubes (in general) won't shine if there is either an impedance difference or in general impedance under 8 ohm. I do h... 
Preamp Deal of the Century
I had a Cabernet Dual connected to my Atmasphere MA-1 and it was magical. Sold the cab dual and got a Grange currently matched to a GFA 545, well it's a GFA with the Hoppes Brain circuit SS amp, and sounds great. ¬†  
Preamp Deal of the Century
@deutscherhififan¬†the 45 XL is a product of my imagination, apologies for the confusion, I meant the 45B http://www.emissionlabs.com/datasheets/EML45B.html ¬†  
Preamp Deal of the Century
I have a Grange running Psvane 300B (supplied by Mick as stock) Black chrome, previously had a Cabernet dual, with the jarra wood?, I personally liked the cab dual finish better. The grange is a great amp, very quiet noise wise. I had a few issu... 
Preamp Deal of the Century
have a new pair of EML 300B Mesh waiting for them The EML's are my favorites tubes, on that preamp the EML 45 specifically, the 300B's for my taste is too much but it could be a personal preference. I haven't tried the TA's though or the Elrog'... 
A new way of adjusting anti skate!
But I wonder if in at least some cases, the manufacturer marks the dial as a guide only. Agreed Lew, it is just a reference scale from the manufacturer ¬† I am very impressed on my analog rig sound, the DL-301 although cheap it is incredibly g... 
A new way of adjusting anti skate!
trust the math and shoot for 9 to 11% of VTF So basically for 1.4 gr of VTF use 0.14 gr of¬† "measured AS", towards the outer part of the disc of course ¬† ¬†
