Got my 2ml tube of GCE today in the mail. 

First test will be the Laney KLIPP 60 watt guitar amp head on the output tube contacts.  Have to put in new EL34 sockets after arcing one output tube and socket when the impedance select switch died.  HV is running 560VDC at idle on the OTCT.   More on the connections to the 412. 

This should be interesting.

Iím in the market for equipment stands. Nothing fancy. MDF is fine. Need to look decent/good as theyíll be in the living room. Prefer $200 or less. Kit is ok as well.
Thanks,
Nick

Still cant get my head around the fact that in todays shrinking market of audiophiles there is still a market for $100k gear

Had never heard of the brand. Rather non-descript looking for such expensive amps.

This is getting boring, just kidding, color me TWL. Loom of doom for the competitors IMHO. Keep up the good work and now work on the TWL cable of ALL TIMES.

Signals and Noise / Re: Ethernet Cables
« Last post by rollo on February 22, 2018, 01:12:12 PM »
My use of I2S Ethernet cable is between my transport and DAC.  To date the best sounding I have used are TWL/PIA Ethernet and Wireworld Starlite. Open big sound no coloration noticed with either design.
  The generic cables work however not to the degree of the fore mentioned designs. A supra cable was supplied with the transport. VG just a bit warm and noisey directly compared to the others.
  These cables like all others offer a different presentation of sound. If a budget issue stay put if not try as many as you can starting with TWL and Wireworld. Have fun boys. Remember there is no best just different.
