        Glad the plan with the tubes worked out. Seems like a fun project to work on.

        I'm happy with the 7N7 tubes I found. It limited my options, but I have 3 unique pairs and a unique driver tube in a combination that works nicely.

        Before transformer rolling, I'm zeroing in on capacitors. I'm starting with my own combo of Jantzen Superior Z-Cap at 0.1uf and Mundorf MCap EVO Oil at 10uf. I'll try Hands' combo later on.

      After much gear and tube rolling, I'm finally settling back in. Everything I have is what I want, and I don't want to sell it.

        Super 7: Cavalli Liquid Crimson if I hear one and it's more satisfying or Garage1217 if there's a better follow-up to the Horizon or Sunrise (not likely to be better than S7, but certainly simpler).

        SFD-1 MKII: A Schiit Gungnir or Bifrost multibit revision that outdoes it to my ears. Or something I've never heard of.

        HD650: Something that is the HD650 but somehow slightly better.

        Well, I'm really impressed with Gungir with Gen5 USB- I can feel source nervosa ebbing away- feels good man.

      Famous last words: Lynx -> Sonic Frontiers SFD-1 MKII or MHDT Orchid -> EC Super 7 -> HD650 = pretty frickin' endgame. Can't decide on DAC.

      Fudge. I want the modded SFD-1. Someone buy my MHDT Orchid (modded) or JVC HA-DX2000! Best prices possible will be in the next few hours.
    5. Luckbad

      After a long night of listening, I think the modded Orchid slightly outdoes the SFD-1 MKII. But the latter isn't modded yet.

        How do they compare to the Holo Spring?

        I'd have to dig up my posts about it. There are probably some in the Spring thread somewhere comparing it to the Atlantis at least. Spring has a crazy wide soundstage in comparison to almost any DAC I've used with headphones--maybe too wide for speakers. These are both more musical/euphonic, but less detailed and clean (NOS mode only. OS on Holo is the worst).

        SFD-1 MKII SE+ slightly better overall than the Orchid. The Orchid is more liquid, the SFD-1 is more detailed.

      Showdown begins tonight: Sonic Frontiers SFD-1 MKII (unmodded) vs. MHDT Labs Orchid (modded).

        Early results: Whichever DAC is connected to the Lynx AES16e wins (the other being connected to the Schiit Eitr). Finally figured out how to output to two outputs on the Lynx simultaneously. Now they're trading blows.

      Dunno what I've been thinking. The Super 7 is amazing. Never liked an amp more. Why am I letting a few noisy tubes make me want to sell it?

        Anytime you think of selling the S7, sleep on it. The next day you'll wonder what you were thinking. It's a rare and special sounding amp, not something easily found a second time.

        Get new tubes. Finding a Super 7 is really tough. You might end up looking for years for another one. Take a long walk or go see a movie. :)

      Initiated funds recall on the scam. Also heard back from him and he claims he will accept it. Legal action next if necessary.

        Start now. Get a consultation with a lawyer (is usually free). You'll usually get a little bit of advice for free and will know what the next step is if it comes to that.

      Listening to Taction KANNONs with Brainwavz HM5 sheepskin pads. Kontrabass Double Bass (Greatest Works). This is nearly transcendental.

      I've been careful to avoid trying the DX2000 from the Super 7. Damnit, it's glorious. I don't know if I can sell these things anymore.

        I'm sure it does give the HD800 balls, but I hate that headphone with a fiery passion. I've very nearly been able to tolerate heavily modded HD800s, but still significantly prefer the HD650.

        So, I don't like the HD800 either, but hearing a STOCK HD800 through a modded Mk1 S7 made it sound entirely different. Mk2 with mods also makes it sound a lot better, but there's something special about the OPTs in the Mk1...

        @msommers I really like the ampsandsound Mogwai still. I haven't heard it with the optional upgrades either. I was thinking of getting another when I found this and had to give it a try.

      I have login problems as well but if I go from a bookmark it is fine. If I click on an email notice link it will not login at all. And if I am logged in on the site and click on home, I get logged out. Must be a tracker as I use the Privacy Badger plugin for firefox. No ad blockers though. Weird.

        You might want to check what permutation of http/https and www/no www your bookmark has. Login cookies here only work for one combo. Privacy Badger might do something on http if if there's a tracker on the site too.

        I haven't logged out since early this year, maybe longer. I was having problems logging in. I when I finally got logged in, I didn't know what I had done to allow that. (I had tried several things at once.) Chrome on Win10.

      Thought about posting about 7F7 tubes in the Saga thread. Decided too many people would find out about them if I did.
