@batriq there is an Eitr and Gumby available from @Ray if the FS section.
Yeah, I saw. I was hoping to buy the gumby with Analog2 if/when it comes out.
Here's a pic BTW
For what it's worth I find Mimby to be very excellent with SEX 3.0 and my cans, and yet Gumby with that combo is even more excellent. Both of them I consider pretty sweet devices, particularly the latter which originally opened my eyes (ears) to the multibit sound. Many thanks to the kind local enthusiast who loaned me his personal unit!
Eventually I bought the Modi MB - but given enough time I went and got myself a Gumby of my own. I am very pleased with the result, it is a solid upgrade. Mimby does amazingly well for it's price, but it sounds somewhat lesser in comparison to it's big brother. The manner in which Gungnir Multibit readily serves up low-level detail and microdynamics on a smooth, and spacious stage is just addicting as hell.
Thanks @slankoe. It's great to hear that the SEX scales with the Gumby. BTW, I put in my L-pad, which allows me to use more of the volume pot. Here are the instructions (it's been a while so I think my images were taken down(?): https://bottlehead.com/smf/index.php?topic=7252.0
I was in a hurry and didn't create the mousepad cutouts necessary to avoid blocking ventilation holes on the dac1421. Result after brief photo session was black rubber marks on the dac1421 top surface. Took awhile to clean off. Custom cut mouse pad separators now created.
They are 5.5 cm in diameter. Need to leave a minimum of 0.5 cm between them. It might be too close for your wonderful sounding Liquid Glass.
Those Psvane 6SN7-SE tubes aren't going to fit. Not enough space behind and to the sides for them to fit. Negative clearance. Unless I find some 6 cm high tube socket risers...
I have been thinking about trying the Psvane CV181 tubes.
Sorry @Cspirou , I somehow missed this. Yes, there will be measurements sometime. Not sure they will happen before my multi-week break.
No prob Bob. I just like knowing what's in the measurement queue no matter where it's prioritized.
Separate names with a comma.
