New on Audio Circle, but old on tubes
« on: 20 Oct 2017, 08:45 pm »
Hi Everyone,
My name is Radu and I am a vacuum tube addict. I've played with tubes since I a was 9, but strated serious audio stuff about 6 years ago. I've started to experiment with all kind of tubes, but I ended loving the DHT sound. I love building tube amps and preamps. I am building from scratch to finish, mostly DHT preamps and low power SE DHT amps. However, I will take on challenges with any tubes.
Here is my home : https://simplepleasuretubeamps.wordpress.com/.
I am happy to contribute as much as I can to the audio circle community.
Thank you,
Radu

Welcome Radu.  Thx for building the 4P1L preamp for me.  The preamp (with separate wooden enclosure) info listed on Radu's website is the one that he built for me.

How is the 4P1L sound?

Sounds very good, nice open sound with about 6db of gain and it is transformer coupled.

Thanks, seems a great tube and is very inexpensive.
These cast metal base Russian tubes use are great heat sink.

Hello, Radu!

Welcome to AC.

While I was looking through your website a couple days ago, I kept thinking some of the photos looked familiar. Duh. I saw them here just one day before.  :icon_lol:

I'm either getting old too quickly or I'm doing too many things at once that keeping track of everything in front of my eyes is too much for me.  :scratch:

Regards,

Michael

Hi Michael,
Thank you!
The world is spinning too fast these days...There are days I can't keep up with life myself.
I believe i forget sometimes that i am mortal...and allow to slow down, admore the nature or meditate about simple things., but otherwise speed up by them on my quest to some insignificant achievements.
Cheers,
Radu
