In an effort to help maximize your investment in the LIO DHT Preamp (and keep Vinnie building them as quickly as possible), I have volunteered to run the Vinnie Rossi LIO DHT Preamp Tube Tour 2016.
This is an opportunity to audition a pre-selected and packaged set of DHT tubes. These tubes are just a small sampling of the possible tubes that are available and will work in your LIO DHT Preamp. Don’t think of it as a definitive list of what works well or is best - rather, here is a chance to try DHT tubes from different families to get an idea of what you may or may not like in your LIO DHT Preamp.So how will it work?
First off, you need to be a LIO DHT Preamp customer located in the continental US - sorry, this isn’t a general tube loaning program and it can’t go outside the US.
Please request to be added to the tour via PM to myself (Zybar). Please don’t PM Vinnie for the tour.
When requesting to be added to the tour, you MUST include the following info:
Subject: LIO DHT Preamp Tube Tour 2016
Full Shipping Address:
Phone Number (home or cell):
People will be added to the tour based on when they request to be added and notified via email of their week. If they can’t meet their assigned week, the next person will be moved up and a new week will be assigned.
You will have 1 week from the time your receive the tubes to audition them in your system. If the box is damaged in any way, please notify Zybar via PM immediately for next steps.
At the end of the week, it is your responsibility to ship it to next person on the tour (shipping info will be provided in advance via PM by Zybar).
You can ship either USPS Priority Mail, FedEx Ground, or UPS Ground. Regardless of the vendor you choose, three things are mandatory:
You must insure the package for $1000.00
You must have tracking on the package
You must provide tracking info to the person receiving the tubes and Zybar
The tubes selected are packaged specifically for the tour and need to ship in the box that they arrived in. There are four sets of tubes (see info below). Please pack the tubes up in the same manner as they arrived (see pics below).
It is extremely important that you ship the package on time and to the next person in order for the tour to run smoothly.
Finally, please post your thoughts and comments on Audio Circle in the LIO DHT Preamp Tour 2016 thread in the Vinnie Rossi Circle. It would also be great if you share what other equipment is in your system. You can write as little or much as you like, but please keep in mind that the more you share, the more it benefits current and future LIO DHT Preamp owners.
This tour contains four (4) sets of tubes. It is extremely important that you select the proper voltage for each set when installing them. If you have any questions on how to set the voltage, please refer to the .PDF manual that you have been provided with your LIO DHT Preamp.
EML 2A3 Mesh Plate (2.5V setting only)
Svetlana SV811-10 (5V setting only)
Genelex Gold Lion PX300B (5V setting only)
NOS Cunningham CX301A (start with the 5V setting, but you can use any of the settings with this tube)
Any questions about the tour, please post in this thread or send me (Zybar) a PM.
If you have any technical questions about the tubes or the LIO DHT Preamp, please post in this thread and Vinnie will get back to you.
Have fun and enjoy!
