Hi,Has anyone been able to compare the KR PX4s with the EML 2A3s?Also saw a post in which Vinnie said that the filament current of the KR PX4 is low enough to use the VR Mini ultracap PS instead of the standard LPS.Has anyone tried this and is there a benefit?Thanks!
How are the KR Px4s sounding?
Hello ,It would be really nice to hear what all the tubes type that work with the LIO DHT sound like. 2A3 / 45, 300B, PX4 / PX25, 101D / 205D, and SV811 / SV572 . Has anyone tried all of the tube types and would have a break down of each?Vinnie ,Is there a reason you choose to use the 2A3 for the stock version as opposed to the other types?Thanks
The Takatsuki 300Bs are simply superb. Huge, analogue, holographic soundstage. Bass extends smoothly to 30hz and as I don’t have much material lower than that haven’t tested with anything lower. Female voice is very engaging. I have been using my RWAK240+ as the DAC with great results but after switching to the DAC 2.0 it’s another level up.
If you get to the show in NYC, I have a pair of Taks, a pair of EL Rogs and a bunch of original WEs (300B and 275A pairs) to do an ear test.
Mr. Rock,The more I listen to various DHTs, the more I continue to appreciate and love the KR PX-4. I find it to be the "middle way" between the EML 2A3 Mesh Plate and the SV811-10, which Ialso enjoy for different moods and music. I'm also curious if any LIO DHT owners have tried the Takatsuki 300B? Vinnie
Although the KR-PX4's cost about 5 times as much, they are worth every penny. No buyers remorse here. Mids, base, treble, detail and vocals without etch or sibilance, its all there (or not) as appropriate. The bass seems to be as powerful as the music calls for without interfering with the mids or treble which makes for great separation of the individual instruments. Great body and texture as well as convincing soundstage. They are really revealing of what the DHT is all about and it takes the LIO up at least 2 levels. WOW!
What do you guys feel is the most detailed tube that can be run in the LIO? (Without spending crazy money!)
Hi mca, A very clean, detailed, linear, high bandwidth, and low-noise tube to use with LIO DHT PRE is the EH 2A3 Gold Grid tube... justsayin' Vinnie
