Okay, update update (man, this thread has quieted down! Has everyone's MWTP died, or are you all happily listening to music and done with tube rolling?!?
I've read through this forum and I'm talking myself into the EML Mesh. I emailed Dan (very patient, thanks, Dan) and he confirms that I have lowered voltage (.2 ohm resister in place) and 22uf caps.
I take this as a sign that I was MEANT to have the EMLs. Are people out there still happy/safe with the EMLs?Questions:
Since I think I still have one good Black Treasure, I'd love it if I could get by with getting just one to replace my wonky one. Is that doable? I'm in Brooklyn. Could I bring my BT and have it matched somewhere around here? I also wouldn't mind having the bad one checked. The box is from TheTubeStore and has a "matched and balanced" sticker with a "20" on it. Does that help?
Anyone in Brooklyn want to come by with some tubes and help this tube newbie (tewbie?) try some stuff out? There's good beer in it for you!
I have the Tung Sol 6SN7 red base Russian tubes. How good are these in comparison to the other 6SN7s people have mentioned in this thread?
Finally I can't find anything on the rectifier I'm using - a Dumont-Emerson 3222-14-3 (see pic). Does anyone know anything about it? I'm hoping it's really crappy, so I can look forward to the huge change with the EML!System
(for anyone who is interested)
I have a Sony TA4650 VFET amp that I bought in '76 (my first entry into audio). When it died a few years ago, I ended up recapping it troubleshooting, and putting in the diodes mods that will keep it healthy. I feed the MWTP to the amp section. It will be buried with me.
