gjm, your container will take six months in a leaky boat.

I just spent six months in a leaky boat
Lucky just to keep afloat

Aotearoa, rugged individual
Glisten like a pearl
At the bottom of the world
The tyranny of distance
Didn't stop the cavalier

From the lyrics from a famous band called 'Split Enz' who are from Auckland city New Zealand.

A bit of down under humour.

Lol !

The locals call it 'Paradise'. There is a reason for that.

At the moment we're wondering why we packed as much stuff as we did!

Sweet as Bro.

All the New Zealand locals are in Australia. You would think New Zealand was another state of Australia. New Zealand has alot in common with UK. It's cold with snow, it rains most of the time. They speak funny too with similar old buildings to UK. New Zealand is on a fault line and has volcanos and black sand beaches (yuk).

The best of all, you will be closer to the best country in the world: Australia. My kids say that every time we go on overseas holidays and return to Australia.

All the best in New Zealand. There is lots of excellent audio their. Morten can agree to this with his Power Amp. I have a pair of Image Revelation Speaker from New Zealand.

I would just also like to thank Morten for sharing his modifications with this forum. He is a champion.

Peter - you're just annoyed at living on the West Island.

Black sandy beaches? I hope the link works!

Apologies to all for the (temporary) off topic-ness.

But the hifi here is good (and innovative), if a little more sparse than I was used to in the UK.

I've been so crazy busy at work lately that I have not really had a chance to put some hours on the new tubes - and to listen... Anyway, I think that I have around 50 hours on them now, and I can begin to form an opinion on them...

First of all:
They are LOW microphonic tubes, nice for the Tram II

Next:
The pull more current than 2,5A on the heaters..! I think this can be a problem if the cooling is not large enough, for instance like with the original small heat sinks in the Tram II. I have lot's of cooling area, so for me it's not an issue. However, the more current running through the filaments, the more noise. So noise is a tiny bit louder with these, than with the Treasure 2A3's. Not a problem and still much lower noise than with the original regulators, but there is a tiny bit more hiss when putting the ear to the tweeter.

Finally, the sound:
These are 2A3's on EPO or something..! They seem to have no color at all, they are crystal clear and the dynamics and transient response is noticeably better than all other tubes I have tried in the Tram II. Basically they sound like the perfect amplification device... No colorations, totally transparent and it's like they detract nothing from the dynamics and the flow of the music. Compared to these all other tubes I have sound like ''filters'' to some degree. Filters that tints the sound with a bit of color, or filters that takes a bit away from the dynamics etc... The transparency does not mean that they are bright, the treble is actually a bit better integrated than with the Treasures (due to the low microphonics I think). But since these does not get in the way of the signal in any way it's like moving a few rows forward at the concert. The connection with the music is more ''direct'' somehow. So if your system is already a bit forward, then the 2A3/C version might be a better match. I have not heard them, but from what I understand they have more of a vintage sound: A bit warmer and a little more focus on the mid range.

Ever since I bought the Tram II I have wanted a pair of these tubes, but the sticker-chock was tough. Now that I have the I realize that I should just have bought them from day one, it has been too expensive to get all those other tubes hoping that they would be as good for less money - they are not...
