Hello and thanks.

Er, I have to admit my memory is pathetic. I like that feature you added; as well as big bass, Jack enjoys a Guiness!

Hello.

The TLs are ancient; they were built in the early 1970s and are a modified Hi=Fi Answers Design, but similar in principle to the Cambridge R50. I use them only for the bass they can provide, the other units have either been removed or disconnected.

It's all part of the plan (ho-ho) I have Jordan JX92s, I have built a pair of cabs for these, but one is not complete and the other in "evaluation" format. They are semi-elliptical in section and made from two layers of thin aluminium filled with expanding foam. Top and bottom is MDF with the front panel being MDF and lead. I should add that a friend came up with this concept.

I have some Kelly ribbons, but am using a pair of NEOs instead.

The plan is ultimately to tri-amp (= more valves, and fewer nasty reactive things like capacitors and inductors) it being sort of bi-amp at present. But there's a lot to do first.

All the best

7N7

Default Hello 7N7

Hello 7N7 and everyone else.

I too, am a newbie, and found this forum because it seems to have a good Speakers Corner. Although I'm mostly interested in valves, I've also built pick-up arms (which work well), transmission line loudspeakers with valve active crossovers (they're OK too), and electrostatic headphones (they once caught fire). I now use commercial E/S headphones...

Does anyone know why "tube-rollers" are called that?

EC8010: A superior triode indeed

Were you wearing the cans when they "combusted"?

As for the tube-rollers, perhaps it's something to do with beer/vodka/scotch/alcopops?

Hmmmmm,

We seem to be getting some exotic valves in the forum as of late.

My only attempt at "tube rolling" ended in a waft of barium and some broken glass.

Cheers,

Default tube rolling

there's a waft of something else going round the Audioasylum at present and it's not the smell of barium ! Some sort of bovine efluent methinks

ps. John , did you get my email ?
