My Beresford DAC is now for sale.

I'll have to get some pics up in the FS thread tonight or tomorrow.

When the MPX/Soloz silver IC gets here I might melt in my chair...
Get you a Bendix 2C51 and you'll throw that stock GE tube in the trash.



BTW: break in is a huge factor.

Give it 200 hours (also, listen throughout for some very very strange "middle-ground" changes ... at times it sounds really strange but it eventually settles nicely).

Also, order a OPA2228 opamp from digikey. My fav for the Paradisea.

Congrats!

Are you bringing any tubes to the meet tomorrow? I think all i'm going to bring is my HD650's to compare the cable...

I'll have a quite decent cryo treated RCA 2C51 that you can try immediately (not being used for anything).

I've also got a few different OPAmPS.

My "exhibitor rig" will be using the Havana DAC (and the Bendix 2C51) ... while Shelly will be using my Paradisea+ (with a TungSol 396A tube) with her GS-1.

Sadly, my Bendix 6385 did not come in today. It might come in tomorrow. I'll make a run back to the house mid-day to check for it (I'm within 6 miles or so of the meet).

That said ...

Any and all tubes can be pulled from any and all DACs if you want to try them out later in the day.

See you the morrow.

Man!

No lie.

I so so miss those IEMs.

Can't tell you how many countless hours they got me through my work day repairing fork lifts on Houston's various port facilities.

(really)

All I've thought about since selling them is when I'll be able to get/afford another pair ... and also ... what Shure's next top of the line IEM will look like.

Die hard Shure fan boy here.
