You know, Joel, that highlights an interesting thing I've noticed about the durability of tube gear... I mean, I had the wiring brutally wrong on my MSSH the first time I fired things up and was able to isolate the problem, correct my mistakes, and still enjoy a great-sounding amplifier that I'm almost certain I would have killed if it were solid state components I miswired.

Well as I said ...

Even after my 20 sec blunder ...

Even after melting a bit of power supply insulation ...

The amp still worked and sounded great!

But I just couldn't rid my mind of the nagging bit that I might be better with a whole new power supply.

If you'd smelled the same weird smell that I smelled that day ... you'd probably concur. LOL.

So I'm gonna pay to have it brought up to "new" status ... since I aim to keep the amp for the long haul and all.

Could happen to anyone Joel, don't worry about it bro. At least you know you've got one of the best manufacturers for service in the entire market backing the unit .

And yeah, tube gear can survive a lot more than solid state, and for a lot longer. You can keep tube amps in service for decades because the parts have permanence. Not the same story with opamps and crap that goes out of style every 5-6 years with the SS brethren.

As for the HF2, certainly wasn't questioning your experience Julian. I'm sure it sounded great, but I just cannot help but question hype across an entire forum. It makes me sound overly harsh at times, something I've never liked about my cynical approach (same thing happened when the HD800 first was announced and hundreds of people were talking bs about it without ever having heard it, I just got overboard).

No worries, man. I didn't think that you were. And I certainly won't pretend that head-fi isn't given to hype hysteria on a seemingly regular basis. I tend to be rather cynical about what I read too. It's so much more reliable to form one's opinion based on experience. I always take impressions starting with "Well, from what I've read..." with a grain of salt.

Joel, I definitely wouldn't be too embarrassed. I can count numerous times where I've committed far more bone-headed blunders. Best of luck getting it repaired in a timely fashion. I got a chance to listen to the raptor a bit in Ray's room with some hd800s and it was one of the pairings I liked most with the 800s. And don't come down too hard on Shelly lol. I kinda probed for the story a bit. Although, if I recall correctly, she didn't seem that reluctant to spill the beans .

Joel, good choice to send the amp in for repairs. I would be concerned that it would be a possible fire hazard. How many beers does it take to insert a tube in the wrong socket anyway? (Sorry mate, just couldn't resist that one.)

Oh yea, I almost forgot. I was talking to the organizers of the event after the show and while nothing has been set in stone, they said it's looking like Can Jam 2010 will be in Chi Town. So you definitely won't have an excuse next year Bryan . I'm already thinking about visiting my cousins so I can have an excuse to fly to Chicago.
