Consider my post an initial impression. Sound is changing (for the better) as I burn it in. A second review is in order. Sarap!

Initially I planed to leave this sa office to be my working rig. But no, I brought it home with me. Still hooked to my ears. No tv tonight hehe.

Moving into more technical recordings now...

The Black Gate caps could use a little burn-in siguro.

Arnold,

Nakakainggit naman nyang HP amp nyo. Can I still join in the succeeding orders for the kit, if any? Next step would be to find a cheaper alternative to turn in into a pre-amp without resorting to the expensive trannies.
Thanks.

Bloomed just the way I like it with an Analysis Plus Ipod Cable. Bass much more controlled now. And it opened up some more. Nice. Ayoko no isoli sa friend ko itong cable. I couldn't resist. Ferdie's shipping me the cables.

Dogears signified interest in the Kit. I need at least 4 people para maging feasible for procuring parts.

So, if there is anyone else interested, let me know through this thread:

1) Dogears
2) Nocty
3) ??
4) ??

good! at least you have the option to choose between a tube amp and a ss amp, depending on your mood. :)

arnold's head amp looks good. but i'll have to pass. i can't justify getting another amp.

When you clamp aluminum, use wooden pads. Better yet mount them on a wooden rig using existing screw holes. Then clamp on the wood base. This way, only the bits touch the aluminum. That's how I would have done it. The clear tape doesn't offer much protection.

dhogears!
Ilang linggo na kong nakabalik, sobrang tadtad lang sa trabaho kaya nanahimik. Buti ngat nakakinig pa ko nung Black Saturday. Pati nga yung earpads ko pang 414 di ko pa nadadaanan kay Asar. I have to do this in the next couple of days. Yung kliente ko 24/7 kasi trabaho kaya pati tuloy ako 24/7 din trabaho.
