another soon to be a "Tubero"
sir is it true n tube amps dont need tone controls? just the audio source, the tube amp andthe spkr only?
this is more of a personal preference, but i observed that almost all tube amp users find tone controls unnecessary, that includes me
Agree. After finishing Tony's kit, I found my setup sounded better with the equalizer disabled. I do have to mention that my integrated amp is "digital" The equalizer, source selector and volume control are all push-button operated, no dials on the amp.I also found that the sound is affected by the choice of tubes. 6bc8's opened up the highs but less on bass. 6bq7's had good bass and mids. It was fun listening to how the cymbals, high hats and tambourines sounded with the different tubes.
It sounded better because they sounded more natural, w/o passing those digital processes & a handful of op-amps, i avoided them in my signal paths as much as possible, different tubes have they're own "sonic signature" its just a matter of choosing the one that suit your taste... now you're into "tube rolling" congrats & +1 for you
i'm trying to build tube tone control with baxandall filter using submini tube 6N16B to see if it will enhance more my tube amp. i'm happy listening to the amp with out tone concrol but i want to minimize the midrange area. minsan kasi me mga music na puro midrange na nakakarindi sa tainga....lalo a yung mga MP3 na di maganda pagka convert....kaya mostly gamit ko audio cd lang.
Some purist want their sound and music from vinyl records and everything is out to the tubes.....oh BTW,may mga nagpo-produce pa ba ng vinyl records ngayon, sa internet kasi me binibanta pang players at mahal pa?
alam ko meron pa, meron nga ako dito mga vynil 80's na pop/disco mga long remix version, anybody interested, up for grabs
sa pinoydvd.com po sir, abang lang kayo dun. Nakabili ako dun medyo napamahal ako since nagpalit ako ng cart/stylus. Almost pareho na nung bili ko sa player mismo. Iniisip ko na lang tatagal naman yun kasi di naman masyado magagamit. Bumili lang ako dahil gusto ko mapakinggan ulit yung LP collection ng mother ko. Blast from the past talaga. Gagamitan ko pa ng tubes para todo retro na hehehee
