    WANTED - 5687 valve or valves

    thanks for that John, have you got any ?
  8. Hello Chaps, Got a problem with my Mastersound 845 integrated that i believe to be caused by an 5687 valve. Anybody got any or a known good one, or recommendation for a particular type ? cheers, Julian
  9. Hi Chris, As per our phone conversation yesterday, i would love to attend. I will bring my PS audio directstream dac, and maybe a couple of very special pre-amps (a Herron and Rabski's old Gordon Wellford - as i will have picked it up by then). As i'll be travelling from Maidstone via M20, M26, M25 and returning home that night might be worthwhile to car share - Ade / Graham ? Best wishes, Julian

    PS Audio anyone?

    I'm on my third PS audio Dac. I bought a Cullen circuits modified Digital link, unheard, from the first owner and was blown away with how good it was. I put it up against some others in the same 2nd hand price point - to my ears it was easily better. I left a lowish bid on a std one on ebay- just to hear the difference - won it, and was still pleased with the sound - although not as good as the Cullen. I directly auditioned the Cullen against a directstream Dac, and it was night/day better (should be, it was 2k dearer - 2nd hand prices). Very happily lived with that for a year, then downloaded the free updated firmware (to version Snowmass, i missed out on the previous version), and again another clear jump in performance. PS audio release new firmware roughly once a year - it's like getting a new dac every twelve months ! Never had anything to do with the importers as nothing has ever gone wrong. I do subscribe to Paul's blog - i don't always agree with him, but it gives a lot of insight into the company, their philosophy, their goals etc, and i think they are one of the good guys - it's also quite interesting reading. If you would like to listen to it, you are most welcome.... but it's not for sale. kind regards, Julian
