Default Re: New owner of a KEL 84....

The picture only displays as a thumbnail so a little difficult to see any detail, but it looks 'standard'.

''On the valves, I read that Harma Cryo treated, burst tested EL84's are highly regarded so when funds allow, I may treat myself to a quad of those.'' No disrespect to cryo believers, but personally I would not spend my money in that direction...

Thanks Boondy, I like the added spice to the cryo snake oil Burst Tested! Well if you didnt burst test youre valves to establish the characteristic curves in expremities that would kill the tubes if you operated them at those extremities, youd probably shorten their life or kill them. So thats the “Burst Tested” addition to the smoke screen de-oiled.

So burst tested = stick them on a curve tracer then....

I've recently seen some "Quantum flux fuses" made with graphene coated fuse wire for £100. Some of the mugs who bought them claim they enhance low end resolution, reveal inner detail and boost tonal integrity.

Magic beans anyone?
