The TV-2C/U was a crazy low price, something like 50% of the usual going price for units in the condition it is in, and I totally couldn't pass it up. It didn't come with the original manual(s), sadly, but it did come with a working tube setting roll. So at least I don't have to dig up the printout binder with settings. The previous owner clearly loved it very much, going by the condition interior. Very clean with minimal wear and tear. It is freaking huge. Like 48lbs in a small suitcase form. It exudes the same smell that a military surplus store does (or a storeroom on an old base). The best part is that it has a freaking built in Septar socket. I can finally test the 829B and GU-29 tubes I've been collecting for the past few months. That and it'll make it so I can test two of the more common tubes at the same time. That warmup time kinda makes it hard to quickly test tubes, and that puts a major damper on trying to test and sort hundreds of tubes.

Just amazing gear ;-) You're probably going to get hit up by all the tube amp owners out there! I'll get there one day...

Best combo/dongle/interface/audio card fits the best to Sennheiser PC38X/PC37X?
I have been considering Schiit Fulla 4, THX Onyx and Qudelix 5K for my PC38X seeking something better than apple/samsung dongle and there are so many awesome dongles and audio equipment, but having a f*ckton of options cand be scary, so if there is any better option (with mic input) I would like to know

How to connect my laptop to DROP + THX AAA™ 789 LINEAR AMPLIFIER
I have the Focal Elex. I plug it into the mini plug audio output on my HP laptop and listen to Youtube music, and some Wav tracks saved on my computer. How do I connect the following unit into my laptop to improve my listening experience? Do I need a special cable that goes from my laptop into the DROP + THX AAA™ 789 LINEAR AMPLIFIER ?

The upcoming Drop HD 800 in the works vs my existing Drop Focal Elex
I'm very interested in the upcoming custom Drop HD 800 https://drop.com/buy/drop-sennheiser-hd-8xx-headphones#overview. I'm aware some noted mastering houses use the older HD 800(S?) so that peaks my interest in them. It seems the Senn is sometimes used to identify any treble artifacts in tracks. I currently use the Elex, and I really like the relaxed, fairly accurate sound. 10 months of use now, and I just had the left driver fail. Drop is sending another new set as I type. I feel like I'm dealing with a finicky product with the Elex, and that is a drag, but the sound is working and I enjoy them. Oluv, on Youtube, compared the Elex and the HD 800S. The Elex was better in some ways, though some felt otherwise. I guess I could sell the Elex if the Drop HD 800 smokes it. I see that I can return the Drop HD 800 if I don't like it, so I just ordered it. Shipping in November 2021.

CTH + SDAC is on the fritz. Can someone help?
So I've been using my CTH + SDAC for a couple years with no problems. However, within the last month or so, I've been running into a few issues: some hissing in the right channel (which is only really audible at 0 volume) and sometimes there are clicking sounds from the box during which the sound cuts out. It seems like it's struggling to stay fully active for some reason. I just bought a replacement 6922 tube to see if that would fix the issue. It seems to have solved the hissing, but there's still intermittent clicks that cut the audio. It's the same clicking sound that happens when the unit's LED changes from red to white and allows audio through during normal operation, but it will happen repeatedly and quickly in succession, without the LED changing, and the audio will go in and out. Has anyone had this issue or know what's going on?
