I love the jfet, I use it slightly more often than the tube pre although they sound somewhat similar. The tube pre has a slight transient compression that could be what you want or not in any given situation. I feel like the jfet has a more extended low frequency response. I like it for voice over r...

I have a pair of Radio Shack TOS to SPDIF converters for use with my G5, one for input and one for out. They sound great. I can't say I notice any sound degradation, YMMV. It seems to me that its merely a format changer and not actually doing anything to the signal. I could be wrong. Best part is I ...

I tried two different configurations, A: by pulling the outside tubes, ie 1 and 4, and B: by pulling one pair of tubes, like 3 and 4 for example. YMMV, at your own risk. sounded rad, the thing never sounded better. I had that amp for like 14 years, and since then I have acquired and built many other...

Wow thats awesome, I will certainly dig deeper into this. I am, however, unable to download the docs you posted, all I see is a blank page. Seems like it would be cool to have a selectable transformer in / out option, as well as impedance taps. Are you also using the tone control for anything? If yo...

BTW, this thing makes a pretty rad guitar amp with no modifications...

Hi, I am also looking to do some modifications on an Akai branded version of this same tape machine. I tried your link but the site is blank. Thank you very much for sharing your research and knowledge. I was planning on using some input and output transformers pulled from some ADM cards, the input ...

I used to have a similar amp, Music Man 210HD One Fifty. When I got it it had the EL34's and I switched it back to 6L6. I found that the Sovtek 5881 WXT sounded the best, also, pulling two tubes gave it a much more pleasant sound, more organic, less metallic. I was never sure if pulling tubes was ba...
