NOS Vacuum Tubes

We're always on the hunt for exotic NOS tubes. Our audio buddies and us have just scored a batch from UK and we'd like to share the pictures on our little treasure chest here. Some are mainstream and some are not.

One of our specialty is to use non-mainstream high quality NOS tubes in our designs. This way, our customers pay peanuts and yet they could get extremely high quality sound with those legendary NOS brands like Telefunken, GEC, Cossor, Mullard and etc vacuum tubes.

Tannoy Autograph Mini

Greetings! 

If you know me, I'm a fan of Tannoy's dual concentric speakers. I've owned Tannoy Arundels and Tannoy HPD 385A previously. I nearly got hold of a pair of Tannoy Gold but I missed the chance and regretted until today. I've even posted pictures of the Tannoy HPD 385A multiple times in this and my previous website - diy-audio-guide.com. 

I still own the HPD 385A but it was retired as the surrounds had rotten and I do not have the space to place it for now as this pair of speakers is huge! It will resurface some day for sure, when I upgrade my house or retire to the country side where property prices are more reasonable.

Why am I bring this old story up here? Well, I'd like to share a picture of the setup number "n" of a personal close audiophile friend that I knew for over 15 years that is using the Nightshade Miniamp that I built quite some time ago with Tannoy Autograph Mini.

One would shun this type of placement or setup since it is placed on a shelf with no proper speaker placement at all. Also, the 0.7W output would be so under-powered for Tannoy Autograph Mini. Before you comment on all these, please bare in mind that this is just for casual listening, and therefore is just simply placed merely for convenience and ease of use. 

If you know him, seen and heard his real setup, you would be amazed by his masterpiece and how well it is setup meticulously to the very last details. He is one of the audiophile that I truly respect and praised.

Some background of Nightshade Miniamp is below:
