Other DACs / Re: Abbas Audio DAC 3.0
« Last post by data on April 06, 2020, 08:18:40 PM »
I got to try Matt's Abbas as he had it sent to me and picked it up a couple of days later.

I am impress, nothing stands out, it is all very real sounding, nothing over cooked or under cooked, not syrupy and not clinical or thin, everything just sounds correct and real sounding.

The Western Electric 300Bs certainly bring some big money, here is a set of genuine new in box engraved base 1930s - 300Bs i sold to a dealer in the US a wile ago, and as you can see he wants big money. But they are really new and the most in demand 300B ever made.

These will sell to some Asian buyer who will never use them but put them in his display cabinet to show to his friends. Imagine the Oh's and Ah's over 4 perfect 10 67 date stamped matched boxed sitting there , just out of reach. It doesn't worry me if I never sell them, I've got plenty of amps to use them in including the original Kegon Balanced units. They came with U52's and WE VT-25's as the driver tubes doing the WE-300's in PSE, all silver, nickel 55 laminations double C-Cores, transformer coupled.
Cheers.

$15000.
By the way, a mate in Melbourne is on the email list for the new production of the WE 300b tubes and the latest is that the failure rate in production is around 10% and they are at least a year away from shipping anything. I do hope they go into production.
 By the way, the molybdenum plate tubes made by AN in conjunction with Psvane don't sound to bad now they have some hours on them just as the Takatsuki's need at least 230 hours to sound how they should.
Cheers.

My apologies Steve for not replying to your question. The only forum I sporadically post on is the Hoffman forum  these days. We always have in stock match pairs of the Takatsuki tubes however with the decline in the dollar against every other currency seemingly in the world, the retail is now $2500 a pair. I also have a matched quad of 1967 manufacture WE 300b tubes for sale if you are interested in. They were an original supply from AN for a pair of Kegon Balanced monoblocks which were never installed. Shame about this bloody virus, there was a hifi show starting Friday afternoon in sydney if but for the grace of God.
1967 manufacture WE 300b, I am interested, a price please

That's the problem with very old, tends to be very rare.

Be nice if the cost of the VSF's could go the same way with the new machinery, but I fear the winding machines might not be suitable and maybe they need to be done by hand, but I live in hope :)
