Cables / Re: How much difference could a simple Banana plug make

KL makes some great kit, especially like his RCA connectors.

I bet those banana plugs sound great.

I am using bare Auditorium 23 wire connected directly to the driver, though I am about to move to 16ga Duelund tinned copper. I like that stuff a lot.

I have tried similar products before and they do work, but i got tired of the cleaning everything i find just the process of removing and then reconnecting leads as we try bits, tends to work in reconnecting the contacts.

I had a 4 Jupiter Copper foil caps laying around so i put them to good use, This leak just did not quite cut it against the other leak, so i installed 4 of these caps and the improvement is substantial. Now it is close, but as i said before its no longer a cheap rebuild.

Just thought that I should let you know, although I haven't tried this, but it looks fully quantum, https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/new-tweak-its-fantastic. From what I have read, so far, I would describe the effects as quite amazing and fully quantum or fully sick.

Just thought that I should let you know of my experience with the https://kleinnovations.com/kle-innovations-klei-products/klei-harmony-banana/klei-classic-harmony-banana/.  I have been using these as adapters, attach to the existing bananas, and they sound great. Just better sound, timbre, PRaF, etc across the audio range.

Others have indicated exceptional results with them also, on these threads https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/how-much-difference-could-a-simple-banana-plug-make and https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/binding-post-jumpers-new-product. From posts I have read they seem to go very well with dueland wire and helix wire.

Would love to know your thoughts?

Here are two fixes for the grid resistance on the 50 tube. I will post two circuits later today .
I have been playing around with some grid chokes in place of the standard grid leak resistor . I experimented with a few different brands and different inductions. All worked very well and gave there own signature to the sound . The one that I only had one of seem to work best . That was a Lundah LL1670 choke. It may not be to every ones taste as I find Lundah transformers can be too clean sounding for my liking. But this one work very well.

The other way to fix this problem is to increase the current coupling cap from .47mfd to 1mfd by adding another .47 in parallel . You also need to decrease the grid leak resistor to 100K .
2w resistor sound better than the small wattage. I used a Allen Bradly
I hope this will help you all :D
