Re: Another MET1 on the forum - NO problems

For whatever reason buffer mosfets for C and L irf710 died. Luckily I had the same type available among my electronics supplies. When I changed R,C,L transistors to other brand (bought it long time ago from digikey) I noticed some sonic changes. More dynamics..... I like it... :D Next, I'm getting r...

Re: Integrating Two-Channel Set Up Into a Home Theater

Connect FR and FL from your Denon to Theater IN. It makes signal pass through "untouched" by your CJET3SE. Your mono blocks are connected to CJ main out. Denon processor controls volume. Do not connect CD player or anything without volume control to Theater IN. Lower your Denon volume and test it.

Re: Conrad-johnson, First Watt, and Serenity Acoustics

great speakers! I always loved B&G drivers and at some point I'll probably DIY speakers using bohlender graebener drivers. Neo3 implements nicely with ML electrostats.

Jeffrey, you are always busy making great sounding gear perfect!!!!

Re: Another MET1 on the forum - NO problems

It has been a while since my last post. I still remain in a state of bliss with my MET-1 mod. Tried some more tubes without much success(will post later on). Being infected with "modifitis" disease (thanks Jeffrey) started looking up and down my audio path components. Going up from MET-1I did quite ...

Re: Another MET1 on the forum - NO problems

Don't worry, I'm well supplied for the next couple of years :)

Mullard Master Series 10M represents sound character similar/the same to original Mullards M8080. The ony set of tubes, which sounded quite different was Sylvania Gold Series. These would benefit darker sounding systems.

Re: Another MET1 on the forum - NO problems

Malcolm02,
I got all my tubes from ebay. These are rare items but from time to time pops up. For Mullards 10M paid about $7 each.
In general Mullards are the friendliest of them all but even so they can go noisy or microphonic.

Re: Another MET1 on the forum - NO problems

Another set of "worry free" tubes. Mullard Master Series 10M - 6c4. It probably won't get any better than this. No microphonics and dead quiet. Very neutral sounding.

Anybody knows what's INPUT IMPEDANCE of the MET1? Some time ago emailed CJ with this question and never heard back from them.

Well.....sad to see you leaving ML circle. Make sure to share your impressions of your new speakers. I've been very curious about Magnepans.

Re: Another MET1 on the forum - NO problems

Jeffrey,
Yes, I did have 0.33uF SCPs on all front channels. It turned out, Mundorf Silver/Oil 2.2uF alone, without bypass, suited my taste better.
The 0.33uF SCPs I removed are currently employed in my phono preamp with great success :D .

See you are selling your Logans. I wonder what would be your next step? Did you eventually get Statement E2?

another tubes tryout

This time Sylvania Gold. Long story short: 3 out of 5 hissing/noisy. Two tubes are fine, however sonic signature is quite different from original Mullards. I'd name it brighter and less-flat_freq-balanced than M8080. That's, of course, considering nature of my system and my personal preferences. I s...

Re: Another MET1 on the forum - problems

Difference is so obvious that I didn't even have to go through extensive listening sessions to come up with following observations: Before (with new PS caps in place and small bypass 0.15uF Sonicap): - shy on bass/lower extension weak, - satisfactory instruments separation/clarity, although sometime...

Re: Another MET1 on the forum - problems

Here it is, what I believe to be almost final version. It has been running problems free for a couple of months already. Almost final version, because I plan on removing bypass SCP after I'm sure they are broken-in completely (500h) and see if I need them or not. Also, I replaced original 0.15uF 200...

Re: Another MET1 on the forum - problems

Preamp is up and running!!! Well....at least it has been running fine for 30min. Don't want to jinx it but it looks like it will be ok. Went through all the components on pcb and found no fault elsewhere except the two mosfets in HV circuit and shorted cap mentioned above. Lesson learnt! Tubes alway...
