  1. Shallow pockets drive an audiophile to try to get a good deal online and often that leads to China and to Aliexpress, while I had good/ok-so-so/bad deals from there, I had nothing to really share until now where recent bad experiences with 2 sellers there caused me much heartache and made me doublt as to the actual sincerity and good-will of my fellow human brethren. First was seller named 'Shop5702020 Store' and person talked to was 'July', the second being a shop that at least had a name that didn't suggest 'fly by night', the almighty 'Amplifier and transformer- Store Now, I prefaced
  2. Recently got a budget Chinese single ended tube amp - the APPJ mini2013 with stock Chinese 6J1 (2) driving 6p1 (2) changed to NOS tubes improved sound by a truck-fold or a ten-load. I do not have the space or time to learn electronics, but I would like to enlist the service of one of you tube maven DIY guru-types to help recap this amp to bring it up to the standard it is capable of. Forum threads like this one: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/any-opinions-reviews-on-gemtune-appj-pa1502a.780178/page-16 although discussing the 3 tubed headphone version of my amp may aid a lot - appa

  5. oh it is you n u told me u r not an audiophile for shame! tsk tsk. so PAP.
  6. Yes it is pretty incestuous in Sg, just like M'sia...or China... or USa...or.... (what was my point?) hmmmm ok will do, off i go to ali or ebay may take awhile :)
  7. NOt that fancy lah... I bet the dude on carousell would charge me like SGD$1K and up for something like that, and ironically it won't be him providing the fancy wood or anything else. Gee I could buy some real speakers for that money...if I had that kinda kwayteow to spend... some people, ah.... But if you do decide to aid me an old destitute outcast of Singapore's harsh and unkind socio economic system wherein even the rebels and uprisers live in fancy condos and drive fancy cars... why I think your own personal karma bank account might be the better for it.
  8. Nice of you to reply Straits. Like I mentioned.... to mount AMT tweeters (if I choose to go for those) or cheap ribbon (quasi ribbon?) onto small slab of wood - maybe a space for where the cap would go? Ya something real simple :)
