  1. Joe Satriani used it aswell in the 80,s i think the solos to Always and some others where tracked with only the rockman.
  2. I just found out the sparkling noise and popping sounds only happens on Class A/B on Class A it is quite and way louder in volume the Class A/B seems to be stuck on a very low volume nothing happens when i turn the master volume above half the way. Well just when i write this it started to sparkle on Class A aswell for a short moment. "The sparkling noise sounds like a guitar with a bad soldering and the noise is similar the sound when you turn a tone or volume knob and the pop noise is similar to the pop sound yoy get when you switch pickup on a bad soldered switch but it is way louder on the DT" I bought this DT25 head in a music store and it was a used amp the store is located 550 miles from my home and when i tested it in the store before i bought it it sounded perfectly fine and was very loud in volume now it is edroom volume even if i turn off the low volume mode (i usually use low volume mode as i live in an apartment) so my guess is that something has happen during the shipping It wasnt packed so good only some bubble plastic those big ones with lots of air in them and also some papers around the amp and it came in a paper box it had no no styrofoam which is almost always common on new amps well i say all new electronic gear you buy. Have you heard of this issue before? I really like this amp but this issue is worst than all my Marshall heads i use to have in the 70,s and 80,s on those i could sometimes hear Russian or Polish radio stations (or was it military communications) but it was way more quite than this. Dont know if it is profitable to send it to a repair shop as that would cost about the same to what i would pay for a used one that is in good condition.
  3. I ordered a new cable 110 ohm the tubes are the original ones i dont think they ever have been changed i bought the DT 25 head second hand 3 months ago.
  4. And i guess this ones works aswell as you wrote Sovtek is preferable in this thread. https://www.thomann.de/se/sovtek_roehre_el84_paar.htm
  5. I know how to do it i never done it on a hybrid amp though. And it was atleast 25 years since i did it i went all digital for long time and didnt touch my tube amp for a long time when i got my Helix i dusted it off again and then sold it and bought the DT Some newer amps dont need biasing thats why i asked.
  6. There is no autorized tech in my country so i have to do it myself. Or sell it. I could send it to an amp repeair tech but they are located very long from my home it would take weeks to get it back and the and the cost for the job and shipping is the almost half of the price i payed for the amp. I open it up and atleast the amp has the right powertubes. But i guess they needs to be replaced so i gonna order a matched pair I skip the preamptube they rarely needs to be replaced
  7. Yes i am using a DMX cable PD Connex DMX hmm the store i bought it on said 110 ohm i just googled and it says 120 ohm on some sites dont know if those 10 ohms really made a difference? As it pops and clicks when i remove the cable and plug the guitar into the input jack aswell pretty sure its the tubes What is really strange is when i tested the amp in the store some weeks before they shiped it to me (i bought it on their webshop) it didnt pop and click so it might have been the shipping hmm
  8. Not gonna order something from USA again the new added custom and taxes and shipping prices is ridiculous so i wonder if this tubes will work https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Electro-Harmonix-EL84-Valves-Tubes-PLATINUM-MATCHED-Pair-NEW-Burned-In-EH/322542352575?epid=1529268789&hash=item4b1905b8bf:g:OmwAAOSwK6RZM~33 Or those http://www.banzaimusic.com/EL84-EH-Platinum-Matched.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIre6In__V5wIVFqWaCh2RhAUhEAQYBCABEgIdwvD_BwE
  9. Thanks but can those specified EH series be swapped without any biasing some new amps dont need any biasing when swapping tubes if you use the same as it was shipped with?
  10. How do i disable cab modeling on my DT when i use Line6 Link? I also thinking of buying an old Pod HD 500 so i can use it as a dream rig I have an M-audio midiinterface
  11. My clicks and pops when i'm not playing got it hooked up to helix via Line6 link but also when i just plug the guitar into the input jack on the amp Just got it second hand so i dont know if the tubes ever was changed
  12. I agree with O.P no problems updating whatsoever. It took maybe 10 min to update another few min for the 7&8 reset rebuild of new presets and restore of the backup As i had all my backups done long before "spring ended" so it was just the looong wait for the 2.80 release.
  13. Oh no stay on 7 as long as you can (or as long as Line6 supports it) it is the crappy Win 10 that cause all Win problems mostly due to problem installing the new driver that is needed for the hotkeys. I dont have any issues on my win 7 machines i use a hub aswell So no reason to go to another machine for updates. Another thing is they might have zillions of protection software that wont let Line6 install it.
  14. A.f.a.i.k it only happend on some few units if everyone had that problem imagine all 1000,s of post we would have about that problem and mostly on LT i have floor. Same goes for that "new" problem on 2.81 where a few units have problem with snapshots i didnt have that either.
