I heard that some of you like to keep an updated record of tube generation variants and the image quality they produce so here are some pictures of my newest Gen.3 Pinnacle or Everest or whatever it is. Note that the moonlight is casting the shadows and not street lights.

Or, do I need a specific proprietary plug and computer software in order to adjust? I ask because I really do not want to send my unit back to ATN. I really appreciate all the information from you guys. Have a good weekend!

Hi,

Looks like you have a PVS14 without manual gain control with a MX10160 format tube. There is no proprietary plug, it is what it is. You can adjust the potmeters on the PSU but unless you know what your doing I would not mess with them.

Cheers,

Marc

Hello Marc,

Thanks for answering my question. I kind of figured it was not adjustable and I don't know much about the PSU so I will just leave it alone.

Thanks,
