The tweeter amp sounded best with either 5751 Sylvania triple blacks or very early MC1 Mullard 12ax7. I was also rolling power cables too and the tweeter amp liked the Douglas Bravo 15 silver based cable.
The woofer amp sounded best with either Mullard M10's or Siemens ECC83 and a Furutech 18P power cable.
The phono pre sounded best with 5751 Sylvania triple mica black plaes.
The turn table liked the Douglas Alpha 11 or Bravo 15. The Alpha seemed to add some weight to the music where the Bravo 15 brought out more detail with a lighter more delicate touch.
You are having WAY too much fun Eric!! Glad to see you trying the different cables in different places. Synergy!!! It can make a huge difference!
