It should be obvious that the pre section tubes are the place to start with when experimenting with rolling. That is because the phono section will only perform as good as the pre section will allow it to. Along with the fact the pre section will affect any & all other sources (CDp, Tuner, etc) run through the pre-amp.
Having matched tubes is a good if not always necessary idea. When dealing with low level signals, it becomes more important. Try to use matched tubes in pre & phono amp applications. You can sometimes get away with not having matched tubes in power amp applications if they are fairly close to begin with.
.....just an "ON" switch, Please!
