Rolling......

Post by HRDROKN » Sat Jul 09, 2011 1:55 pm

Tubes is sick! I haven't even received my preamp and already have a small stash of tubes coming! I feel like I got a new version of OCCD ... OTCD?

Just be careful who you trust for swapping to other "similar" tubes with different numbers! Safest bet is to roll different brand tubes with same number designation. - Enjoy! You are entering a whole 'nother realm in audio! :D

Yes tubes can become a sickness. I think I have enough tubes for my Sunfire pre to last me till I hit 170.

:lol:

OK... I had to stop at $450... ish. I thingk I got about 70% of the recommended tubes. I will have to see how these all work out... I still want to get some Telefunk and/or Valvo for the 12AX7, but settled with the Sovtek LPS for my baseline. Listen to me talk like a tube noob! :lol:

As far as 12AX7's go my favorite is GE 5751 with black plates triple mica. I use them in the moving magnet phono stage of my Sunfire Classic Tube preamp.
