Rolling......

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?

Re: Rolling......

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

Re: Rolling......

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:

Re: Rolling......

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.
