Tube Selection
Just tossing in as possibilities the old JAN GE 5751s. I had a pair of these that were very interesting, including excellent, very even sound density and truly great LF. The only tubes in my system now are the old, "New York" 6922s in my phono stage, and they must be fading. I HATE shopping for tubes, knowing no matter what sellers claim about them, they are what they are when I use them! Fortunately for me, Mark has an Amplitrex, and he knows how to use it!

Valvo mesh 0A2

Other changes to come:

- looking for Amperex 0A2 with mesh plates
- will rewire MM input in silver with silver WBT RCA's - it now welcomes my top cart, Decca London Reference with silver AQ Leopard phonocable (will post on that in a separate thread)
- considering another red tip 12AX7 for the output but given the change was not big at the input it's more of an itch...a costly one at $275

I've finally got some mesh plate 0A2 made by Valvo. Well, I didn't notice any difference compared to my previous Sylvania's so far. Perhaps...PERHAPS..a tiny bit more dynamical contrast but my aural memory too short to eventually spot such tiny changes. Also while A/B listening the Valvos were not warmed up. 



Cheers,
