 Could be worse -- I have the original prototype DUM cables. That had a very hard plastic sheath around the cable which I spent something like an hour carefully removing -- twice!  I've been tweaking my system (I rolled a tube into my Studio Six via an adaptor that I'd been using on the Vali 2) and now I'm getting crazy amounts of detail out of some tracks. With the Ether Flow listening to Goodbye Pork Pie Hat I can now clearly hear the spittle vibrating inside one of the...

These are all compatible with the 6SN7 and there are adaptors for all these on eBay. Since I wanted...
