Hey again everyone,
I have installed the new tubes, and they sound great, with one caveat.
I have the volume knob at the maximum volume, and to me, it is very, very quiet. (I usually do not listen to music too loud).
When purchasing the tubes, I specified that I wanted a matched pair, but did not specify "high gain" tubes.
Should I buy another pair of tubes and specify "high gain"?
The system is very, very quiet. Too the point where I must have the volume knob at the maximum if I want to hear music, regardless of the volume.
My phono stage is a bellari vp130, and worked perfectly fine with another amplifier, voulmes were good.
