how is that 5692 in the front? Can you compare it to a GE and RCA 6SN7GTB?

Right now im using a RCA 6AS7G in the back and a RCA 6SN7GTB in the front. Very nice musically, seperation is nice, bass is decent, a tad light in that area. However the cleaness of the sound is nice. If i switch the back to a GE 6080 (6AS7G straight glass) it seems to lose a small amount of detail and seperation, but gains some punchie'ness to lows and mids.

I also have a GE 6SN7GTB for the front, i can really tell a difference between this and my RCA.

Well I am no longer a member of the Darkvoice 336 club. I just sold mine to fellow a head-fier who will get to use it more than I have been. While I love the amp, I wasn't able to use it much now with having a new baby in the house.

Iceroid?

You know I'm going to send you a blown up framed photo of my new DV project amps once they're done simply as a torture, because I have a reputation to uphold.

Right now im trying my GE 6SN7GTB and my RCA 6AS7G and really like this combo. The detail is still nice, seems to have longer boom type feel, but hardly takes away from mids.

Im curious, i really want to try a Kenrad or Tung-sol in the front and sovtek in the back. Dam though, thats prob a good 100$ in tubes hehehe

Those are definitely my favorite tubes, you should give them a try. You could always sell those 2 tubes without a loss.

Wait 'til you boys see my "Darkvoice On Steroids" setup. It'll even scare the hell out of Schwarzenegger! Might be a little while before it's done, but you can't rush these things. Oh did I mention Fitz is the genious in charge?

I put these on the darkvoice topic since these were all the tubes I used in the darkvoice.When I went to 12.6 volts I bought several Mullard tubes and they sound fantastic. They cost me about 20 dollars apiece at 12.6 volts but cost a fortune at 6.3 volts. I have the tubes I like and will not go back to 6.3 volts so all my 6.3 are just sitting around taking space.Dont take me wrong the 6.3 tubes are still good, but just cant compete with the Mullard-marconi line of tubes for smoothness. Thats why there so expensive. If you can afford them there great at 6.3.

Ken Rad and others

Yes its v-231. Not nos. About 75% if I remember right. If you want a 1-2 punch, I would suggest the ken rad and the rca smoke glass also. The rca is smoothest you can get for a american made tube. The ken rad is not as smooth, but does have the bass for shure. But I am looking for someone to take the whole bunch,6sn7gt and 6as7g. How about 50 bucks buys the whole bunch. Tube rolling on the cheap. I probably spent well over 100 dollars on these when I was tube rolling.Before anyone makeing a offer let me get a picture up. If no one is intersested I will sell seperately.
