Nice tank....what size? Is that fiji live rock?

I decided to get a slightly bigger tank...so my 5gallon eclipse is going to be a small sick fish tank. The one im getting is called a Auqapod, its 12 gallons. Its got the lights needed though and everything is connected. Even has a small sump type filter.

the live rock is a mix, had it going for about 3 years.
that was in a 20, not my tank is a 10, about 20 kinds of coral and the clam, 150 watts MH, and the other tank is a 65 gal with 150 gal sump.

Right now i just have a percula clown and a chalk bass. I just got a flaming scallop to thats really neat. My tank been going for a really long time 5+ years in a 5gallon tank. I keep trying to get pics of my coral banded, but he just sits in side the rock till evening light comes on then he is out...but if i flash him, i never get a good solid pic of him.

Well, back on topic....just got some tubes from a fellow head-fier (thanks John) and havent had a chance to really play with them. Right now im using a TFK 6080 and a Valvo 6080. Both look pretty much brand new to. They both have black plates in the middle and chrome topped.

Just picked up some MS1's in a trade to and have been playing with these and the new tubes. I love the sound....very nice so far. More to come soon.

Sure thing, here are all my tubes...well, not counting the stock tubes.

First pic is the back tubes, from left to right....GE 6080 (6AS7G), Valvo 6080, RCA 6AS7G Coke bottle.

Second pic is my front tubes, minus stock. The left side is a Kenrad black glass and the right is a GE 6SN7GTB.

The 3rd pic is what i have in my DV right now. Its that TFK 6080. I cant really make out the writing atm since its on the back side and its pretty dam hot atm. So i cant take it out for a bit. The front is a RCA 6SN7GTB with black plates and green writing on the base.

Np mate...i will have some thoughts posted up soon. I still playing with my MS1's and testing them out. On my woody 580s, i really like the 6SN7GTB (RCA green writing) and the RCA 6AS7G (Coke bottle) combo. This gives the 580s a really nice tighter bass tone. If i swap the coke bottle RCA with the GE6080, there is much more detail, but the bass tone is alot flatter compared. I have tested the TFK 6080 and my RCA (green writing) with my MS1s last night. I have about maybe 4-5 hours through it so far. I really like the combo with jazz or classical. For rock, the bass sounds too flabby. The cymbals and guitar sounds soo rich and clear. Sometimes its nice to have headphones that have NO soundstage and another with a bigger soundstage. It really lets you fine tune what can to use for what type of music. I LOVE these MS1's for jazz or classical. I havent found the right tube combo for rock yet. To me right now, its just really nice cymbal and guitar reproduction, but its bass is alittle.........eh.

When you say "there is much more detail, but the bass tone is alot flatter" what do you mean? I understand more detail, but what happens to the bass?

Its just not as present as the other. The bass tone doesnt carry very long which gives a slightly different sound. Kinda like if you were to turn down 55k-110k in your EQ a few notches each.

I just put the Valvo 6080 in my DV. Its pretty similar to my GE6080 in terms of bass. The highs and mids are very detailed, but i find that the back really doesnt make a HUGE difference out of all of them.

Going to test out that Kenrad black glass soon, i got it from another member (thanks Boom). Its got a noticeable hum, but its just to sample the sound.

Also still using my MS1's atm....cant seem to get these off my head =)

I have been listening to the headphone so long and so loud in the past three days that I can't tell any difference when I tube roll my amp. My ears are numb.

I know what you mean. My ear is starting to feel the pain of the bowls. However, they sound soo good compared to the comfy ones.
