Darkvoice 336 + 336i Tuberolling [ tubes ] - Page 101

post #1501 of 1506

I don't quite remember anymore. Originally, with the Chinese tubes that the amp arrived with, it took at least several hours if not one or two days for the hum to disappear.

I had a noisy selectron (6sn7) that calmed down after I left it on overnight, about 12 hours.

Who's using socket savers on their Darkvoice 336 and how do you like them? Please share which socket you're using them on (front only, or back and front both), and where you bought them from. I'd like to be able to roll tubes often without having to worry about loosening up or wearing out the built-in sockets!

I am a newbie, just got my darkvoice from Massdrop. The manual is in chinese of course and my wife does not want to translate for me. I was thinking of the rca grey glass 6sn7gt. From the Forums this seems to be the tube to get. That 6sn7gt seems to be only for the front tube. Do I have to change or recommended to change out the back tube if I change out the front tube?

 

Also any recommendations where to get tubes? 

 

I am using mainly a HD600. I use on occasion the HD650 and I do have an AKG 701 but almost never use it. So the target tubes are for the HD600 and somewhat the HD650.

Hi, the front tube is the 6SN7, yes, the larger tube behind it is the 6AS7G (AKA the power tube). You can change either one without the need to change the other. But do not put the smaller 6SN7 in the rear position that the power tube would normally go. Or Vice Versa. That would be bad. The stock tubes that came with the amp are usually considered to be pretty poor sounding. You can find better ones cheapest on that auction site. Just watch the sellers feedback and cross your fingers when buying. Feel free to ask questions here.
