REVIEW: Decware Select Zen CSP2 Tube Headphone Amp - Page 44

post #646 of 653

just bit the gold lion genelex ecc88/6922 tube replaced lorenz pcc88, combined with lorenz gz32 results in best combination ever for hd800, massive soundstage, great 3D imagine, clear layer and instrument separation, balancing the tube smoothness and resolution, very good treble extension without any hint of sib, very low noise floor can crank volume knob to 75% before getting small noise

Sorry I don't understand... Did you replace the gold lion with the PCC88 - which is how I first read you - or t'other way around? TIA

I had better luck the other way around using 2 Golden Lions in L/R and the 6N1P in the front.

i wish to announce that this type of 5AW4 rectifier tube ( with the "A" pipings on the plate)

has a v high tendency to give holographic sound with the other tubes u have.

Buy one when u get a chance on ebay...whilst it is still reasonably cheap.

 

(brands could be GE /CBS/ HYTRON/ Raytheon...probably same manufacturer?

mine is branded "SHELDON"....as long as u see the A pipes? :P )
