Speaking of Mullards, I'm going to put in a quad of NOS Mullard EL-34s in my Leben CS600. Right now, I'm using Genalex Gold Lion KT-77 reissues, which are excellent tubes, with a bit more frequency extension and balance than the EL-34s, but the Mullards will not only add that famous midrange magic, but also that hallucinatory out-of-the-head imaging. Should be aural LSD with the HD800.
