will i be able to notice this difference if the difference to me between amped & unamped are subtle...granted i can hear the difference, but mostly between base with the stock tube...
if i upgrade the tube will i get a noticeable difference in sound i guess is what im asking
If you get a good replacement tube (6922, E88CC by Telefunken, Siemens, Philips, Mullard, et.al.) and you can't tell a difference from the stock tube, I wouldn't buy any more expensive audio gear, as you might never be able to discern the differences in great sounding music. My wife can't tell any difference between the TV and my surround sound system or a car radio and my SRH440s.
