Very nice amp.

If you have enough matched pairs I don't think you need the tube package.

Anyone want to sell me a backup pair of Ken-Rad VT231s with the black base/smoked glass? I love these tubes and I'm having a hard time finding a set of spares.

I may have some I could sell...send me a PM please so I remember to check.

Thank you  for your kind reply.I don't have any tube. If S7 with the stock tube is good enough, I don't want to roll the tube soon. I think listening for some days  is better for me. But If the S7 with the stock tube sounds not gppd , I think I need  the tube package. Pls give me some advice. Thanks so much.

You are most welcome.

 

The amp comes with no tubes or the basic tube pack which are  7 Tung-Sol re-issues.

Now I don't like them but if I was starting from scratch I would get the basic pack for two reasons.

 

A.The tubes are tested and are safe to use.

B. You have to start from a base line.

 

You can then read and learn about 6SN7's and slowly experiment with different pairs and see how they affect your system.

So I have to order the tube package. Thank you so much for your advice.

Check with Craig first to be sure.

 

Be careful you don't get the tube addiction.

If you are completely new to tubes I agree starting with the standard re-issue TungSols is the way to go.  They will be reliable and quiet and you have to start somewhere to establish your preferences.  Then if you are curious about old stock tubes you can pick up some reasonable Sylvania or RCA GTB tubes and you will already have something to compare them to in order to tell the difference.

^I agree, also good to use to burn your amp in and get used to the signature.

 

After getting to know the Super 7, you can search Super 7 threads and owners to see what they are running and ask them.

 

Will depend upon what you are looking to change which is dependent upon the phones you have, the recordings that you listen to, the source...oh just start with the stock tubes.

 

Or the Electro-Harmonix here.

Yes. Not worth the asking price imo. $140 for a pair is the avg price afloat on ebay.
