i like mine for sure, its all very subjective though, its always best to listening before you buy if you can, or if you order online, make sure you can return it if you don't like it

Good point... I guess I could get my LD I+ first and try that with a V90 in the store (I know where I can actually buy that) :)

I hope you get it today!

 

I splurged and bought a 5751 Sylvania triple mica black plate tube from a fellow head-fier the other day....be here some time early next week, I suppose.

Yeah the UPS,USPS came already...empty handed!

Maybe you can link me to seller that you purchased 5751 tubes from, so I can purchase one, being mine is coming with a 12AX7, this way I can try them both...please. Thank you.

I got mine here at the b/s/t/ forums

 

http://www.head-fi.org/t/674369/some-tubes-for-sale

 

I believe that I was told by seller that it was a Brent Jessee tube....so I suppose you could get one from his website.

 

Here is the link to his homepage

 

http://www.audiotubes.com/

 

I am going to guess that the tube your MAD EAR comes with is going to sound very good!

Thank you very much for the link! I'm sure it is going to sound good also (according to Lloyd), but from what I've read they have two totally different signatures, so I'd like to hear them both and see what I prefer. Thanks again!

BTW, have you ever heard the 12AX7? Sorry if I asked you this already.

No...I have not heard the 12AX7, mine has a Sovtek 5751 tube in it.

I just picked up a pair of MS1i's after having sold my SR225i's a few years ago.  As much as I typically prefer a more-lush tone to my headphones I really have missed the Grado signature for a while.

 

I'm listening to Jose Gonzalez - Veneer through my Bifrost/Asgard and I'm really loving it.

So you are trying an American Sylvania, instead of the Russian Sovtek, because the Slvania is supposed to be a much better tube?

I believe I have read a few posts that do say the American 5751's blow the Russian 5751's away. This is only what I have read, not from any experience, what so ever.

Yes, according to some the Sylvania 5751 triple mica black plate is one of the tubes that really shine with the MAD EAR +HD......we shall see.

 

Even though I want to try this tube, I am in no way disappointed with the sound I currently am hearing. I actually love the sound with the Sovtek tube.

 

I guess that I am more curious than anything.

Good luck with the tube, hope you like it also. I'm going to order one myself, thanks again for the info. And I should most definitely be getting the Ear+ today, (hopefully).

I asked in the RS1 thread but it seems to be pretty dead there so I'll try here.

Does anyone know what year Grado started putting serial numbers on the RS1?
