KT120 got installed today. There is definitely a little more top and bottom end, mids did not change. They are HUGE tubes, if you put these in your amp and you are using it in the middle of a rack or shelf, be sure you will still have enough clearance on top. They add another inch or so to the height of a 6550.

Eric, my SLI-80 setup is as follow:
Speakers: 2 Nola Boxers with Straightwire Expresso wires.
Analog: Denon DL-62 TT with AES PH1-DJH phono pre
Digital: Cary Xciter DAC and Oppo BDP-83
I love the setup David. The Denon table is a long time favorite of mine. I also am a fan of the AKM Dac chips and I have enjoyed the Cary when I have had a chance to listen to it. I have read a lot about the Nola's but have never heard them. I'll bet they are a sweet pairing with the Cary gear.
What cartridge are you running with the Denon?
Nice....I have been a Dynavector fan myself. Everything I have read about the Benz and Clearaudio look really good.
I use the SLI-80 Sig with the Rega R7 speakers ( http://www.stereotimes.com/speak022306.shtml , transmission line, 3-way, 89 dB ). Really like it a lot.
My favorite headphone with the SLI-80 is the LCD-2 rev.1
I was listening to the 7's at HiFi Heaven. Very nice sound. It was an all Rega system. I have never heard the Audeze's on the SLI-80, but I loved the HD800's on it.
