Well, I really hope the Herbie's Audio Dampers work for you.  I never had any problems using them.

bsn,///have you looked at the Mullard  CV 2493's ? a really beautiful tube,.I had a few of them,when I used the Lyr.

 

 

Mike

I see the CV2493 at Upscale Audio.  They look very nice, but I might wait to see what I get in the way of Mullards for Christmas.  I know I am getting a matched pair of Mullards from my wife, but not sure exactly what is going to show up under the tree. They are coming from a reputable dealer, so whatever they are, they should be good. I will put the CV 2493 on my wish list.

I'm listening to the stock GE's.  Microphonics... nil  even when tapping on the tube.

 

Rolling to the Amprex again.

I have used several Herbie's products and been happy with them.  I have a set of the Tenderfoot feet under my Lyr right now.  Keep in mind, these items are tweaks, not massive earth shattering upgrades. That being said, they can cure problems like microphonic issues.

I've isolated the problem to a specific tube.

I just sent mercedesman a note.

Ah got it.  I like the voodoo that Mapleshade sells too.

Rather than listen to the backup pair of 62' Amprex USN-CEP's, I loaded the Bugle Boy's

I hated these tubes....  They sound amazing now.

 

I'm keeping those in until the other pair of the USN's are resolved.

Bsn, you should try the Telefunken PCC85 tubes. They are great with rock music. Fairly cheap, too.

I listen to a lot of jazz and rock.

 

I already have:

Matched Bugle Boys (favorite so far)

Amperex 1968 Orange Globes

A Matched 1960s mullards on the way for Christmas.

The Lyr 6N1P tubes (Russian)

The Lyr NOS GE 6BZ7 tubes (USA)

 

Thanks!

 

I have them both....clearly the cv2492 is a step up.  Matsu's are good for the value though and is a pretty big jump from the stock Lyr GE tubes but the cv2492 improves upon them in every way imo....and damn them mullards are smooth.....perfect for jazz and rock.

These are the best "cheaper"  tubes I have tried http://www.ebay.com/itm/SYLVANIA-JAN-6DJ8-ECC88-VACUUM-TUBE-1972-MATCHED-PAIR-GREEN-HORNETS-MIL-SPEC-/321017700594?pt=Vintage_Electronics_R2&hash=item4abe2560f2 .   They are good all-arounders with nice bass response and fantastic mid-range presence.

So many tubes...so little money. frown.gif

I did order the Matsu's and some socket savers last night. I will give the CV2492 a try, but will wait until after Christmas to see what the tube dealer sends to my wife for my Christmas gift. I know I am getting Mullards, just not sure what set, they may be the CVs.
