Alright alright...back on topic. 

post #4577 of 8735

Got a new set of "special" orange globes due in the mail today!! 

post #4578 of 8735

Got the Amperex Orange Globes in about an hour ago. They are the best that I have ever owned hands down. Beautiful mids...the bass is insane, deeper, more impact and wonderfully textured. I actually giggled like a girl when the bassline first hit. And I'm not ashamed either. biggrin.gif

 

Here is the link if anyone is interested. Still smiling listening to these. This is the reason I bought a tube amp...moments like this:

Okay, I've got another 1/2 hour on these tubes and I must just say...wow. They run $70 I think from mercedesman, but I can't imagine what a $200 set would sound like.

Bob,

Those are awful tubes.

Might last a week.

You really should sell them.   biggrin.gif

Maybe try using the force ........  "These are not the tubes you're looking for ...... "

Quite often Amperex should be spelt Philips, anyway.

Sorry, it's "Phillip" not "Philips"...oh...you meant the tube!?!very_evil_smiley.gif

I'm confident I'll be happy.

 

After further listening, I'm going to say I prefer the HE-500 with a lot of the 80-90's rock I listen to as well.  The LCD-2 is a bit too dark for that genre with the Lyr.  Nice to see everyone scoring some nice tubes, I bought the last set of the amperex usn cep with the large O getters from mercedesman as well and just arrived today....will have to give them a whirl and compare to my amperex white PQ's e188cc.....another favorite of mine.

I'd be interested in that comparison.

So what's the best way to store tubes that are not in use? Is there a nice compartmentalized box that fits them well or something like that?
