Playing my 1975 Amperex A frame 6DJ8. In comparison to my Sylvania 12AX7A they are more detailed, etched, with stronger bass and punch in treble, but the Sylvania is more musical and sweet, but with less detail. Both tubes are very enjoyable and the jury is still out what I prefer.
What is not enjoyable is that the wires on my spider web adapter break all the time when I move the adapter. They break at the soldering points at the Vector adapter.
What kind of wire is the thickest and most flexible that can be used with the Vector adapter (fitting through the little holes on the tabs) without soldering and just using the pressure of the tabs? Presently I use solid 22 gauge wire. Would stranded wire be better?
On my 6DJA adapter I use a breadboard with 30 gauge wirewrap solid wire without soldering. This seems to work better, but it seems to me that the wire is too thin to resist breakage (which already happened).
