Question about amps for the Stax SR-009 - Page 49

post #721 of 724

The same tube will sound slightly differently in different amplifiers due to the circuit and other associated components, so no hard and fast rule. Thats the joy of tube rolling.

Generally I find my sound hierarchy as (highest) vintage British > vintage European/American > Communist Block > Chinese (lowest). This also equates to the build quality and materials used.  

However; some vendors who are having tubes produced in China now but control the design, materials and QA are producing some excellent examples, but generally the run of the mill stuff is quite poor.

I installed RCA cleartops in my 007t/ii and posted photos here:

I am using RCA clear tops in my SRM T1S with SR-009 and the sound is surreal!

 

Much better sounding than the Stax stock tubes that came with the T1S!

Thanks for confirming what I hear with these tubes. The tubes are pretty cheap and they do a great job but I never see anyone who has tried them on their Stax amp.
