I have also listened to 'Air' today, 'La Femme d'argent' with a fresh espresso!
..and also PJ Harvey's 'On Battleship Hill'
Um um uuuuuuuhm... The track is "There's Always Something Better." It gets decent rotation among my many other songs, but as often happens I forget to pick up more tracks during the day-to-day. You know. Usually, I try to get back to completing my Radiohead or Arcade Fire collection, but sometimes weird moods will strike me and I'll love something I heard on shuffle and buy more stuff of that genre or artist. I also love the record label samplers, and iTunes free downloads. Who did "La Femme D'argent?"

I haven't needed more volume either, usually, but I know exactly what you're thinking of regarding tube warmth. Unfortunately (for your wallet), I probably only have things to say that'll whet your appetite
I read up on the Bravo and Indeed variants, then a comment on the Bravo thread shot me over to researching a "super simple 6DJ8 amp,"
which I think
is related to a modification of one of the first hi-fi amps.
I thought, "maybe these tubes can add more bass bottom-end," but now that I got one of those amps (made for me by Zigis), I realized more musical, engaging mids, redefining what I think people might mean when they say "tube warmth." And, I am addicted. I've got an Amperex (from Holland), a Sylvania JAN (uh, America I think?), and now I have 4 Voskhod Reflektors on the way from Russia.Edited by Evshrug - 2/27/13 at 8:34pm
