I've had only one 5998 pop on me at startup. No headphones were harmed, I never used the tube since. Actually, I don't use any of my 5998 tubes as I don't really like the sound.

Been thinking about other tubes  that could be used and looked at my stash, I have lots of double digit triodes which I think hold great promise which I have yet to do anything with. 19, 26, 26, 30, 37, 45,50, 56 and 76s. Must be some good potential with these.

Half of your list are very well known quantities and some of the finest sounding tubes to ever exist.

your amp is almost finished it will be finished in the morning.

I used Sprague Vitamin Q coupling capacitors I feel these are the best sounding

coupling capacitors.  I bought them for someone else but they bought there own

Duelund capacitors. So I used them in your amp I only use paper in oil capacitors

and these are the best.

As a guy who has blown a lot of money on "gourmet" tubes, I find this really exciting. 

The new line of self biasing circuits seem to be looking only for a quick fix readily available tube that fits the bill and eventually ends up being frustrating.

Eric behave, all this Skype talk sounds so inviting.................

Take it from one of the very early Skype users when it was still under testing.

Eat cookies or admiring tubes?

 

Don't know which is worst............

 

Currently I am in touch with friends from three contents so there's still room to improve.
