And thank you for the two violet OC3 regulator tubes. They glow fantastically in my Decware Mini Torii.

And of course, thanks for the two 2399 tubes. They look very unique.

Yes it is.
It is a wonderful amp and very pretty to look at.

I use it with speakers only.

Auto spelling doesn't help either!

 

Thanks David, this is to whet Ultra's appetite

Glenn, I really liked how they sounded.  I haven't spent enough time with them yet, but I was very pleased.

I remember you getting some HE-500's to plug into the speaker taps at last year's meet which is the only reason I recognized that amp :P

Nice showing off, I got some brown cup base GECs :beerchug:. I am keeping mine, but one pair was dead already two years ago after heavy use and shipped a few times. I got them when they were $120 a pair.

Seamaster nothing to show off really.

 

These are just 6AS7G and 6080 tubes, nothing special.

 

It's Clayton's fault, he started it showing off his nice chocolates..............

Do these expensive tubes really sound that much better?  Stavros tube collection is unbelievable he only shows a few every now and then.

post #4798 of 10818

I can believe that for some people, they can sound better. I am not sure my heavy metal abused ears could appreciate all the nuances as they are described. :rolleyes:

post #4799 of 10818
Every 6sn7 I have listened to sounded uniquely different. Better is a matter of opinion and perspective but regardless there were always readily identifiable differences. I'm always surprised by how much so in fact.

Glenn,

 

For me the biggest limitation is the recordings and wanted to have some funds left over to support the arts. Yesterday I threw out a recording of Mahler Symphony No. 2 not because of the performance but the engineering of the CD was so bad. It was on 2 disks and the first disk was just 20 minutes long and the second disk was chopped up into so many parts even a track break in a middle of a song. Just horrible! It was just a cheap used CD so I did not lose out much. I thought about having a 300B based amp but recent health issues is taking up the funds. The key thing I can say is just to have fun and enjoy the company and happy in spite of the limitation that life sometimes throws in your path.  I think that the many posts here and the talk about food are showing off the fun we are having.
