Nope...It is a terrific amp for my HD800/HD650's as well. That is what I used when I first listened to it over a year ago. Then I heard it with a pair of KEF 207/2 Reference speakers..Best sound from a system I had ever heard.

Suggestions are welcome. There are too many of them and I have never used 6SN7's before.

post #5156 of 11797

OK, in honor of Clayton and his generous contribution toward the 5000th post, here is the SLI-80 sporting a pair of USAF-596's!

 

 

 

Notice the 2359Glenn adapters!

post #5157 of 11797

Nice amp Eric

 

Now you need a quad of GEC KT88

and pair of Tung-Sol 6SN7s or Tung-sol or National Union 6F8G round plate

post #5158 of 11797

Hmmmm...$350-$500 per tube on eBay for the GEC KT88's....I am not sure if I want to go there yet. There seem to be many varieties of Tung Sols and the prices are all over the place. I am a complete n00b with 6SN7's....

post #5159 of 11797

I like to replace the 6SN7 with 6F8Gs

But if you want to stay with 6SN7s best ask Stavros he is the expert on 6SN7s

Skip the KT88s for awhile I didn't know they were that expensive now.

post #5160 of 11797

I think I am going to spend some time with what I have and do some research. These are supposed to be a step up from stock. I am pleased the 596's are working fine. I have always enjoyed them. I appreciate the suggestions very much. It appears the 6SN7/6F8G category is a huge sub genre to learn!
