What tubes have you HD800 owners been loving? Powerful bass, beautiful clear and warm mids and smooth and detailed highs with a deep soundstage and good imaging sounds about right...

The cheaper the better is a good motto here.

:beerchug:

I hope to fall in after you...

Hoo-ray for Beer French bubbly! :normal_smile : I finally brought home a pair of speakers - Pre-Owned KEF Corda 9's. Can't wait to leash them up to both the vintage Sansui G-22000 and Shindo Lab monos. Speaking of which, I currently have Raytheon's for both 6BM8 & 6AU4 slots. Would any of you glass gurus know what's the premium tubes for those positions? Thanks.

Thanks. I'm out to prove once and for all that Astrud Gilberto's vocals really can float through mid-air, without meditation or... ahem, unusual substances. :rolleyes:

perfect for tubes. I tried the Kef R500 with WA2 as pre amp but i wasn't that gone on the sound. Do you know if the sensitivity has to be high for the pre-amp function? Maybe the fact that i was using a Rotel integrated amp as apposed to a power amp.

I think it's very easy to dismiss her feather light, fresh and breathy vocals as merely simple singing and unsophisticated. Until you hear said vocals on a transparent, immediate and musical tube amp with detail and depth. And your joy quickly turns to disappointment when you learn many of her tracks only average some 3 minutes on a good night. :tongue_smile: And you wildly search for more of her material.

 

Though, my blocks appreciate highly sensitive speakers, they're pumping 40wpc so that helps a bit. No issues with the HE-6 pairing... (7.5 wpc @ 50 Ohms)

My 300B mono blocks use TV damper diodes like the 6AU4 and I find Tung-Sol the best. All my personal amps

use TV damper diodes I only use 5U4 types in amps I sell because everybody wants them.

Damper diodes are far superior as rectifiers then the 5U4 types.

Don't know about the 6BM8 though
