DNA Stratus 2A3 amplifier - first impressions - Page 210

post #3136 of 3142
Thread Starter 

I waited several weeks for them, but I like using the Duende dampers very much on my WE275s. They add a firmness and increase the sense of presence, of coherent realism, without any deleterious spectral effects that I have detected.

 

Tapping the case of my Stratus causes a zing with most 2A3 tubes, but the dampers dull this effect. Firmly.

 

They must be engaged carefully, and they fit on the very top tightly - yup, firmly. :)

 

Herbie's are good, too, and there are others that I haven't tried. Of course, YMMV.

Who is Herbie?

When people talk about 275 tube in this thread, are they talking about the original WE275A or the replica made by PSVANE?

Replica.  At least I can't recall anyone with originals.

The WE275A is a 5V tube that won't work with the Stratus.

Thanks, I got confused because AFAIK 275A has a different spec than  2A3. But last time I heard, QC of PSVANE tubes are bad, but is it no longer the case?
