Rubenpp- if you'd like to PM me, I'm curious to hear your evaluation of the BHSE.   It would be good to hear your perspective on this.  Thanks!

Got my official shipping notification the other day. Should have my Electra up and running by early next week, I think.

 

Thinking about picking up some Psvanes to replace the stock EL34s.

MF, the changes the Psvane EL34PH brought to my system is easily the most significant improvement I've ever heard. The sense of realism I'm hearing is astounding. I cannot comment on how they would pair with the Electra, but I would hope the experience would be similar. I wish I had some NOS EL34's to compare them to (especially the Philips metal base). I have no doubt these would easily compete.

Not the saem type of tubes but the same type of experience with Psvane. I replaced a pair of Telefunken smooth plates 12AX7 which IMO were very detailed but lacked body with a pair of Psvane in the line stage section of my McIntosh C2300 pre-amp. Oh what a nice change. The Psvane provide the same level of detail and upper extension but with better bass and a lot warmer and realistic midrange. For the price the Psvane are a bargain.

Someone else mentioned the same thing in one of the GF blogs about the Telefunken's (unless that was you).

Psvane tube sound great, but there are not very reliable... I have one pair of 2A3 TII, and after 10 hours, it made some noise...

It's seems to be a quality probleme with this tubes.

I hope for you it will continue like that bigsmile_face.gif

I buy a pair of Emission Lab, and they run without problem ! Sound is a bit better than the Psvane...

Too funny, what a load of crap. I was just thinking about the EML when you mentioned about the Psvane. Go to the Woo Audio Owners Unite forum and read up on all the EML reliability issues there. I concur the EML do sound good.

Impressions please ?

I was talking about 12AX7 Psvane only. I do have EML 300B Mesh in my WA5-LE and totally love them with no issues at all for the last  almost 3 years.

post #315 of 419

Anyone have an Electra in use?  Still waiting to receive word when my unit will be shipping.  I have a set of Psvane EL34PH waiting.
