Good to know but changing the heater is not for the faint of heart ? Doesn't the 12AU7 require higher on the heater and put out less gain than a 6DJ8?

Plus..I have one on the way...
But as I have said time and time again...okay.,.maybe once but what I have said is, these will sound different on different systems. They may have similar qualities (such as detailed, forward mids, etc.) but can also diverge depending on the system. Example, I found the amperex globe a bit bass heavy but still agreed it was detailed, forward mids, wide soundstage...etc.
So what I am saying is, not everything is guaranteed...I still want to try a 7308..but I just have to cool it for a while..I can get a bit OCD on tubes ..but you guys would not know what that's like.,..right ? LOL
Know what its like? Nope......not at all.....
tie pin 4 and 5 together on the 12au7, connect to pin 4 on aune.
connect pin 9 on 12au7 to pin 5 on aune.
An adapter would be nice
would something like this work>

I bought some socket savers to make these out of. Damn these things are expensive!
I will make 2 versions.
One will be a drop in and use the 6.3V heater circuit in the Aune.
3rd one will be a 6SN7 adapter that is a direct plug and play. This one will have a small circuit in it to bias the 6SN7 correctly. No external power needed.

Can't totally agree. Imaging presence, sure subjective, but you also have some parameters that should not be so subjective. High detail = high detail. You also have speaker and headphone values side by side which eliminates some synergy issues. The subjective terms always need some explaining imo. I guess if you find better tubes you just have to extend your scale ;)
There's a typo highlighted in red
