Tubes can vary in price wildly , but $20 -40 for decent ones not crazy. And some can cost $100 range.
And I don't even know how I like the stock tube I haven't even got my unit yet and probably won't have it for couple weeks yet not sure. I'm just going by the 3400 posts and 210 pages I've read in this thread so far is how I'm judging what to get. The stock tube is bright , not as open from what I've read in the thread almost every single person has replaced it. I mean a Orange globe isn't that much really. And since you can use driver grade tubes with no issue it opens things up a little price wise too I'd imagine.
The first post in this thread really does have just about everything. I have weeks probably till my unit comes so I just thought I'd read through the entire thread and take the journey they did just a year later. It's been a fun read so far.
