Decided to play around with my tubes again, see if maybe time had fixed my GE ECC85/6AQ8 that I loved so much (it sounded absolutely amazing paired with my DT990s), got a big nope on that, so then I felt like I wanted to try something new so I ordered an ECC189 made in France as recommended earlier in the thread, and also bought another Holland 6AQ8 in the hopes that it'll work; third times the charm, right?
I really wonder what the hell it is that makes 6AQ8's not friendly to the T1, it certainly isn't the heater as the T1 is rated up to 3A...

And its running much hotter!
I've never had any issues with rolling my tubes, what exactly is the sound that you're hearing? Are you sure it's microphonics?
As far as the heat, some tubes run hotter than others, it's a fairly normal thing as far as I've heard.
