post #46 of 158

Got myself Shuguang Treasure KT88-Z matched four tubes to change Shuguang Treasure 6CA7-Z in my WooAudio WES... the tubes are new, so it's too soon to make any judgments on how they sound, but even now I have a little WOW-effect on the ammount of "Air" that I could hear with them, so probably KT88 will become my main power tubes in WES and 6CA7 would be a spare in case something happens with KT88 wink.gif

So here are a few pics (sorry for lame photo quality... Ipad 3 frown.gif ), the KT88 tubes really are big, now the back row of 6SU7 tubes seems veeery small in comparison biggrin.gif :

I like them, I could had a moneyback in a week period (today was the last day of that week), but decided to keep them... I mostly compared them with Atlas Mavros unbalanced interconnects which my friend gave me to listen for some time. I think Mavros and 7N-D5000 is in one class of sound quality, but they are quite different: Mavros is more "warm" and "soft" sounding, 7N-D5000 is more analytical and neutral, they are more "audiophile" than Mavros... also 7N-D5000 is far more "dynamic" than Mavros... it's all only IMHO of course. Also compared 7N-D5000 with my main interconnect cables (before I bought 7N-D5000) - XLR Analysis-Plus Solo Crystal Oval... they are just different class, 7N-D5000 is better in everything (when I compared XLR Analysis-Plus Solo Crystal Oval with Atlas Mavros to my ears seemed that Mavros had a little less "dynamic" than Analysis-Plus, in everything else Mavros is better)

Well, these are my latest purchases.

How much did the MCA cup cost? Does he mod it for you or you can just buy the cups and install it yourself.
