ALO The Pan Am - The tube rolling thread - Page 9

post #121 of 123

I chimed in on this thread (I think?) earlier this year about the Mil-spec Raytheon 6AK5s and I just want to reiterate that they are an awesome tube! Honestly they give the Mullards and RTCs a run for their money. If anyone else wants to try 'em look for the JRP 6AK5 which denotes the military spec. Great tubes!

And I'm just dropping by to help with the reanimation. tongue.gif

Reporting in to say that PM-3 + Pan Am + Mullard CV4010 = sublime and intimate mids/vocals and wonderful warm tube-liciousness.

I was listening to my PM-3s with the Voskhods and the setup didn't seem quite as good as it was with my LCD-2s.
'Islandsmoen: Requiem - Lacrymosa' was sweeping, but the altos and sopranos seemed to lose distinction.

The PM-3s with my Precision 1 sounded more refined, with a larger soundstage and the sopranos and altos singing to me from an appropriate distance.

So I popped the Mullards in and for lack of a better word, Wow. Despite the more closed in soundstage, each voice became a real person singing right there with me - mids came to the forefront with so much intimacy and live-ness that it felt like people were singing in my head, in the forward left and right parts of my brain...

Next thing to do is see what happens with a different DAC.

Caveat: this was achieved at loud o'clock on the volume knob - which needed a much bigger turn on the knob with the Mullards than the Voskhods.
