Thank you figaro69. I already have some tubes coming with it :D : 1x amperex 6dj8, 2x amperex EL84 (heard they pair well with HD800) , 2 x 6p15p-er, RCA 5y3GT & 6922 "pinched waist" .
This will be my first tube amp ever :D .
Can't wait for your impressions with LCD-X. Tried the T1 once but I wasn't so impressed by them. They are too bright for me.
How do you like your taboo compared to Burson Soloist and the others in your collection?
Looks like you are bringing in the big bad boys for battle. By the way, I use the Philips rectifier that is sold at Upscale Audio...I have the RCA5yGT and the Philips beats it by a mile (based on my taste), even though the RCA is fine (i.e., it would be the best if the Philips did not exist!). The RCA is warmer and punchier...the Philips is airy and opens the soundstage, which works wonders for Classical Music, which I almost exclusively listen to). Both are great, but the thing is that I prefer airy with bigger soundstage. You are gonna have so much fun rolling tubes!!! By the way, my current tubes are the Philips rectifier, two EL84 Tungsram tubes (the best EL84s I've heard, again courtesy of Upscale Audio), and a GE5751 five star (black plates, 1957) driver tube. My god, the sounds this makes with the T1 are just unbelievable.
