I've been off the Forum for quite awhile. Mostly depressed since selling the HE90's.
These are my personal tubes bought for use with the Headamp Aristaeus which I sold in 2008.
The Aristaeus will sound amazing with any tubes but it moves to a different level with nice European Tubes- the Siemens ECC83's are detailed with depth and sound stage while the Amperex ECL86's give nice detail. To me all Siemens or all Amperex was too much of a good thing. Mixing the tubes allowed me to bring out the best of each section.
The front ECC83 will make the most difference. In no specific order.
Amperex- More Detail
Mullard / Brimar- More Bass
Siemens- More Space
Valvo- More Space and Detail. Sort of a mix between the Amperex and Siemens
Telefunken- Dry they are famous for use in microphone pre-amps.
Sylvania 5751 Gold pins- a gift from God.
