I hope someone can help me. I bought a Bravo V2 amp, and while the stock tube is ok for listening to the TV with a wireless transmitter/receiver, it doesn't cut it when listening to music. I'm using a new set of AKG K240s. I would like something with better and clearer bass as the stock tube is very muddy. I've read the entire Bravo thread, but I somehow get lost as to which tube does what. I've also searched the site, and the web, with little "real world" recommendations. I'd like to get 3 or 4 tubes to play with without spending a fortune. In the 30.00 range, or am I kidding myself?
Maybe some info on how to verify which tube in a certain brand produces the sound. It seems that there are multiple, say RCA Clear Tops on Ebay. It looks like some of them are the good ones, some are not. How can I tell which is which by looking at the picture? Or what is the best question to ask the seller to find the information needed to determine which tube he is selling?
Also, is there a site I can search on to see what the numbers from different brand/model tube testers mean? That way I could look at the numbers and at least make an intelligent decision.
Thank you for any help you can offer. This is really new to me and these questions are the only way I can learn. Jim.
