    Best IEM tips?

    Wow,. literally double the price of most tips out there. Is this the new pricing for them? I remember that they were easy to find, and about $15-20 for 4 pairs

    For 6AS7G tube rollers here .....

    Nope, it was untested and I took a chance... It's running fine now, after it was popping, I recleaned the pins, and tested it with cheap throwaway headphones - still a bit worried. I've had many 6080s pass through my hands, and I've never seen the flashing flake like that

    For 6AS7G tube rollers here .....

    I just bought this tung sol 6080 and the getter is flaky? Also popped a few times on start up, but I cleaned the pins and it seems to be okay now, but is it signs of a failing tube? First pop scared the life out of me - I thought I damaged my HD600s

    The Entry Level Stax Thread

    The T1/006 and the new 700t are basically the same with slight modernization - consensus is to go aftermarket or do a constant current source mod to replace the loading resistors to get more power
