    Feliks Audio Elise Tube Rolling Guide 6SN7/6AS7G/6080/5998

    I use a Niles switch box with my amps, which I'd really like to upgrade one of these days. For now, it doesn't seem to leave much of a sonic mark. It sits way in the back of an Oppo105, on a lower shelf, so it's essentially invisible. As you can see, the Niles comes with a round knob. Plastic...

    Feliks Audio Elise Tube Rolling Guide 6SN7/6AS7G/6080/5998

    To say that I'm more than curious would be an understatement. Hopefully, in a month or so. Once it starts snowing and I'm forced into boring cars. Now I'm taking advantage, or trying to, of every day. We get a lot of snow, which comes with layers of highly corrosive salt courtesy of the city...

    Feliks Audio Elise Tube Rolling Guide 6SN7/6AS7G/6080/5998

    Is that the same reason why the newer 6BQ7A were joined by other designation on its box? I recall something similar about the 5AS4-A that later included a slash-delineated 5U4G to indicated a substitution option. As a side note, I scored my first 5AS4-A in the big $7.50 trio purchase. Kinda...

    need help choosing an Interconnect and a Y-link subwoofer cable for my setup please

    I'm familiar with the REL line and recommended a product in the OP's price range. The only conclusion I stated is that your recommendation costs more than twice as much as he's looking to spend. Agreed. When the OP can spend $4K and not $1500-$2000 the topic can be revisited.

    I don't see a point in continuing this discussion. You like the Brimar, great! Just as you have the right to your own opinion, since you own and use the rectifier, so do I. Good luck to you.

    I know you like this tube and I wasn't trying to offend you or anyone else. Yes, the mids are holographic, as I said. What deep bass? There is none, perhaps a hint that tapers down before the lowest octave. Certainly no power or weight to it. No real dynamics, no articulation, diffuse...

    As promised, to update the post, this method along with a Furutech power cord has eliminated the buzz from every tube I've tried so far. On a somewhat related note, received 6SN7 adapters today and have been listening since morning. To say the sound is disappointing is an understatement: slow...

    Hey Mordy, as you're in NYS, I would like to invite you over for an audio demo. Non-headphone. I promise you an experience you will not soon forget. Bring your favorite records/CDs/files. If you'd like that, please shoot me a PM. FWIW, I owned the same speakers as yours at one time. Bought them...

    As I'm listening to various 6SN7s in the WA6 - not that I have so many differently branded pairs - I'm having a difficult time understanding how so many seemingly intelligent people recommend this tube unequivocally for this particular amplifier - over, and over, and over, not unlike the highly...

    Same source, same electrical constraints. What? I'm out. Please feel free to help the OP.

    need help choosing an Interconnect and a Y-link subwoofer cable for my setup please

    This is in reference to two separate outputs from two separate sources, not summing a stereo signal, which has been done since the inversion of 2-channel sound. You can certainly do that. It's just that some low-end information is recorded in stereo, not often, and using a single channel to...
