    Oh... No no no... the difference are very subtle. So if you like your short brown base, stop obsessing! ;)

    I paid 1600 SEK (182€/245$) for a NOS ECC35 (both black and brown base) from Roland @ tangotubes.com. Don't know if he has any left.   Want me to check?

    Want me to see if I can help you finding a NOS one?   Not Anax 3.0 yet... He who not must be named here, I hope you understand even if you don't agree (), hasn't made the 3.0 public yet.   /V

    I loved that baby... But Anax-modding the HD800 w/ the Tall Black Base became my fave.. :)   /V

    This weather is not complying well with parcels...   I have a Eddie Current 2A3 stuck somewhere between France and Sweden, nobody knows exactly where, even though i have a DHL tracking number as well as several parcls with cigars somewhere between US and Sweden.   Be patient.. ;)

    Hey mate,   I bought an updated 2A3, so it's more of a side-grade than uprade. :)   I want to start experimenting with high efficiency speakers.'   All the best, V

    I think Luis will do everything you ask, especially if you're a government official from Washington.

    Let me know if you need any unusual stuff. Tangotubes.com (Roland) is a swede that I have good contact with and he has a lot of premium tubes. Not cheap. But definitely NOS as in NOS.

      Hi mate!   I prefer the Tall Black Base... It's a bit more neutral while the short brown base was a bit more euphonic. It's a matter of taste. So try them out, pick the one you prefer (... and the differences aren't THAT big...)   Regarding the Full Music & Sophia Electric. The official...

    New high-end headphone amps: Vorzuge VorzAMPpure and VorzAMPduo impressions and review thread

    http://vorzuge.com/products/vorzamp/vorzamppure-ii   Prices are starting to get ALO Audio / RSA-ridiculous.   Too bad, at least the 1st gen was a pretty good amp, overpriced but good. Now they fixed the problems with the first gen and bump it up 135 USD. For what... A gain switch? HAH.  ...

    They're quite different... 6SL7/ECC35 is a high gain tube, while 6SN7/ECC32 is a more moderately gain tube. The heater current of ECC35 is 0,4A While ECC32 s 0,95A Often this part limits it's use... If an amp is made for 6SN7 it's possible that 6SL7 can be used (lower current-needs) however...
