I will be VERY interested in your opinion on this one. Keep us up to date on what you think of it.

Cheers.
CV181-Z ShuGuang Treasures

Sounds like this thing has a Solid State amp in it..lol.. super precise (for a tube) and great imaging, instruments are clearly separated, and the bass... so accurate. I wanted/needed to pair it with a warm power tube (Philco 6AS7G) to tame it a bit. 6080 tube not needed here.. this thing has some Umph to it. My personal favorite "might" still be the romantic sounding Westinghouse 6SN7GTB (w/ Philips ECG 6080WC) combo. The Black Treasure will reward a great recording for sure. Highs, mids, lows, .. all sounding great to my ears, and this tubes only 48 hours broken in.. I read the magic begins at 100 hours. I also read that this tube mates well with an RCA from several users, so have one coming in soon, I can't imagine it sounding any better than what's dancing off my HD6XX cans right now. :) The only knock on the Treasure is a very low hum on initial start up, dam Chi-Fi. Gone of course after the burn in period, no noises of anything after that...pitch black.

Turns out the Philco tube I already had is a rebranded, made by RCA. So there you have it folks. If you want a NOS 6AS7G tube, grab a RCA or Chatham, whatever's cheaper...their all the same if they were made in the USA from 50's on up. This from the 6AS7G thread.

OOOOOOH!!!! Now THIS one, I'm really interested in. Give us your thoughts on it. I might buy one, although, I have swapped so many tubes by now, that I'm pretty set on my Tung-Sol 7236/Philips combination.. MAN does it freaking kick ass on Rock and EDM.!!!!

That's the cool thing about tubes, you can mix and match the sound to your moods.

You should save some £ for your next amp/dac instead of investing on these tubes. Unless you plan to be a tube dealer. :) Then you need to buy all those GEC 6as7g, 421a, b65, ECC35 33 on the market now at some discount. :)

Maybe this batch too and sell some to your buddy, ggillies/dobigstuff here.

Agree, get the best sounding tube according to your listening preference from your collection and at least an spare and sell all those that you do not used and will just collect dust. Then buy the proceed a Schiit Jot, so that you have an SS too. Better to have some variety of SQ from both tube and SS according to your mood.

Oops, you have an Audio-GD NFB11.28 which I heard a nice sounding dac/amp too. It is just an advice as if you are not careful, you will slowly accumulating tube which you will not use. Like you, I have many tubes too and almost bought 5998, just can't justify the price and the risk of receiving a defective one. It is impossible for me to return as a defective from my place to US where I usually buy tubes. Right now, I am very happy with Sylvania VT-231 driver and TUNG SOL 7236 power tubes. :beerchug:

.. I was starting to think my wife put you guys up to this. She told me last week.. "If one more light bulb comes in the mail!!!!"
I'm a Capricorn so if you know them they jump in two feet on any project or said hobby. Don't know what would happened if I got the LaFigaro amp instead of this one, 2 of each tube... $$$$.. :D So yeah, I am still wanting that one last tube to crown my little collection. The Mother Of All 5998 tubes... The Western Electric 421a. Then I feel I could ride into the sunset. Or not.
