    Thank you, i also got a tung sol 6sn7wgtb to throw in it. This my first ever tube amp so im kinda excited for it to get here.

    This amp plays best with high impedence headphones, just take note of that, and congrats, off to a great start, nice buy there on the RCA.

    As of right now, my highest are hd58x jubilee's @150ohms. Next purchase will be hd6xx. Just got my emotiva basx, think ill finally be set on amps once my darkvoice arrives.

    I kinda disagree. I use it with Akg k812 Pro and Oppo PM-2, both low impedance cans (36 and 32 Ohms) and the sound is spectacular.

    Nice, what tube combo are you using? The general census is that OTL amps by design put out more power at higher impedence, planars in general, even at lower ohms play best with higher power output than say dynamic headphones, but if your having a great experience then hey, more power to you, your headphones might be the exception, also alternate 6AS7 tubes or comparable, can aid in power output, thats why I'm curious what combo you have.

    Got my DV today, so far it sounds amazing and the RCA tube works just fine. Ive tested it with my 58x jubilees and my k7xx. Both sound amazing. The k7xx already has a wide soundstage this just opened it up even more.

    My tower of power!!

    Now this is an interesting combo that I'm about to try, the Western Electric 421A with the ShuGuang CV181-Z (Black Treasure). 2019-03-24 13.07.02-1.jpg

    The one thats the real deal HOLYFIELD has 3 holes and copper wiring at the bottom. And they are not cheap. Shouldnt be that much of a sonic difference though, I dont know really, I almost grabbed one myself, have 2 General Electrics 6SN7GTA coming in today. Tell us what you think about the Sylvania when you get it.

    Thinking I goofed on the 6SN7GTA tubes.. requires higher amp output ... X( the way I'm reading it says if my amp is made specifically for the GTA then no other 6SN7 types can be used.. the darkvoice is not GTA specific so I should be good...right?

    Yes, any 6sn7 variant should be good

    That looks like an amazing combo, Expensive, but amazing. Waiting to hear your feedback
