That's a very good video clip, I watched it couple of weeks ago.
In the comments section below the clip, people are debating which one is better...very subjective as always
RCA 6SN7 has great mids, but you want less bass so I would recommend Sylvania 6SN7
Yeah - gotta remember that this is very subjective. While for the most part, NOS tubes are usually better, I think there are some re-issues that come close or are as good. I think this re-issue tung-sol personally is one of them. When I had a Vali 2, I used this re-issue tube heavily - it had that sound stage, airy top end and sparkle I was looking for. Unfortunately, I could never get this re-issue tube to be silent enough on the DV, even when I left it near a week to burn-in, still had a persistent hum and I gave up on it. I think when it works, its a really good tube for a re-issue. But thats just me.
Didn't want to discourage him with tubes that cost more than the amp itself..
You might have liked the tube, it was my first tube and I liked it it a lot before getting to know more about the NOS tubes. less bass...hmm, RCA 6SN7GT grey glass, Westinghouse 6SN7GTB, tall bottle NOS Tung Sol 6SN7GTB, . Every Sylvania I've tried has a nice bass hump, so stay away from those if you don't want bass. I'm the opposite..I look for BASS. to each their own. Get mid 1950's to upper 1940's and your set (Westinghouse 1960's are good, if not a steal for the price) . Good Luck!
Edit: I errored in saying the Raytheon WGT had no bass...it's quite the opposite!
My GEC pair came in awhile back and long story short, these GEC CV4079z were said, recommended to me, to have the GEC 6AS7G sound for a fraction of the price... so I jumped in with two feet. Looks nice but don't even waste your monies on any 6AS7G adapters folks, JUST DOESN'T WORK. This is two strikes as the first strike came in on the 6BL7 experiment. I think it's just the DArkvoice design. So done with 6AS7G hack experiments!
The adapter seems to come from Dayen, does it?
Yes, not his fault the Darkvoice is funky and unusual, the chifi adapters didn't work either.
I see...could be the case that when you use dual tubes for the 6AS7 socket, the combination has parameters way off DV's design range hence leads to terrible sound
