My 336SE turned up today from Drop here in the Netherlands. First listen with the Verite Closed is nice, but I assumed that the tubes that came with the DV aren't the best.

What's a nice upgrade here, with the VC's?

The world is yours...so many to chose from...get ready to empty your bank account. Currently jamming to Sylvania VT-231 & 5998... Sweet mix.

Glad it was a typo

How does the 5998 compares to the 6AS7G ?

It's an immediate upgrade, one you won't have to swap back an fourth to pick up on. They squeeze everything out of any tube in front of it.... everything... worth the hunt. 6520 with domino plates are disguised 5998.. 421a are premium 5998.

Pet peeve of the day...
Paying a premium for certain tubes and getting no boxes for them.
Just irritates me...
I mean they are at least bubble wrapped but c'mon...how am I supposed to store these unless I buy the boxes?

Maybe old light bulb boxes?
Aw, man...boxes are cheap. None of my Fotons had boxes (initially). Cheap Russians. :sweat_smile: :sweat_smile:

Only $3000!? 😒
...or $145 a month for 24 months on PayPal credit 😂
...then the killer...$100 shipping because it comes to you via teleporter.

The kicker is it just tests OK...like its barely above minimum. But yeah...better be delivered by transporter in a diamond blinged out box.

@bcowen I’m gonna wait until you buy another amp, then offer Mrs. bcowen $500 *cash* for that closet of glass. Bwahh ha ha! 😀
Mrs. bcowen has already been properly educated. She still has no clue what a tube is or does, but she is aware that the stash could probably buy her 1k pairs of shoes. That she understands. :laughing:
