    Thanks very much for your reply. Do you intend to do any modifications to the Darkvoice? If so, what are you planning.

    So i just ordered the darkvoice 336se online. Heard that stock tubes aren't worth it. Will be in Osaka Japan this week. Any place i can order tubes and what would be recommended with use with Sennheiser HD6XX

    I highly recommend the 6f8g. Although it is starting to become scarce, it is still available in short supply on ebay. It is quite a sweet sounding tube without being gushy. You will need an adapter for it because of the top contact. Any of the better quality 6080 tubes are good and readily available. Best, JS

    Thank sir. Will search for these.

    Just because I am in my mid-70s you don't need to call me sir. Best, JS

    I am using this combo:
    NOS USA Tung-Sol Tall Bottle 6SN7 Driver with NOS USA Tung-Sol 7236 Power.

    I have the HD 700's
     
  8. Jim Spec
    That should sound quite good. I am not familiar with the 7236 power tube but will look into it. It must be a cousin of the 6080. Should you decide to sell you HD700s reasonably, I would be interested.

    Didn't mean to offend. :)

    Cheers! Appreciate the help. This tube-rolling thing excites me!

    Jim Spec:

    Yes the 7236 and the 5998 Tubes have more power than the 6AS7's. I have not found the Western Electric 421A yet. They are supposed to be the best.

    Changing it up right now. Trying this setup:
    [​IMG]
    NOS JAN Sylvania 5998A Power, NOS Sylvania 6SN7 Driver. So far this combo is not bright. Very warm. Still has power as well.

    Hello!

    I want to know if you tested the following tubes and if they are good options for the DV:

    1-GE 6AS7GA:

    Rafa:

    For my power tubes I have only used the RCA and the NOS JAN RCA Tall Bottle 6AS7. I have recently been using the NOS Tung-Sol 7263 or the NOS Sylvania 5998A. For Drivers I have used various NOS 6SN7's like RCA, Sylvania, Tung-Sol. Basically because most of the reviews were positive for those tubes so I stick with them.

    I have not used the Thomson CSF 6080WA FSE 8044 FF. However I believe the others to be quite good. My DV has bit the dust in one channel.

    This is a good excuse and perfect timing to tear apart your DarkVoice and completely do all the known modifications to mankind . I've been dying for excuse to take mine apart.
