Heya russman,
welcome to head-fi! I think you made a good choice of tubes to try, I'm still looking for some of the mullard's to try myself so I can't speak from experience but it surely will be a large improvement over the stock tubes. Enjoy your 332 tube rolling... and sorry about your wallet.

By the way, I just saw that they have some Mullards for $4.75/tube at:

Antique Electronic Supply

They are listed as: "5654/6AK5W - PENTODE, SHARP CUTOFF, RF, MULLARD LABELED CV4010." The picture of the tube has "Mullard M8100" on it. You could call/email them to find out more.

Good combo, Russman. Look also for the CV4010s - they are the military version of the M8100s.


Isn't the M8100 the military version of the CV4010?

Thank you godkin, shellylh, zodduska.
Seems like these tubes are hard to find.. i manage to find a store in taiwan that sells these mullards, but they have two version.. so i dont know are these good ones or clones? Seems like they have plenty of stocks.

this http://www.audio.idv.tw/shop/product...roducts_id=271

and this
http://www.audio.idv.tw/shop/product...roducts_id=521

and, is tube matching crucial?



I ordered 4 matched M8100s (from your first link) from them and everything went fine. I paid directly with paypal and the tubes were sent to me the next day, shipping was fast as far as I remember.
I'm using 2 of them and a friend of mine is using the other pair and we're both satisfied.

I don't think it's a problem if your tubes aren't matched. My Ulyanovsks aren't matched and they work perfectly fine too.
However this shop provides a cheap matching service so if you want to, have them matched.

Be careful with wen audio. The say they sell pairs but in reality you're only buying one tube. If you buy two pairs of tubes they will only send you two tubes rather than 4 tubes. Paypal won't cover your losses either.

I bought 4 M8100s from them but only received two and one of them turned out to be defective... Buy directly from ebay if you can because at least paypal will give you some protection that way.

The DV332 supposedly excels with higher impedance cans...



It sounds very good with the AD2000s - though, better with the Senns.
