    Thank you for your exaustive response though

    on euforia thread i read somewhere that someone was complaining about the lack of bass/slam. to me is very important.
    espressivo has good bass. i am thinking about asking feliks to let me try elise for a couple of weeks and decide to keep it or not.

    I do not think that Euforia is lacking something compared to Espressivo. In general with these tube amps my problem is usually to lower the bass quantity. And Euforia has a bigger/better bass than Elise. So do not worry about bass in tube amps. And of course, if you can try it, it will always be the best way to go.

    Don't worry? You are telling me that elise has less bass of euforia! Now i am worrying asd

    Hi there, I hope I'm not going to make this even more confusing!, ... but the Elise has excellent bass, of course this depends on tubes used, recording, the rest of your setup, Headphones etc but if you use bassy tubes, with Elise such as Tung Sol 5998 for powers, Ken Rad 6sn7 for drivers, or EL38 for drivers (ADAPTER NEEDED) with EL11 or EL3N (ADAPTER NEEDED) for drivers also give excellent bass with good slam, Octavian is right about Euforia having fuller bass but with those tubes you will get very good, dynamic bass with the Elise, also I agree with everything else Octavian has said! :beyersmile:.

    Tung sol are very expensive and not so easy to find here in italy..
    What do you think about the stock tubes? Are they so bad to need replacement from day one?

    No you don't need to replace stock tubes from day 1.

    There are different types of honey. The stock honey aren't too bad. Hell, 'Stairway to heaven' will still sound like 'Stairway to heaven'. However once you've tasted the better honey tubes, it's hard to go back to stock honey.

    Hope all this honey business makes sense. Now listen to 'Stairway to heaven'.

    Wow this picture of Elise looks nice ! Amongst all my good power tubes, I still have the love for the Tung Sol 7236. Precision and dynamics.

    Angpsi !!! When ever I see your name, I'm reminded of Breakfast Club ! :) Trust that you are well and have move on to HiFi stereo.

    Hello H1, trust that you are well. Thread isn't the same when you retire. :)

    It's almost 4 years since I came to Head-Fi. Logic tells me I should have move on to the next hobby but the next one would probably be even more expensive !!!

    So this is my progression. Car audio > Head-Fi > HiFi. Time to retire !!! Alas I'm still working. :)

    Don !!!! Never say never again, that's the James Bond movie. :)

    How are you? Is the 'never' to work or retire from Head-Fi?
