Schiit related post, for those considering b stock saga - the preamp is very neutral with the stock tube. That being said, it responds very well to different tubes. A friend on here sent me a Foton 6SN7 from 1953 or so. I was amazed at how it changed the sound. It added more bass, which I like, but the big seller for me was how it brought out the treble. It adds this lively color to the top end. Saga is my first tube experience, pretty cool stuff. Saga comes with the old crappy black remote, if you want the nice one spend the extra 17 dollars on the aluminum one.
