tctubes is a very reliable supplier who honestly tests the tubes he sells. He also stands behind his tubes, I had a 1952 Bad Boy fail on me in one week and got a refund on return no problem. Try an early 1950s Sylvania 6SN7GT. Also take a look at Brent Jessee for Sylvanias or other 6SN7GTs. The Holy Grail of 6SN7GT tubes is the 1940s Tung Sol black round plates, oval or round micas with black glass ... but they are usually over $200.Hey everybody, I'm looking for some tube recommendations for Saga.
I want to try a new tube in my Saga and don't really know where to start. For reference, I know almost nothing about tubes, so I'm a complete novice in this regard. I originally bought my Saga with the stock tube, then eventually purchased the Tung-Sol tube Schiit sells and have been using that since. I like what I hear so I'm not trying to change the sound in any specific way. I just want to experiment a bit.
Really all I'm looking for is for anyone to share the tubes they like (that work with Saga) and to link to where it can be bought, if possible. Or if this has been discussed elsewhere before, a link to that would be great too.
Regarding the Sol power output port: I've seen it at the Schiitr, and as others have already speculated, the power output port is for connection to the motor pod, which is a completely separate unit from the plinth.
Regarding Mike's latest post: I want to say I'm excited for whatever is coming. I bet "that which cannot be named" is something other than Unison (which has... already been named) and the transport. No clue as to what it is though. As always, I'm itching for a Bifrost update. I also really hope the dynamic range expander becomes a reality, because I'd buy that in a heartbeat.
