Omg.
I stay away from the thread today to try not to spend more money on tubes.
Now all this Gumby and Yiggy talk is “inspiring” me to trade/sell a few HP’s for the Gumby. Yiggy too rich for this blood.

I’ve been in shock since the miracle in Minnesota . Sammy where y’at! Just nothing new to add. The dac integrated in to my home system has come insanely close to my turntable sound. Thanks to the ts 2c51s. I haven’t even bothered to roll in the other 5670s. The dac tube implementation is amazing. tubesin the amp and Dac.
Missed hanging out

Any tube recommendations for hd800S around ~100 $?

I have the HD800S's. I'd agree with TK for the money I think you get much more bang for the buck by going the 2c51 route with the adapters. TK prefers the Western Electric 396a's.
I prefer the Tung Sol 2c51 square getters. As he mentioned, you will need the 6n3 to ECC88 adapters (and they take a good 3-4 weeks, or more, to get to the US from Hong Kong).

Here's the link to the Tung Sols from a seller quite a few on this thread have bought from and trust...

A couple hours with the Tung-Sol 2C51 and not enjoying it as much as the Western Electric 396a.

The mids are nice though:ok_hand:. I just don’t think the MJ2 does it justice.

I have a Yggy but haven’t heard the Gumby. I think maybe mnros has. If so I’m sure he’ll chime in.

Edit: I have not yet sprung for the Analog 2 Yggy upgrade...but I will. I am accepting donations.
Omg.

Speaking of.... look what showed up today. You have it easy, man. I have 3 sockets to feed!
