    Good to hear that about the Mullard 6201's, I can't wait to listen to them. I think I bought the ones off of the Bay that you linked.

    Yes, I think that's him. Very attentive!

    Have some nice tubes incoming! let me know how you like the Telefunken ECC81.

    I have only recently been bit by the Tube Bug! All started way back in February of this year....lol

    Thanks for the impressions on the RCA 6201’s

    Thank you! The MJ2 is an excellent amp really glad I bought one, the 6N3P Reflektor 3x micas are good tubes! With just the little bit of listening I have done with these tubes I like them! will definitely make my top 10 list, just not sure where they will place yet as I have several tubes I still need to burn in.

    After first listen, I concur that the RCA 12AU7 clear tops are a nice listen and good value, probably best suited for some types of jazz and rock/electronica. They have warmth with a smaller soundstage, the treble rolls off nicely. My first pair seem to have a dip somewhere in the midrange and I'm not sure if its due to the warmth/tubiness or the frequency response of the tubes, I'll do a comparison when my second pair arrives.

    The RCA 5963 are similar and have a larger soundstage, a bit more depth and better seperation, they also don't have the dip in the midrange. I find the greater separation to not be as good for rock music. (YMMV as these findings are quite subjective).

    Thanks for looking out! I can't find any info on mullard even having an "S" mica.

    They may be legit but way overpriced for a 12AT7.

    I blew up my focal listens :frowning2: Any recommendations for a pair of closed backs with good isolation that pair well with the LYR 2 for under $500? Something neutral/slightly warm.

    If you'd consider used lovingly pre-owned, the Mr. Speakers Aeon Flow Closed are worth considering. Easy to drive, slightly to the warm side, and around $500 is the going price for used ones. I'm not selling mine, but they pop up in the sale forum here every now and then.

    I second that recommendation - I'm not selling mine either:)

    Dang. If only @DRHamp had been a little more prompt with his response....
