What does everyone think about MQA? I've been using it with Project Pre Box 2 Digital, Meridian Explorer2 and Dragonfly Red. Wondering if I should continue down this path or jump ship and look for an alternative DAC upgrade.

How do you guys feel about receiving tubes with no boxes? Nothing mentioned in the ad that they’ll come shipped in 10lbs of bubble wrap, peanuts and tape on each tube. Personally I think it’s BS. What happens if I’m not a tube roller and do t have spare boxes. Now I gotta buy a lot of them for This single pair of tubes? BS.

7062 Heerlens are kind of the swiss army knife of tubes. They do everything well, not excelling in one area, just a nice all around do it all tube. And good depth too! :slight_smile:

Haha. Wasn’t GE tubes.
Doesn’t matter actually, it’s still a bunch of Cr@p. He’ll be getting a nice message from me.

Ouch! :zap:LOL

Putting tape on NOS tubes which destroys whatever is left of the (chalky/unstable) printing,
should send that flukker straight to purgatory! I hate that too!

[but there is an ez diy fix for making just a couple boxes. ]

You don't need boxes just keep the GE tubes in the amp 24/7 365. Hopefully they'll burn out sooner than later.

Got plenty of boxes. Was a hypothetical.
If I wanted to buy something individually wrapped, I would have bought some imitation cheese. I’m pi$$ed as this guy is shady.

Lol The MP of RCA 12au7s I bought off Etsy came in a small box with the tubes wrapped in small swatches
of last Sunday’s newspaper ads for such things as .... imitation cheese!

The tubes were Indiv wrapped like 2 big ugly tootsie rolls!
But total cost was only $25, and luckily they turned out to be great tubes

lol I saw someone who shall remain nameless mention GE, RCA's are worthy of some boxes. Though if the seller did not mention boxes in the ad, I'd just let it go. I got a pair of Mullard Blackburn ECC82 square getters with no boxes, now those deserve boxes.

I Should have her (B-stock) at my place by Thursday/Fri :beerchug:. The Lyr is sweet (literally) with more tube warmth than resolution.
No sense in buying hi end tubes if ya can’t hear all their glory
