    74 or 84, thinking 84? Mitchams. Not 100% sure on the year. When I get clearance to drive at least a week, going to be selling around 13 pairs of tubes, if your interested shoot me a PM bro.

    Dipped pins is not against the rules if you Bangybangtubes, this is possibility another screen name judging by the description and bad grammar.

    Very likely they won't be GE's from BangyBang. I bought his entire stock. He advertised them as genuine A2900's and gave me a package deal of $182,000 for all 364 of them. All tested, all perfect, and all guaranteed to work excellent for me. When he threw in the free shipping that sealed the deal as too good to pass up. And these things are absolutely pristine -- the lettering is so perfect it looks like they were just printed yesterday. Really amazing for tubes of this vintage. Only later did I find out they were re-silkscreened GE's, and too bad for me but he doesn't accept returns. Oh well. But at least I have a lot of GE's now if anybody wants some. Maybe stick a pair in the amp just before friends come over so you can show off your audiophile pedigree with your amp sporting A2900's?

    It's BangyBang. Apostrophe apocalypse. His trademark.

    Nothing shady in having at least 3 eBay stores right?!? Probably all ship from Los Vegas maybe?

    What??!?!?!? Did you find something better, or are you embarking on a new hobby like needlepoint or pottery?

    I never said I hated it. I said it sucked. Kinda like your advice here.

    I was kinda hoping someone would just tell me so that I didn't have to read the whole fkn thread.

    And after that, what's the best tube to get for my Lyr 3?

    That single tube AC linked. I'd offer $100 over the asking price, just to be sure you would get it.

    I've been refreshing my browser most of the day awaiting your wonderful and witty retort to my post. I'm sooooo disappointed. :frowning2:

    Great advice from the perspective of another converted 2-channel guy. At the end of the day, what are we all listening to? The AC power coming out of the wall. Yes, it's really that simple. Whatever comes after that only converts it into a format that our ears perceive as music. But the crappier the start, the crappier the finish.

    At the barest of bare minimums, get rid of that $0.29 contractor grade duplex outlet that everything is plugged into. 99% chance it has a hole in the back with an internal spring clip that the stripped end of the house Romex is stuck into. Contact area? About a billionth of a millimeter. The Romex oxidizes, the spring loses tension, and pretty soon that wire is vibrating around in that little hole causing all sorts of noise and fuzz that you didn't even know existed and were probably blaming on that last tube you bought on Ebay. No need to spend the long green on a fancy outlet, just get one with internal clamps so that there's a vise-like grip on the Romex wire.

    This is a Cooper brand, about $3.50 at Home Depot or Amazon. As you tighten the outer screws, that's a clamp piece inside the hole that grabs onto the bare Romex end and manhandles it like Hercules. No loosening, no vibrating, and most importantly, an exponentially higher surface area contact:


    If you want to go nuts, the Furutech GTX outlets are even awesome-er:


    And then if you want to showcase a textbook example of more money than brains, the carbon fiber wall plate will do it. Does it help the sound? No, at least not to my ears. But it looks so absolutely fck'n cool that the sonic properties are completely irrelevant. :relaxed::relaxed::relaxed:
