    @Dawgfish first off welcome to the thread! Lots of great people here and good advice! If you have time go back to page 1241 and read from there, lots of great information including the information @AuditoryCanvas was talking about, I included a screenshot of that information that starts on page 1241 of this thread. Hope this information helps!

    Thank you so much for the welcome and all of the great info! It's great to have options and I'm just glad I don't have to start from scratch accumulating a bunch of tubes to try. I had a much more lucrative job when I accumulated most of my tubes in the past and I couldn't do the same thing now. Can't wait to get the adapters and try some of my favorite 12AU7 and 12AX7 types. Also glad I have a few 6DJ8 types to try until the adaptors come in. Waiting on stuff being shipped from China can try one's patience! Lol!

    No problem, glad I could help, I think you will really enjoy your 12**7 family of tubes in your amp! Glad you have some 6DJ8 to listen too for a while as the adapters from China can take a while to arrive (mine took just over 2 weeks) another piece of advice if you don’t already have a pair of socket savers I recommend getting a pair, most of us here have the Tubemonger socket savers, here is the link: https://www.tubemonger.com/NOVIB_Socket_Saver_1960s_NOS_British_McMurdo_B9A_p/novib-mcmurdo.htm

    Don`t buy from this seller. Ordered stuff April 1 and no communication, shipping notice or tracking. Have to open a case tomorrow to get my money back.

    Using the above setup to power the Argons at home. Will be using the Lyr 2 at work when it arrives. I just got a Dyson Audio speaker to balanced XLR headphone adaptor in today to use a Primaluna Prologue 4 to power the Argons and just set up a tentative setup to try it out. I'm streaming Tidal MQA files using an LGV35 with quad dac feeding a Liquid Spark as a master volume control into the Primaluna. The Primaluna is using Tung Sol KT-120 power tubes with RCA 5751 TM BPs and CBS-Hytron 5814s as signal tubes. The combo is stunning! I'm going to also be using a MHDT NOS tube dac with this setup, but just quickly set this up to test and only had two power outlets avaible at this location. The thing that is really surprising is how quiet this setup is! Very, very little hiss and noise is apparent even between tracks with the master volume turned up relatively loud. Really digging this!

    It's hard to see but there's a Magni 2 Uber in the pic just above the Primaluna in the background. Tried it as the volume control first. Got to say the Liquid Spark has much better synergy with this setup as a preamp than the Magni 2 Uber. What's going to be interesting is trying the Lyr 2 as the preamp as I generally prefer running tube preamps with tube amps (very much like the combo of tube preamps with solid state amps though). I have a couple of spare tube preamps laying around, but they are both too large for this setup. The preamp I use in my main system is a Joule Electra LA-150 MK2 and it's twice the size of the Primaluna!

    Been toying with the idea of using the MJ2 as a preamp for the Liquid Platinum. Tried it but couldn't get it to work. Don't think I had them connected right. Never used an amp as a pre amp.

    I put the blame square on you. You should of bought all of them first time out. Guy got 11 negatives just in the last few weeks. He's ruining his reputation. From memory he has 11 negative, 2 neutral and 89 positive this month. I think most buyers look at the feedback before buying. I'd recommend everyone stay away from him.
