    What's the change code on those mislabeled tubes? Ct*?

    Kind of thin, rather 2-dimensional soundstage and not much midrange color. They store pretty easily, but don't hold their value very well.

    Change code? If you have more change than @Ripper2860 I'll let you have them instead. Hopefully that's what you meant? :relaxed:

    4 quarters up to a max bid of $1?

    For the GE's? You're outta your mind, man. Maybe 4000 quarters...if I'm in a good mood.

    Oh wait...the 7316's? They're free, but only if you let me pay for shipping.

    I don't know many people with these Hivac tubes , but all I can say is they're definitely top tier contenders. For sure in my top 3. I'm only 5 hours in lol.

    The Brimar 13D9s are great, good sound stage/depth, a bit of warmth without being too tubey, nice detail and energy. Glad I bought 2 pair. Lol. They are definitely top 10 for me, #6 for now... (See my running ranking in my profile if interested).

    There are not many reviews for the Cayin HA-1A Mk2. Is this amp in the same ballpark as the LP or MJ2 or even worth an audition?

    I got mine rated 8th so far. Not easy for a tube to crack my top 10 list.

    I'm thinking the Cayin HA-1A Mk2 amp most not be worth my consideration if there are no opinions on this amp from forum members.
    You guys are tough and, for the most part, honest critics!!!

    OK, the guy who owned both amps did reply............. BUT I was looking for advice from the guys on THIS forum that know tubes as well as tube amps!!!

    Yes, TK16 that would indeed include YOU and your opinion!!!

    Was just messing with you. 12 was a gross over estimation, 8 tops.

    Yes, I'm guilty as charged for posting in more than 1 forum!!!

    I really just wanted a honest answer about the Cayin, cheap junk or worth considering..............

    As @Ripper2860 would say in Cartman's voice:

    "Screw you guys, I'm goin Home!"

    Don`t mention the Brimar CV2492 to @Ripper2860 , a bit of a senstitive topic, please don`t share this private message!
