    I wasnt referrimg to you Bill. Even though you are great advocate for the united nations.

    Its more people that swear they have found the most transparent thing and then later concede it may not have been

    I too have had my own journey in styles and sound preference and wallet abuse.

    Ps the gec 6as7g tubes are the best ever!!

    Hmmm. You know me. I can't resist something new. Lol.

    But I want to be guilty. You know, Catholic school and all. Plus at Preacher Sammy's last tent revival he encouraged his rabid crowd of "followers" to stone the sins right out of me. Trust me that is NOT a place you want to find yourself. I thought maybe taking the guilty plea on your post might help.

    The 1975 version was supposed to be the best version and a noticeable step up from the '74. I had 4 or 5 pairs of the 75's at one point. I like them a lot. Not as much as the the 5670 variant though. And, as I have said, not as much as the WE tubes.

    Well, you can say that. But, the 5670 tubes, specifically the WE "JW" 2C51 tubes, were an absolute revelation to my ears. I never in a million years thought I would sell all of my Siemens CCa and Telefunken CCa tubes. No way, no how! Yet, here we are! I am not one to jump on bandwagons and I find the characterization insulting.

    Bought 2 more pair of the Tung Sol 2C51's. They wound up being my second favorite 5670 tubes after the WE 396A, and the combo of WE and TS in my dac and amp is my favorite pairing.

    Hope this isn't a silly question but can you stack socket savers to elevate tubes even further?
    NM. yes you can

    Yep. That's the only way to get big tubes like the 6C8Gs and their adapters clear of the top of the Lyr.

    Not so much a bandwagon as a revolving door. To me the tube rolling satisfies that that nasty little upgraditus at a fraction of the cost of components. The introduction of the 5670 tubes may have saved the nm24 from the scrapheap. At least with the iha6 as the amp. Softening the treble while increasing the detail and maintaining musicality. The chrome domes did the same for the lyr and vibro but with lushness over technical ability . So guilty as well.

    Yes TK. Bought those after the cursed grammpas
