    Got it. I have not tried my HD 650 or 600 with the we396a, but i know my DT 1770 are more sensitive.

    Your description makes sense, but I did not hear any hum in high gain with a pair GE JAN 5670W with Sennheiser 650 or Byer T1

    I always use my Valhalla 2 high gain, no hiss or problems with 5670's. I mostly use Grado HP.

    Interesting . . .I thought Grado's with low impedence would not be a good match with the Vahalla 2 and especially on high gain. You must have some super quiet tubes.

    I don't hear any hum using Sung-Tol 2C51s on high gain with Sennheiser HD 700 and HD 6XX.

    Grado HP in Valhalla? How does do they perform together?

    Thanks for all the feedback! I think I might have some noisy tubes. Time to try one of my back up pairs and if that does not work, I am going to try another set of adapters.

    Sounds great. Not as loud as my Vali 2, but more bass ( a little warm'n tubby not overly though) and much nicer highs. Sounds very spacious. Volume is about halfway tops !

    No....I just have some GE5670's with adapters and the stock russian amp tubes. Maybe I got a special amp ? Has plenty of power.

    I have tried three types tubes with the adapter: GE 5670W, Sylvania 2C51, and the Russian 6N3P. I think I like the GE 5670s the best.

    The Western Electric 396A was the first 396A/2C51/5670 pair of tubes I tried and are my absolute favorite of those variants. Better than the vast majority of all the 6922 variants I ever heard, if not the best.

    According to the price on Ebay, any Western Electric 396A should sound GOOD, right?

    Here to report, an update of my experience with my WE396A's, after about 60 hours of listening. . . MIND BLOWN!!! These tubes have opened up from top to bottom, without any hint of harshness in the top end and they have become super quiet as well. I have never heard imaging and seperation, so well. I can visualize the performance and placement of the instruments as if I was sitting in the room. Freaking amazing listening experience, everytime I fire them up. These tubes have really taken my system to another level and I am not exaggerating at all.
