Do you think the 6238 tubes sound more analytical and not as smooth as stock and sonotones tubes?

Tubes are tubes and they will not sounds extremely analytical no mater what) 6832 is definitely sounds more clear, resolving and airy then Sonotone 5719, what was installed in my CDM before. The hights with 6832 are significantly more detailed then with Sonotone as well.
However that might be a case of my particular Sonotones as I got it used with my CDM and I don't know how many hours they were in use. 6832 that I installed were NOS and never used for sure.

Interested in opinions: is such a temperature (in celcius) is not harmful for CDM with long term listening sessions (about 4 hours)? This was a heating level, scored with Raytheon 6832 after about an hour of listening. CDM gets noticeably hot (can't leave a hand on its "window", longer then 5 sec), especially the glass part, both heaphones outs (2.5mm and 3.5mm) and volume control knob areas.

That sounds relatively normal for dual triode tubes in the CDM. It is designed to run hot, including too hot to touch. Single triode tubes will lower the operating temp substantially if it bothers you, as well using the line in instead of the onboard DAC.

6832 sounds more full body to me, compare to Sonotone tubes (can't compare with the stock ones, as I never heard it). However keep in mind, that with 6832 you will get the maximal heating level, which means that your cdm will be seriously hot after few hours of listening. This is very serious thing, which you need to keep in mind (IMHO), as such a heating level might be really dangerous for batteries inside of the cdm. Just my 5 cents.

Ok, i got it working...but...all tracks light up with the blue led regardless of sample rate, this happens using Foobar or J River. I'm sure someone ran into this issue here?
