Woaaaa, no more Stax eh

Even though Stax is stationary and is inconvenient, but the performances when you have a correct setup is blissful Music ! Movies ! You name it ...... totally worth it


Those JJ 6CA7s you have installed are nice. I bought a quad on your recommendation.

But you need some NOS/used OS Mullards to really squeeze the magic out of the GG.

Got a quad of good used OS 1974 vintage Blackburn xf3s around a month ago, put them in and the amp was transformed. Everything sounds just so correct, balanced and stunningly realistic now. So I went vintage crazy and now have a quad of mint NOS 1960 vintage Philips/Valvo (L code-made in Brussels) DD getter brown base EL34s in the mail from Germany. Thank G*d there were no good Philips metal base EL34s on eBay or I’d be living on Top Ramen and hot dogs until 2020.

I must say along with many others, no new production EL34/6CA7/KT77 can match the musicality of those grand old tubes.
