No, but you're coming across as critical when someone doesn't immediately embrace the tubes you've suggested. Maybe that's not your intent, but that's how it reads. Just sayin'.Tube rolling threads are subjective. How do you objectively analyze tubes? An oscilloscope? We go by what we hear and how it matches our preferences. For me, the three tubes I mentioned are better than another, especially since they are dirt cheap. I didn’t make any claims beyond that. It makes no sense to roll in a tube that costs as much as the amp.
I’ve rolled everything through the Vali 2+, including the kitchen sink, so of course I have lots of opinions.
If people want to come after me in a subjective thread and question my use of the word better or best, I’ve got better things to do than share my experiences here. I have a mountain of tubes, spare tubes, and plenty of time to burn. You all can spare me the indignity while I keep to myself.
If you want to take your ball and go home when someone offers an opinion that differs from yours, then that's obviously up to you.
