Yuck. I'm not even gonna Validate that with a response.

Ooops. :laughing:

I see what you did there, but the fact that you hate it adds even more credibility to its awesomeness. 😜

My wife ordered a Vali 2 for my birthday at the end of September today. There's a three-to-five-week delay. I'm anxious to see which version I get and to listen to how it sounds. I'll check back in.
I predict you will love either version. I have oodles of tubes for the single+ Vali 2, so I am in good shape with mine.

That's a hemostat? I thought it was a roach clip.

Making a note if it now...

:laughing:
Triple use.

Wait until you see surgeons use them to stem venous blood flow. It will blow your mind.

Best watched from the upper gallery of the operating theater, with a fat spliff, and a nice hemostat.

So far I like all the tubes in the Vali 2++.

WE 396a used for $30 (60s), Sylvania 5670 NIB for $13 (triple mica), Tung Sol 2c51 NIB for $60/pair (1958), 6n3p-E NIB - $9 pair (and NOS they claim - 1977, otk 2) and the stock 6n3p.

What do you guys think of the Command RCA 5670? Is Command RCA really a great tube, or hype?

It's amazing how well these little tubes and this tiny amplifier drive these DCA planar headphones far better than FV -- which shrivels up.
