    What's the best tube to get if I want to add more bass and soundstage to my HD650? I only have stock tube right now

    Is there one that doesn't require an adapter?

    What you will find is that the 5670 family of tubes cost a lot less than the 6922 family of tubes. They are electrically compatible but the pinouts are different. The adapter is cheap and allows your try some great inexpensive tubes. The quality of that WE396A for $35 is stunning. You cannot beat it with a 6922 tube for the price.

    So would you all recommend starting with the stock tube or switch it out from the get go? Headphones will be starting off with are the Akg k553 pro and Sennheiser hd 439. Everything else I have are custom Iems.

    Can anyone compare the eh6922 gold to the gold lion?

    I'm not good at putting these kinds of things into words, but I can try.
    I find the EH to be darker.
    I find the gold lion to be more airy and sparkly.
    Personally, I prefer the gold lion most of the time.
    Disclosure: I haven't used my Vali 2 too much in the last few months.

    Just ordered the Gold Lion to arrive when the Vali 2 does but think I need the eh also. Will try to find one at a good price.

    I've used for a couple of months an Electro Harmonix 6922 / E88CC Gold pin and i agree is smooth and nice.. but doesnt give a nice Tubey sound, any good idea for a better tube to roll and have the vali 2 more tubey?
  12. RickB
    The EH 6CG7 is somewhat more tubey, but I don't think you're going to get a very tubey sound out of the Vali 2.

    Note: I haven't tried any of the tubes that require an adapter.

    I would give the EH 6cg7 a try.

    Gold or regular? Whats the difference in the sound?
  15. winders
    None of the modern tubes are going to sound all that great. I would still recommend getting a 5670 to 6922 adapter and try the Western Electric 396A tube.
