    You're definitely not the only one who has had "noisy tubes" in specifically Freya and not elsewhere. I don't think more tubes is the answer unfortunately...

    It's the 15db gain, plus any gain from the amp after it. Try inline attenuators after the output.

    I do have some Rothwell attenuators lying around somewhere. I'll see if they help with the noise....

    100% - I threw some 6db attenuators in on my amp inputs and noisy-tubes-with-hi-eff-speakers problem solved.
