    Nah you have great ears in now this for a fact. I’m just sharing my experience that’s all. Mostly that you don’t need to chase down rare unobtanium driver tubes because they are all the same technically. Excerpt the 6CG7 which should just be avoided.

    Spend time/effort on the 2a3 tubes and rectifier instead.

    I actually like Sylvania 6BK7Bs, that's why I have a stash of them. As for 2A3s and rectifiers, I think I'm doing pretty well at this point :D

    Definitely! sorry, I was just inspired to make that post which I've been meaning to make for a long time it was not in reference to your like of the Sylania 6BK7B at all.

    And your Tatsukie's might sound great with my Stratus and Audeze's, my previous test was with Stellaris and my RD-S12 which just does not work with either DNA amp.

    I've got tons of respect for you though, please know that. Publicly acknowledged respect! :bow:

    And your hearing. We may have different priorities though given your Holo love and my Yggdrasil love and the 6BQ7A vs 6BK7B. but that's normal from person to person.
