    Thanks for the tip! After a couple of years my Vali 2 developed a hum problem not tube related so I bought a new one and it is v1.1.

    Thanks! Now what if I wanted to use the Jot as a preamp for the Vali 2 so I could switch between them easier? Would I turn the Vali 2 all the way up in this case?

    If you want to switch between them it's better to use y-splitters

    Or Schiit Sys if you want an actual switch

    Picked up an Amperex ECC88/6DJ8 Orange Globe Logo O-Getter tube today and it sounds pretty good. I want to say that it sounds better than the stock NOS 6BZ7 tube, but I'll have to spend some more time swapping between them to see.

    The seller listed the tube measurement as:
    9000/10100
    where minimum good value is 7750

    Do those measurements really mean anything? Could it mean that the one side is quieter?

    Yes, it could mean just that. Then again it could mean nothing. If it sounds good, just listen to the music and enjoy.
