Ok curiosity got the best of me and I'm SGD100 poorer but my ears are happy.
Bought a pair of JJ 6V6 and ECC803SS, a highly rated for audio long plate 12AX7. Definitely an upgrade over the stock tubes.
I'm definitely upgrading to JJs fairly soon.
Can you tell me how bright the JJs are compared to stock tubes? I'm running this as my bedside amp. The stock tubes are painted black inside with some light leaking out. It's brighter than I want in a dark room, but just tolerable.
I see the JJs are a clear tube. But do they light up fairly dim? I'm just afraid the whole amp may be too bright with the JJs.
It's a great sounding amp. It makes my Vali sound soft, weak, and veiled in comparison.
I don't think any tube is going to keep you awake at night, if that's what you're worried about.
What cans are you driving this amp with? I just joined the Fostex drop, and was thinking about getting this amp too.
