Anyone know the model or brand name of the pre-amp tube on the Darkvoice? Out of all the tubes I have tested the chi-fi tube is my favorite.
Which is something I find weird as well... I bought a couple of tubes, hoping they will improve the sound. I have read some bad reviews on the tubes that came with the amp in other forums posted over the years, but I feel the tube that got shipped has better soundstage and tonality, compared to some NOS tubes, even though it does sound harsh .
Makes me wonder if the tubes that get shipped out are different from past years? Has the quality improved? Recent reviews here seem to be more favourable and forgiving as well.
I think I'm going to make a post to take people's OEM pre-amp tube off their hands. It sucks because my darkvoice preamp tube that came with the unit just has a very faint marking of a J on the glass. I've bought 4 tubes now and none of them sound as good as the OEM one.
