I picked this up at the last minute as i have some nice headphones and would like to see what they can *really* do. Question for the tube rollers: i will ONLY be utilizing the headphone amp portion as a one-way RCA in, not the preamp as i have the coveted Conrad Johnson MET1 for that...so am i only concerned with ONE of the tubes (the large one) in that configuration? How do the tubes break down for output?
The tube that affects the most sonically is the 6SN7. Rolling the 6AS7G may be useful for low impedance headphones, on high Z headphones (6XX) for example, 6AS7G will have minimum impact vs 6SN7.
True! The input tube always has the most effect on the tone. The tone from the input tube gets amplified by the later tubes, so if that sounds bad the other tubes will just make it worse! ;^)
